I haven't seen the Surface Go yet, but the detachable keyboard of my Surface 3 (which probably has a very similar keyboard as the Surface Go) can be used in an upper position and a lower position. It feels much more solid in the lower position, where the keyboard lies flat on the desk. I hate the upper position.ly narrow in portrait mode.
I tried the lower position in the showroom but the keyboard is too light so it won't stay "sticked" with the desk but went up ~5mm on the back side all the time.

My Surface 3's keyboard drops all the way down. A while ago I looked up the weight of the Surface Go keyboard and I vaguely recall that it was actually a little heavier than the Surface 3's. Perhaps in that showroom the keyboard had been stuck in the upper position for too long, so the "hinge" couldn't unbend completely when you tried to lay the keyboard flat on the table.

Unfortunately the detachable keyboard is terrrible.
But that's exactly the point ! Since it's detachable, you don't have to put up with this disgrace of a keyboard :idea:

CES 2019 | The Huawei MateBook 13 is coming to the United States for $999 USD
https://www.notebookcheck.net/The-Huawe ... 591.0.html

Huawei will be sticking to the 3:2 display aspect ratio for productivity reasons similar to the Microsoft Surface series. Glossy touchscreen will come standard across all SKUs in the United States while SKUs in Asia will have non-touchscreen options.

The pop-up webcam of the MateBook X Pro received criticism from day one and so we're glad to see it back to its rightful place atop the screen. :thumbs-UP:

Four navigation keys are clustered (via Fn), still better than current Lenovo stupid 6-row layout that splits them into opposite sides of the keyboard :roll: Unfortunately $1000 means at least 1400 Euro over here :( Time to use those US delivery services to workaround the EU crap.
