Surface Laptop Go
Microsoft has just officially released a cheap version of the Surface Laptop, called the Surface Laptop Go, which features a 12.4-inch screen that starts at $549 (RM2,300), while Microsoft has also released a second-generation Surface Pro X that upgrades to the SQ2 processor.
Every year in early October, Microsoft holds a launch of Surface hardware products, this year due to the outbreak, the October launch was canceled online, directly on the official microblogging blog to publish new products.
Surface Laptop Go
Surface Laptop Go is the highlight of the new product, which debuted two years ago and just launched a second generation in May, primarily for surface starters.
Just as Microsoft has in the past launched a product design called Surface Go for the Surface Series, the expected new Surface Laptop, named after surface Laptop Go, fills in the more starting requirements of the Surface Laptop family.
Prior to that, Microsoft had launched a 13.3-inch Surface Laptop that corresponds to mainstream market demand, as well as a 15-inch version that meets high-end usage needs, so the choice of a new entry-level model will enrich the surface Laptop family.
Surface Laptop Go’s overall design style continues that of the Surface Laptop, which is made of metal.The Surface Laptop Go features a 12.4-inch Pixel Sense touch display with a resolution of 1536 x 1024, which is smaller and more portable than the Surface Laptop body.
In addition, the large trackpad and a full-size keyboard with a keystroke of 1.3 mm ensure that the input experience does not shrink.
Surface Laptop Go is available in bright platinum, ice crystal blue and sandstone gold.
Surface Laptop Go can be signed in with Windows Hello and fingerprint recognition power-on buttons, built-in 720p HD camera and matrix remote dual microphone. Plus, Omnisonic speakers and Dolby sound can make a great experience watching video calls and movies.
