Microsoft's Surface Laptop Go is a budget-friendly laptop that brings Surface computing to a lower price point. The little laptop lacks some of the more premium features of the Surface Laptop 4 but left in what's important for a solid experience. It runs on a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor and has a bright display with good color accuracy.

The Surface Laptop Go is already one of the best Windows laptops, but its discounted price makes it even better. Right now, you can pick up the Surface Laptop Go from Best Buy or Microsoft for $550. That price will get you the model with 8GM of RAM and 128GB of storage. Normally, $550 will only get you half of that (4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage). Even the maxed-out version of the Surface Laptop Go with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage costs just $700.

In his Surface Laptop Go review, our executive editor Daniel Rubino said, "After spending the last week with Microsoft's latest laptop, I am convinced Laptop Go is the perfect couch companion — or an ideal notebook for the classroom." He later added, "There's no way to say it other than Surface Laptop Go is a fun and lovely little laptop."

The idea behind the Surface Laptop Go is to get a solid core computing experience without breaking the bank. It has a good trackpad, design, and battery life. Even though its display is only 1536x1024, it's bright and color accurate. The laptop has some nice little touches as well, including a fingerprint reader and Omnisonic speakers. Note that to get the fingerprint reader, you have to buy a model with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage.

The Surface Laptop Go is a good device for students or people who need an affordable PC that's easy to carry around. The high-end model adds quite a bit compared to the more affordable option, and right now, you can pick up the best Surface Laptop Go for $700.
