Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Go 2, m3-8100Y

85.4% Microsoft Surface Go 2 Review: Compact Convertible gets a bigger screen | Notebookcheck
Microsoft equips its compact convertible with a slightly larger screen and more pixels, but keeps the regular x86 processor compared to the Surface Pro X. But is the Surface Go 2 still competitive, and does the new screen affect the battery runtime?
80% Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: Is this hybrid 2-in-1 worth buying?
Source: T3 English EN→zh-CN
The Surface Go 2 is something very specific, which other hybrids can’t compare with: a tablet that can double up as a Windows laptop. Beyond that, it has a first-class web cam, fantastic picture quality, decent audio and excellent battery life. And it looks wonderfully sleek and elegant to boot. To get all that for £499 is good value indeed. That said, if you're going to do more than the most basic laptop tasks, we'd recommend paying for extra storage and processing power. And that means the cost starts to go up. In short, if you want a powerful computer and aren’t bothered about separating into a tablet, you’d be better off buying a conventional Windows laptop. But if you’re set on a tablet-laptop hybrid, and want to do 'grown-up' computing rather than mess around in Android or iOS, the Surface Go 2 is our top recommendation.

90% Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: Small but mighty
Source: Android Authority English EN→zh-CN
The Surface Go 2 is a fantastic little Windows tablet for entertainment and light workloads. The range offers a very affordable entry point into Microsoft’s Surface line-up and is one of the best value devices on the market right now. However, the costs quickly add up once you add the keyboard cover and Office software — and those who want to do more than surf the web will want to spring for the Core m3 model too. So the real cost of ownership probably starts at closer to the $700 mark. Fortunately, Microsoft offers an Essentials Bundle that works out a little cheaper than buying everything individually.

Microsoft Surface Go 2 Review: Why?
Source: Tech2.in.com English EN→zh-CN
The 2020 iPad (Review), the cheap one, the one that costs Rs 28,000, which also happens to run on a 3-generations-old Apple SoC, offers a browser that’s five times as fast as the one on the fully specced-out Go 2, supports most Microsoft apps, is easily two to three times more powerful, has a tonne of apps, supports modern 3D games, has a better display, is slimmer and lighter, doesn’t get as hot, lasts twice as long, edits 4K videos… I could go on for ages. And I haven’t even mentioned how much more sensible and usable iPadOS is when compared to Windows 10 in tablet mode or that the stylus is very intuitive to use.

80% Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: A capable 2-in-1 PC, but at a price
Source: The Indian Express English EN→zh-CN
The Surface Go 2 is fast (at least the model I tested), portable, and the speakers are loud. For me, the Surface Go 2 shines because of its form factor and solid performance. I see the Surface Go 2 as the perfect device for someone like a blogger or author. While the Go 2 ships with a “real” desktop operating system — Windows 10, it is hard for me not to look at the new iPad Air. Not only is it priced on a lower side but the iPad Air is a better tablet any day. That said, the Surface Go 2 still fascinates me, despite being priced on a bit higher side in India.

100% Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: Same size, bigger ambition
Source: It Pro English EN→zh-CN
Even if it’s no powerhouse, the Surface Go 2 sets a new standard for cheap Windows 2-in-1s. By tweaking and improving the already-accomplished Surface Go, without unduly jacking up the price, it’s even more successful at replicating the qualities of recent Surface Pro devices - even outdoing the current-gen Surface Pro 7 on battery life.

All that said, my perennial frustration with the Surface Go 2 arrived entirely because I’d start to mistake it for an everyday notebook. Then, though, you run into the constraints of its processor and the shortcomings of its keyboard. The knowledge of just how much you’d have to pay for that experience was never far behind.

Surface Go 2 Honest Review - Why I almost threw it out..

Microsoft's Surface Go 2 is a great budget tablet with a few really impressive features and specs for a low price of $400. However, there are a couple of huge issues that stop us from recommending it to our viewers.. I explain why in this review.

With long battery life, thin bezels and decent performance, the Microsoft Surface Go 2 addresses the shortcomings of its predecessor, but don’t expect a miracle from this $399 tablet.

75% Microsoft Surface Go 2 Review: Don’T Push It
Source: The Verge English EN→zh-CN
When Microsoft first announced the Surface Go back in 2018, it talked a lot about how transformative it could be to have a full Windows experience on such a small, portable device. As an avowed lover of tiny computers, I buy into that claim more than most. But even I have to ask myself if the trade-offs are worth it.

70% Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: A gorgeous, pricey tablet with a decent CPU
Source: PC World English EN→zh-CN
The Surface Go 2 debuts at an uncertain time. When everyone is sheltering in place, an ultramobile tablet for travelers isn’t especially valuable. On the other hand, students attending classes online could use a relatively low-cost Surface that’s optimized for videoconferencing as well as everyday web and office work.

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: The awkward teenager

The Surface Go 2 is a device I want to love. In many ways, it’s the 2-in-1 I’ve always wanted. If it ran the right software, had a more comfortable keyboard and thinner bezels, and delivered better battery life, I might consider trading in both a tablet and a laptop to live the single device life.

Surface Go from Microsoft comes back for round 2, starting at $399`

Plus, if we get lucky and our long stay in quarantine-land starts to come to an end, the first thing people will want to do is take their PCs and go work in the park, in coffee shops, on planes and anywhere but at home. The new Surface Go 2 looks like a potentially good way to do that, which I will confirm once I get a chance to fully test the hardware.
