Introducing Surface Go – the ultimate business tool

Surface Go is making headlines for its versatility, portability and affordability. Ideal for the modern mobile workforce, this lightweight device is designed to foster collaboration, creativity and productivity on the go. Let’s take a closer look at the newest member of the Surface family and explore the benefits and features that make it the preferred device for the modern business.

A highly mobile device

Mobility is key for any organisation looking to foster a culture of communication, collaboration, and productivity. Dubbed the smallest, lightest Surface yet, the Surface Go instantly adapts and adjusts for home, travel, and everyday tasks. Coming in at just 0.5kg you can say goodbye to heavy laptop bags. One reviewer from The Verge even noted that it was so light you will need to ‘check to make sure it’s actually in your bag when you leave the house’.

Beyond commuting, the lightweight portability makes for a great travel companion truly enabling the Anywhere Workplace.

Portable power

A lightweight device is great for mobility, but what about grunt? Surface Go steps it up here too. For everyday productivity, it comes with a fast Intel® Pentium® Gold Processor, up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, and an impressive nine hours of battery life. The Sydney Morning Herald calls it ‘a productivity machine at heart’.

Together with Microsoft 365, Surface Go is designed to truly enable and empower your workforce. Microsoft Office, Windows 10 Pro, Mobility and Security are part of the complete package. Finally, the five megapixel HD front-facing and rear auto-focus eight megapixel HD camera are ideal for high definition Skype video conferencing.

A hybrid tablet-laptop

Surface Go gives users laptop performance, tablet portability, and a stunning touchscreen powered by Windows 10. This versatility means it can adapt to the way you work, from a traditional laptop, to a drawing surface for creative minds, or for giving a presentation.

• Laptop Mode: Attach the Surface mouse and keyboard for ultimate productivity.
• Tablet Mode: Detach the keyboard and the Surface Go becomes a tablet you can touch, view and write on, with a high-resolution PixelSense™ display.
• Studio Mode: Put the final touches on a group presentation by tilting the screen for writing and drawing with the Surface Pen.
Surface Go in three modes
Surface Go has all of the peripheral connections you’d expect with USB-C ports. You don’t need to compromise on productivity either, with the same applications you use every day, on a stunning 10” touchscreen powered by Windows 10.

From a security perspective, Surface Go features built-in protection you can count on including Microsoft-verified security, Windows Defender, and Microsoft’s world-class support.

Affordable price, attractive ROI

For businesses looking for serious bang for buck, the Surface Go represents an affordable price point for device fleets with models starting at $5991. Perhaps Samuel Gibbs at The Guardian put it best when he said that Surface Go demonstrates that ‘budget PCs don’t have to suck’. In fact, Surface Go represents the next-generation of mobile devices made for business – hybrid, powerful and ultra-affordable.

Microsoft 365 can increase the value of your Surface Go even further. A recent Forrester study examined the ROI businesses can realise by implementing Microsoft 365 Enterprise on Microsoft Surface devices2. They found that when deployed together, companies can see an ROI of 112% – 11% more than Microsoft 365 on other devices2.
