The Surface Laptop Go has a 12.4-inch PixelSense touchscreen display, Intel's 10th Gen i5 Quad-Core processor, up to 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, up to 13 hours of battery life, fast charging, and only weighs 2.45 pounds. The screen has 1536 x 1024 pixels, a 3:2 aspect ratio, and comes as standard with 10-point multi-touch.
Although we had every reason to expect Microsoft to hold some sort of an event this fall dedicated to something other than the experimental Surface Duo, the Redmond-based tech giant made absolutely no effort to build buzz for what was ultimately announced earlier today.
Notably, even with the small size of the Surface Laptop Go, the keyboard is still full-size and offers a solid 1.3mm of key travel, according to Microsoft.
Microsoft has launched a Surface Laptop Go, a more affordable version of its popular Surface Laptop 3.

A 12.4-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio corresponds to a resolution of 1,536 x 1,024 pixels and a pixel density of 148 PPI, which are both considerably lower values than the two versions of the Surface Laptop 3 that Microsoft released past year. The company has opted for a 'polycarbonate composite resin with glass fibre [s]' for the base and an aluminium display lid. These include updates and optimizations to the Visual Studio Code for Windows on ARM, which is expected to boost overall performance and increase battery life (up to 15 hours) across all Surface Pro X configurations (including the ones powered by Microsoft's SQ1 chip).
The Surface Laptop Go starts at US$549.99 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, but there is a version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage that retails for US$699.99. The device is priced starting at $1,499.99, and it will be available across other retailers starting from October 13th. Apart from the good looks, the Surface Pro X is incredibly portable. There are USB-A and USB-C ports, an audio jack and the Surface connector.
Microsoft on Thursday introduced the Surface Laptop Go, a lighter-weight and less powerful iteration of the company's notebook lineup at a price that undercuts Apple's cheapest MacBook Air. The new processor, the SQ2, is "the fastest processor in its class", Microsoft said in a blog post. Microsoft will begin shipping the Surface Laptop Go from October 13 in the USA, but other markets must wait until November. It's also launching three new colors for the Pro X keyboards: Ice Blue, Poppy Red and Platinum. Instead, Microsoft is only using it for the top-end SKUs of the Pro X.
