Microsoft Surface laptops have always been on the expensive side, except for the Go series. The Windows maker has now launched a new entry-level laptop, the Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2. It comes as the successor to the first generation Microsoft Surface Laptop Go with improved specifications.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 Features

That said, a few specs of the new Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 are similar to its predecessor. For example, the new entry-level laptop has a 12.4-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 3:2. The screen offers a resolution of 1536 x 1024 pixels. It also includes some enhanced features such as a fingerprint sensor built into the power button.

The main upgrade is what’s under the hood. The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 gets its energy from the 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor. More importantly, the new Microsoft Surface laptop runs Windows 11 OS out-of-the-box, unlike the previous models that arrived with Windows 10 in S mode.

In S mode, users could only download and use applications that are available in the Microsoft Store. Aside from the chipset and software upgrades, the new Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 retains many other features from its predecessor. It still includes a single USB type-A, USB type-C and a headphone jack.
