Surface Go 2
The all-new Surface Go 2 retains the lightweight, compact design of the original, but now features a larger 10.5” PixelSense display, improved battery life and a model that is up to 64% faster in performance than before with new Intel 8th Generation Core M options. Surface Go 2 comes equipped with built-in WiFi, plus optional LTE Advanced.
Surface Go 2 also includes Studio Mics, a dual microphone solution to increase voice clarity and reduce background noise for Teams meetings; and a 5MP front-facing camera. The rear-facing camera also has a new Camera application that allows users to easily scan documents and whiteboards – whether it is sharing notes from a meeting or turning in homework.
Paired with Surface Pen, Surface Go 2 allows distance learners and remote workers to stay digital, while unlocking the power of natural ink for things like drawing diagrams, marking up documents or working through math equations. Users can personalise their Surface Go with Type Covers and accessories 3 in a variety of colors, including Platinum, Black, Poppy Red, and Ice Blue.
Surface Book 3
The Surface Book 3 combines the elements of desktop power, versatility of a tablet and the freedom of a light and thin laptop. The laptop-tablet hybrid comes in 13″ or 15″ sizes and has 50 percent increase in performance from its predecessor and up to 17.5 hours of battery life. It features a high-DPI PixelSense Display with the performance of an Intel 10th Generation Core CPU and choice of NVIDIA discrete GPU.
For developers, Surface Book 3 now comes with up to 32GB of RAM and the fastest SSD Microsoft has ever made. For gamers, the Surface Book 3 15″ has a NVidia GeForce GPU, with an option of the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 is also available.
