Demnächst in diesem Theater :: Surface Go

Die ganzen Surface-Go-Tests sind mir zu wischiwaschi. Ich will wissen, ob ich damit immer und ohne Einschränkung arbeiten könnte. Nicht irgendein abstrakter Nutzer mit einem vorgestellten Profil, sondern ich selbst. Für einen Selbstversuch wird Microsoft mir ein Go leihen, sehr bald. Und dann schaun wir mal. Ich braucht etwa einen Tag, um alle Workflows von meinem Surface Pro rüberzuziehen, aber dann sollte ich relativ schnell produktiv sein. Die spannende Frage ist nicht der Bildschirm, da ich alles sowieso im Tablet Mode fahre. Das heißt keine überlappenden Fenster, keine Fensterrahmen. Spannend wird vor allem die sehr kleine Tastatur. Das wird vermutlich der Knackpunkt sein. Um Prozessor und Speicher mache ich mir weniger Gedanken.

Das wird ein Test aus reiner Neugier. Gewinnen kann ich mit einem Go nicht gegen ein Pro i7/16/512. Aber vielleicht ist weniger doch mehr.

I tried the keyboard and was ok with it. But for pen input, drawing, the size of the drawing surface was too small for me. Hard to see the “bigger picture”.
But the form factor was great for travel, so I am still torn.

Have you considered to try the Galaxy Book 2 as well?

Not sure they will sell it here. But I will have to try one of these Windows on ARM PCs. If not from Samsung, then from Lenovo. The current crop with SD 835 did not cut it. Maybe the SD 850 platform is better. So far it seems to crack when you try to run standard Windows apps that are not compiled for ARM. Emulation has always sucked, whether it was Windows on OS/2 or Android on BlackBerry. Even iOS on macOS isn't right, and Android on Chrome neither.

How will you move your workflows to the Go? Do you use any tools to move from one PC to another, or is it just a clean installation and then install from scratch any extra apps? My impression to date is that it's much easier to move between 2 Macs than between 2 PCs - right?

John Keys, 2018-10-19

Yes, that is the case. I am going to install the apps I need and data comes in through OneDrive.

As i‘m actually running a surface 3 (not pro), i am looking forward to your real life tests.

Consider using Chocolatey for installing your programs on the surface if you install software that does not come out of the windows store.

Thanks for the tip, Patric - looks interesting.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
