    Folks,

    It's new, it's exciting, so who has pre ordered one? If I had not bought an almost 2000 dollar gaming/VR laptop, I would be seriously getting one of these!

    So who bit the bullet?
    I'm on the same boat. If I hadn't just bought a VR laptop and VR headset, I would seriously consider this even if my SP2 is still working.

    I just can't justify using an LTE tablet that costs more and adds $10-15 month to my monthly cellphone bill.

    That's just me.

    I was going to, but the 128GB i5 Pro with type cover deal got my dollars instead. I may still get one for the wife, though. Her upstairs and patio device (Surface 2) is getting a little long in the tooth...

    Inking isn't good on any of them. You have to force yourself to use it. There is a reason it isn't a popular feature.
    What?

    Pre-ordered the 128GB model. Going to use it as a secondary device for note taking. I have a Surface Book now for note taking. I just really want something lighter and I can justify the Go as a secondary device. I can't do that with a Surface Pro. It overlaps too close to the Surface Book.

    I grabbed that SP deal for my mother-in-law. It was a long drive to nearest Best Buy that had it in stock but totally worth it. That was the perfect configuration for her and a hell of a deal.

    I preordered the 8 / 128 along with a Platinum Type Cover. It will be my personal machine as I have a 2017 SP provided by my work, but it’s strictly a work machine. I’m so excited!!!!

    Any ideas of when they will actually ship? Meaning will they be shipped a few days early and we will actually receive them on Aug 2nd, or will they be shipped out in the 2nd and we receive them a few days later?

    I recently checked my account page for an update on my preorder, as I’ve ordered the same combo as you have (8/128/Platinum Type Cover), and the page now shows both preorders as ‘releases on 8/1/2018.’ Whether I will receive them on Wednesday the 1st, or they will be shipped out on that day remains to be seen.

    I got a notification that my type cover has shipped, waiting in my Surface shipping confirmation now. I am a moron and ordered them separately on accident.

    I need the business version with Win Pro so I didn't preorder. I will go to my nearest Microsoft store tomorrow and find out whether it's less expensive to get the business model or upgrade to Win Pro on the regular model, see what my education discount might apply to, and bring home my choice.

    Surface Dock, ordered from Amazon, came in today. I need the extra ports at times. I can keep the dock on my desk for charging and keep the charger in the sleeve.

    Looking forward to reading everyone's first impressions!

    I love it so far, but I haven't really done much with it other than install apps and watch a few YouTube videos.

    When I was going through the initial Windows 10 setup I thought there was something wrong with the screen because the brightness was fluctuating a lot, but it was because it was set to automatically adjust to the room brightness.

    My biggest concern is the battery life. I have a Surface Pro 3 that seems to only get 3 or 4 hours per charge (if I'm lucky), so as long as the Surface Go does better (hopefully 6 or 7 at least) I'll be happy. The battery estimate shown in the taskbar is pretty much as inaccurate and useless as it is on my Pro 3 though.

    I like the keyboard a lot. I just got the less expensive black version. I will get a pen eventually too.

    The screen size might take some getting used to, but the bezels don't seem quite as thick in person as they do in videos.

    I plan to try running Photoshop on it soon. Haven't taken it out of S Mode yet.
