Introducing Surface Go! – Perfect for Education

Our lightest, fastest and most affordable Surface 2 in 1 laptop yet!

On July 10th, Microsoft proudly announced the arrival of a new addition to the Surface family, the Surface Go! As Educators, many of us play different roles throughout the day, moving from classroom to classroom to planning engaging lesson at home. A tethered desktop laptop can prevent us from being agile and we want ways to boost productivity and tackle the teacher work load. The Surface team strive to adapt to this dynamic way of working and to strike a balance between performance and versatility of a laptop. We are encouraging our students to work in a variety of ways and that can be possible with the right device! Pioneering a 2:1 model can provide the mobility of a tablet with the performance of a laptop, inspiring new ways of creating and delivering in the classroom.
