Microsoft unveils its smallest, cheapest Surface yet: The Surface Go

Microsoft Surface flagship in Taipei

Given that the Surface Pro display puts up 293 pixels per inch (ppi), and the Surface Go just 217 ppi (compared to the new iPad's 264 ppi), we're pleasantly surprised that the display left us with such an impression.

The system is powered by an Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y. While it comes with 4GB/8GB LPDDR3 and 64GB of eMMC storage, the users can also choose for 128GB/256GB SSD storage option.

All of the Surface Go machines ship with Windows 10 S installed, meaning only apps downloaded from the Microsoft Store can be used.

The aforementioned variants of the Microsoft Surface Go only support Wi-Fi connectivity for internet.

So, what's next for the Wild Boar? The acting governor of Chiang Rai state, Narongsak Osottanakorn, led the rescue operation. For days, divers strategized as teams of volunteers worked to drain water out of the cave.


Does Microsoft's Surface Go Tablet have the capability to disrupt the tablet market? Considering the physical form of the Surface Go first, it is headlined as being the smallest and lightest Surface yet. (My personal favorite for that is called Texture.) The battery on the Go lasts nine hours, which is flawless for everyday users. Microsoft is wanting to offer the Surface Go to people who use it all the time, so it has to be thin and portable enough to throw into your bag.

The iPad starts at $329, but when you add an Apple Pencil and Logitech keyboard, the total zooms up to $527.95.

Microsoft Surface devices primarily target high-powered creative types at a substantial price point, but the tech giant is looking to change that with a new $399 hybrid tablet.

In the coming weeks, Surface Go will be available for pre-order in Japan, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, and in China with more markets to follow.

He was unleashed in a roving attacking position to devastating effect against Brazil, scoring with a wonderfully sweet strike. Two years ago France lost the 2016 European Championship final to Portugal.


Pricing for the Surface Go starts at $400, but you'll probably also need the keyboard type cover, which starts at $99. It has a kickstand, metal-construction, support for inking, and comes with Windows 10 S and works with existing Surface accessories. If you're on a limited budget and trying to buy both a tablet and a Windows laptop, then the device just about gets you there for a reasonable price. The device is equipped with a Surface Connector for connecting a charger as well as linking it to a desktop dock. LTE versions will increase the price even more, but are only due out later this year.

The entry level model has 64gb of flash storage as well as 4GB of ram, but there will be a more expensive model that has 8gb of ram as well as 128gb of SSD storage.

What are the Surface Go specs?

According to our sister site ZDNet's resident Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley, the Surface Go is not a slimmed-down version of the Surface Pro, rather, "Microsoft execs said they re-engineered the device, in terms of size, weight, balance and design to make it appeal to all types of users on the go".
