What the pros need to know — Microsoft Surface Go

Microsoft opens flagship Surface store in Taipei

The tablet comes with a 10.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1800 pixels by 1200 pixels. Microsoft says the company wanted to offer a no-compromise, predictable performance experience with the Go, thus opting for the classic Intel processors instead of something like Qualcomm's Snapdragon ARM processors. There's a choice of 4GB or 6GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 memory and either 64GB of eMMC storage or a 128GB SSD.

The tablet runs on Windows 10 Home (S) which means it is only capable of installing and running apps from the Windows store.

But just what is the Surface Go? The battery should last for about nine hours according to Microsoft, which is more than decent for a tablet.

A confirmed list of specs and configurations for the Microsoft Surface Go hasn't yet emerged but, thanks to the announcement blog post, we do know some general top-line specs.

The Surface Go is still more expensive than the cheapest iPad, but the Go tablet is compatible with professional features, like the detachable keyboard, that are missing on the entry-level iPad.

The Surface Go starts at $599 and will be available for preorder in Australia from tomorrow.

The Surface Go will be available for pre-order in Malaysia starting the 2nd of August 2018. It's nearly a surprise, as the more advanced Surface Pro doesn't have that yet (but we expect to see a refresh of the Surface Pro later this year).

Pricing for the Surface Go starts at $400, but you'll probably also need the keyboard type cover, which starts at $99. It has one of Microsoft's PixelSense screens too, so it has multi-touch support for when you want to collaborate on the same device, and you can use a Surface Pen on it - sold separately - for digital doodling.

An official document leaked by a Reddit user indicates that the device might possibly be launched this week, along with a new Type Cover.

Better yet, Microsoft has managed to deliver full-sized keys (now with more pronounced bowled edges) within such a small amount of space, and has included a glass trackpad that's larger in depth than that of the Surface Pro. With the Surface Connect port, you can power two external 2K monitors at once, so this slate can pull double duty as a full desktop PC. The cellular version will arrive later this year. Gone are the stark, angled edges of the Surface Pro in lieu of rounder, softer edges that help give this version of the Surface its own identity through such a relatively small adjustment. The snazzy Surface Type Cover adds $99 or $129 to the price, depending on which you get.

Rumors have been swirling that Microsoft is planning a new tablet launch this summer. We've played Minecraft on the Surface Go with not a dip in frame rate.
