Last night, Microsoft took the wraps off their 10-inch Surface Go tablet. The newest Surface device looks perfect for students, parents, or teachers, and if you’re itching to get your hands on it you can now officially pre-order at the Microsoft Store.
The base model Surface Go starts at $399.00, with a 64GB of eMMC flash memory storage and 4GB of RAM. This price does not include the Surface Go Type Cover or Surface Pen, which are $129, and $99, bringing the total price of the bundle up to $627. You also can choose to pre-order a second model, with a 128GB SSD and 8GB RAM for $549.00 (accessories not included.)
Microsoft’s Surface Go features a 10-inch display at 1800 x 1200 resolution with the traditional 3:2 aspect ratio. The device is fanless and is powered by Windows 10 Home in S Mode, and Intel’s Pentium Gold 4415Y processor. All Surface Go models come with a USB C connector, a microSD Card slot, a Surface connect port, a headphone jack, and Microsoft’s Surface kickstand built in. There’s also a Windows Hello 5 MP front-facing camera on board, and an 8MP rear camera too.
Currently, pre-orders are only available in US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. Microsoft is planning on opening up pre-orders in Japan, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, and in China in the coming weeks.
An LTE variant of the Surface Go is also coming later this year, and users can switch the device out of S Mode for free. Vote in our poll today and let us know if you’re planning on picking up a Surface Go!Further reading: Microsoft, Preorder, Surface, Surface Go
