    It's here! Well, almost, release date October 5. Anybody getting one of these?

    Microsoft Store link

    What's new:
    - Pentium Gold 6500Y on low end model
    - Core i3-10100Y on higher end model
    - Windows 11

    Still a 4GB model available, still 64 eMMC available. Still has a uSD slot, nice.

    Sitting this refresh out. My Go2 works too well. Now, if they had included a replaceable drive and the new pen hardware, I would have probably taken the plunge.

    Same here. Needed the SPX KB with slim pen charging dock. That's the least they could have done for the SGo3.

    I'm not sure Microsoft could have been any lazier with this, so no.

    I have one that will get ordered tomorrow through work. Looking at it as a proof of concept to replace our material floor systems and mobile carts. I'll play around with it before sending it to the floor. :)
    Excited for the i3 cpu and the slim pen 2. I am hoping the new pen is finally a decent system to write with.

    As I am sitting on the coach with the Surface 3 that I just pulled from the graveyard (my drawer) to put W11 on it.

    I've felt the Slim Pen 1 was kind of almost there. That being said, as much as I have high hopes for the Slim Pen 2, since the GO 3 was the only device Microsoft didn't pimp out for the Slim Pen 2, can't say I would have too much optimism that it would be as good an experience on the Go 3 as it would the Pro 8 or Laptop Studio. Given the disaster that was the pen performance on the Go1, I feel it could go either way.

    Will wait too. Maybe if the pentium model with ssd will have price cuts I will recommend it to others or maybe if the i3 model has improved battery life compared to the m3.
