I know you came here to read about a laptop/notebook review considering what you’ve seen or heard about, but I would like to consider the Surface Go as a tablet rather than the standard 2-in-1 laptop.
The Surface Pro is basically a computer that makes up for its lacking of computing power for its versatility and portability.
Although I consider it a tablet, it’s actually a better alternative than doing your tasks in an android or ios tablet as these platforms are somewhat limiting in terms of the software they’re bundled with.
- Processor: Intel Pentium Gold (Dual Core with 4 Virtual Cores)
- Memory: 8 gigabytes of RAM
- Storage: 128 NVMe SSD
- Screen: 10-inch Display
- Weight: 1.15 pounds (522 grams)
- Battery Runtime: 9.5 Hours (According to the manufacturer)
- If you’re the type of person who binges TV shows on Netflix, this shouldn’t pose a problem for the Surface pro. Its design is super-convenient, plus it has that premium touch to its design that makes it worth it to carry around on your trips to the coffee shop for some casual computing.
- The screen quality is superb with its 10-inch IPS screen.
- Although the specs don’t look so promising on paper, it gives you what you need in real-life scenarios as it gets the job done. It hits the sweet spot between design and functionality.
- Although it is advertised as a 2-in-1 laptop that you could use as a tablet, the keyboard cover is sold separately, which would cost you around 99$ (£75) to 129$ (£90) on top of the $399 (£302.17) you bought it for. So it’s a bit of an investment to get the best out of the device.
- It’s not that of a beast when it comes to computing power, as it only packs a dual-core Intel processor, so you might not be able to do some super heavy workloads.
If you’re looking for a casual on the go 2-in-1 and would have no problems throwing in some extra cash to get the best out of the device, you should probably consider the Microsoft Surface Go.
