Can Microsoft's Surface Go unseat Apple's iPad?

Microsoft opens flagship Surface store in Taipei

Microsoft’s $399 Surface Go is announced at last

On the inside, there is a Pentium Gold 4415Y processor, and RAM is either 4 GB or 8 GB. As a result, the Surface Go comes with Windows 10, though is locked to "S Mode" out of the box on consumer SKUs, limiting it to use with apps in the Windows Store. A Surface Go Signature Type Cover will set you back another $99, but includes a touchpad so you can keep your mousing habits instead of having to develop gorilla arms stretching out to use the touch screen. The Surface Go features a high resolution PixelSense Display that supports a Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, and low latency. Microsoft also claims that this laptop can last up to 9 hours on a single charge which is pretty reasonable. And second, as a fully-functional Windows 10 laptop, The Surface Go will try to eke some share away from Apple's whole line of MacBook laptops, which starts at $999 for the cheapest MacBook Air.

It's the price tag that will make it more appealing for many people, shaving several hundred dollars off the price of the latest version of the Surface Pro, which starts at $799.

The Surface Go will go up for pre-order from July 10 in the United States, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, and other important markets.

We think that the Surface Go may be one of the most interesting releases this year and can not wait to see how well it stacks up to the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad. Schools purchasing in the commercial channel will have the choice between Windows 10 Home in S Mode or Windows 10 Pro. Here's everything you need to know about the new product, which really seems to be taking aim at the iPad.

Better yet, Microsoft has managed to deliver full-sized keys (now with more pronounced bowled edges) within such a small amount of space, and has included a glass trackpad that's larger in depth than that of the Surface Pro. You'll also get the friction kickstand found on the Surface Pro so it's definitely still firmly within the Surface family of devices.

At launch, it is available in a 4GB RAM / 64GB eMMC SKU for $399, and 8GB RAM / 128GB SSD SKU for $549, with storage expansion possible via microSDXC. As for ports, you'll find Microsoft's proprietary Surface Connector, a USB-C 3.1 port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD slot. An LTE cellular data version will be released later this year, the company said.
