The Surface Go is the smallest member of Microsoft’s family of Surface tablets and detachable laptops, providing a compact and affordable version of the best tablet PC out there. Finally make its debut in May with some notable upgrades, the new Surface Go 2 will boast an Intel Pentium Gold 4425Y 1.7GHz processor and 4GB of memory in the base model. A 64GB solid-state drive comes standard, though larger 128GB or 256GB SSDs will also be available.
A higher-end configuration will also be offered, with a 1.1GHz Intel Core m3-8100Y processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage.
An optional LTE modem is also available, and provides a level of mobile connectivity that most Windows tablets can’t match. At this point, it looks like the LTE option is only available on the more expensive model.
Surface Go 2 will reportedly start at $399 for the base variant with an Intel Pentium Gold processor ticking alongside 4GB of RAM and 64 gigs of onboard storage. But this year, Microsoft is bringing more power to the table with a Core m3 (8100Y) variant that doubles the amount of RAM and also packs a faster 128GB SSD.
