    How do you compare the inking of this with the SP(2017)? And with the Wacom Bamboo Ink?

    Inking on the Surface Pro 2017 is far better. I certainly don't see those fish hooks on every downward stroke.

    But it's funny that you mention the Wacom Bamboo Smart Stylus... It eliminates 90% of the fish hooks, so it's definitely the way to "Go." And it saves you $20 in the process. Unfortunately, there's no way to attach it to the side of the device.

    I didn't get them at all during my in-store tests using oneNote with my pro 4 gen pen.

    They're less evident with the older pen.

    A couple minutes in I already see my single gripe with Lisa's reviews. She puts up a photo slideshow with pictures that don't fill the screen. In a way that's fair because most people don't take 3:2 pictures, but it doesn't show off the nice Surface aspect ratio well.

    I do like that she calls Pentium a "dirty word". :D

    I agree the Surface 4 pen is better. I just purchased one on eBay as backup since they aren’t manufacturing them any longer and the Surface OneNote experience the way I write is much better

    Installed the new surface go without issue. Got a message that the USCI USB CONNECTION MANAGER cannot start. Status Device Power Failure. I can connect a phone to it and it see the phone but won’t charge on USB as my previous Go did. Thoughts? Is this a hardware failure or driver ?

    Well got it to finally reinstall the driver and get it to work. Hate having system and driver problems with a device on day one. So far this whole process has taken a lot more time than it should. Finally all is good for now.
