Microsoft Surface lineup The Microsoft Surface Go Will Start at $400. Is That a Deal?

Although this is the cheapest Surface in the lineup, Microsoft spent a lot on the PixelSense screen and although it is a 10-incher, it has a decent 1800x1200 resolution, which adds up to 216 ppi of pixel density, and has a 1500:1 contrast ratio. There are Chromebooks that cost around the same as the Surface Go and provide better battery life. The display is 10 inches, with an 1800x1200p screen resolution.

It's not the first time Microsoft has targeted students with Surface hardware. Among the 13.5-inch laptop's most distinguishing features is a keyboard wrapped in Alcantara, a suede-like synthetic fabric from Italy used in some luxury auto interiors.

Inside you get an Intel Pentium Gold processor, 4GB of Ram and 64GB of flash storage, though higher-end models get more Ram and faster storage.

Pricing starts at $399 for the Wi-Fi only version, $549 for the Wi-Fi+LTE combo with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and $599 for the Windows 10 Pro LTE version.

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.

The Surface Go features USB-C, a headphone jack, a Surface Connect port and a microSD slot. It features backlit mechanical keys like the full-sized offering and a glass trackpad. Is the new Surface Go a step in the right direction pricewise? 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.

Microsoft is particularly keen to note that Surface Go will first come to the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, while Japan, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, China and other markets should get a pre-order option in the coming weeks. For comparison's sake, the Surface Pro now retails for $799. Microsoft is accepting preorders in select markets, including the U.S., Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and other part of Europe, with an August 2 ship date.
