Surface Go now available for preorder starting at $399

Microsoft this week introduced the latest entry in its Surface line, the Surface Go. Starting at $399, the portable tablet PC is now available for preorder direct from Microsoft.

The Surface Go is targeted squarely at the education and enterprise markets, as well as general consumers looking for a premium budget option for hopping on the Surface bandwagon. Included is a 10-inch 1800x1200 touchscreen, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage. All of this is powered by an Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor at 1.6GHz and Intel HD 615 graphics.

Rounding things out are 5MP and 8MP cameras on the front and rear, respectively. And there's even Windows Hello support for facial recognition. Eventually, an LTE option will be available as well. Shipping estimates are currently set for an August 1 release in the U.S. and August 22 for the UK.

You can go ahead and preorder Surface Go starting at $399 now, but be aware that the Surface Pen and Type Cover are sold separately.
