Except for the Go series, Microsoft Surface computers have always been on the pricier side. The Microsoft Surface Notebook Go 2 is a new entry-level laptop from the Windows manufacturer. It is the enhanced successor to the first-generation Microsoft Surface Laptop Go.

However, some of the new Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2’s specs are comparable to those of its predecessor. The new entry-level laptop, for example, has a 12.4-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio.
