    Yes and very underwhelming IMHO and they STILL are sticking a 64GB EMMC storage module in the low end.

    Oh well, at least the 10.5 inch display is an improvement.

    However, I haven't seen the corporate pricing for the low end go, but if they can get it in under $400 range fully kitted with the keyboard, they might grab some would have been iPad sales. Though I don't think user satisfaction will be as robust

    PS: new surface dock 2 and surface headphones 2 :D

    Yeah I'm pretty disappointed by the new Go. I tried to sound semi neutral in the new thread though. http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/surface-go-2-discussion-thread-may-2020.75452/

    And there is a 256GB SSD 8GB RAM LTE model listed for business at $879 though it's showing as TBD on ship dates (which might get updated as soon as later today)

    Speaking strictly for our corporate customers though, it poses an interesting choice for them versus the I3 based Surface Pro 7. Obviously there is a dearth of test results currently, but the 4GB RAM i3 Surface Pro 7 pretty handily beat the 8GB RAM Surface Go.

    I guess TBD, it looks like a test sample is on its way to us, but no ETA yet.

    Yeah that seems like the SKU to get. Still, not sure they hit the right price point for these to be successful.

    I've added a list of specs in the new thread.

    One last snipe and I'll go on to my endless skype calls today. It seems to me that MS has now fully embraced the Apple ethic of introducing a basic design once in a blue moon and then iterating it to death. That's especially true when I look at the updates to the Surface Book 3
