    Slightly smaller screen bezels, faster CPU/RAM/SSD and a second USB-C or regular USB slot instead of the useless surface connector.
    That works make the next GO my dream device.

    The surface connector is great, I love it and most reviews I've read about it are positive because the magnetic charging port saves your device from flying off the table on those occasions you trip on the cable (and trust me most of us have had such moments).

    From the specifications above, it seems you're looking for a whole new SGo, and not just an update. So, why not just ask for an SPX mini?

    I’d take one of those (SPX Mini) if it had an Intel processor

    I like the surface connector too, almost as clever as Apple's mag safe. I just wish (and I think it's possible) that they would find a way to add thunderbolt support. Unfortunately I think they are going to be like Apple and the next gen will only have USBC/TB type ports.

    To go from :vbtongue: to :thumbsup: on Thunderbolt 3 seems a bit fast for the Surface team. Maybe it will happen, and USB-C will become the standard for a while from phones to desktops (with a mixture of TB3 and TB4 in between).

    Since I'm already invested in a Dock that operates off the Surface Connector, I'm fine with them emulating it in a Surface Go refit.

    On the other hand, the other day I bought a compact USB-C dock with Power Delivery, 4K HDMI, couple of USB3, USB-C data, for $20. It hasn't set my apartment on fire yet. Admittedly no multi-monitor, but if you don't need that, the Surface dock isn't that much of a reason to hang on to a proprietary connector.

    Unless you are corporate America and can't stand an under five year useful life for peripherals...that's what MS always uses as its excuse for not changing/adopting new technology (aka Thunderbolt 3)...

    I'd take one if it had a Qualcomm processor, Galaxy Book2 battery life, and Go pricing. Am I asking for too much here? :D
