It empowers people to stay connected, pursue their passions and tackle their side projects, without compromising on the performance or quality they have come to expect from the award-winning Surface family.

The dazzling, custom-built, high-resolution PixelSense display supports Surface Pen, with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, low pen parallax, low latency, and all the precision needed for the greatest of accuracy in note-taking, drawing and computer-aided design. And the custom-calibrated 3:2 display is easy on the eyes while working, and offers vibrantly high contrast when watching videos, creating art, or editing photos.

Surface Go also comes with all the ports needed for a user on the go, including Surface Connect for charging and docking; USB-C 3.1 for data and charging a headphone jack; and a MicroSD card reader for storage expansion – all designed for maximum productivity, whether studying in a library, working on a plane, or sharing content in a boardroom on a 4K monitor.
