Microsoft has been announcing refreshes to their Surface laptop family with the Surface Pro 8 and Surface Go 3, and Studio for example. 

The successor to the first Surface Laptop Go launched in 2020, Microsoft is announcing the availability of the Surface Laptop Go 2 that will go on sale in Singapore tomorrow.

With specs and a design somewhat similar to its predecessor, the Surface Laptop Go 2 weighs only 1.12kg, has a 12.4-inch PixelSense Display, a 1,536 x 1,024 resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio.

With a total of four different tiers, the only difference between the models is the amount of RAM and storage, the base model is powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

Pre-installed with Windows 11, it is equipped with a large precision trackpad with the keys having more travel room this time, so they feel more tactile. Unfortunately, like the Surface Laptop Go, the Go 2 lacks a backlit keyboard.

It features Instant On, and Windows Hello through the fingerprint reader integrated into the power button.

For those using it for work or school, Microsoft claims that its all-day battery life is rated at 13.5 hours, and it can recharge up to 80% in just over an hour with Fast Charging. There is even an improved HD camera and dual Studio Mics for improved video and audio calls.

 

Pricing and availability
