The Surface Go is the most compact and affordable Surface option. Starting at around $500, the Surface Go has a 10-inch screen size and weighs just over 1 pound, making it highly portable and easy to carry around all day.

The Go is ideally suited for students who need a lightweight device for taking notes in class or occasional users looking for a secondary PC. At AMT Electronics, we service Surface Go models and can help resolve any technical issues to keep your portable device running smoothly.
