Microsoft launches cheaper, smaller, Surface Go
At 1.15 pounds and 8.3 mm width, the Surface Go is Microsoft’s smallest and lightest Surface yet.

Microsoft has updated the Surface range, launching the more affordable and smaller Surface Go.

Similar in appearance to the original Surface, the Go features a 10-inch screen, integrated kickstand and runs Windows 10. At 1.15 pounds and 8.3 mm width, the Surface Go is Microsoft’s smallest and lightest Surface yet. It starts at $399 MSRP, representing a new entry point for the Surface family.

It has a 10” high-resolution PixelSense Display that supports Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity for accurate note taking, drawing and computer-aided design. The 3:2 display delivers video content in high contrast and comes calibrated from the factory to ease the strain on the eyes.

The Surface Go is powered by the 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y, in a fanless design, which Microsoft says offers up to nine hours of battery life.

For connectivity, Surface Go features several ports including Surface Connect for charging and docking; USB-C 3.1 for data, video, and charging; a headphone jack; and a MicroSD card reader for storage expansion.
