The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go is one of the standouts in the entire Surface lineup with the ultra-approachable price, excellent build quality, and gorgeous display. This laptop redefines as budget laptops need to be.  Microsoft Surface devices like the Surface Laptop Go are traditionally super high end laptops and tablets, which are aimed at providing the best Windows 10 experience. However starting with the Surface Go back in 2018, Microsoft has started targeting students and everyday users and this is been the segment where arguably Surface is head and shoulders above anything else on the market. You will get The 12.4-inch laptop is packed with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. That’s definitely not a high-end spec, but considering the low asking price, the gorgeous display, and build quality on offer, the Surface Laptop Go can be far better than any other laptop you’re going to find at this price range.

The Surface Laptop Go being adorable little laptop is thin and light which  measures just 0.62 inches thick and 2.45 lb, respectively. This laptop is an absolute dream to be carried around when you’re commuting or traveling between classes.Despite the bottom of the laptop being plastic, the keyboard deck and display are made of solid aluminum,  resulting in a premium-feeling device with the solid display.

Colors and Style:

The Surface Laptop Go has an attractive Ice Blue finish also comes in a Sandstone finish,  with the classic Platinum color option that pretty much every other Surface device can come with.


We have the highest-end Surface Laptop Go here, it tempera expectations when it comes to raw performance. All it has  is an Intel Core i5-1035G1, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. That can definitely not be a benchmark dominator. This processor is just a single step above a Core i3 chip, and having one of the weakest integrated GPUs in the Ice Lake lineup,  this laptop can fall on its face while  doing any kind of graphics workload. Basically, You can’t  expect to do much gaming or video editing on this thing, because this laptop doesn’t deem fit to handle that kind of workload.

Battery Life:

With just an Intel Core i5 processor, no backlit keyboard and a 1,024p display, the Surface Laptop Go needs to have some pretty tremendous battery life. . In the PCMark 10 battery test, the laptop has lasted a whopping 11 hours and 15 minutes. That can be impressive.  And, in local video playback test, the laptop has lasted 8 hours and 9 minutes, . Microsoft has claimed that the Surface Laptop Go lasts up to 13 hours, so it falls a bit short there.
