  • Sleek Design, but Poor PC.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by 0123r - November 8, 2021

    Pros: Sleek design, lightweight, pen works well with the screen, less palm/hand touch reaction (a major writing upgrade from previous Go 2). Cons: Click reaction delay is violent. If you touch/click on the screen more than once within a few seconds, the applications will glitch. I had 2 applications running (browser, Discord) and the device began to get extremely warm. Cannot handle small operations (slow processing time). The on-screen keyboard is extremely delayed. Overall, this tablet-sized PC operates worse than a cheap regular tablet. If you are using this as a tablet, you'll be satisfied. Anything more and it proves to be a major disappointment

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Love the idea. Better to spring for higher model.
    Reviewed by Ender - November 26, 2021

    Absolutely love it, but there are some pretty noticeable QoL problems. I wish I had gotten at least the 8GB RAM version and really wish I had just gotten the i3. This thing often takes a while to think (with just about EVERYTHING) which kinda sucks because I got a surface to help me manage my ADHD+autism while in school. It has still improved my workflow greatly; especially with the surface pen. But yeah, go for at least the next higher model.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • I love it
    Reviewed by Peter A - November 26, 2021

    I love how well it runs office while being super portable and light. Battery lasts around 4 hours which is longer than my main laptop. Screen is bright. Stereo speakers sound good enough. Pen is awesome but needs to be pressed down harder than I would like to start sensing it. It plays HD YouTube perfectly. Do not buy the 4GB Ram version of this. It's useless. I exchanged it for this 8GB Ram version and I am very happy.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
