Not yet announced, the second version of Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go is leaking from a Korean retailer who is announcing pre-orders for the Redmond firm’s ultra-portable computer.
Microsoft could announce a new Surface Laptop Go very soon; an update to his laptop without a major aesthetic change. This is what we can think if we believe the pre-orders announced by a South Korean retailer, spotted by The Verge. Earlier in the month, WinFuture reported that the starting price for this computer could be $650.
Pre-orders that should open on June 2, which implies an official announcement expected very soon. Unfortunately, the page has been closed, which reinforces the hypothesis that this is a blunder.
An 11th generation Intel processor
Although the design should be similar, if not identical, the Surface Laptop Go 2 should perform better than its predecessor. It should benefit from an 11th generation Intel processor, the i5-1135G7 which replaces the 10th generation processor on the first of the name. On the RAM, the dealer ” suggests » that there would be up to 8 GB of RAM; up to 256 GB for storage.The Vergewrites that “the specifications of its base model are less clears“. Autonomy was also announced on the site of the Korean retailer and would be 13.5 hours maximum.
The webcam should also be better, as a result of the boom in videoconferencing. The screen would apparently be very similar too, with a diagonal of 12.4 inches with a 3:2 aspect ratio. On the connector side, we would find the same ports, namely USB-A, USB-C, a 3.5 mm jack, as well as the charger (proprietary).
However, we should not be entitled to backlighting for the keyboard, an absence that we pointed out during our test of the Surface Laptop Go. Unlike its big brother, Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Go 2 would be delivered directly with Windows 11.
While Microsoft hasn’t officially unveiled its Surface Laptop Go update yet, it seems pretty logical that it’s looking to compete with the work computer market, especially Chromebooks.
