Surface Go 2 first look: 3 big upgrades

published on July 17, 2020

So just like everybody else Microsoft has had to cancel their in-person conferences but that doesn't mean that they're canceling new hardware this is the surface go to it is the second iteration of Microsoft's tiny little windows surface tablet with its own

Little kickstand and you know what the original surface go I kind of fell in love with that computer because I love me a tiny computer but it had some problems and Microsoft has done everything that it can I think to

Address those problems or at least the biggest ones and the one that you're going to see right away that they're trying to do better is when you look at the screen the original surface go had huge bezels and the bezels on this one

Are way way smaller because the screen is now 105 inches I think it's nineteen twenty by twelve eighty which means it's three by two which is the right aspect ratio for computers I think anyway but it looks like a good screen the bezels

Aren't quite as small as you can get on like a surface pro X but they're still respectable the last those those were actually kind of like vaguely embarrassing this does not feel cramped anymore I'm very excited about this

Screen the second problem with the original surface go was that it was kind of well slow it had this Intel Pentium Gold processor which did the job mostly but you could really feel it struggle a lot and the base model of this new

Surface go to unfortunately also has an Intel Pentium Gold processor I think it's a 44 25y comes with four gigs of RAM and 64 gigs of storage but it's e MMC storage which is a little bit slow but the combination of all those things

Is how they keep the price down for the base model it starts at 399 you can also get a model with that same processor eight gigs of RAM 128 gig SSD for 529 but yeah if you're gonna spend more money on this computer the one to get is

The one that comes with the new processor option it is an 8 gen core m3 from Intel with eight gigabytes of RAM 100 twenty-eight gigabyte SSD and that costs 629 and if you want for a hundred bucks

More you can get it with LTE although you know on top of that you're also going to need to buy a keyboard however if you already have a surface co you actually won't have to buy a new keyboard because it is the exact same

Size and shape overall as the original surface go so all your keyboards and these are accessories you might have gotten will still work with this surface co2 they even kept the ports the same so there is a surface connector because

Microsoft loves them a surface connector I I don't but maybe their customers do I don't know they kept the surface connector there's also a USB C port and there is a headphone jack hooray and last but not least there is

Expansion for storage in the form of microSD on the back now the front-facing camera is 5 megapixels and you can get a nice 5 megapixel camera in a surface because the whole computer is in the tablet which means that you have more

You know z-axis space there to fit a nicer camera in that of course means it works with Windows hello you would expect that out of a surface so you can login with your face Microsoft says there's also studio microphones for

Better sound and I hope that's true like I said I really did love the original light I don't know it just it felt cute like I like a Fiat 500 car was a metaphor that I use fun to drive but it couldn't go uphill very fast and so I'm

Really interested to see if putting a proper Core M 3 into this machine will mean that it will fare better in terms of performance now the third thing almost forgot but it's actually maybe the most important thing is battery life

Microsoft says that they put a larger battery inside this surface go to which should give it up to 10 hours now Microsoft's 10 hours isn't necessarily real-world Huson might be video rundown or whatever so we got to test it but a

Device like this is meant to be ultra portable it's you know why it's so small it's about the same size as like an iPad pro 11 and so you want it to last a long time on battery because you want to be out in the world with it if you ever get

To go out of the world again so I'm also excited to test to see if the battery life on this thing is any better to these devices are going to be available on may 12 including the LTE edition

Usually that one comes way later so we're gonna have a full review of this up on the verge at some point in the near future if you've got questions about the surface go to please let me know down in the comments and I will do

My best to answer them in the review hey thanks so much for watching you know when you shoot from home by yourself you forget that the bit where you ask for comments is supposed to go in the endcard not the main video but you just

Let it go because you know we're just we're shooting from the hip here I appreciate you thanks for watching
