Recently Microsoft has launched its cheapest surface as Surface Go.
Talking about its design and build quality, its top of the line. It is a Surface product and has a magnesium enclosure and has a thin finish. Its sleek design will definitely attract users. The top surface has the new round edges and it actually makes the device a lot more comfortable to hold. It is much more ergonomic with its small details. Bezels around the screen are thick which is not attractive as most of the device is bezel-less at this moment. But it is not noticeable when we actually use it.

There is pen support also and feels relatively lag free. There are two speakers and they actually sound good for this kind of size devices. Excellent stereo separation with the positioning with the decent volume.

The webcam is killer with this $400 surface.
Actually, the best camera compared with other laptops such as the 12 inch MacBook, it is just mind-blowing.

This device is not complete without the $100 keyboard. It is connected magnetically and it is actually awesome. And the trackpad feels good like the other surface product so the tracking is accurate and the gesture works nicely.

While talking about the performance, it is good.
Battery life is also pretty good getting around 7 hours. And to charge it we can either use the included surface connect adapter or you can use the USB C port the gaming performance is also good with the light games such as CS-go, Heroes of the Strome, Rocket League, Overwatch, etc.
