Seemingly adamant that there must be a Surface to suit every lap, Microsoft has today introduced a new product to its portable computing range. And the Surface Laptop Go might just be the most portable of them all. The laptop’s 12.4in touchscreen marks it is an obvious rival to Apple’s M1 MacBook Air, as well as various thin and light laptops and its full-size keyboard means you don’t have to compromise on useability. Crafted from lightweight metal, the little lappy comes in three colours: Ice blue, Sandstone and Platinum, and includes both USB-C and USB-A ports. Powering it is a 10th Gen Intel i5 Quad-Core processor, with up to 16GB RAM and 256GB of storage, and there’s a built-in 720p webcam, plus Dolby Audio speakers. With 13 hours of battery, the smallest Surface laptop clearly has big ambitions. Pre-orders are open now for a January 22 release date.  The Surface Laptop Go starts with i5/4GB RAM/64GB storage config for ₹63,499.
