A year ago, we announced the thin, light, and LTE-connected Surface Pro X, running on our Microsoft SQ2 ARM silicon. This product merged the versatility features of Surface Pro with new levels of power efficiency and connectivity.

Apps like Microsoft Teams and Office are optimized for ARM, as are other apps like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Our new Wi-Fi-only model means we’re bringing the thin, sleek design with all-day battery life to its most affordable entry price point yet, providing versatility and optionality to even more customers.

Surface Go 3 (Starts at $399.99)

The most portable Surface 2-in-1 is perfect for your everyday tasks, homework and play. Designed to light up the best of Windows 11, Surface Go 3 is 60% faster with an Intel Core i3 processor. This product brings optional LTE Advanced, all-day battery, built-in Microsoft security, and is optimized for tablet-to-laptop versatility with digital Pen and touch.

Surface Duo 2 (Starts at $1,499.99)

Designed to showcase the power of Microsoft 365 in your pocket, Surface Duo brings dual-screen productivity and entertainment with you wherever you go.

  1. I’m a big Macbook user, but now that M1 and WIn11 have all but killed Windows virtualization, I am looking hard at getting one of these to have in my bag for when I need a PC.

    Not totally sold yet, but it’s damn tempting.
