The midrange Surface Go is now available in Microsoft’s storeNovember 6, 2018
Microsoft’s tiny laptop-tablet hybrid Surface Go originally came in two variants: a 4GB RAM, 64GB SSD budget model for $399 and an 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD model for $549. Then in July, Costco began selling a $549 bundle that included a Surface Go with 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, and the Surface Type Cover (which separately, would cost $99). Now the exclusive period on the Costco model is over, and the 4GB / 128GB variant has made its way to the Microsoft Store for $499. Unfortunately, it’s currently out of stock but a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that the company is working to restock the model.
At $499 for just the laptop, though, the Microsoft deal isn’t as good of a deal as the Costco bundle, which includes the Surface Type Cover. It’s also only $50 more for the 8GB / 128GB variant, which has double the RAM. Think this one over carefully before buying.
