Microsoft announces Surface Go, an affordable 10-inch tablet aimed for students, regular users, and mostly everyone else with a light budget.
Microsoft Surface Go
The new Microsoft Surface Go is designed for budget-conscious consumers looking for a portable and convenient productivity tool. The Windows 10 tablet is powered by a quad-core Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor, Intel Graphics 615, and RAM/storage combination choices of 4GB/64GB eMMC or 8GB / 128GB SSD.
The Surface Go has a 10-inch full HD PixelSense touchscreen display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a 1800 x 1200 resolution, topped by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It has large bezels all-around, which is good considering you need something to hold on to when handling the tablet.
Like other Surface devices, this one also has a magnesium alloy body, a built-in kickstand which can be adjusted in multiple positions, and Microsoft’s Surface Connector for charging and connecting accessories.
For added versatility, Microsoft included a USB Type-C port that is capable of charging, accept external accessories, or output to video.
Along with the Surface Go, the company also debuted a number of accessories for the tablet. There are two optional keyboard covers available in four colors, a Surface pen stylus, and a new Surface Mobile Mouse.
