Surface Go Key Features

The Surface Go (1st Gen) 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 a pixel density of 217 PPI. The device shared many great features with its big brother, The new Surface Pro, including the new 165° full friction kickstand, Windows Hello support, Surface Connect port, LTE option, and a more rounded edge design.

The original Surface Go also comes along with a USB-C 3.1 port for data transfers, display out, and alternate charging solutions. 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.
