More details of this latest version laptop from Microsoft are discussed below.
This laptop is exactly same as the Microsoft Surface Pro by looks and feel. It has a very premium look with silver finish and minimized bezels.

It has a front facing speaker to make videos more enjoyable. The Type Cover is another added benefit definitely.
Microsoft Surface Go is packed with a big 10-inch screen of 1800X1200 resolutions. This is definitely not the best 10-inch tablet but, it is really beautiful.

It is true that this tablet is not meant to offer high-level performance, but you can always enjoy web browsing, simple games and streaming of content with ease. It is to remind that Microsoft Surface Go is not designed for high-end games. So, it can’t handle such high-end games actually. The 8GB RAM is quite good to handle multitasking.
Microsoft ships the Surface Go with the Windows 10 S installed. This is the restricted version of Windows 10. It allows you to download the certified apps from Microsoft store. This OS is absolutely fine for regular work. However, you can always upgrade to the full Windows if you want.
