Check out an engineer's tour of the new budget Surface Go
Take a closer look at the design process that went into the Surface Go.
Microsoft this week unveiled the Surface Go, a smaller Surface targeted at the education, enterprise, and budget markets starting at $400 (opens in new tab). But while all of the details are now out in the wild, those looking for a little more info can watch Microsoft dive into of some of the design work that went into the device.
Most of the information in the video covers what has been already announced, from the Pentium processor to RAM and storage configurations. However, Microsoft has included a look at the internal layout of the components, along with some other interesting tidbits. That includes a near-field sensor, which can be used in enterprise cases for reading RFID tags to track inventory and even launching specific apps.
The smaller Surface Go Type Cover even gets a shout-out, including a look at its mechanical keys with 1mm of verticle travel, along with the sizeable trackpad.

to sell. the base Model is too weak for my needs. I would opt for the model with
256 gigs of main memory storage and 8 gigs of Ram. sadly though you have to
pay 200 Dollars for the Pen and Type cover. hmm maybe they will make an
ARM's Version with a built in cell phone sold with a blue tooth headset
Now this would be a radical device
and some people would buy it
