Microsoft has released a new version of the Surface Go in the USA without prior notice. You are now able to get a Surface Go with 4 GB RAM and a 128 GB SSD for US$499.

With the Surface Go, Microsoft has extended its Surface product family with a low-cost tablet, which is particularly popular among students. Originally Micrsoft released 2 versions of the Surface Go. One with 8 GB RAM and a 128 GB SSD, while the second version came with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB eMMC. The second version suffered especially from the eMMC memory, which is only half the size and much slower than the SSD in the more expensive model.

Now Microsoft has brought a new configuration onto the market in the USA that fits exactly between the two old models. It has 4 GB RAM, but comes with a larger and faster 128 GB SSD. Microsoft charges 499 US dollars for this version. However, pen and type cover are usually added here, which combined cost another 230 dollars extra.

This new model is not yet available in Europe. However, it can be expected that this will change shortly.

With its Surface devices Microsoft is aiming at students and young people in general. This market was previously dominated by Apple and its devices. Now however Microsoft Surface devices can often be seen in various lecture theatres and classrooms, while Microsoft has slowly but surely increased its sales and profits with these devices.

Since I got my first PC as a gift when I was 8 years old (at that time still with an AMD Athlon single core processor) and since I took this device apart, the technology has never let me go. So it came that I immersed myself more and more into the world of computer technology at a young age. When I came across Notebookcheck for the first time in 2015, I was thrilled by the scope of this site. Now, since my successful application in 2016, I am working as a freelancer for Notebookcheck as a news and hardware editor.
