Microsoft Unveils $399 Surface Go Tablet Running Windows 10S

Surface Go is the smallest and cheapest 10-inch tablet on offer from Microsoft, weighing in at just 1.15 pounds - 0.25 pounds lighter than the Surface 3, and a smidgen heavier than the 1.03-pound iPad. The 10-inch screen is nearly a full inch smaller.

On a portable the port choice is crucial and Microsoft has provided USB-C 3.1 for data, video, and charging; a headphone jack; and a MicroSD card reader - as well as the Surface Connect for charging and docking. Perhaps because this information leaked out to the public, Microsoft has now officially announced its new tablet as the Microsoft Surface Go and priced it at a very tempting £380. A Wi-Fi-only model will arrive first, with LTE-equipped versions launching later in the year. A device powered by the 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y, in a fanless design, offering up to nine hours of battery. Unfortunately, as with the more powerful Surface Pro tablets, a keyboard is not included, making the initial price a bit misleading.

In terms of ports, the Surface Go is more limited than its larger brethren. Microsoft also has a new smaller Surface Mobile Mouse if you want an external pointing device. A $549 version - $599 for commercial buyers - includes 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This means that the Surface tablet will possibly be available for purchase by this Friday. Microsoft 365 will be an option, as will Windows Autopilot, Microsoft's device provisioning service, for the Surface Go devices.

While we won't know anything concrete about the Intel Pentium Gold processor's capabilities until we give it a full run of our benchmarks in a review, we're optimistic about the little-known chip. We've played Minecraft on the Surface Go with not a dip in frame rate. In case you wish to though, you can upgrade to the regular version of Windows for free.


There's one other way the Surface Go stands out versus the iPad.

The Surface Go's PixelSense screen supports Microsoft's Surface Pen with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, but the stylus will set you back an extra $99, as will Microsoft's new Surface Go Signature Type Cover that comes with a Windows Precision Trackpad baked-in. When used with the Surface Go's built-in kickstand, it provides a reliable laptop-esque typing setup.

The Surface Go will be available for pre-order beginning on July 10 in countries like the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.
