Microsoft Introduces Surface GO

Microsoft Introduces Surface GO


Microsoft has decided to start selling a cheaper version of the surface pro, called the GO. The device is pretty neat and compact attempting to get into the iPad world.  There are 2 versions prices at $399.00 and $549.00.  The Surface Go is set up to be the small-time Surface tablet you have been waiting for, exhibiting excellent design and the perfect amount of power for a 10-inch 2-in-1 tablet.

The cheaper version is 64GB / Intel 4415Y / 4GB RAM and the other device has 128GB / Intel 4415Y / 8GB RAM.    Below are some of the technical details and the accessories such as the keypad is additional purchase.

This is a smaller version of the Surface Pro only in that you’re getting a smaller device with less power to fit its new dimensions – not one that’s smaller in its feature set, too. While there are a lot of unknowns still, e.g. battery life, we’re confident that Surface Go will find its place.

For starters, the Surface Go is looking like a much better deal in the education sector than the latest iPad at practically all levels, even with a premium on it over Apple’s tablet. Ultimately, a full review will dictate our final judgment, but is Microsoft is looking to seriously shake up the tablet market in 2018 regardless.
