These are the best places to pre-order a Surface Go 3

The Surface Go family may not be on the bleeding edge of technology, but it’s a great little tablet/laptop for many users. It’s small and lightweight, even compared to other Surface models, and it still provides enough power for all kinds of everyday tasks. Microsoft recently announced the Surface Go 3, a big step up for the lineup, and you can pre-order it right now.

To be clear, the upgrades in the Surface Go 3 aren’t really mind-blowing, but they’re certainly welcome. It now comes with an Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y or Core i3-10100Y processor, which are naturally faster than their predecessors. According to benchmark scores, you’ll notice a particularly big improvement if you’re using the Pentium Gold models. While a performance upgrade is always expected, it’s especially welcome on affordable devices like this that aren’t incredibly fast in the first place.

Aside from the processor upgrade, the new Surface Go 3 is very similar to previous models. It comes with either 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and you can choose between 64GB of eMMC storage or a 128GB SSD. That’s all par for the course, and it’s still enough for a solid experience on Windows 11.

The form factor is also the same. It comes with a 10.5-inch PixelSense display with a resolution of 1920 x 1280. That means it has a 3:2 aspect ratio, which is still a rarity on devices this affordable. Not only that, you get things like a Full HD webcam, which is also very rare on affordable PCs like this. If you’re an occasional user looking for a solid experience with lightweight use cases, this is still fantastic. If you’re interested in the Surface Go 3, here’s where you can pre-order it.
