What you need to know

  • The Microsoft Surface Go 3 is now available in matte black.
  • LTE models of the Surface Go 3 are also available through the Microsoft Store.
  • The Surface Go 3 starts at $400, though the most affordable black model on Microsoft's website costs $550.

Microsoft is expanding its Surface lineup just a bit to start off 2022. Earlier today, the company launched the Surface Pro 8 with LTE. Now, Microsoft has released black versions of its Surface Go 3. You can also order the Surface Go 3 with LTE connectivity through the Microsoft Store starting today.

If you'd like to have LTE on your Surface Go 3, it appears that you'll have to purchase one with an Intel Core i3 processor. Microsoft's website doesn't list an LTE option for the Pentium 6500Y model. A Surface Go 3 with an Intel Core i3, LTE, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage costs $730. That configuration is available in matte black or silver, though the silver listing is currently out of stock.

The black options for the Surface Go 3 are reminiscent of the original Surface devices that were released almost ten years ago. Microsoft also has black options for some other PCs, such as the Surface Pro 8 and Surface Pro X.

The Surface Go 3 is one of the best Windows tablets. It's the most portable Surface PC and is a solid option for students or people who need to get light work done on the go.

If you don't like the silver or black options from Microsoft, you can wrap your Surface Go 3 in a skin from dbrand.
