Microsoft launched its ultra-portable Surface Go 3 at its 22 September event, and now the 2-in-1 is officially available to buy in both the UK and US.
With a 10.5in display and detachable keyboard, the Surface Go 3 is the smallest and lightest device that runs on Windows 11 – making it a great choice for students or anyone who wants productivity on the, well, go.
This year, Microsoft revved up the processing power with the addition of an Intel Core i3 chip on the top-end variant. The upgrade should make the device 60% faster than its predecessor (which ran on the Intel Pentium Gold). There's also a 4G version expected soon.
