New Surface Go variant discovered at Costco

New Surface Go variant discovered at Costco
Costco is a membership warehouse club that sells everyday items in bulk. But don't worry, when it comes to mobile devices you don't have to pick up that 12-pack of tablets or grab that box with three dozen smartphones. Actually, it turns out that Costco is apparently selling a unannounced version of Microsoft's new Surface Go tablet. The device, now available for pre-orders, will be launched on August 2.

This morning, when we passed along nine new ads for the Surface Go that were produced by Microsoft, we told you about the two versions of the Wi-Fi only slate that are offered in the Microsoft Store:

  • 4GB RAM 64GB eMMC Storage-$399.
  • 8GB RAM 128GB SSD Storage-$549.
But it seems that Costco has a version with 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD Storage for the same $549 as the high-end model sold by the Microsoft Store. We can hear you wondering why anyone would pay Costco $549 for a version of the Surface Go with half the amount of RAM than you can get for the same price from the Microsoft Store. That's because the Costco variant includes a black Signature Type Cover, valued at $99.

While Costco has confirmed the specs on this version of the Surface Go, it can't say whether or not it is exclusive to the membership warehouse club. Nonetheless, if you're interested in this third Surface Go option, click on the sourcelink below.

Those bezels just kill it for me. I am a huge fan of the Surface Pro and would have bought a smaller Surface Go, but really, I can't go back to 5 years ago. This device is kind of an insult to Microsoft's customers who are accustomed to cutting-edge stuff and those bezels are anything but. This device should have had at least 0.5 inches of extra diagonal size, maybe even 1 inch more on the same form factor.

for a laptop I would agree with you... but for a tablet, small bezels would be form over function, and I disagree there... I have the Surface Book and my mother the Surface Pro 3, and the "big bezels" are barely enough to use it properly as a tablet.... Now, if I wanted a full-time laptop I would be definitely on board of having something like the Huawei MateBook X Pro with the smallest bezels ever on such device

Ooh nice. I hope Best Buy has the same thing up their sleeve too.
