Microsoft has reclaimed its position as a competitor in personal computers. Point to be noted that there were Surface notebooks and Surface Pro convertible notebooks, but the Surface Go was a more budget-friendly version presented in 2018. Now, Microsoft has refreshed the version and presented the new Surface Go 2 at just $399. The Surface Go 2 is the entirely sleek and silvery look and starts with its 10.5-inch touchscreen display. It has more pixels to show off 1080p videos with ease at a 1920 x 1280 resolution and leaves your text clear and crisp when cranking out words or browsing the web. That high resolution also makes drawing using the pressure-sensitive Surface Pen a real delight, with lines looking smooth and fluid on what could be the perfect size for a portable, pen-friendly tablet.
That screen is also equipped with a front-facing 5-megapixel and a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera. Both support 1080p video streaming, beating other devices like Apple’s own MacBook Pro and their 720p cameras. Moreover, it supports Windows Hello as the company’s take on biometric security. It’s a great device for someone who needs to show their mug while they work from home. It also has a sweet kickstand (for adjusting the display’s angle from ramrod straight to nearly flat) discovered on the Surface Pro. You will find an underpowered Intel processor paired with an abysmal 4GB of RAM, along with 64GB of internal storage, and an extra $150 doubles both the RAM and internal storage.
The battery-friendly processors and Windows 10 S Mode software of Surface Go 2 allows it pretty lengthy uptime for such a small laptop. The device has a Detachable 2-in-1 laptop class with a 1.1 GHz Intel Core m3-8100Y processor. It features an Intel UHD 615 Graphics Processor, IPS panel technology, and a 60 Hz screen refresh rate. The Surface Go 2 runs Windows 10 Home OS, 802.11ax, Bluetooth, and estimated battery time of 13 hours. Its USB-C port, headphone jack, MicroSD card slot, and delightfully modern cameras beat those on certain high-end laptops.
