Microsoft's Surface Laptop Go is the latest addition to the Surface family. It's a smaller and more budget-friendly way to get a Surface with a traditional form factor. While the Surface Laptop Go starts at $550, that price only gets you 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage. The cheapest model also lacks Windows Hello support. If you're willing to pay more, you can bump up to higher specs with SSD storage. We want to know which variant of the Surface Laptop Go hits your sweet spot.

To provide a bit of context, the Surface Laptop Go aims at a different demographic than some other Surface devices, at least when it comes to the entry variant. The entry model of the Surface Laptop Go is affordable and attractive in education markets where higher specs aren't always as important.

On the other hand, some have expressed disappointment online about the lowest-end version of the Surface Laptop Go existing at all. Those people claim that Microsoft should bump up the minimum specs or remove that SKU entirely.

We want to know which version of the Surface Laptop Go you're interested in. Are you intrigued by the low price point of the entry model? Are you eyeing the mid-range version with a faster SSD and Windows Hello? Maybe you love the form factor and want to max out the specs.

  • No offense but the purpose of this poll is what?
  • The same point as any time they create a poll?
  • Is this SLG G1 upgradable? If yes 8/256 is my pick. And why isn't Microsoft thinking about including LTE/Nano SIM as a standard feature in this thing? That portability should come with it.
  • For me the Go is a nono. The specifications for "a midrange" Surface device in my view doesn't hold its value in the long run, let alone the price. For me the storage and Ram memory is just too little for a 2020 device. If the internal hardware determine this price I think they could have also chosen a perhaps cheaper intell chip from the last 3 years (not intell gold) instead of a 2020 intell chipset. This would allow for more storage and Ram (In my view 8 Gb minimum) and would have made a more compelling device for the price.
  • Ah wait, just on AAWP that go laptop has an up to 256 Gb 8Gb Ram configuration. But also for a 500 dollar range?
