Microsoft debuts the 12-inch Surface Laptop Go, for an affordable $549

Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop Go finally looks like the Surface that everyone can buy. Announced Thursday, it’s a smaller 12.5-inch notebook PC that retains the high points of the Surface lineup, at an accessible $549 price. Microsoft begins selling it October 13.

Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop Go fits within the niche between the 10.5-inch Surface Go 2 tablet, and the 13-inch versions of the Surface Laptop 3. Inside lies a 10th-gen Core chip, though Microsoft has made some compromises, too: a return to Windows 10 S and a display that doesn’t quite reach 1080p resolution.

We haven’t seen this product in person yet, but we already have a lot of information about it. Keep reading to learn more about this affordable Surface.

I wonder all the time if we are missing a generation of students who had the potential to change their lives through a college education, but they happened to hit college at a time when we didnt have the kind of welcoming, person-to-person, face-to-face embrace thats been so important and keeps so many students on campus.

How do you drive down costs in higher education?
