Microsoft launched the Surface Go, a new entry-level tablet which is basically a smaller version of the Surface Pro, at a wallet-friendly price of US$400 (US$500 with the Type Cover keyboard). It features a 10-inch touchscreen with a 1800 x 1200 pixel resolution (217 ppi), an Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor with either 4 GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage or a 128GB SSD. Measuring 24.5 x 17.5 cm, it weighs 520 g and has a battery life of about 9 hours. The Go comes with Windows 10 with S mode enabled, so it only provides access to the Edge browser and to Microsoft Store applications. As with other devices that come with S mode, owners will be able to upgrade to the full version of Windows 10 for free. The Surface Go is available for pre-order and will ship in August.
