Microsoft announced Surface Go for Singapore

Microsoft recently announced the launch of the Surface Go for Singapore on 1st August 2018, it will be available to Singapore starting 28th August 2018 and interested buyers are now able to pre-order the Surface Go.

The Microsoft Surface family of laptops has always caught my attention for its versatility, performance and design. With the introduction of the Surface Go, consumers have another option to choose from the Surface family (Surface Go, Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, Surface Book 2) and the Surface Go option is smallest, lightest and most affordable Surface to date.

Let me share with you key information and details of the Microsoft Surface Go:

Starting at S$618, Surface Go will be available for pre-orders on Microsoft Store, as well as authorised retailers including Acommerce, Best Denki, Challenger, Courts, Elush, Harvey Norman, and Newstead. 

Surface Go will also be available for pre-orders for commercial customers via Authorised Device Resellers including AsiaPac Distribution Pte Ltd, JK Technology Pte Ltd, and UIC Asian Computer Services Pte Ltd. 

Our smallest, lightest, and most affordable Surface yet 

The power and connectivity in a device this small gives you the style and productivity Surface is known for in a more convenient package. At just 522g and 8.3 mm thin, Surface Go packs portable performance into a 10” device. 

Surface Go offers a stunning, custom-built high-resolution PixelSense Display that supports Surface Pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, low latency, and precision for accurate note taking, drawing and computer-aided design. The custom calibrated 3:2 display is soft on your eyes while you’re working and vibrantly high-contrast when you want to watch videos, create art, or edit photos. 

Comforts of a laptop, convenience of a 10” tablet 

Powered by the 7th Generation Intel Pentium Gold Processor 4415Y, the Surface Go features a fanless design, offering up to 9 hours of battery. Surface Go also has the ports consumers need, including Surface Connect for charging and docking; USB-C 3.1 for data, video, and charging; a headphone jack; and a MicroSD card reader for storage expansion. All designed to help you be more productive whether you’re studying in a library, working on a plane, or sharing your content in a boardroom on a 4K monitor. 

The new Surface Go Signature Type Cover is custom-made for Surface Go, integrating design features that give the user the best typing experience possible, with ergonomic key pitch and exceptional key travel. It also has high precision tuning and Windows Precision Trackpad that supports five-point multi-finger gestures, and you can connect the new Surface Mobile Mouse to work the way that you want. 

A built-in kickstand with full friction hinge that extends to 165 degrees helps you stay in your flow from tablet to studio mode, and a Windows Hello camera allows for familiar, quick, and secure sign-in using face recognition. 

“We are excited to be bringing Surface Go to Singapore for customers who are looking for a dynamic, versatile and productive laptop experience,” said Veronica Chiu, Windows and Devices Business Group Lead, Microsoft Singapore. “Whether for the home or on the go, on the front line of a business, or as a versatile tool that will elevate the learning experience, Surface Go offers a premium laptop experience at incredible value.”
