    At minimum, I would have preferred the top of the Tremont line, the Pentium N6005. Intel Pentium Silver N6005 Processor 4M Cache up to 3.30 GHz Product Specifications Clocks are higher. But, a current generation ICore would have been the best choice.

    Hopefully, HP will offer with something close to the Tremont's design parameter of 16GB RAM.

    , I like that. I think its also interesting from a longetivity perspective; if on one side the pogo pins are damaged (which I one time had with Dell Venue) you still have a backup.

    It's a shame that the mere 4GB kind of kills that longevity. Otherwise I think I like it better that the Go. On paper at least.

    Perhaps they'll at least offer an 8gb/256gb option - but the open question is whether this processor can keep up with the i3 in the Surface Go 3 -

    That hurt to even write that - WHERE THE H*** IS THE FANLESS 11th GEN i5?

    On paper, it looks like the Tremont should keep up with the M3. The I3 turbos up to 3.9ghz so I don't think that the 3.3ghz of the Tremont will keep up.

    My Go2 is as capable as the New Surface Pro 8 when it comes to video conferencing. Both have 5mpx front facing cameras and dual mics.
