The Surface Go is just just 8.3mm thick and weighs 520g sans keyboard and stylus (optional extras). Microsoft will release the device on August 2 starting at $399, making it a rare affordable device in the Surface family.

The news, which was broken on Microsoft's official Windows Blog, confirms that the Go will be the cheapest, smallest, and lightest Surface ever.

Microsoft has just announced the Surface Go tablet for $399 which is going to compete against the entry level Apple iPad, which now retails for $329. The custom calibrated 3:2 display is soft on your eyes while you're working and vibrantly high-contrast when you want to watch videos, create art, or edit photos. Check. Touch, Surface Pen, and Surface Dock support?

The built-in kickstand (something the iPad lacks) gives you 165 degrees of freedom along with just the right amount of friction. You can also add a $99 or $129 keyboard to turn it into a laptop, an option Apple reserves for the much more expensive iPad Pro. The battery should last for about nine hours according to Microsoft, which is more than decent for a tablet.

The Surface Go also features a USB-C port and a micro SD expansion slot. "Microsoft now offers the Surface Go in Wi-Fi-only flavor with LTE version coming “later this year".

A commercial for the new Surface Go can be viewed below.

The Go will run Windows 10 with S mode enabled, which means you can only install apps from the Microsoft App Store. Yeah, it should work well on a table or desk, but this is a portable machine - you don't always have a flat surface when on the go. The aesthetics of the Surface Go are similar to other Surface tablets, retaining the hinge found across the product line.

The Surface Go has clearly been designed with students in mind, with the portrait mode able to render the page to the scale of school textbooks.

Microsoft Surface Go specs: What features does the new budget Surface have? The 10-inch screen is nearly a full inch smaller. The 256GB configuration does not yet have a price tag. Just remember that Alcantara stains easily. Upgrade to the more powerful model, and add the keyboard, and you're looking at spending nearly twice as much as the $329 iPad. Another new accessory is the Surface Mobile Mouse, an ambidextrous, Bluetooth mouse powered by a pair of AAA batteries and priced at $34.99. It's also selling a version with 128GB of storage and double the memory for $549. It's so easy to carry Surface Go with me so I can capture those moments, instantly. Well, given the starting price point, anyone on the move, really.

Make no mistake, Microsoft's Surface business in total is still a fraction of Apple's enormous hardware revenues.
