    Are there any hints and tips or limitations for setting up the GO 2 in a desk environment?

    - Wired Keyboard and Mouse?

    - Dual Displays?

    - USB/Multi-port hubs?

    -Does the GO 2 play well with mainstream non Microsoft accessories?

    - any other considerations?

    If you're looking to use the Go 2 in a desk environment then the first thing you need to decide is which processor will best suit your needs. The M3 variation has significantly more horsepower than the Pentium 4425Y model. And if you're looking to dual display, you'll likely prefer the M3 model. There's only one USB-C port so you'll need a dock of some sort, preferably something that will allow you to use dual displays, power delivery, and provide additional USB ports.

    I don't use dual displays on my Go 2 (M3 model) but I do have it hooked up to a 32-inch 1440p monitor. I'm using a pretty basic USB-C hub from a company called Utechsmart. The hub provides additional USB ports, power delivery, and HDMI output. I have a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard but could also go wired if I needed.

    It handles everything I need which mostly consists of TeamViewer, Chrome/Edge/Firefox, Office, VMWare, Affinity Photo, and some other oddball software I use for work.

    Aside from the physical hardware, the software is just regular ol' Windows. Anything that works on a traditional desktop will work here.
