    I am looking to purchase a Microsoft Surface computer.

    I am looking at the Surface GO and the Surface 4 PRO.

    Here is a couple of choices I need help deciding on.

    Microsoft Surface GO - 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y (Renewed) - $399.00 - Amazon
    or
    Microsoft Surface PRO 4 - 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Intel Core i5-6300U (Renewed) - $472.00 - Amazon

    These do not include the Type-Cover which is $99.99

    I would use it for Microsoft 365 Office mainly for Outlook and Word. Nothing too much memory intensive.

    Which one would you go for?

    If you don't absolutely need the smaller size of the go, definitely get the pro. It feels much faster in office tasks compared to the go.

    I would go for the go, smaller device, warranty, and just an overall nicer package for someone who don't need power.

    I think I am going for the Surface GO 2 with 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD and the Core m3 cpu. Brand new from the Microsoft Store.
    I think it comes with a trial of Microsoft 365. I already purchased Microsoft 365 Personal last week. When I get the new Surface GO 2, do I have to do some steps to activate my present license on the GO 2?

    Just log into your microsoft account when you start a program if they are already loaded. Should be good to go. I am getting the go as well to replace my iPad.
