    I have a ThinkPad x1c gen 6 for work but I am an IT Director and find myself checking on things on small trips and around the house. The idea of the surface go seemed to fit the bill but after using it I am not so sure. I had my virus protection on and found browsing multiple websites slow and when pruning thru my photo collection there were several times the surface froze and I had to wait. I even removed my AV and that helped but still I can only do one task at a time or it gets un useable. This is the 8gb 128gb ssd version.

    I was looking at the deals on the pro and I can get the i5 8gb 128gb ssd version for $800 with keyboard. I just do not know if I should live with the shortcomings of the go?

    Or get the pro for $250 more?

    Or return and wait for 2019 to see if we get some faster tablets?

    , if you liked to use the Go in your hands / as a tablet, than I would recommend you to wait for 2019 10 inch windows tablet with better performance or the Go 2 (probably mid-end 2019 or begin 2020 I guess).

    If you just want a compact & light Windows pc, a Surface Pro or Lenovo Miix or Acer Switch or such would be a good choice. If weight is less of an issue, you may also try a 11-13 inch Windows ultrabook or convertible with thin bezels.
    Another idea is to get something 2nd-handed, like the HP or Dell business variants of the Surface Pro line.

    Sounds like you may be better served with a Surface Pro.

    Go for the Pro model. Out of interest, do you use Chrome on your Surface? I use Chrome on my Surface Pro and sometimes Chrome can be a memory hog and cause everything to slow down.
