Microsoft has announced the latest edition to its Surface line — the Surface Laptop Go 2Successor to what’s been hailed as Microsoft’s most compact and affordable device in its laptop line, the Surface Laptop Go 2 features an 11th Gen Intel i5-1135G7 processor, an improved HD camera, dual studio mics and their “Surface signature premium design.”

“When we first introduced Surface Laptop Go in 2020, the world was navigating profound changes in the way each of us connects both to people and experiences,” said Pete Kyriacou, CVP, Microsoft Devices. 

“The Windows PC became more essential than ever for work, school, play, and social connection. Through innovative hardware and software experiences, our product makers at Surface created something that exceeded expectations and was delightful to use,” he said.

“Whether we were browsing the web, managing tasks across work, school and life, or relaxing with a favourite TV show, Surface Laptop Go brought the premium PC experience that we expect from Surface to an incredible price point. This has always been the purpose of Surface Laptop Go, and the product is only getting better,” said Kyriacou.

Other than a few internal spec bumps, little has changed between the original Laptop Go and its replacement.
