    I can understand MS is trying to do business for low end market..
    The laptop had the best design at 600-800 price range. But pay the same price we had so many choices…
    It’s 2020. We cannot accept the screen with this low resolution…. It killed my eyes..

    I am pleasantly surprised as I really like the surface laptop Go. I feel like Microsoft missed a home run here with the base model having 4 gb of ram and no fingerprint sensor and then having to go to the next trim at $699 to get the 8 gb ram and fingerprint sensor. Result: ground rule double.


    Design: it is a nice looking device that stands out from the others in its category. The ice blue is attractive while not the most obvious blue still retains a nice look. The plastic underside does not detract from this either.
    Size: It is compact and fairly light.
    Screen: Despite the sub 1080p resolution, the screen is still attractive and bright with accurate colors. The 3:2 aspect ratio also makes this a hit because the screen is taller and easier to review documents, because you have to scroll less than a 16:9 aspect ratio.
    Color options: there are 3 different color options to choose from, options are always good.
    Ports: having usb-c and a is great as well as having the device charge from USB-c along with the mag connector for charging.
    Trackpad: this is on the nicest trackpads I have ever used as my fingers glide across it. Mouse movement is great.
    Price: the base model starts at $550.
    Fingerprint reader: nice and fast logon
    Performance: all models have an i5 processor and I think this is more than fine for everyday users, even the base model will give you good performance.


    Keyboard: it is okay to type on for me and not as good as the pixelbook go keyboard because it has a somewhat mushy feeling when typing.
    Screen: it is nice but still it is under 1080p for a device that cost $550 and up. When was the last time you found a device that was not full hd for $500 or up?
    Sound: I think it sounds decent, not amazing, not a pro or con.
    Base Model: 4 gb really microsoft you could not have just put an extra 4 gigs in and charge $599. Why limit it this way? Also no fingerprint reader in base model as well.
    Battery life: it is in the 7-8 hours territory. Not amazing but not awful either.


    Keyboard: no backlight. This is the biggest con again when is the last time you had a device over $500 with no backlit keyboard. It makes typing in poorly lit rooms more difficult and a no fly zone for those who work in darkness.
    Price: on the highest tier model Microsoft is really trying to upcharge you just for added storage.$899 just highlights this device’s shortcomings even more in that price bracket.

    Wrap up: I looked over a bunch of devices in this class and some not in its class. This is not the quintessential device for me but it is very good. My biggest gripe is the lack of backlit keyboard on a device in this price range. I find the screen is very nice looking but the sub 1080p comes across as tacky also. I feel they could have popped an i3 in the base model and then added the fingerprint sensor. Avoid the $899 model as that is too much to pay for something so compromised.

    Also consider: The Surface laptop 3 is something to consider if you are worried about the compromises being made. It has a backlit keyboard, a full HD+ display and is larger at 13.5 screen display. It does cost more, and also the bezel around the display is larger.

    It was for my daughter, Grade7! It is perfect size and nice design! We are so happy now! The reason that I give 4 stars, there was small dent on top beside the logo! She doesn’t mind, but I do!

    Recently, I bought the 8GB/128GB version of the Surface Laptop Go. It’s been a great purchase so far, but there are some quirks and annoyances sprinkled throughout its greatness. After using ThinkPads for years, the Surface Laptop Go combined with the Surface Dock 2 (and my usual peripherals) may have converted me.

    The positives:

    -Build quality (wonderful, even the plastic bottom cover feels premium)
    -The screen (resolution and DPI are fine, great brightness levels and colors, I much prefer the 3:2 aspect ratio for web browsing and documents aside from ultra-wide spreadsheets)
    -Lightweight and very portable (12.4″ is the perfect form factor for my needs)
    -Works great with the Surface Dock 2 (has replaced my Core i7 7700 desktop)
    -The keyboard is quite nice to type on
    -The trackpad feels great to use (not sure if it’s mylar or glass, but it’s wonderful)
    -The fingerprint sensor is quite nice for easy logins
    -Intel AX201 Wi-Fi card
    -RAM management is quite good on the 8GB models (I’m usually consuming 4-5GB)
    -UEFI/BIOS option to stop battery charging at 50% (perfect for my needs since I keep it connected to the Surface Dock 2 most of the time, this can easily be switched off)
    -No bloatware or junk programs out of the box (it’s like the Microsoft/Windows version of using a Google Pixel phone)
    -I was able to upgrade my Laptop Go to Windows 10 Pro, so now I’m getting the full Windows 10 experience I’m used to
    -Surface devices have decent value retention (even broken older models go for decent prices on auction sites)

    The negatives:

    -Ships with S mode enabled by default (easy to turn this off, but it’s annoying)
    -The keyboard isn’t backlit (not a deal-breaker, but an annoyance in 2020)
    -The fan is loud when it ramps up, but it’s usually fairly quiet (changing power modes helps)
    -There’s no micro SD card slot (would be nice for storing music/movies or local file backups)
    -The 4GB/64GB eMMC model exists
    -Decent but not amazing value for the money (leaves you wanting more features the higher-tier models have)
    -It’s a modern laptop with soldered RAM and a DIY SSD upgrade will probably void the warranty
    -The 16GB RAM model isn’t readily available for consumers
    -It doesn’t come in black (but the Platinum color I have is quite nice)
    -I really miss having a TrackPoint style device on the keyboard

    As you can see, I can think of far more positives than negatives. Most of my negatives are either preferences or problems with modern laptops in general rather than the Laptop Go itself. Although I was drooling over some refurbished ThinkPads before buying the Laptop Go, it was hard to say no to a few of its main positives (mainly the screen, the trackpad, and the 3:2 aspect ratio).

    For its current asking price, I can highly recommend the 8GB/128GB model if you turn off S mode, don’t need a lot of storage space, and don’t plan on playing tons of AAA games on it.

    I received this device on Aug 29th, the warranty of this laptop is supposed to be 1 year, so the warranty period shouldn’t end before Aug 28th, 2022. But while I checked on Microsoft site and found that this device once has been registered on 2020/12/02, its warranty period will end on 2022/02/01. That’s unacceptable. The product we buy should include the device itself and the warranty period, they are combined as a whole, it’s unfair for we customers to pay a total amount but didn’t get a complete product.

    Moreover, the Amazon’s customer service promised to get me an answers on Aug 30th, but yet I received any respond.

    It’s a fine, standard laptop for 2020 that isn’t expensive. In my opinion, WAY better than Asus Chromebooks. I’m a teacher who has to teach virtually during lockdown, so I’m streaming audio and video all day long. I have to say — for a relatively inexpensive laptop, it handles the streaming well. It does get overwhelmed and slow down when I’m in 2 or more Google Classrooms simultaneously and have open multiple windows and 20+ tabs, but I don’t think the laptop is to blame, more the crazy demands of virtual teaching. The camera is a huge upgrade from my 2011 Asus laptop. WARNING: there’s only 1 usb port, so that Anker multi-port plug-in is a MUST. But it’s very cheap compared to what Best Buy tried to sell me ($15 vs. $90!!) and works flawlessly. I bought it here along with the laptop.

    So far I’m satisfied with it. Sometimes the fan would turn on when it’s charging while it’s turned off, kinda annoying, but it doesn’t cause much trouble (yet)…
