Microsoft is launching the new Surface Laptop Go and updating the Surface Pro X, to give everyone the opportunity to work and learn at their best, whether at home, in the office or at school. The Surface Laptop Go will include popular features from the Surface Laptop, but in a smaller and more affordable design. 

Pete Kyriacou, vice president of Microsoft devices, says that the Surface Laptop Go “delivers the perfect balance of style, performance and battery life in the lightest, most affordable Surface laptop yet”. 

It features a 12.4-inch PixelSense touchscreen display, large precision trackpad and a full-size keyboard. Select models also include a Fingerprint Power Button with One Touch sign-in through Windows Hello, for improved levels of security. The laptop is powered by Intel’s 10th Generation i5 Quad-Core processor with up to 256 gigabytes of storage and offers to 13 hours of battery life. 

“For families, students and businesses looking for a new device to add to their households or organisations, Surface Laptop Go offers a premium Surface look and feel at an amazing value,” said Kyriacou. 

Microsoft is also updating the Surface Pro X, which was launched in October 2019. 

“Surface Pro X is getting even better with a new configuration that includes our next-generation custom processor and a new Platinum finish, along with new app experiences, resulting in longer battery life and increased performance across all Surface Pro X devices,” said Kyriacou. “Surface Pro X is the thinnest and most connected 2:1 we’ve ever shipped and we’re excited to deliver these new experiences at a time when connectivity has never been more top of mind.” 

The new Surface Laptop Go and Surface Pro X configurations are available for pre-order today on the Microsoft Surface website and will be available to purchase from 13 October.
