Microsoft Unveils $399 Surface Go Tablet Running Windows 10S

Microsoft Unveils $399 Surface Go Tablet Running Windows 10S

The Surface Go has a 10-inch 3:2 (1800 x 1200) PixelDensity multi-touch display, surrounded by thick bezels.

Interestingly, the Microsoft Surface Go comes with a USB Type-C port alongside a Surface Connect port, a microSDXC card reader and a 3.5mm headphone jack. But while it's not going to appeal to power users, the Surface Go might actually win in its most important battle: taking on the iPad and the new breed of Chrome OS tablets. "Microsoft now offers the Surface Go in Wi-Fi-only flavor with LTE version coming “later this year".

Under the hood, the Surface Go packs a 7th-gen 1.6GHz Pentium Gold 4415y CPU, a two-core, four-thread processor that's far from Intel's finest.

The device runs Windows 10 in S mode but can be upgraded to Windows 10 Home for those of you who want apps from sources beyond the Windows Store. But it's cheaper. A lot cheaper: the base model costs just $399, compared to $799 for the base Surface Pro. Yeah, it should work well on a table or desk, but this is a portable machine - you don't always have a flat surface when on the go. Microsoft today also unveiled the Surface Mobile Mouse with Bluetooth pairing for $35.

Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018: Belgium, France into the next round
We have beaten Brazil in the World Cup , we have created a nice memory, let's treasure it and pass it down. However, in Fifa World Cup 2018, the status quo has changed so far.

Worst of all, the bezels are insanely large, making Surface Go look quite ugly.

First, as a tablet, the Surface Go will square off against Apple's productivity-focused iPad Pro, which starts at $649 for a 10.5-inch model. Microsoft 365 will be an option, as will Windows Autopilot, Microsoft's device provisioning service, for the Surface Go devices. Both are, of course, optional which does leave you with nothing but a Windows 10 tablet, which is actually also the point.

Microsoft said: "Surface Go will be available for pre-order beginning on July 10 in the following markets, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain". The company just launched a 10” Surface Go with Windows 10 out of the box, although with its lite S flavor. The company is claiming nine hours of battery life.

While the Surface Go does have the Surface's iconic kickstand built-in, the Surface Go Type Cover isn't included in the price, and it'll cost you an extra $99. The Type Cover's keys, similar in size to shrunken HP Mini netbooks of a decade ago, were comfortable and could be typed on with big adult fingers. After even just a brief time with the Surface Go, we're plenty optimistic about it. Pre-orders have opened, but actual shipping starts in August.
