Microsoft Surface Go 2 review

The Surface product line was Microsoft’s way of showing other manufacturers how to optimise Windows for portable computing, and the Microsoft Surface Go 2 model was the thinnest, lightest and most affordable model in the range. It’s getting harder to find now, though, having been replaced by newer (and much more expensive) models.

It’s essentially a 10-inch mid-range tablet designed to work well with keyboard and mouse, and running the full version of windows so all your favourite apps work properly right out of the box.

There’s business class processing power thanks to the PC-type Intel Pentium processor and it has a proper 128GB SSD drive providing more robust storage than most tablets. The entire body shell is lightweight aluminium, not plastic, and the screen has tough Gorilla Glass 3 to shrug off bumps and scrapes.

The Microsoft Surface Go 2 has a full service USB-C port for adding drives and other periphersals, made easier because it running proper Windows 10. Add Microsoft’s magnetically attached  keyboard and lightweight mouse and you’ve got a powerful laptop replacement.

10.5″ display, 4GB RAM, 5MP front / 8MP rear cameras, 64/128GB SSD storage, wifi/BT 5,USB-C port, stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos, 10 hours battery claimed, 245x175x8mm, 544g, R10,000
