This device is said to be smaller, easier to keep at all times with you, and cheaper. It sounds amazing, right? Well, it’s also going to be less powerful. And you’ll have to buy additional things for it, meaning that the price could get higher.
Microsoft Surface Go to keep the place of a PC
We know for sure that the price will get up to $399 (£299 and AU$599). The device ’s smaller, it has a 10-inch display, in comparison with the 12.3-inch Pro device, the latter which makes us feel like we’re holding an iPad.

It’s a step back when it comes to the processing power. We cannot really understand the difference between them 2, instead of the obvious ones.
It will come with an Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y CPU, 64GB eMMC storage, or 128GB or 256GB SSD storage. The display will be of 10-inch, 1,800 x 1,200 display and it will have 4GB or 8GB RAM.
