Microsoft recently announced a new cheap tablet that starts at $399, the Surface Go. The new device follows the same design trend found on Surface Pro, but it’s a 10-inch tablet that weighs 1.5 pounds and is powered by an Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor with up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of internal storage.
Although the Surface Go will be available in the United States and Canada on August 2, preorders are open in the Microsoft Store starting July 10.
The Surface Go for consumers comes with Windows 10 Home in S mode, but you can also get the business edition that comes with Windows 10 Pro in S mode.
In addition, you can also preorder Surface Go optional accessories, including the Surface Go Signature Type Cover with Alcantara (burgundy, gray, and cobalt), which cost $129, but you can also get the basic black cover for only $99.
If you’re a mouse person, the device can be paired with the improved Surface Mobile Mouse, which cost $34.99.
Initially, the Surface Go will be available in the following markets, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. Then it’ll be available in Japan, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, and in China with more markets to follow.
