Microsoft is at it again, making their devices more affordable, with the launch of the Surface Go – a 10″ device that has the mobility of a tablet and the performance of a laptop. It starts at A$ 599 RRP and is available for pre-order in Australia, from tomorrow. Working from anywhere just got much easier!
Their smallest and most affordable device yet (the Surface Go is just over 520 grams and 8.3 mm thin), it’s meant for people who might literally be on the go. Powered by the 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y, the Surface Go has a fan-less design and, according to Microsoft, offers up to 9 hours of battery life. It also offers a stunning, custom built high-resolution PixelSense Display, which is compatible with Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. That may seem like a lot of numbers, but what it all means is that the Surface Go might be small and slight, but it will most certainly give you the performance you need to be productive. Assuming the 9 hour battery life is for real, and not just a claim.
Microsoft’s vision behind developing the Surface Go was to have a more lightweight, productive, and accessible version of the popular Surface Pro device.
Surface Go also has all the ports you need, including:
- Surface Connect for charging and docking.
- USB-C 3.1 for data, video, and charging.
- A headphone jack.
- A MicroSDXC card reader for storage expansion.
The idea is that whether you’re a student studying in a library, a professional on the go, or sharing your content in a boardroom on a 4K monitor, the Surface Go is your perfect professional companion.
The Surface Go starts at A$ 599 RRP and is available for pre-order in Australia, from tomorrow.
