    , I can imagine the Pro indeed being more interesting for most employees. Though am the only one the finds the 4gb version of the Go the most interesting for a secondary device / tablet? That version seems to be more balanced (spec wise) to me too.

    What I think Microsoft should do....open up all Windows devices to be fully used as USB monitors......ala Apples Sidecar function. Windows 10 already has this function but it only works via wireless....and from my attempts it’s somewhat of a disaster. Performance is slow and laggy....and even connecting the devices can be such a hassle. Just make it so that you can USB-C to USB-C the Surface Go to the Surface Pro 7.....and that could give the Surface Go a new lease on life.

    right now in my coding bootcamp....the class is majority windows, but there are 6 mac users in the class....I’m the only Windows user using a second monitor (the Asus Zen Touch)....But of the 6 Mac users....3 have an iPad alongside purely for sidecar purposes.

    Windows 10 works great with an iPad Pro 11 and Duet Display connected USBC to USBC

    Want to invite everyone to an off topic thread - Cord Cutting 101 - to see if we can kick around ideas and tips to get out of the clutches of Comcast, Direct, Dish, etc.

    :p To be fair, the unhappy ones were the people that had older laptops previously mostly thinkpads with 13 in displays. The people that had desktops or catually wanted it for tablet use were thrilled.

    And that's the problem....for us on the Windows camp....Microsoft should offer a more suitable Windows alternative to that.

    , yeah it is strange that current option does not work wired. Here it is super laggy too (wifi is ok but not good) so now I use mouse without borders but I miss the extend view option with that.

    Is there actually something like Duet Display (usb c instead of wireless) but for Windows to Windows?
