Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2

 

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 is the sequel to the company's 12-inch laptop, featuring an improved processor and a new colour option.

Fantastic value for money ; Extremely portable design ; Smooth performance for basic tasks ; Better battery life than the original

Low-resolution display ; Lack of keyboard backlight ; No fingerprint scanner on base configuration

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 isn’t a big upgrade on its predecessor, but its dinky dimensions, improved performance and longer battery life ensure this remains one of the best value Windows laptops currently available. Just be aware that its...

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 review: a lightweight laptop for students

 

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 is a compact laptop for getting work done wherever you need to go

Compact and portable ; 12.4-inch touchscreen ; Effective 720p webcam

Weak battery life ; Average performance

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 is a great choice for anyone who needs a reliable, compact and portable laptop to use day-to-day. Students, in particular, will get on well with it even if it's not quite powerful enough for some more demanding tasks.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 review: portable first

 

It's a refreshed lightweight Surface - and it's welcome news because the Surface charm is totally intact in the Go 2

Confident, elegant design ; Light and slim ; Top-spec model performs well

Battery Saver mode is a must for light all-day use ; Spec upgrades are pricey, entry-level models have issues ; Non-backlit, slightly cut down keyboard

A delightful ultra-portable laptop more powerful than its predecessor and much cheaper than the Surface Laptop 4, but avoid the base model if you plan on doing any serious work.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 review: Pound for pound, the best budget laptop you can buy

 

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 combines a low price with great build quality and supreme usability

Beautifully made ; Lightweight and portable ; Lovely touchscreen

4GB of RAM in cheapest model ; No keyboard backlight

The Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 is a great little machine at a highly tempting price. It’s powerful enough to be your main machine, small and light enough to carry around in a bag all day, has a great screen and it’s superbly well made.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 review

 

The second-gen Laptop Go is a compelling compact computer, but you'll want to avoid the cheapest model and it tends to run hot.

Decent performance ; Great keyboard ; Solid battery life ; Thin and light

Prone to overheating ; Slow charging ; Still no backlit keys

As a compact, affordable device, compromises on the Surface Laptop Go 2 are inevitable. But the core laptop experience remains impressive, provided you don’t choose the entry-level model.

Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 Review: The Tricky Math of Budget Laptop Buying

 

A new take on Microsoft's cheaper Surface acknowledges the challenge of building budget laptops in 2022.

Premium-feeling design ; Excellent keyboard, touchpad and fingerprint reader ; Tall 3:2 aspect ratio display

Only 4GB and 8GB RAM options ; Only 128GB or 256GB storage options ; The entry-level model is a non-starter

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go 2 arrives with faster, more powerful innards

 

A new Intel processor, Windows 11, and (thankfully) more storage
