Microsoft's Surface Laptop Go brings the build quality and design of the Surface lineup down to a fun form factor that's incredibly portable. The little laptop weighs just 2.45 lbs (1.1 kg) and is a great option for students and people on the go. A deal at Walmart lowers its price by $200, which brings the Surface Laptop Go to its lowest price ever, at least for this specific variant.

Walmart's deal discounts the Surface Laptop Go with an Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.

In his Surface Laptop Go review, our executive editor Daniel Rubino discusses the quality of the device, "The fit and finish of Laptop Go are outstanding. You can even open the display lid with one finger."

He also calls it a "lovely little laptop" and a "zippy fellow" in his review. Most importantly, that zip means that it "[feels] like a real laptop in every way without lag (Edge, though, has a bit of a wobble when web browsing)."

The Surface Laptop Go doesn't have that high of a resolution (1536x1024), but the display is color accurate and can reach nearly 400 nits of brightness. Its display is an example of how the device delivers quality, even if some of its raw specs aren't that high.

The Surface Laptop Go is a nice laptop for students, families that need an extra laptop and don't want to break the bank, and people whose computing needs aren't that heavy. It can handle things like Office, surfing the web, video conferencing, and the rest of the PC basics well.
