Microsoft’s Surface laptops and tablets can be viewed as the windows versions of Mac devices. These innovative machines aim to demonstrate the best of Windows experience on a laptop. Microsoft had launched the Surface Go earlier this year for the global market which is a tablet cum PC that is supposed to aid students. Now, Surface Go has been made available even in India starting today. So let us take a quick look at the specifications and features of this new 2-in-1 computer from Microsoft.
Microsoft Surface Go Features
This new Surface Go is a toned down version of the Surface laptop that still packs all the major traits of a Surface device. This affordable handheld device from Microsoft features a 10-inch PixelSense Display with a resolution of 1800x 1200 and an aspect ratio of 3:2. The device is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. It is powered by Intel’s Pentium Gold processor 4415Y which should breeze you through day-to-day tasks. However, it might not be a great performer if you are looking at graphic-intense games or advanced photo editing tools.
