Microsoft debuts US$399 low-end Surface Go tablet

Microsoft debuts US$399 low-end Surface Go tablet

Sales from Microsoft's Surface line increased 32 percent in its most recent quarter, but the series of tablets and laptops still lag behind market leader Apple's iPad and MacBook series (which has faced its own struggles). The laptop-tablet hybrid is extremely light, weighing in at only 1.15 pounds.

The Surface Go notebook is priced at $399 (Rs 27,000), which makes it the most affordable computer from Microsoft.

Microsoft has launched the new Surface Go which has turned out to be the new cheaper Surface Pro alternative that we knew the company has been into making for some time now. The device is equipped with an Intel processor, the base model will get CPU Pentium Silver N5000, and the older models can be equipped with Pentium Gold (Gold 4410Y Intel Pentium or Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y from Kaby Lake).

The Surface Go has two variants: a $399 4 GB RAM version with 128 GB of SSD storage, or one with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage, which bumps the price up to $549.

Microsoft Surface Go UK release date: When's it coming out?

Just like the 6th Gen iPad, the Surface Go moniker does compromise with some of the features, compared to the original Surface book, which has helped the company to reduce the manufacturing cost of the same.

The display supports input through Surface Pen with up to 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Finding new and more ways to engage with the fans is massively important to me, they make the sport what it is. Unfortunate because Le Castellet first time we got taken out and now it is the second time we got taken out.

A range-topping version will offer 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, but prices for this model have yet to be announced.

And crucially, the Surface Go's £380 price tag makes it almost £370 cheaper than its range-topping sibling. The new device also sports the Surface Connect port, USB-C 3.1 (for data and charging), a headphone jack, and a MicroSD card reader.

Microsoft made no mention of what version of Windows 10 this runs but, as it hasn't specifically stated it, it's likely you'll be working with Windows 10 Home instead of the pared-down Windows found on the Surface Laptop. For the target market, that shouldn't matter too much, but Microsoft has still pushed for parity with other Surface family members by supporting a Type Cover for Surface Go, the Surface Pen and Surface Mobile Mouse. It featuresa Windows Hello camera and secure sign-in using face recognition. The Surface Go will begin to hit shelves in stores on August 2, with an LTE model to follow as well later this year.
