Although the price of the “budget” Surface Go is not so low, the tablet turned out to be quite interesting (in many respects due to accessories).

Company Microsoft has expanded its line of branded tablet device called Surface Go. The gadget has become the most affordable among the entire series and has been supported by many branded accessories that turn it into a touchscreen laptop.

The novelty is equipped with the processor of a series of Intel Pentium Gold, built on the architecture of x86. Microsoft did not install a mobile processor (which positively affects power), but the performance of Intel Pentium Gold is clearly below that of Intel Core i5 and i7 installed in the flagship Surface Pro. Realizing this, the manufacturer preinstalled in the device Windows 10 Home with activated S Mode (simplified operating system operating system that supports the use of only applications from the Windows Store). However, the user can, if desired, free to install a full-fledged Windows 10 Home.
