Contents (maximize to view)

Microsoft has just unveiled the latest addition to its family of tablets – the Surface Go is basically a toned down version of its more powerful sibling, the Surface Pro.

The Surface Go has a 10-inch display with a resolution of 1800 x 1200 pixels. It’s powered by a Pentium Gold 4415Y processor, along with up to 8GB of RAM. For storage, you have two options – 64 GB eMMC or 128 GB SSD. It initially runs on Windows S, but you can upgrade it to a full version of Windows 10.

As far as connectivity is concerned, you get a USB Type-C port, a headphone jack, a Surface Connect port, a Surface Type Cover port, and a card reader. For now, only the Wi-Fi variant will be available, with the LTE version coming out some time this year.

As usual, Microsoft will be offering a number of handy accessories for the Surface Go, such as a wireless mouse, a Type Cover, and the Surface Pen. It will retail for $399 (around PhP21,000) for the 4GB/64GB variant, and $549 (around PhP29,000) for the 8GB/128GB variant.
