What you need to know
- New videos from Microsoft show off the Surface Laptop Go and updated Surface Pro X.
- Microsoft's Panos Panay leads one of the videos from Microsoft's Building 87.
- The Surface Laptop Go and upgraded Surface Pro X will be available on October 13 and be preordered now.
Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop Go and the upgraded Surface Pro X today. In a new video on the Microsoft Surface channel, Microsoft chief product officer Panos Panay breaks down both new devices. Panay is joined by Microsoft CVP Robin Seiler and VP Pete Kyriacou to introduce the new Surface hardware.
The Surface Laptop Go (opens in new tab) is a smaller and lighter laptop from Microsoft's Surface team that starts at a more affordable $549. The Surface Pro X maintains its form factor, but now has an option with the new SQ2 processor and a faster GPU. The updated Surface Pro X starts at $1,499 (opens in new tab), though the entry-level model with the SQ1 starts at $999.
If you prefer a snappier sizzler video, you're in luck. Microsoft shared sizzlers for both new devices within the longer video with Panay and on their own.
The new Surface devices are available for preorder now.
Looking for something with the same design as the Surface Laptop but easier on the wallet? Look no further with the Surface Laptop Go with its 12.45-inch display, Intel Core i5 processor, aluminum and polycarbonate exterior, omnisonic speakers, and Windows Hello-enabled fingerprint reader.
The thinnest and lightest Surface Pro available – now better
Refreshed for late 2020 is the new Surface Pro X with the SQ2 processor. A faster CPU, more powerful GPU, improved battery life, x64 app emulation in November (Insiders), and now in platinum, there is a lot to like here. You can even now pick multiple colors for the Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen Bundle. Preorder now; get it for October 13th.
This bundle includes the Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard that features Alcantara and the Surface Slim Pen that charges wirelessly within the keyboard. Previously only in Black, you can now get newer colors like Platinum, Ice Blue, and Poppy Red.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the SPX keyboard slightly changed? I thought the previous model didn't allow for the angled position which hides the slot where the pen goes? It almost looked like they tried to emphasize that with how many times in the video the keyboard magnetized up to the tablet at an angle.
It's the same keyboard.
