    You know if this board had such a thing, I think the Surface Go would be up for product of the year, for the best mix of design, performance and price.

    Runners up/honorable mentions would be the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 and HP Spectre Folio

    Quick question, anyone knows if it's possible to use the nibs from the second generation surface pen (SB1) on the latest generation. The one I got on ebay didn't come with replacement nibs. I kinda like the finer point nibs.

    Thanks, any impact on the performance? The 2nd generation surface pen was a big letdown.

    I can't see any on the Surface Book 2 beside tilt working obviously better with the original nib and the 2H conical nib

    Dang it. I missed this. And this is why we need a “Where is Dale?” sticky.

    Let us know how you like HP. When do you get it? Will the SGO still be in the stable of machines as a travel computer?

    The Spectre Folio should be here Friday according to FedEx. The SGO has gone back to Microsoft - I really want this to be a single device experiment. It is large compared to the SGO, but I knew if I kept it around I'd drift off into two devices, besides the fact it was just too slow for some of my custom software.

    Heard Surface GO LTE is a neat device but mediocre battery life.

    Should we wait? Is it likely there will be faster/better battery life anytime soon?

    I asked the oracle Bing but her response was inconclusive
