X'mas Gift Idea 2: A 2-in-1 device that strikes a good balance between portability and performance

Microsoft Surface Go – An ideal balance between portability and performance

2-in-1 computing devices are targeted at end users who need the portability and convenience of a tablet, as well as the full-fledged computing experience offered by a traditional desktop, on demand.

The Microsoft Surface Go attempts to address the varied needs of such users without breaking the bank. It is the most affordable Surface device with a starting price of just S$618. This entry-level model comes with  4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC storage. There's a second model with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD storage, and has a sticker price of S$828. Both variants are powered by the 7th-gen Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y mobile processor.

The 8.3mm-thin Surface Go weighs just 522g and features a 10-inch, 1,800 x 1,200-pixel PixelSense Display that supports the Surface Pen (available separately) with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Other Surface Go accessories include the Surface Go Type Cover and Surface Go Signature Type Cover, as well as the new Surface Mobile Mouse. They serve to enhance the functionality of the Surface Go according to the needs of the user.

The Microsoft Surface Go is a versatile Windows tablet with a rather wide selection of device-specific accessories to enhance its functionality. Order from the Microsoft store and select customers like students, parents, and educators are eligible for special prices starting from S$587.10. For more details, check out our initial coverage.
