  • Microsoft Surface Go

Priced at £319, it costs a full £60 less than Microsoft's offering, and even if you buy the Logitech keyboard case recommended by Apple, you'll only just tip over the £400 mark, whereas the Surface Go will cost nearly £500 with the keyboard. This week, editors Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden talk everything Surface Go. The 12.3-inch Chromebook, with a display resolution of 2400×1600, is touted as the first 2-in-1 detachable in the Chrome OS family.

The PixelSense display's resolution is 1800 x 1200 and sits at a 3:2 aspect ratio.

It's not the first time Microsoft has targeted students with Surface hardware.

The company is offering a new Surface Mobile Mouse that is also up for preorder and comes in at £29.99.

Measuring 9.6 inches by 6.9 inches and a third of an inch thick, the Surface Go comes close to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro in terms of portability.

Microsoft is claiming nine hours of battery life, which should be enough for all-day working if it turns out to be accurate. Other specs f the tablet include a headphone jack, microSDXC card slot, Surface Connector, and a USB-C 3.1 port. You may be tempted to order it from the Microsoft Store, but I must urge you not to. Why? For comparison's sake, the Surface Pro now retails for $799.

Microsoft chief product officer Panos Panay said the Surface Go is meant to be a more accessible way to get hold of the Surface's premium features. "Being able to run Office apps on this device with its portability is one of the things that was critical to the experience we had in mind when we designed Surface Go - the productivity of having the apps you use for work and school with the flexibility to relax and read or watch a show on Netflix or Hulu", stated Panay. You'll have to pay extra for the keyboard, as you also will for the Surface Pen, neither of which come bundled with the tablet.

Until then the tablet is available to preorder on the Microsoft Store.
