Microsoft Surface Go review: This shrunken-down Surface is fun and practical, but more expensive than it looks


The Good The Surface Go delivers Microsoft"s great Surface design and accessories at a lower price and in a smaller size.

The Bad The Pentium processor isn"t suited for all tasks. A keyboard cover is a must-have add-on but still sold separately. And you"ll probably want to pay extra for more storage and RAM, too. Battery life is lacking for a go-anywhere PC.

The Bottom Line The new Microsoft Surface Go is the perfect size for casual coffee-shop computing, but getting the full experience quickly drives up the price.
