    The Microsoft Surface Go is a great tablet/laptop and does what it is designed to do extremely well. The Surface Go is compact, light and easy to carry around with you every day. Throw it in your bag and you have a tablet with the functionality of a desktop PC on the go (hence the name). Read more

    I bought this around a month ago to have some flexibility while studying online. I have a desktop but found when I was away from home I only had my phone, the surface go is perfect for streaming, online shopping and viewing lectures. Read more

    OK so this is the "toy" version but for most general uses it is perfectly capable. Bought the keyboard too which feels warm and takes the cool-to-touch metal feel away a bit.
