Microsoft Surface Go 2 and Surface Book 3 owners have some new options to protect their new hardware. UAG recently announced several new cases for Microsoft's newest Surface devices. Surface Go 2 owners can choose between the Outback, Metropolis, Plasma, Plyo, and Scout cases and Surface Book 3 owners can pick up a Plasma case. The new cases start at $45 and go up to $90 depending on the style you choose.
The Plasma Series features translucent back panels that let you show off the metal finish of your Surface device. The Surface Book Plasma case (opens in new tab) adds protection around both the detachable screen and the keyboard base. It also adds a bit of lift to the back of the device when sitting on a desk or table, improving the typing angle of the Surface Book. The Plasma case works with the Surface Book, Surface Book 2, and Surface Book 3.
The Surface Go 2 Plasma case (opens in new tab) covers the device's built-in kickstand but adds its own so you can still use the device at different angles. It works with the Surface Go 2 Type Cover and still allows you to access the device's ports. The Surface Go 2 Plasma case includes a shoulder strap and hand strap.
The Plyo Series case for the Surface Go 2 (opens in new tab) also has a translucent back, but it doesn't have the hand and shoulder straps of the Plasma Series. As a result, it appears clean and minimalist. It also has its own kickstand and allows access to the Surface Go 2's ports.
The Scout Series case (opens in new tab) is the most minimal in the new lineup. UAG states that it's built with "feather-light construction" but that it has an impact resistant core.
This case adds protection to both the detachable screen and base of the Surface Book 3. It also works with older Surface Book models.
This case adds a hand strap and shoulder strap to the Surface Go 2. While it blocks the device's built-in kickstand, it adds its own.
This translucent case has a slot for the Surface Pen and is light while remaining impact resistant.
This rugged case adds a hand strap and a slot for your Surface Pen to the Surface Go 2.
You can add rugged protection to your Surface Go 2 with this case without giving up a kickstand.
