Top 5 Reasons why the Surface Go is your best Tablet Choice

Microsoft is on the cusp of releasing their newest tablet – the Surface Go. With all the capabilities of a laptop, this new tablet is more portable and affordable but in a sleeker package. With the abundance of choices of tablets that are on the market, here are five reasons why the Surface Go is the best choice for you:

1) Portability

The new Surface Go is the smallest and lightest tablet that Microsoft has ever produced. It has a stunning 10-inch touchscreen which means it`s still highly functional without being cumbersome. Shockingly, the tablet weighs only 1.15 lbs! It can easily fit into any mid-sized purse, backpack or tote bag and won`t make you feel like you`re carrying around a brick.

2) Battery Life

Not only is the weight imperceptible, making it a breeze to carry around but the battery life of the new Surface Go can last for the entirely of the average work day. Microsoft conducted tests in June 2018 where they ran local video playback on a fully charged Surface Go and it lasted for 9 hours. This makes the tablet even more convenient because it means you won`t have to worry about hauling the charger with you.

3) Say ‘Cheese’

If you`re into photography or video chatting, the new Surface Go is the tablet for you. It not only has a 5.0 megapixel front-facing camera with 1080p Skype HD video but also a 8.0 megapixel rear-facing autofocus camera with 1080p HD video. For a ten-inch tablet, this packs a lot of punch. Additionally, Windows is releasing a new Photos app for the Surface Go meaning you’ll be able to enhance, share and organize all the incredible photos you take.

4) Accessories

A new tablet means new accessories. If you want to switch it up from using the ten-inch touch screen, you have an exciting new option with the new, wireless Surface Mobile Mouse that will connect with your tech using Bluetooth. Another appealing feature is that it works on almost any surface that isn`t glass or mirrored. This means you can say ‘sayonara’ to tangled chords and bulky mouse pads.

5) Customization

The new Surface Go and it`s matching accessories comes in the following four colours: cobalt blue, black, platinum and burgundy. You can mix and match the colours of the accompanying keyboard, pen or mouse with your tablet or keep it consistent. Either way, the options allow you to personalize your tablet and make it your own.
