This is Microsoft Surface Go

View Comments			FacebookTwitterGooglePinterestLinkedInReddit

Microsoft has just announced the Surface Go tablet for $399 which is going to compete against the entry level Apple iPad, which now retails for $329.

The Microsoft Surface Go is a teeny-tiny laptop/tablet hybrid with a 10-inch screen, clocking in at just 1.15 pounds. Surface Go comes with 64GB eMMC and 128GB or 256GB SSD storage options.

Naturally, the Surface Go also offers a built-in kickstand that "extends to 165 degrees helps you stay in your flow from tablet to studio mode", and a front-facing camera that supports Windows Hello authentication.

Inside, the Surface Go is powered by an Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y with Intel HD615 graphics. But it's cheaper. A lot cheaper: the base model costs just $399, compared to $799 for the base Surface Pro.

The teams then traded two scores each before Ivan Rakitic calmly converted the winning penalty. Now, finally, there is a team ready to join them in Croatian football's pantheon of heroes.

So what's unique about the Surface Go? Microsoft also has a new smaller Surface Mobile Mouse if you want an external pointing device. With the Surface Connect port, you can power two external 2K monitors at once, so this slate can pull double duty as a full desktop PC. But for the general, everyday computer users, which includes students, the Surface Go may have indeed stumbled on the right formula. The Surface Go has been officially launched with a £379 price tag and Windows 10 S.

If you are looking for a daily driver in the corporate space, you should still be considering the Pro, while this device does have a Pentium Gold CPU, performance will still fall well below that of the Core CPU lineup from Intel.

Also, both tablets support pen input. The new 10-inch tablet is available now for pre-order in the USA and several other countries and is priced competitively to the iPad Mini, with a $399 price tag for the 64-GB storage option, and $549 for a 128-GB version. But you can upgrade to regular Windows 10 for free, which is what I'd do, because I need to run apps like Chrome, which aren't in the Windows Store. Specifically, with firstline workers or the education segment, this makes it easier to afford these devices but know that they do not come with a Type cover or a pen. The keen eyes of Sean Hollister at CNET suggest we'll find out tomorrow morning at 6 AM Pacific. Microsoft says the 27-watt-hour battery is rated for up to 9 hours of battery life. But while the Surface Go is indeed pocketable, it only has one screen, meaning that this ain't it.

The Surface Go will be available for pre-order beginning on July 10 in countries like the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.
