Why go with Best Buy?
As previously stated, Best Buy is the best overall retailer to order the upcoming Surface Laptop Go from because you have the option of enrolling in a monthly payment plan, something you can't do through the Microsoft Store. Additionally, Best Buy's plan doesn't have any interest as long as you don't miss a payment, meaning that it won't cost you extra in the long run to pay incrementally.
Of course, if you don't need or want to pay through a long-term plan, there's no reason you should avoid buying from Microsoft directly. Both Microsoft and Best Buy have all colors and configurations available, so when you take the payment plan out of the equation, they're basically identical.
Why get a Surface Laptop Go?
The Surface Laptop Go is one of the more exciting devices Microsoft has brought to us in recent years, as it packs the hardware of a very capable laptop into a small form factor that competes with Microsoft's own Surface Go 2. With a 10th Gen Intel Core i5-1035G1 CPU, Intel UHD graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of SSD storage, this little laptop packs quite a solid punch. In addition to that, the 12.4" PixelSense display looks quite good despite having a modest resolution of 1536x1024. It also comes with studio mics, Dolby Atmos speakers, and a front-facing 720p camera, cementing the device as a great pick for people who have lots of virtual meetings or online classes. There's no Windows Hello facial recognition, but there is a very nice fingerprint reader that instantly signs you in when you use it. Also, the laptop comes with support for Wi-Fi 6, the latest Wi-Fi standard that boosts network speed, efficiency, and stability.
When it comes to the physical design, the Surface Laptop Go is great as well. With both a USB-C and USB-A port, you get some pretty great peripheral connectivity for such a small device. And with a thickness of 0.62" and a weight of 2.45 lbs, the Surface Laptop Go is easily one of the most portable Surface devices Microsoft has ever created. Without a doubt, it's shaping up to be one of the best Microsoft Surface PCs — and come October 13, 2020, you'll be able to get your hands on one.
