As the tech bubble is now waiting to see Apple announce new iPhones and other devices this morning, Microsoft has started shipping its new Surface Laptop Go, updated Surface Pro X, and new PC accessories today. Starting at $549.99, the Surface Laptop Go is a smaller and cheaper version of the company’s Surface Laptop with a 12.4” display, a 10th gen Intel Core i5 processor, and up to 8GB of RAM.
Early reviews for the new Surface device are pretty mixed so far, with most critics pointing out the insufficient 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage on the base model. While the Surface Laptop Go still shows Microsoft’s attention to design, the lack of backlit keyboard, the plastic base and the low-resolution screen can also be hard to swallow at this price point.
Starting today, Microsoft’s ARM-based Surface Pro X tablet is also available with a faster Microsoft SQ2 processor for the premium models starting at $1,499. A new Platinum finish is also available exclusively for these new configurations with an SQ 2 processor, 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. The rest of the specs are identical to the original Surface Pro X with the SQ1 processor, which is available for just $799 ($200 off) for a limited time.
Lastly, Microsoft is also launching today a new $69.99 Designer Compact Keyboard, a $49.99 Bluetooth Ergonomic Mouse, a $29.99 Number Pad, and a $69.99 4K Wireless adapter. To learn more about the new products, you can tune it to the first Microsoft Store Insider Stream featuring Justine "iJustine" Ezarik and her sister Jenna at 4PM PT today.
