Following yesterday’s leaks, Microsoft has officially detailed the Surface Laptop Go 2, the company’s latest laptop aimed at more budget-oriented users. The second iteration starts at $599 and maintains the sleek and light design of the original while implementing more powerful hardware such as a quad-core 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor with Iris Xe graphics and higher storage options in the form of a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD (the original only featured 64 GB of eMMC storage as its base option). Users will also find a 12.4-inch 1,536 x 1,024 touch display, a specification that echoes the original, as well as slightly improved battery life from 13 to 13.5 hours. Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go 2 is available for preorder beginning today and will begin shipping June 7.
