Microsoft Surface Laptop Go Review | Best Ultraportable Student Laptop?
Reviewing Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go, a more compact ultraportable Windows laptop that’s well suited to students and everyday users on a budget. It’s a lot more affordable than the regular Surface Laptop, but is this Go version among the best notebooks for portability in 2021?
I’ve been testing Microsoft’s new thin and light laptop for the past week, using it as my full-time machine. And for everyday use, including web browsing, media streaming and other simple tasks, it’s great. The keyboard is brilliant, comfortable to use and ideal for touch typing – although the lack of backlighting is an issue.
Likewise, the Surface Laptop Go’s compact screen produces respectable contrast and accurate colours. Audio is respectable too, with built-in Dolby speakers. Of course, as this is one of the most dinky laptops around, Microsoft hasn’t found much room for ports. And performance is also limited, so forget about proper gaming, video editing or anything taxing.
Still, for students on a budget and everyday users, the Microsoft Surface Laptop Go is one of the best options right now if you prioritise portability.
