Chrome is a memory hog. Use edge and you will be fine.
Unfortunately, soon Edge will be replaced by Chrome...

I disagree. Windows 10 does a pretty amazing job working with not a lot of RAM. I still use a Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet running full Windows 10 with an Atom processor and 2GB of RAM. You're not going to use a Surface Go for heavy computing tasks anyway. 4GB is probably plenty for what these machines get used for.

Does not come with type cover and is 64gb instead of the 128gb model. Instead of using an SSD it uses eMCC storage which is slower.

Definitely NOT the lowest price ever. This thing was $399 for months.

Months? The deal you posted ran from the 1st of March to about the 20th of March this year. Was it on sale at this price before that?

Yes, I bought one at the end of January and returned it in early February. When I first saw it posted here, I laughed that it took two months for someone to post it the first time.

Edge will be rebuilt with a "Chromium" based engine. Not replaced with Google's Chrome browser.

Yes, not sure how well the surface go will hold up then. I found that i could surf with multiple heavy tabs open in Edge without much stuttering in performance, but when i tried to do the same with Chrome (4Gb RAM model) things got very laggy. Switching between tabs (especially sites like cnet .com) took a noticeable amount of time for the page to display cleanly, and scrolling got janky. Unfortunately, since i and others at home prefer to stay with Chrome, and we often have 2 users browsers open with a few tab, this was too slow to use as a shared home device and i returned it. I agree with most of the feedback from others. if you are a single user and mostly use it for light work, it is great. It is awesome as a travel device. But if you're going to be using it mostly at home, or sharing with multiple users, then it's just slow enough to be frustrating.

I get that. And Edge is totally fine. It's purely personal preference for me where I need chrome as my primary browser. So this just didn't work for me, but it's a totally fine device for others. If you need to be mobile most of the time I'd still recommend the surface go at this price point.

I agree. I like Edge much better than Google Chrome. But since Microsoft is building it, specifically for it's OS we wont know how well it will perform till they have it finished. But I can only imagine that it will work as well as existing Edge, or at a minimum much better than Chrome on Windows

no, microsoft is basing it off chromium which is what chrome uses. it'll be much the same but different UI tweaks and such so very similar to chrome. Edge was horrible for web standards and this should help bring things in line. been using the preview for awhile https://www.microsoftedgeinsider....CID=MO12FP

Yeah that's what I'm afraid of. In any case I suspect that going forward both will be just laggy enough that the surface Go just isn't for me. I still maintain that if you're primarily on the go, then the surface go is better, but if you're at home most of the time and/or sharing with family users then it's slow enough to be frustrating. Get a laptop at that price point, or bump up to a surface pro.

A word of caution: If you do switch Windows 10 in S mode to just Windows 10 Home the process is one way. There is no easy way to roll back or undo the change. You can reinstall a factory image of the OS from Microsoft, but that requires a USB drive, some patience, and a few more steps (plus you lose all your data).

Additionally, if you switch from Windows 10 Home in S mode to just Windows 10 Home (FREE in Updates "Go to Store to switch to Windows 10 Home") you can buy a Windows 10 Pro license through the Microsoft Store and upgrade to Pro after for $99.

S mode is not that bad in fact in many ways its better
What exactly is better about S mode?

It's more secure by default and will stay lighter weight over its life without needing extra maintenance down the road. The one main knock against it was no Chrome, that vanishes now with chromium edge

Windows S is basically a preview of the new future Modern OS (WCOS): Windows Ultra coming in the Fall by then they will have "secured" x86 figured out too. This is what eventually will replace Windows 10 for users and Windows 10 will become a Workstation OS

Most can live fine in S mode and malware basically has no shot at infecting an S system at all and this makes sense for most of the users
