Microsoft releases a slew of Surface Go ads trying to convince you to buy the device
Microsoft's marketing department has been very busy. The company released a large number of ads for the new Surface Go tablet. More on that later. The tablet, priced as low as $400 to compete with the 6th generation Apple iPad, will launch on August 2nd. There are two different versions of the slate. The low end model comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of eMMC Storage, priced at $399. You can double the specs to 8GB RAM and 128GB of SSD Storage for $549. Both of these models are Wi-Fi only devices. They are powered by Windows 10 and come with a 10-inch display carrying a 1200 x 1800 resolution. Under the hood is a dual-core Intel Pentium processor.

You can pre-order the Surface Go from the Microsoft Store by clicking on the link found at the bottom of this article. And that brings us to the nine new ads produced by the company for its new Surface device. The spots cover things like how to use Cortana on the tablet, how to use the Surface Pen on the Surface Go, and more. Much more. Each spot runs about 10 to 15 seconds in length, and you probably will see all of them interrupting your favorite programs on television soon. After all, the idea is to plant that seed in your mind that the Surface Go is the tablet that you not only want, but is also the tablet that you need.

Check out all nine ads for the Surface Go, which you will find directly below.

Well well well ... I own 12" Core M laptop for more than an year ... my question is really simple, why to buy something, that is considerebly slower than Core M equiped tablet or notebook? It is better than Surface 3, yet it is still behind current gen. of Atom based CPUs. N5000 or better yet Core M would be much better choise.

I own a slightly bulky 15.6" gaming laptop and for extra portability this tablet would be awesome, I don't always need the 45W SoC of my laptop. Regarding the SoC of this one, I would also prefer it to have the N5000 instead of this Y Pentium but there's gotta be a good reason MS chose this one instead.

The reason is not to compete with Surface 4 with m3 model. There is no good reason behind it, well not a good reason for customers. Cooling is certainly not the issues here, since MS and Acer proven it already on older devices. Nice device, sadly not good enough. I often suffer with Core m3, this device would be another lever of missery. If it would be cheaper I would not mind subpar SOC, but it is not, at least the version that matters - the one with SSD and not the eMMC.

Why suffer go to Ebay and buy a used Surface Pro 3 or Pro 4.with an i5 or i7 CPU. the new Surface GO and the Surface pro M CPU device are device to me that are for basic computer work such as check Email, Surf the web, watch Netflic, read an ebook, write a word document ect but you need more CPU power & Ram to do more powerful things like CAD programs, high level video editing

It's too get across to iphone users that you can be as productive if not more productive using this device over an iPad.

The cheaper version of this doesn't have a 64Gb SSD, it has 64Gb of eMMC storage which isn't as fast.
