It will go on sale starting from January 22nd via authorised resellers, retail stores, and online platforms like Amazon and Reliance Digital.

The popular and trending electronic device manufacturing company Microsoft has launched its brand new laptop with the name of Microsoft Surface Laptop Go in the Indian market. This one, like most things Surface, comes with the usual asterisk in that its general affordability is completely subjective.

Although the Surface Laptop Go shines in Platinum, Ice Blue, and Sandstone colors in markets like the USA, you can get it only in Platinum color in India.

While the Surface Laptop 3 starts at Rs 98,999, the Surface Laptop Go starts at Rs 63,499. It is powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel i5 quad-core processor that is coupled with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage space. Microsoft Surface Laptop Go laptop also features an optical fingerprint reader scanner power button that lets users log in with a single touch. The Surface Laptop Go starts at INR 63,499 and goes up to INR 110,999 for the top model.

Additionally, the 8GB RAM, 128GB, and 256GB storage variants are also available for Enterprises but their price is higher than above at ₹76,999 and ₹92,999 respectively.

It has Intel UHD Graphics and eMMC drive storage of 64GB and SSD of 128GB or 256GB variant available. Those prices are still premium compared to more conventional laptops.

Surface Laptop Go comes with a 12.4-inch touchscreen PixelSense Display. The 3:2 aspect ratio is good news for productivity tasks, but that low resolution is surely a bummer. Microsoft has added one USB-C port, one USB-A port, one headphone jack, and the Surface Connect charging port on the connectivity side. Microsoft promises up to 13 hours of battery life with support for Fast Charging on this new laptop. It has a full-size keyboard with a 1.3mm key travel, which Microsoft says offers an accurate and comfortable typing experience. It runs on Windows 10S out of the box, which means you can't install apps from outside the Microsoft Store.
