Design

Surface Go weighs 0.52kg and looks just the same like Surface Pro. This shrunken Surface Pro version is truly excellent in its design- hands down.

Moreover, the legendary hinges are back which can bend the device nearly up to 180 degrees which will help the users treating it like a tablet for drawing and taking notes.

Microsoft Surface Go packs a USB-C port and microSD card reader too. Its competitor latest iPad still lacks that. Coming to the keyboard part, Type Cover, Surface Go keeps the usual keys with less spacing and also includes a glass trackpad too. So, overall Type Cover is as crisp as before but only smaller than Surface Pro version.

As the key spacing gets less, you might feel very difficult to type. But, if you have tight writing experience, you might love it.
