Microsoft did not only focus on the Surface Book 3 this afternoon and the brand also took the opportunity to lift the veil on the Surface Go 2 , a hybrid machine designed for the most mobile users.
Once again, the brand did not seek to reinvent the wheel and this new iteration thus takes up the design and format of the previous model.
The Surface Go 2 is therefore in the form of a tablet equipped with a foot capable of taking several positions and a magnetic connector.
Surface Go 2, a hybrid machine geared towards nomadic uses
A lot of uses are also targeted. The Surface Go 2 can be used as a simple tablet, but also as a netbook or as a graphics tablet. It will also support the Surface stylus, to the delight of illustrators and fans of note-taking.
As always with Microsoft, several models will be offered.
The screen will not change and it will still be 10.5 inches diagonally. We remain on a PixelSense panel with a definition in Full HD, a format in 3: 2 and a contrast ratio of 1500: 1.
On the processor side, the firm's choice fell on 8th generation Intel chips and you will have the choice between an Intel Core M3 or an Intel Pentium Gold 4425Y coupled with 4 or 8 GB of RAM. The storage will reach 128 GB for the cheapest model (WiFi or 4G) or 256 GB for the most expensive model (4G).
Several models to choose from
Interestingly, the Surface Go 2 is equipped with a TPM 2.0 chip and it is also Windows Hello compatible. All with a magnesium chassis, support for WiFi 802.11 ax and a USB Type-C connector.
Microsoft has also equipped its tablet with a MicroSDXC card reader and a headphone jack. All for a weight set at 544 grams for the WiFi model or 553 grams for the 4G model.
Expected for May 12, the Surface Go 2 will be offered from € 459 for the WiFi model or from € 829 for the 4G model.
