So just saw a video about the surface go, now as someone who firmly hates Microsoft and especially windows, this has me almost tempted at that sort of price... What's your guys opinion on it?

    As a dev who uses a Surface 3 Pro; having to hit Function to use F-Keys sucks.

    @bkwilliams can't you change it in the BIOS

    Edit: hold fn and press caps lock, should toggle

    @lxmcf thanks FGTFM.
    Caps + Fn locks Fn, never would have found that on my own.

    It's kind of expensive for the hardware specs... My problem with the Surface lineup is that you pay for the beauty of it all... For example with this Surface Go, you can get it for 600$ with 8Gb of RAM and 128GB of storage, and Windows 10 Pro (if you get 10 Home in S mode you're in for a painful ride IMHO).

    Now think that you can get a decent Ryzen 5 laptop, like the Dell Inspiron 13 7000, for 700$ with soooo much better specs...

    @lxmcf they are and they're awesome... And many more manufacturers are getting on board. The SKUs are:
    Ryzen 3 2300U
    Ryzen 5 2500U
    Ryzen 7 2700U
    All of them quad core, 5 and 7 are multi threaded... But what makes them amazing is that all of them come with integrated Vega Cores (6, 8 and 10 respectively) for graphics. Which beat the living shit out of that god awful Intel HD crap.
