Microsoft Surface Go Tablet All Information
Microsoft has released a new weapon to fight Apple: the Surface Go, which will make direct competition to the iPad in the market.
It is an affordable Microsoft tablet retaining the characteristic design of the Surface Pro. It has a 10-inch touchscreen in 3: 2 format compatible with Surface Pen and weighs around 500 grams – the lightest Surface yet.
Like the previous models can be used as a laptop. It comes with the retractable foot integrated to support it in different angles and can be hooked and unhooked to the keyboard, which also serves as a cover to protect the screen. This time Microsoft has added the USB type C 3.1.
The user can choose between Windows 10 S or upgrade to Windows 10. It offers the typical functions of a Windows laptop, including the split screen and compatibility with Office 365 and Microsoft applications. The battery lasts up to 9 hours.
Yes, it is less powerful than the Surface Pro with an Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor, so the performance could be somewhat limited. According to The Verge reports, from Microsoft, they explained that their choice was based on finding a balance between performance, autonomy and a reduced size since not needing a fan for cooling can have a much finer design.
The Surface Go with WiFi connectivity will go on sale on August 2, 2018, in some countries. The models with LTE will come out later. Of course, you can already reserve it online.
The price starts at $ 399 for the model with 64GB of eMMC storage and 4GB of RAM, up to $ 599 for 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. They have not yet revealed the price of the Surface Go in few countries but it will be similar. Of course, the keyboard ($ 99), mouse ($ 34.88) and the Surface Pen ($ 99) are not included.
