    interesting placement....placing it next to the Surface Laptop......and not next to the Pro which we are all presuming this will be the smaller version of it.......Probably reading too into it....but now I'm wondering if it really will have a kickstand.....or opt for a new style or form.....like a kickstand integrated into the keyboard cover or something.

    I sure hope you're reading too much into it. A kickstand in the keyboard cover would be heresy.

    Maybe it's a smaller Surface Book, where tablet portion gets 6 hours of battery, while with the keyboard gets 15 hours total? I'd miss the kickstand but I'd be okay with that, especially if the tablet portion has at least one usb-c (for charging) and one usb-a port.

    Now I'm even more envious of @Bronsky's patience . At the 10.0" size, it's quite possible to hold it in one hand in portrait mode, the way you hold a phone. This was the main reason I went for the GB 10.6 after trying my friend's Galaxy tab A with s-pen (10.1). Imagine my disappointment at the bulkiness of the GB.

    Can someone actually run a comparison of the dimensions of the Surface Go and the GB 10.6 for my lazy a**? I'm now thinking of putting up the GB for sale, but it's got LTE and set me back $700 just a few months ago.

    I'll also entertain any reasons ( no matter how flimsy) to justify getting the S Go.

    Good one @Bronsky, and maybe back camera. Does it support Windows Hello?

    I don't see why it wouldn't have Hello support. If the SP has support for it why wouldn't this model?

    I was also dismayed by the thickness of the GB10.6......especially since the i5/Fan model is significantly thinner.
    But from the pictures....comparing USB-C to USB-C....to my eye in those leaked photos....it looks pretty equivalent in size wise. Its def gonna weight less though....and with the integrated keyboard and type cover....in transport....it should be thinner overall then the GB10.6 with its origami cover.
