Are you preordering Microsoft's Surface Go? (poll)
Microsoft's latest Surface, the budget Surface Go, is expected to be released in early August. We want to know if you plan to preorder the device.
The new Surface Go (opens in new tab) is expected to be released on Thursday, August 2. And with a $399 starting price, it's Microsoft's most affordable Surface ever, making it seemingly well-suited for use by kids and in academic settings. But it's certainly not only for those users, and lots of different types of people could benefit for a smaller, more portable and more affordable Surface PC.
At Windows Central, we're super psyched about this one. And many of us have already preordered on. We're seeing a lot of excitement around it from our readers, too, so it seemed like a good time to whip up a poll to see just how many are preordering versus waiting.
- See at Microsoft (opens in new tab)
- See at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Personally, I preordered my Surface Go within minutes of it becoming available on Microsoft's site. I'm a big fan of the two Surface PCs I own, and I've been wanting a smaller version for media consumption and general couch surfing, and the Go looks like a perfect fit, especially for $400.
But what say you? Let us know by voting in the poll below, and then jump on over to our forums to sound off with specifics in a related thread. Ready … set … (Surface) Go!
