More details of this latest version laptop from Microsoft are discussed below.

Design

This laptop is exactly same as the Microsoft Surface Pro by looks and feel. It has a very premium look with silver finish and minimized bezels. The most prominent change in the design is the rounded edges and angles. All the edges are prominently rounder while the hinge is designed to bend the laptop almost 180 degree. It has a front facing speaker to make videos more enjoyable. The Type Cover is another added benefit definitely.

Display

Microsoft Surface Go

Microsoft Surface Go is packed with a big 10-inch screen of 1800X1200 resolutions. This is definitely not the best 10-inch tablet but, it is really beautiful. You can enjoy everything starting from movies, games, and videos in this display. The color accuracy, 3:2 aspect ratio and the photo perfect look is highly appreciable.

Performance

You can enjoy a hassle-free performance in this tablet due to the core Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor. It is true that this tablet is not meant to offer high-level performance, but you can always enjoy web browsing, simple games and streaming of content with ease. It is to remind that Microsoft Surface Go is not designed for high-end games. So, it can’t handle such high-end games actually. The 8GB RAM is quite good to handle multitasking.

Software

Microsoft ships the Surface Go with the Windows 10 S installed. This is the restricted version of Windows 10. It allows you to download the certified apps from Microsoft store. This OS is absolutely fine for regular work. However, you can always upgrade to the full Windows if you want.

Battery

Microsoft claims that the Surface Go can run for 9 hours in one full charge. This sounds bit shocking actually. However, 6-7 hours of battery life you can definitely expect which is quite impressive.

Overall, this is a good choice for every single person who is looking a budgeted smaller laptop appropriate for all kind of tasks.
