    Nah, just splurged on a fully decked out SB2 15", not gonna take this SG2 bait. Besides, I'm still holding out hope for Neo next year to replace my original SG. Maybe if I wait this one out, the tech gods will smile at me just as they did to @Bronsky .
    Oh man! Patience is a difficult virtue to have.

    Great looking setup Chris - wish I could do that but use mine in drawing mode (or is that "posture") most of the day.

    It really helps keeps your desk neat. I use my Go2 on the left where it seems more natural as an extended display and landscape. I also like keeping it on the desk so I can just press it down to jot a note or sign a document.

    Nice. That company also offers horizontal mounts. I like the idea of the Surface on a fully articulated arm so I could put it in portrait next to my monitor or pull it close for touch input or pull it down and tilt it back for writing. But sadly my crappy old Dell Latitude from work is the center of my computing life for the time being. If/when I upgrade my Pro 5 I may go through the bother of setting up for dual work/home usage (we use G Suite :):)mad:) and Office for work so I think I can get by without IT intervention).
    @Bronsky and I are certainly starting to seeing those colors right about now, but I imagine they're a rarer sight in Texas.
    p.s. To be clear Dale, that is NOT my workstation but a photo from the site. Mine is too much of a disaster to post publicly. :eek:

    I have the 8 gig 256 LTE version and using the Brydge keyboard all the time and no I actually get really good battery life in my opinion. As an example I had to go out of town yesterday all day and also had company last weekend so I left my GO2 on Friday fully charged upstairs on the desk and have not yet gotten back to it until this morning. After three full days off plug and just in sleep mode I opened it up to 98% battery so that was in my mind pretty strong.
