The technology bellwether on Tuesday announced the Surface Go, a toned-down version of its signature mobile computing line, yet promises not to compromise on power and performance.

Prices for the Surface Go start at $399 (around £300) but no upper limit has now been stated. They might look roughly the same, but the higher-resolution display, more powerful processor, and lengthier battery life make the Surface Pro an all-around better convertible table than its cheaper, newer counterpart. The new 10-inch tablet is available now for pre-order in the US and several other countries and is priced competitively to the iPad Mini, with a $399 price tag for the 64-GB storage option, and $549 for a 128-GB version.

Finding Microsoft's Surface devices too expensive (they are, in fact), Satya Nadella and Co have just decided to make their signature machine one for all.

As it's essentially geared for running Office, doing some light photo editing and streaming content on Netflix or YouTube, it's not really going to be a complete powerhouse. The Surface Go Signature Type Cover boasts ergonomic key pitch and a five-point multi-touch Windows Precision Touchpad for when you want to use it as a laptop. Then there is the USB-C 3.1 port as well that can also be used to charge the tablet or for transferring data. You'll also get the friction kickstand found on the Surface Pro so it's definitely still firmly within the Surface family of devices. So far, Microsoft hasn't disclosed details pertaining to screen and weight but they'll appear online in due time once pre-orders open up.

Moreover, if you want to use Surface Go as a true laptop alternative, you'll have to fork over an extra $99 at minimum for a custom type cover accessory that adds a keyboard with a built-in trackpad, if not $129 for a keyboard cover with a suede-like "Alcantara" fabric, available in three colors.
