The newly introduced Microsoft Surface Go is smallest and leanest 2-in-1 Surface series hybrid PC-cum-tablets.

The Surface Go is a decent little device, but it's more suited to competing with the likes of Apple's iPad than it is with the Surface Pro.

We call the Surface Pro the best Windows 2-in-1 you can buy for good reason.

People will have to shell out $99 for the Surface Pen, $34.99 for the Surface Mobile Mouse, $99 for the Surface Go Type Cover, and $129 for the Surface Go Signature Type Cover Alcantara.

Working closely with Intel to optimize power, performance, and battery, the Surface Go is powered by a 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y and offers up to nine hours of battery life.

It's believed that the base $399 Surface Go will also start with a configuration of4GB RAM and 64 GB storage, with the top-level Surface Go hitting 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

Depending on the type of customer you are (consumer, business, school), you can get it with Windows 10 Home or Pro, or the S-flavored education-focused version of Windows, which runs only verified apps from the Microsoft Store within Windows.
