    Pardon my ignorance, but @inmnbob, what exactly were you trying to install?

    Congrats on the purchase btw.

    Just the software and windows updates. Then the USB-C failed to provide power. Still worked for a drive but not for charging.

    This is the case from Target. Surface Go and cover fit.

    @dstrauss :

    "All of this glee with the SG has made me double down on my GB12 full time - and it is so much more convenient than the SB2. The inking in OneNote 16 and Adobe Acrobat DC has been great I'm liking it more each time I open it up. Can't wait to see what the successor can dowhile pondering the SG LTE route"

    Hmm, I wonder: Take a Note series phone, paired it with either a GB10 or 12. Both uses Wacom EMR. Hmm. I'm liking this idea. Very much liking this idea.

    I love the size, feel, and performance of this awesome device, but with the horrible inking\writing on this, I want to frisbee this across the room. I just went through a reset\refresh of the unit, installed o365 same issue, uninstalled and installed office 2016, same issue. I tried the SP4 pen and it is a little better, but far from even the Surface 3 inking. The new Surface Stylus is horrible. As Bronsky noted, it reminds me of the HP Slate 500. And the inking never got better with that device.

    At the end of the week this is going back to Microsoft. Disappointed...
    I'll go back to the S3 as my note taking\companion device....

    Try Wacom's Bamboo Ink which is N-Trig/Microsoft Pen Protocol compatible in store at your local Best Buy. Switching to MPP mode is as simple as pressing and holding both side buttons for two seconds. Even without tilt, I prefer the pressure curve and initial activation force. This is a major reason why I sold off my Surface Pro 4 pens and I got this Wacom one instead. As always, this is all just my humble opinion and your mileage may vary.

    Out of curiosity, did you get a chance to try the Go with the Bamboo Ink? I should have grabbed one from the floor or brought mine, but was kind of pressed for time. I am curious to see if the inking experience improves at all with it.

    Yes, the Bamboo Ink is night and day vs. either Surface Pen. Only negligible amount of fish hooks on vertical strokes vs. nearly 100%.
