The high priestess of minimalism, the American Marie Kondo, has perhaps also been imitated in new technologies. This is the first thought that comes to mind when facing the Surface Laptop Go 2, the new laptop carried by Microsoft.
The small polished gray aluminum shell does not shine with the superfluous, mainly in terms of connectors. Headset jack included, the computer only has four ports: a USB-C 3.2 port compatible with charging, a USB 3.2 10 Gb/s port and a Surface Connect port that doubles as a charging port.
12.4 inch touch screen
But it’s in use that this elegant device shows its full power and is more than enough for office automation (Windows 11 is pre-installed) or watching a few series on stream.
Equipped with a bright 12.4-inch touchscreen, the Laptop Go 2 offers a premium design (four colors are available) and excellent working comfort.

For this second version (purists talk about the Go 2 as a minimal version of its big sister released in 2020), Microsoft has chosen an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor accompanied by 4 or 8 GB of RAM and a 128 or 256 GB SSD. The computer also has an improved HD camera, secure Hello login.
And who says portable, says computer that can be transported anywhere. The Surface Laptop Go2 weighs just over a kilo, but it is above all its dimensions that make it a universal device: 27.8 cm wide and 21 cm deep. Folded up, its thickness approaches two centimeters. Easy to store in a bag. Its autonomy is about ten hours.
