    Ironic. As you are flying the coop, I am even more committed to the Go. I just finished arguing a fairly complicated motion to dismiss where there was literally no paper generated at any point from the briefing of the motion to oral argument. Everything was filed electronically. I even used the Go in Court to argue the motion. I used the tablet in portrait mode. I needed only 4 tabs open for the specific document and case references I wanted to note during argument and a OneNote page for reading argument notes and making notes during the proceeding. It was liberating. The Go was literally perfect for the task. I kept it with its keyboard on backwards and it was really solid to grip. The highlighted text was quite clear and really stood out.

    It is a shame that I'm of such an advanced age in my profession, since this old dog is learning new tricks.:thumbsup:

    I didn't call anyone; the email was automatically generated and arrived within moments . It started like this:
    "We apologize for the difficulties you may have experienced, when attempting to register a device or app to your Amazon account.
    For security reasons, we may require a two-step authentication process when registering certain devices and software applications."
    I got the app originally on W8 computer.

    Screenshots are invoked by pressing the power button and volume up at the same time.

    OneNote works just as good on iOS on the Go (I was using the UWP). One thing that is definitely better is that when you add line space, it is really quick.

    Thanks for the redirect.

    Moderators take note, maybe we should have a sticky "Dale's Current Tablet/Forum". It would let other less active and new forum members find out where Dale is hanging out and what tablet he's using.

    :)

    Thanks.

    I am always sensitive to how hard it is to read tone into a message.

    I want Dale (and others) to know it was said in jest. I really appreciate hearing his travels, because by living vicariously through his travels, I can think about alternatives and better appreciate what I have. Dale's experiences are on par with Lisa and Daniel. His reviews might not be as in depth, but it is more educational to hear about the use case.

    One thing I'd like to see Dale write up is a HOWTO to rapidly spin up a new machine. Unfortunately, Windows Backup isn't as robust as TimeMachine. So there is still a lot of manual configuration to get all of the new programs loaded and configured. It'd be interesting to hear if Dale uses some utility to rapidly transfer settings?

    Even with a NAS and OneDrive, I still don't like the productivity hit to spin up a new machine.

    Well based on my experience with my new go with LTE, battery life is now the Achilles heel with this thing.
    For comparison with my personal go I was able to get about 6-8 hours of use per charge (which usually includes a lot of tethering to my iPhone) which was enough given my typical day.
    Using the go with LTE with I was barely able to get 4 hours before the battery gave up the ghost. Based on what a couple of people that have Surface Pro 2017 with LTE have observed t a similar drop in battery life compared to without LTE.

    So I hope that the rumors/speculation that a WOS surface possibly with this chip is true.

    Especially since by comparison I got two whole days of use with the Samsung Galaxy Book two with LTE and still had about 25% battery left
