Microsoft's Surface Laptop Go

Microsoft's Surface Laptop Go
Compact and inexpensive laptops occupy a certain niche in the market, which is currently dominated by Apple MacBook Air and Chromebook devices. Microsoft previously announced plans to release an inexpensive budget Windows laptop in the Surface series with a 12.4-inch display. Now the official presentation of computers called Surface Laptop Go has taken place. In the United States, the price of a laptop will be $ 549. However, the comfortable price of the Surface Laptop Go, as in the Surface Go 2 tablets, required the manufacturer to reduce certain technical characteristics.

The design of the case of Surface Laptop Go computers is made in the style of standard laptops of the Microsoft Surface line. The compact size of the device allowed the manufacturer to install a 12.4-inch screen with a resolution of 1536×1024, like the older version of the Surface Laptop 3 with a 13.5-inch display. The aspect ratio is 3:2.

In addition to its compact size, the laptop also has a small weight, only 1.11 kg, the smallest among the Surface series of computers. The new product will also be lighter than the main competitors Apple MacBook Air, Chromebook and compact Windows laptops available on the market. However, the small size of the laptop did not prevent developers from equipping the Surface Laptop Go with a full-size keyboard with a 1.3 mm key stroke and a large Windows Precision trackpad.

The hardware of the Surface Laptop Go runs on an Intel 10th-generation Core i5-1035G1 processor with 4 cores (1.0/3.6 GHz) and 8 threads. The amount of RAM is 4 GB, and the eMMC drive has a capacity of only 64 GB. It is the amount of RAM and storage that is the main drawback of the laptop.

The Surface Laptop Go has one USB-C and USB-A connector, a 3.5 mm audio port, and a special Surface Connect for charging and connecting accessories. The 720p front-facing camera does not support Windows Hello face identification. Security is provided by a fingerprint scanner built into the laptop's start button.

Fast charging technology is supported, which provides 0 to 80% of the battery power in one hour. The case of the laptop will be presented in three colors: blue, platinum and yellow. Microsoft is also launching a range of accessories for the Surface series: the designer Compact Keyboard for $ 69.99, the Microsoft Number Pad for $ 24.99, and the 4K Wireless Display Adapter for $ 69.99.
