Microsoft’s Now Sells a Mid-Range Variant of the Surface Go

Posted on November 7, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft, Microsoft Surface with 25 Comments

Microsoft’s Surface Go is the company’s most affordable Surface to date. That is, of course, considering you don’t want the Type Cover. So far, though, the entry-level version of the device that comes at $399 only came with 64GB eMMC storage.

The other variant, coming in at $549, packed 128GB SSD storage and 8GB RAM. There was another variant of the Surface Go that you probably didn’t hear of, however. Costco was selling a “special” configuration of the Surface Go with 128GB SSD storage and 4GB RAM for $549. The device was only available at Costco to date.

And now, Microsoft has started selling that special configuration officially through the Microsoft Store. Coming in at $499, the device sits right between the entry-level $399 model and the $549 model. For $499, you are getting 128GB of storage, and 4GB RAM. Although that’s $50 cheaper than the variant was at Costco, the 4GB RAM is still a letdown.

The new variant is currently out of stock, though — so keep your eyes wide open if you wanna grab it down the road once it eventually comes back in stock.
