A few hours ago we updated about the budget Microsoft Surface tablet, and now the company has made it official as Microsoft Surface Go with pricing starts at $399 MSRP.
The new Surface Go is Microsoft’s smallest (10-inch) and affordable tablet comes with features like PixelSense display, design cues, and an inbuilt kickstand. These features can also be found on the Microsoft Surface Pro.
“That’s the idea behind the design of Surface Go – our smallest, lightest, and most affordable Surface yet. When we designed this device, we had to ask ourselves what people want and need from a 10” Surface. The answers seem obvious – lightweight, productive, and accessible to more people,” Panos Panay, Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer said in a blog post.
Microsoft Surface Go Specifications
In order to keep the cost low, the Surface Go tablet packs more modest internal components. The tablet is powered by a 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y and comes with a 10-inch PixelSense display that supports Surface Pen.
For connectivity, it features Surface Connect for charging and docking, USB-C 3.1, a headphone jack, and a MicroSD card reader for storage expansion.
The tablet runs Windows 10 with S mode enabled out-of-the-box giving you the ability to access the Edge browser and apps available in the Microsoft Store. It also comes with Netflix or Hulu app support.
