Surface Go 2, the smallest, most affordable Surface 2-in-1, now with a more brilliant higher-resolution 10.5” “PixelSense" display and even more performance and battery life packed into the same compact form factor.

At just over half a kilogram or 1.2 pounds, Surface Go 2 brings laptop-to-tablet flexibility, that goes anywhere. And its fanless design means the Surface Go 2 is an excellent choice for high dust or sterile working environments.

Surface Go 2 adds an optional Intel 8th generation Core M3 processor, that is 64% faster than Surface Go, as well as an Intel Pentium Gold option.

And the LTE model now works with eSIM and you can manage this through Endpoint Manager.
