Surface Laptop Go review: Microsoft offers a good low-cost PC

The Floor portable computer Go is Microsoft’s second effort on the cheap Floor, and it scores higher than the Floor Go pill. Nevertheless, this is still a compromise study. We have used strategic cuts to maintain the price advantage of Chromebooks, but they are to a large extent a good choice-even for TV shows below 1080p and Home windows 10 in S mode. Will not let us down. Although the Floor Laptop Go lacks the direct expansion of some rival laptops, it can provide a stable price range in any other case.
However, be careful when choosing shopping. We don’t recommend a minimum configuration of $549 for the floor laptop Go, but the mid-$699 option (we didn’t check) seems to be the best option. For the 12.5-inch floor-standing laptop Go evaluation unit priced at $899, the Bob we checked was as high as the “price range” grade, even though it showcased this new product in the best possible way.
This photo highlights the visually eye-catching of the new Ice Blue end: with the right softness, the chassis can look both metallic and blue.
On October 13th, all the popular trends of Go laptops will be promoted. Microsoft provides overlapping configurations of Go laptops for shoppers, schools and businesses. Enterprise Fashion has improved the OS to Home Windows 10 Professional, and (in supported markets) provides a $100 warranty service with fast machine replacement capabilities. Finally, Microsoft’s education channel provides an additional mannequin, which has not been confirmed here.
The starting price of $549 is interesting, but the basic Core i5/4GB RAM/64GB configuration should most likely be handed over in search of a more efficient option. The $699 Core i5 / 8GB RAM / 128GB SSD (we haven’t checked) seems to provide the most valuable configuration of all floor laptop Go configurations, especially when paired with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage.
Considering that Microsoft’s price is $200 (!), plus 128GB of additional storage space, this is much more expensive than our evaluation department. Unlike Floor Professional X or Floor Laptop 3, SSD does not seem to be user-accessible, so it cannot be upgraded.
The floor-standing laptop Go is located in the three circles of the 15-inch floor-standing laptop. My young son uses a Chromebook, so where is the position marked “Foot Laptop” on the floor higher than the table?
Our floor-to-ceiling laptop Go evaluation unit is a brand new Ice Blue configuration, which looks much less blue than Microsoft’s image suggests. The fact is that the appearance of the chassis is actually like a sandstone shadow under a suitable softener, but the keyboard surface is painted with a darker blue paint. The cover is made of anodized aluminum, but the keyboard panel and base are made of plastic resin, containing 40% glass fiber and 30% post-consumer resin. All of these are aimed at reducing weight while maintaining rigidity.
If something goes wrong, Microsoft will use a special coating on the plastic resin of the keyboard to give it a special feel. (Slightly increased.) The inclination angle of the portable computer Go is roughly the same as that of the floor-standing portable computer opposite, or a horizontal distance of 50 degrees from the horizontal. It weighs 2.45 kg and feels soft and comfortable.
The port structure of the floor laptop Go is not surprising: there is a floor connector port on the appropriate side of the laptop…
The floor-standing laptop Go doesn’t have to worry about spinning the fan. Even in a quiet room, it’s unnoticeable, albeit noticeable. Laptops on different floors inhale air, and then exhaust the air through a hidden exhaust port in the hinge. Microsoft has adjusted this to hide the consumption and exhaust gas in the hinge. I am in favor of brutalism-who cares what the underside of the laptop looks like? -But Microsoft may be worried about crumbs or mud. The portable computer Go will not hiss, but it will keep the heat for a long time.
One flaw that Microsoft may want to check: Microsoft used a brand new 39W charger for the floor-to-ceiling laptop Go, and the charger used the floor-to-ceiling connector to price the laptop earlier. On my evaluation unit, the connection is by no means free, and there seems to be no debris in the floor connector slots. Nevertheless, the charger usually, even if it is stable, does not cost as long as it is inserted delicately. (Thank you very much, the connector itself has a charging LED to let you know one thing.)
I reported the problem to Microsoft, then separated the chargers and used an older floor-standing charger as a replacement immediately after the benchmark test was completed. You may also need to pay for the floor laptop, either directly through the USB-C port or through a hub.
The floor laptop Go has two special options with different Microsoft Surfaces and laptops: a brand new fingerprint reader and the low resolution display of the floor laptop Go. Let us look at each.
Microsoft helped introduce biometric technology with its Home Windows Hi (especially its excellent deep digital camera), which might recognize you and unlock your PC immediately. Some competitor laptops have chosen Hi-certified fingerprint readers as alternatives. The wide circular fingerprint reader hidden under the function buttons (like Huawei Matebook X Professional) can also be placed in Other locations of the machine.
If the floor-standing laptop Go is locked, the LED ring will emit a soft light to tell you if your finger touches the ground. Maybe Microsoft’s Floor engineer got the prompt from Flight Simulator?
The floor-standing laptop Go combines 2 and a fingerprint reader, hidden in a rectangular energy button. When the portable computer is locked, a bright LED ring appears on the function buttons to illuminate the touchpad. The reader works very efficiently, as fast and correct as a newly calibrated depth digital camera. It even requires me to adjust my fingers when they are not aligned properly. The fingerprint reader will store your fingerprint for a long time, you can press the function button together with your finger to remove it, and once the Floor Laptop Computer Go completes its quick start cycle, you will also be logged in immediately.
Fingerprint readers will accumulate some disorganized phenomena over time, just like the depth camera cannot recognize facial hair adjustments after I unplug it from the shelf. Once, the reader did not allow me to enter until I wiped my fingers. However, Microsoft’s fingerprint experiment may become a wise choice.
In the unique report on the floor-standing laptop Go, we immediately knew that its display decision was below the 1080p threshold, which is an acceptable threshold for laptops with 14-inch or wider displays. The portable computer Go has a smaller display than this one, so we question whether its decision of 1536×1024 (148 ppi) looks bad.
The answer is yes…no. There is no doubt that there is insufficient expertise in 720p portable computers, but 11280×1024 (1,572,864 entire pixels) is closer to 1920×1080 (2,073,600 pixels) than 1280×720 (921,600 pixels). Also consider that the pixel-per-inch dependency of the floor laptop Go corresponds to the price range of a 15-inch 1080p pocketbook, similar to the Asus VivoBook.
In this part, you will see photos of the floor laptop Go taken with a Samsung Galaxy S20+ digital camera in the following four modes: three 64MP modes. These photos were taken at a distance of 5 inches, well below the typical viewing distance of about two toes. Due to the completely different performance size and zoom settings, the part of the display screen shot by the digital camera cannot be completely matched. Nonetheless, this can help people understand what it feels like on the Go laptop.
We took high-resolution pictures at a set distance of 5 inches on a floor-standing laptop to provide some evidence to prove its display effect and visual comparison. (Ignore color anomalies and ripples because they will not appear in the real world.) We used Microsoft’s beneficial zoom settings. Click on the picture to zoom in on other elements.
Although my eyes cannot distinguish a person’s pixels, there is a clear feeling that you are looking at a specific man-made part of the cloud, such as fog. The decision to reduce hardly contradicts the smooth curve of the anti-aliased font, exposing the jagged edges. The downgrade is most obvious for those who rate the show as a landed laptop or landed e-book.
Nonetheless, the floor portable computer Go’s decision was turned off enough to reach 1080p so that the change would never become annoying, especially when interacting with text content. These flaws become more noticeable when you start to invest more pixels in the show (such as high-resolution pictures or 1080p videos). In part, this may be colorful and vibrant as a result of the floor show; it is color calibrated on the manufacturing unit. Our 4K/60-fps YouTube inspection video was considered good-although due to the smaller Go size and lower resolution of the Floor Laptop, YouTube only sent a 1536×864 viewport downward.
The strange thing is that when I connected to the 4K monitor in the house, I had the most keen knowledge of the performance of the floor laptop Go, and never because the laptop Go had any technical points. Microsoft’s low-resolution floor laptop Go wallpaper-a fever dream of marshmallow shag carpet and sand-is even worse in 4K.
This is a photo captured from the 14-inch HP Pavilion x360 Convertible 14, which contains a 14-inch 1080p display.
Performance selection is a compromise space. You should use the USB-C port to connect with a single external 1080p program without problems, but for those users who want an HDMI port, you most likely want to connect a USB-C hub with this function. If you want to be an enthusiast (I prefer to connect the two shows with my laptop), then my floor laptop Go can be directly linked to my 4K show and a separate 1080p monitor, but it is at your discretion, but this is totally I happened to see Dock I and a pair of miniDP to HDMI cables because of the first-generation $175 floor. Through the USB-C hub, the Floor Portable Computer Go limits my 4K program refresh rate below 24Hz. I need to manually drive it to 30Hz, but it is nowhere near the popular 60Hz frequency.
If you have ever used a floor-standing keyboard, it will be flexible, and this flexibility is usually passed from one floor-standing machine to another. The floor-standing laptop Go feels a lot like a standard floor-standing keyboard. Microsoft said that it retains the 1.3 mm key travel of the floor-standing laptop 3 and the floor-standing laptop 2. I feel that the feel of the buttons is indeed very plastic, but Microsoft said one change is the paint on the keyboard resin. In fact, they are very easy to use.
Microsoft includes a Precision touchpad in the floor laptop Go, which also has its quirks. I have never felt the touchpad so smooth that I am still not sure when my fingers will slide across the floor. The best way is to click on it until you reach the highest point, although you need extra pressure as you move up.
We have seen Microsoft floor units produce unexpectedly high-efficiency audio from its internal audio system, and floor notebook computers Go are eager to popularize. Dell’s Latitude 9510 and the latest XPS laptops can produce shockingly rich, resonant audio, while the floor-standing laptop Go neatly falls into the “premium” category-a stable mixture of mid-to-high-end and high-end bass and even enough bass. Some floor units (such as floor E book series) come with Dolby Atmos audio enhancement function. Although the dual Omnisonic audio system has Dolby enhancements, the laptop Go does not. Nevertheless, it is recommended that you use headphones, but for those who or your baby have to play the video again and pay attention to other audio files in Spotify or Laptop Go’s built-in audio system, no one will complain.

Apple just introduced its iPhone 12 series, and as part of the announcement at the moment, the company has introduced an astonishing number of digital camera technologies scattered in the brand new iPhone. If you are using a digital camera or a paired iPhone, you may find some serious upgrades here.
The iPhone SE was priced at $399 12 months ago, while the iPhone XR was priced at $499. Each camera has only a 12-megapixel f/1.8% “huge” digital camera, although they are not exactly the same-the XR has a larger sensor, while the iPhone SE seems to be smaller, just like the 2017 iPhone 8 . There is no ultra-wide-angle or telephoto lens, and no fancy “deep fusion” strategy; since there is no second digital camera to confirm, your portrait mode pictures are limited to the depth that Apple’s machine learning algorithms can guess.
Nonetheless, each lens provides a six-element lens with optical image stabilization, 4K60 video recording and basic portrait mode.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini each contain two cameras, but more importantly, a single basic digital camera has been modified. Although it can provide 12 megapixels like previous phones, the lens now has 7 parts and a larger f/1.6 aperture. Compared with the earlier generation of products, the impact of the sensor on the sensor is 27 pc -This should mean blurry pictures with higher brightness, less noise and/or low softness, and almost no area depth.
Just like the iPhone 11 Professional, the iPhone 12 Professional also offers the third telephoto digital camera. As far as we know, it is the same as the f / 52mm telephoto in the last 12 months. You can also use it now Take Deep Fusion photos. However, perhaps the most obvious is that the iPhone 12 Professional also has a LIDAR sensor, which may have huge profits in low light conditions-Apple said that the LIDAR sensor can perform 6 times faster autofocus in low light conditions, and Allows you to use night mode portrait pictures.
The main digital camera of the iPhone 12 Professional Max looks likely to be a significant improvement over the basic digital camera in different iPhone 12 fashions-and this digital camera is already the highlight of the SE and iPhone 11 lineup. The 12 Professional Max’s 12-megapixel f/1.6 wide-aperture digital camera has a 47-inch larger sensor, which Apple claims can explain the 87% magnification in low-light images. The main digital camera also has optical image stabilization with sensor shift, which means that the digital camera sensor included in the digital camera will offset any movement. Ideologically speaking, this should make the pictures and movies more stable.
Each iPhone 12 Professional fashion may even have additional software program features in the morning and evening during these 12 months: assist Apple’s ProRAW format, which blends Apple’s calculated images with RAW. Until it is available, it is very burdensome to know exactly how it can improve your pictures, or to provide you with a lot of management in the process of improving pictures.
