The Surface Laptop Go, as the name suggests, is a toned-down version of the Surface Laptop 3. It comes with a smaller screen, lower RAM and storage options, and a few compromises.
It features a 12.45-inch PixelSense Display with 3:2 ratio and 1,536×1,024 pixels resolution. The touch screen supports 10-point multi-touch. The Surface Laptop Go’s display is mediocre, the colours looked fine, but the resolution is pretty low in comparison to other surface lineup. Microsoft should have had included a minimum of a Full HD+ display or better found in other surface lineup at this price point.
When it comes to the processor, the Laptop Go is not exactly a powerhouse nor it’s a slouch. It uses an older Intel i5-1035G1 processor. It is also got Intel’s old UHD graphics instead of the impressive new Xe graphics available on the newer chips. Microsoft Surface Laptop Go is a Windows 10 laptop which is the best operating system for gaming and daily use. The Surface Laptop Go runs on Windows 10 Home in S mode.
It can be equipped with 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The base model carries 64GB of eMMC storage but comes with options for 128GB and 256GB SSDs. SSD storage options transfer data at a higher speed than eMMC storage.
Microsoft says the battery in the Surface Laptop Go can last up to 13 hours and it supports fast charging with just over one hour of charge giving you 80 percent battery. It includes a USB Type-C port, a USB Type-A port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Wi-Fi 6: 802.11ax, and Bluetooth 5.0.
The surface laptop go is close to perfect but not perfect because of its price which should have been much lower, it looks way more premium than it is. Microsoft should have at least given FHD+ display. Otherwise, it should be great for daily use. Microsoft has not announced India’s pricing and availability for the Surface Laptop Go yet. It starts at $549.99 (roughly Rs. 40,300) in the US.
