Microsoft has launched two new laptops today, a budget-oriented Surface Laptop Go and the second-generation variant of the Surface Pro X that was launched last year.
The new Surface Laptop Go has a 12.4-inch PixelSense multi-touch screen display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, 1536 x 1024 pixels resolution, and soft-bezels around the screen.
The Surface Laptop Go uses aluminum for the lid and polycarbonate composite resin system with glass fiber and 30% post-consumer recycled content for the base of the device and it weighs just 1.1 kilograms.
It comes in powered by a 10th-gen Intel Core i5-1035G1 processor with Intel UHD graphics paired with up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. It comes in with Windows 10 Home in S mode running out-of-the-box.
It also offers an HD Webcam that is placed on the top bezels of the screen, dual far-field microphones, and speakers with Dolby Audio support. It includes a 39W power supply that the company says can last for a day.
On connectivity, it offers 1x USB-C, 1x USB-A, Wi-Fi 802.11ax, Bluetooth 5.0, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Surface Connect port, and a fingerprint sensor for authentication.
