Today, Microsoft released the Surface Go, a 10″ version of it’s popular Surface laptop. Starting at $599, the Surface Go is available for pre-order now.
The screen is a PixelSense 10 Point Multitouch display with a 1800×1200 resolution. It includes an Intel Pentium Gold processor (4415Y) and 4GB RAM. The Surface Go has a 64GB internal storage, but with options for 128 and 256GB options and 8GB RAM. It features a USB-C connector, a built-in SD Card slot and a 3.5mm Headphone Jack, as well as most of the standard features you would expect (WiFi/Bluetooth). An LTE model will be available later in 2018.
Microsoft is touting the unit to have up to 9 hours battery life, but will probably achieve 6 – 7 under normal usage.
As clearly a direct competitor to the iPad Mini and other smaller Android tablets – but with the full power and functionality of Windows 10, the Surface Go is going to be a must-have for anyone who needs a small portable device for travel without the full power of a desktop experience.
The Surface Go is available for pre-order today and starts from $599 AUD including GST.
