Microsoft has just announced its newest addition to the growing Surface family, the Laptop Go, a very attractively-priced Windows 10 Home laptop clearly positioned to compete against the Chromebooks. Priced at USD550 (CAD760), the sleek Surface Laptop Go comes with a very decent i5-1035G1 10th-Gen Intel processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB eMMC storage and a 12.45-inch touchscreen (1,536 x 1,024 pixels, 148 ppi). It also promises up to 13 hours of use, with fast charging that can juice up the laptop from zero to 80 percent in little over an hour. It has a front-facing 720p webcam, but it doesn’t support facial recognition by Windows Hello. It’s extremely light, just 1.1kg (compared to MacBook Air’s 1.3kg, for example), making it the ideal student laptop. At the top of the range (CAD1,230), you get 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and a fingerprint sensor/power button combo for One Touch sign-in. It comes in three colours: Ice Blue, Sandstone, Platinum. Available as of October 13.
