It’s all go with the new Surface

At Academia, we are of the opinion that it is better to launch something new, than copy something else.  This is certainly true when considering the undiminishing demand for modern day technology from a hungry consumer public.

However, we can buck that trend with the notion of a superior upgrade to an already superb piece of hardware – in our latest review, this centres on the new Surface Go from Microsoft.

Outlined as the perfect laptop for all your daily tasks, the improved performance and portability has been designed to offer a fuller and more functional tablet that can cope with taking Windows 10 on the go.

The smallest and lightest surface yet, the new 10” Surface Go starts at just 522 g and is modelled to slip seamlessly into the smartest of bags.  The power and capability to make it the best versatile partner for all adaptable needs in the classroom, travelling and at home, the functional and sleek design make it the perfect device to show off on the go.

Power, which has been the stabled issue of many a portable device in recent years, is high on the agenda – the laptop offers fast, efficient unplugged power running day-to-day software and apps with a 9 hour battery life.

Microsoft fans will rejoice! Surface Go runs Office and comes with Windows 10 in S mode, meaning the transition from desktop to laptop can stream with unnerving ease.  Security is also at the heart of the device, with built-in protection from the award winning Windows Defender, newly modified Parental Controls and the continued world-class support you expect from a Microsoft product.

The full low down:

  • 10” PixelSense Display with 10-point multi-touch and pen input, for ultimate versatility
  • Ultra-light at 1.3lbs so it can move with you wherever the day takes you
  • Beautifully designed including innovative Surface Kickstand to use in Laptop or Studio mode
  • Intel 7th Generation Processor for the perfect balance of performance and mobility
  • Runs full desktop apps, including Office for maximum productivity
  • Compatible Type Cover available in Alcantara fabric and colours
  • Featuring USB-C, Surface Connect and MicroSD card reader
  • Showcases the best of Microsoft in a 10” device
