Surface Laptop Go
Looking for something with the same design as the Surface Laptop but easier on the wallet? Look no further with the Surface Laptop Go.
Windows 10 on ARM
Microsoft Surface Pro X
The thinnest and lightest Surface Pro available
Surface Pro X delivers the most exciting design for the Surface Pro yet. While the ARM processor is faster than expected for many casual users, a Surface Pro 7 will be a smarter buy. But for those who need a light, thin, LTE-enabled productivity laptop, the Surface Pro X offers a unique set of features not found anywhere else. It's not a bad PC; it just needs the right owner.

Liking the new Surface Laptop Go however don't see any info whether it has a Backlit Keyboard.
Checked the info on the Microsoft website and don't see anything about it.
This is a must for me!
Can someone explain what this means? I've been buying Surface hardware from Netherlands which has shipping to Bulgaria. What does it mean to have it sold here? Does this mean that I can return it to a local place for warranty or what?
It probably means you also might pay a smaller price for it overall if Bulgaria or Netherlands impose import or export fees respectively. And yes, this should mean local support options.
Nah there are no import/export fees, European Union and all. Local support options would be great although I am pretty sure they will ship a broken device to some support hub abroad at least I'll only have to ship somewhere local.
