Microsoft has announced a new Surface Laptop, the Surface Laptop Go.
It's the smallest in the Surface Laptop series of pure notebooks that aren't keyboard-removable and has the smallest 12.4-inch display.
It features a 10th generation Intel Core i5 processor with a 13-hour battery and the performance you'd expect from a lightweight notebook, as well as a stylish aluminum and fiberglass/polycarbonate composite body with a choice of inexpensive configurations starting at $549.99 (84,480 yen including tax in Japan).
The current lineup of the Surface laptop series, which doesn't come off the keyboard, includes a 13.5-inch and a 15-inch version, but the Surface Laptop Go is a smaller 12.4-inch version.
The Laptop Go is lighter for its size, weighing 1110 grams, compared to 1265-1288 grams for the Laptop 3 13.5-inch.
The poor and inexpensive minimum configuration is also typical of the Surface, with the Surface Laptop Go's cheapest $549.99 configuration being a Core i5, 4GB RAM and 64GB SSD.
The top configuration is
8GB / 128GB for $699.99 (102,080 yen in Japan)
8GB / 256GB for $899.99 (126,280 yen in Japan)
If you want more performance, go for the Surface Pro or Surface Book.
It's already available for pre-order and will be available on October 13.
