Surface Go 2 is Coming: New Surprising Details about the Design

Microsoft will release another interesting and affordable laptop soon, and by the middle of the current year, we should get a release date for it. The gadget will be an elegant choice for those willing to have an efficient laptop for work like web development or writing articles online. It’s less likely that the Surface Go 2 device can be a good option for gaming.

A report from Zac Bowden over at Windows Central reveals the new details. Firstly, the Surface Go 2 device will feature a larger 10.5-inch display. But the surprises regarding the design don’t stop here: Microsoft Go 2 will have smaller bezels, but it will retain the same overall 9.65″ x 6.90″ x 0.33″ frame.

New resolution

Surface Go 2 will also get a little upgrade for the resolution. It will feature 1920 x 1280, instead of the old 1800 x 1200 (217 PPI). As for the rest of the specs, there are two options:

  • Intel(R) Core(TM) m3-8100Y CPU @ 1.10GHz
  • Intel UHD 615
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • 2C/4T 1.6GHz base 3.4GHz boost
  • Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU 4425Y @ 1.70GHz
  • Intel UHD 615
  • 8GB RAM
  • 128GB SSD
  • 2C/4T 1.7GHz base no boost

Surely there are far better options if you want a laptop for gaming. One interesting aspect regarding the Surface Go 2 laptop is if it will be capable of running Windows 7. Even though the over-a-decade-old operating system is officially dead since January (no updates and no technical support from Microsoft anymore), some people are still using it. SpiceWorks even claims that 79% of organizations still have at least one computer that runs on Windows 7.

Microsoft strongly encourages people to make the upgrade to Windows 10, but it might be forced to allow devices to still run on the older operating system Windows 7 if a lot of people still prefer it.
