Hello guys we are here from Review Planet again with new gadgets here So, Microsoft recently announced their new surface go it’s this tune one device starts at four hundred dollars and I think it’s the cheapest or one of the cheapest computing devices that Microsoft has ever put out and it’s actually, in my opinion, one of the most interesting devices that they’ve put out in quite a while this isn’t it this is a surface pro 4 very similar in idea and design though so what makes this thing special though is the price tag $400 is very affordable and I think a lot of people are looking at it out of interest. As am I so I just took a look at their launch video and I just had a couple Microsoft Surface Go releasing date thoughts on the device as a whole the first thing I noted is that the CPU they can only get in one configuration it’s the 44 15y Pentium Gold came out middle of last year something like that, not a super new chip but it’s relatively powered efficient and has very respectable performance for a fanless chip.

Performance and Hardware
Microsoft Surface Go Full Review and Full Specifications It’s noticeably faster than some of the older surface devices but its main strength is the onboard GPU that HD 615 is quite a big step up from older devices now if you look at the price point of $400 it’s quite attractive there but I feel like that’s a bit of a marketing ploy because that $400 version as cool as it sounds is I don’t think it’s the one to get if you’re going to look at this I would look at the kind of mid-tier model the $550 version here’s why that $400 version has four gigs of RAM. That’s not like a deal-breaker to me four gigs is not great. But it’s not the end of the world it’s the drive speed so they’re using EMMC storage in the base model and that is really slow stuff if you step up to the mid-tier model they’re using NVMe storage and that faster storage has a huge role in just how the device feels overall it’s very interested in this thing I would highly recommend the 8 gig model not again it’s not about Microsoft Surface Go Full Review and Full Specifications the RAM it’s the storage speed.
It’s just NVMe is so much faster that’s the one to get the bezels on this device are a little thick but since it’s a tablet. I’m less bothered by it like when you have a thicker bezel to hold on to it’s just you know kind of serves those like a grip so you don’t have accidental swipes and touches like that the kickstand on the surface go it goes all the way back like the 2017 surface pro so 165 degrees I think that type of functionality Microsoft Surface Go releasing date on a kickstand honestly makes this device so much more versatility. It is obviously depending on the user but if you’re using it for like drawing or writing or anything like that kickstand that folds all the way back is money as for ports on the surface goes. you’re getting a use PC port this time which is really nice you can charge with it you can connect stuff to it display out all that good stuff it’s your standard use PC it doesn’t support Thunderbolt 3 not surprising given what the product is.
Display and Design
Microsoft Surface Go Full Review I don’t even think it would’ve been all that useful considering the CPU like what are you going to do with that Venable 3 port now the included charger still uses the surface connect port it’s not a use PC charger but it’s still nice that does support use PC charging the type cover goes for 100 bucks I think most users will want to pick this up with the device they’ve made the touchpad bigger nice to see that I’ve always found the touch covers to be kind of annoying that it comes as a separate thing like on some of these devices especially on the base model a type cover is going to be 20% the cost of your whole device like Microsoft Surface Go Full Review that’s crazy a hundred bucks of a $500 kit is like that’s very expensive for a keyboard. But it is what it is surface likes to do that now I took a look at some older models just to see what was out there to see if there’s other stuff that you get instead of the surface go just to know I’m just kind of like a comparison of competitors and alternatives and I actually think that the surface go Microsoft Surface Go Full Review is a very it’s kind of in a class of its own if you get anything that’s older like yeah you’re going to get similar processing power and sometimes larger screens and maybe some better functionality.
But the overall product of the surface go has a lot of features that are unique to it that just make it a very respectable and reasonable purchase like the USB C charging the windows hello the updated screen with good pen support it looks like a really cool device the unfortunate thing is that instead of that $400 price point that Microsoft is touting it looks like it’s going to be like 650 to get a really kind of fully functional kit going for like the mid-tier model and Microsoft Surface Go Full Specifications a keyboard so it’s not super cheap. I think it’s respectable I don’t know what do you guys think like is this something that you’re interested in because this can’t be or this it’s unlikely that most people can use this as their primary device certainly not for like the people that watch Microsoft Surface Go price amazon my channel you guys are enthusiasts you care about Tech and you usually have some that’s a little more powerful in this but it’s good as a secondary device. I think and for me personally if I wasn’t making YouTube videos I would actually try to pick up one of these things as my primary device just to see how far could get on it it’s pretty cool okay hope you guys enjoyed this video thumbs Microsoft Surface Go releasing date we liked it subs you loved it to see you guys next time.
