The Surface Go is the smallest and lightest device in the Microsoft family of Surface tablets. It's an ultra-portable productivity machine that you can take anywhere. The centerpiece is the Intel Pentium Gold processor, a chipset that can handle conventional applications well. It may not be the best when it comes to web-based workflows, but it is certainly a real workhorse and runs smoothly when you focus on a single task.
Whether you're surfing the internet, working, or doing binge watching – everything looks clear and breathtaking with the Surface Go. All thanks to the PixelSense display and the resolution of 1,800 x 1,300 pixels, a solid combination that makes text appear sharp and color-accurate. In fact, it's better than most laptops, especially at this price. The great display is complemented by a decent set of stereo speakers.

If you want something more powerful than the Surface Go, check out the Surface Pro 7. This model supports lightning-fast performance thanks to the new 10th generation Intel Core i3 processor with 4 GB RAM. This dual-core chipset guarantees more than 20% improved multi-core performance as well as battery graphics, quick start and processing of apps and fast multitasking.
This Surface tablet has a wonderful document-friendly 3: 2 PixelSense touchscreen that is in the same league as the iPad Pro. From reading text to browsing photos to binge watching on Netflix and working, it's a stunning display. It looks even better than normal 1080p laptops. There are also stereo speakers that can deliver a loud and rich sound.
– $ 746 was $ 999
The Surface Laptop 2 is a great choice for students or professionals who need a slim and light Windows computer. Microsoft has turned away from a normal laptop experience and improved things even further and equipped it with a touchscreen display. This enables a more convenient interaction in combination with the compatibility with Surface Pen.
When it comes to graphics, this laptop has all the basics covered in aspects like gamma, brightness and color gamut. Whether you're working, viewing photos, watching movies, or playing games, the display looks great and doesn't disappoint. The performance is just as impressive. The eighth generation Intel Core i5 processor and the combination of 8 GB of RAM may not make it the fastest laptop, but it will surely guide you through your workday. Read and write speeds, impressive response times and overall better reliability are also guaranteed thanks to the solid-state drive (SSD).
– $ 800 was $ 999
This high-end ultrabook from Microsoft offers portability and style. It's made from an exceptionally sturdy body weighing 2.83 pounds and a stunning Alcantara fabric that covers the palm rest. The 13.5 touchscreen has a resolution of 2,256 x 1,504 pixels and is equipped with a rather unusual aspect ratio of 3: 2. Word processing, internet surfing and other similar tasks are really a pleasure with its display.
When it comes to firepower, this Surface Laptop 3 model does its job well. It contains the latest generation Intel Core i5 processor with 8 GB RAM and an SSD, which enables extremely reliable performance. It's not the fastest, but it's enough to get you through your daily multitasking and productivity.

The Surface Pro X, which is modern in every respect, is a real dream machine. This 2-in-1 device has a spectacular touchscreen with a thin front panel and 2,880 x 1,920 pixels – a display on which you can work wonderfully or consume media. The case is also the lightest and thinnest we've seen on a Surface device. It sets a new standard in terms of 2-in-1 portability.
In contrast to the rest of the Surface Pro product family, which is equipped with an Intel processor, the Pro X model uses an ARM-based chipset, which was produced together with Qualcomm. According to Microsoft, this chip can deliver a performance that is up to three times faster than that of the Surface Pro 6. Our test team has tested this and has come to the conclusion that it actually matches the most powerful laptops. In combination with the Surface Slim Pen and the Type Cover (both sold separately), the functions can be further expanded.
