Microsoft comes with an extensive range of devices that aims to target different markets with different levels of performance and different price tags.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go Vs Surface Laptop 3

The Surface Laptop Go is the most economical Surface laptop targeting students and those who are looking for a pocket-friendly laptop. The company also plans to offer its best Microsoft software and apps at a cost starting at £549.99to broaden its laptop audience. It is half the price as that of the predecessor and provides the same premium Windows 10 experience. The Surface Laptop Go is a lighter, smaller, and cheaper version of the Surface Laptop 3.

The surface laptop Go looks like Laptop 3 and the only difference is that having a smaller 12.4 inch touchscreen but it uses the company’s Pixel Sense technology. It comes with platinum, sandstone, ice blue-colored metal finish. Laptop Go has a fingerprint sensor to log in and is powered by Windows Hello biometric authentication and is having the same full-sized backlit keyboard with 1.3mm travel and a large precision trackpad for a comfortable typing experience.

The Laptop Go has a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 processor and with four cores and eight threads through which we can do daily tasks like watching videos, browsing the web, editing large documents as well as photos. The Core i5-1035G1 is a great choice for this class of laptops. However, it has a couple of downfalls like a low level of RAM and small basic storage. It is not so great for a new-gen laptop. For the basic device 4GB RAM is available and to avoid slowdowns for doing multi-tasks to you have to opt for 8GB. The basic model has small storage, will take a little longer time to open programs, and has a slower boot speed. You can overcome both the problems if you are opting for the next model that has a faster and larger 128GB SSD and 8GB RAM but you have to spend an extra £150.

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go comes with up to 16GB RAM and 256GB storage and each configuration are optimized for maximum performance and battery life In ‘S Mode’, for the first use, you will be able to install the apps only from the Windows store. PixelSense touchscreen in Surface Laptop Go comes with an aspect ratio of 3:2 and has a 1536x1024 pixels resolution. Surface 3 has 200 pixels –per-inch while Surface Go has a steep decline compared with Surface 3 and is having a 148 pixels-per-inch display.

For better video calling and for shooting videos, it comes with a 720p HD webcam at the front and two studio-quality mics, which is rare for this type of device. It also features Dolby Audio and Omnisonic Speakers. Conversely, it lacks Windows Hello Face recognition, but some variants come with a fingerprint sensor inbuilt on the power button in certain models for a quick and secure sign-in.

The Laptop Go is made of plastic but uses aluminum for its top to reduce the weight. It is very light and weighs about 1.11kg can easily be fit into a small bag. But it will not feel as pleasing to the touch as the full-metal and fabric Surface Laptop 3.

Microsoft has put more effort into the speakers, screen, as well as build quality, and offers a better battery life. The affordable variant Surface Laptop Go runs Intel's UHD Graphics and offers up to 13 hours of battery life on a single recharge. The Microsoft Surface Go even supports fast charging and is claimed to top the battery to 80% in just an hour.
The Surface Go has the same port selection as its larger sibling Surface 3, including one traditional USB-A port, one USB-C port, a Surface Connect socket for power and connectivity. There is a headphone socket as well. It also supports Bluetooth 5and the latest Wi-Fi 6 standards. 

Microsoft has made some cuts to bring a superior design to the mid-range looking for a new laptop and to expand to encompass more people. Then the Surface Laptop Go attempt will be a nice new entrant at an amazing price for creating a makeshift of offices and classrooms.
