Microsoft has unveiled its smallest and cheapest line of tablet Surface

Posted July 13, 2018

The Surface Go is a decent little device, but it's more suited to competing with the likes of Apple's iPad than it is with the Surface Pro.

How does it compare with the Surface Pro? It measures 245 x 175 x 8.3 mm and weighs about 512 grams.

Microsoft introduced the Surface Go, a smaller tablet computer that can be seen as a rival to Apple's iPad, Google's Chromebooks or relatively affordable Windows laptops. It features a 10-inch screen, an integrated kickstand and is, keeping continuity and identity in mind, similar to the Surface Pro line's design. The company claims that the device can last up to 9 hours on a single charge and this processor is paired with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash storage.

Out of the box, the Surface Go also runs Windows 10 S. This means that, until you upgrade it to Windows 10 proper, it'll only have access to the Edge web browser and select Microsoft Store apps.

The Go also gets a USB-C port, the latest physical connectivity standard, which is not available on any other Surface tablet.

It comes with 10-inch custom-built high-resolution PixelSense Display that supports Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, low latency, and precision for accurate note taking, drawing and computer-aided design.

Moreover, if you want to use Surface Go as a true laptop alternative, you'll have to fork over an extra $99 at minimum for a custom type cover accessory that adds a keyboard with a built-in trackpad, if not $129 for a keyboard cover with a suede-like "Alcantara" fabric, available in three colors.

Surface Go supports the Windows Hello feature that lets you use the front-facing camera of the tablet to sign in with your mug. It's a little heavier than the Surface Go and measures up at almost a couple of inches longer, but that doesn't detract from it being a versatile, compact device. The Surface Go is an intriguing low-priced detachable for travelers, education buyers, and others who want to launch into Microsoft's well-made, attractive Surface 2-in-1s on a tight budget.
