Introducing the newest laptop in Microsoft’s lightweight travel based computers, the Surface Laptop Go 2, the next evolution in the affordable Surface laptop series.
The latest and greatest in Microsoft’s incredibly compact laptop series, the Surface Laptop Go 2, has had the curtain pulled back from it, and it seems to be a massive upgrade when compared to the previous entry. One of the major ways this is possible is through the pre-loaded Windows 11 OS. The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go only had Windows 10, although an upgrade was possible though a download after the computer was set up.
Along with the upgrade to the faster Windows 11, the Surface Laptop Go 2 has managed to keep the touchscreen, with a 12.4″ Pixelsense, and a comfortable enough keyboard as also an improvement from even the tablet series. But that’s not all that’s under the hood of the exciting new laptop.
