Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 12.4" - Intel Core i5 8GB-RAM 128GB-SSD - Platinum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have a surface for my work computer and do not really enjoy it. I think the unit works great and is pretty reliable, but if you are working without it being docked for a desktop, the keypad is tough to work with. It’s very small and the mouse doesn’t always work. It gets jammed and sometimes won’t click so you try your luck at tapping. The touch screen is nice, but doesn’t work well for my applications.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this for I bought this for my husband for Christmas, we have yet to experience any problems but I only give it 4 stars due to user friendliness. It hasn’t been horrible in any way, but also hasn’t been the easiest to figure out either. If you are looking for something user friendly and don’t have the patience I would recommend finding something a little more simple. [product:microsoft-surface-laptop-go-i5/8/128]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this device I purchased this device because I was in need of a good powerful laptop. I’m used to having a “regular” laptop for my everyday use but I needed something better. I had never considered an expensive flagship laptop before but this device was a great investment and I enjoy using it. It’s really smooth and powerful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this computer! I love this computer! It’s small and compact but does everything I need. The touchscreen is a bonus! Originally I had the silver color and ended up with the black[product:microsoft-surface-laptop-3-15in-r5/16/256] later on. The black has a much better keyboard and doesn’t get as dirty

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I’m not to found of HP laptops. They aren’t as smart lol as Apple. Argue with me all you want but I’m a editor and Apple is better for me. BUT I will say this, HP is better if your career is in office. When I was practicing my paralegal degree HP was more helpful with the typing papers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love it! If you use Adobe wait for the nxt gen but it still works extremely well! It is my baby and I even named it! I love the touch bar! It’s great and the fingerprint scan keeps prying eyes off your machine! Plus it’s lightweight and sleek! Even came with Stickers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There wasn’t an option There wasn’t an option to choose black, but mine is black. I use it for work and it’s the best, it’s gotten me through the entire pandemic and I honestly think it’s worth the price. It’s been very reliable for me the last almost 2 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved using my work computer so much that I opted to buy the same one for my personal use. I love how lightweight it is, the color options and memory selection was great to choose from to cater to my needs. Highly recommend!
