Released on August 2, 2018, the Surface Go is a 2-in-1 computer that is part of the Surface family of products offered by Microsoft. It features a 10-inch touch screen display with a 1800 x 1200 resolution. Similar to its Surface Pro counterpart, there is an available Type Cover that acts as a keyboard and screen protector. The Surface Pen is also available, allowing users to write on the screen and launch the OneNote application. These accessories are sold separately.
The Microsoft Surface Go is the smallest, lightest, and least expensive product in the Surface product line. Consequently, its performance is less than that of the other Surface products. It is intended for use by students and professionals who need a thin and portable device with a complete operating system, but do not require heavy computing power.
