    You don't need the annoying muzak in the background.

    I couldn't get Taylor Swift to do the soundtrack for this one. But seriously, apart from the first few seconds, the music is barely audible. I'm suprised anyone even noticed it was there. Which was kind of the goal ?

    Surface Laptop Go 2, Core I5, 8gb\256gb - $799.99

    Surface Laptop 4, AMD, 8gb\256gb - $849.99

    why would anyone purchase a Go? The AMD is just as capable as the Intel for this price point.

      Because some people can't afford that extra $50 and they want a MS Surface.


      Because they prefer Intel over AMD.


      Because they want an MS Surface with a smaller screen and no detachable keyboard.
