Microsoft’s new Surface Go is definitely taking its name to heart. That is to say, the device is breathlessly portable. Just how portable, you ask? Weighing in at a mere 1.15 pounds, the Surface Go is 10″ in size, and 8.3mm thin. It’s also Microsoft’s most affordable Surface yet, starting at AUD $599. Meanwhile, that’s all joined by the same tier of quality and functionality that fans have come to expect from the range. Indeed, it’s never been easier to take your 2-1 device on the go, hence the name.
From the new Surface Go, expect a custom-built, high-resolution 3:2 PixelSense Display, which delivers vibrant contrast and a softness that won’t pulverise your eyeballs. Naturally, the screen supports Surface Pen and its 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Under the skin is a 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y in a fanless design. The device is also good for up to nine hours of battery life at a time.
Built for travel, the Surface Go offers swift 2-1 functionality. When in laptop mode, the device is joined by a keyboard that’s ergonomic, optimal and precise. Also featured is a Windows Precision Trackpad, which supports five-point multi-finger gestures. If you’re more of a mouse man, you’re free to connect the Surface Mobile Mouse to the device, and then click accordingly. Meanwhile, you’ll have access to a full suite of apps, including Office.
Giving the Surface Go some physical support is a built-in kickstand with full friction hinge. Ensuring a secure sign-in is facial recognition by way of a Windows Hello camera. The device is also equipped with a USB-C 3.1 port, a headphone jack, and a MicroSD card reader. Use it as either a laptop or a tablet, and expect a tremendously swift experience. And it all comes in at the lowest price yet. Pre-order yours today.
