Microsoft Surface Go

Meet the new Microsoft Surface Go, the smallest and most affordable Surface yet comes with the 7th Gen Intel Pentium Gold and up to 9 hours of battery life.

Microsoft Surface Go

The Surface Go is slightly smaller and lighter than the Surface 3. It features a 10-inch PixelSense display with a higher resolution of 1800 x 1200 with pixels density of 217 PPI. The device shared many great features from its big brother, The new Surface Pro, including the new 165° full friction kickstand, Windows Hello support, Surface Connect port, LTE option, and a rounded edge design.

The new Surface Go also comes along with a USB-C 3.1 port for data transfers, display out, and alternate charging solution. It also runs on a 7-Gen Intel Pentium Gold processor which is a significant jump up from the Intel Cherry Trail Atom processor in the Surface 3.
