Microsoft is targetting the Surface Go at Firstline Workers and business customers that need an internet connection on the go. It features 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Unlike the ARM-based Windows 10 notebooks and 2-in-1s we've seen from HP, Lenovo, and others, Microsoft opted to stick with an Intel x86 processor. But if you need a portable Windows 10 tablet that also converts into a laptop with the help of a keyboard dock, then the Go is the cheapest version you can get.

Last week Microsoft added an extra configuration to the Surface Go lineup.

For consumers, there's a single configuration.

Markle apparently wanted to wear an emerald tiara but Her Majesty would not allow it because it came from an unknown origin. Bride-to-be Markle wished to wear a tiara with emeralds but was refused after its origins could not be established.

Microsoft's most diminutive Surface tablet, the Surface Go, follows in the footsteps of its older and since-replaced brother the Surface Pro by getting an option to configure it with LTE Advanced connectivity.

LTE adds $130 to the system price. It will go on sale in the U.S. and Canada starting November 20, while other 21 markets around the globe will get the new Surface Go variant on November 22. Pricing for the LTE model starts at $679 for consumers and $729 for commercial customers. Preorders start Monday for select markets, and Microsoft expects it to be available in 23 markets by November 22. While wifi hotspots can be found all over the USA nowadays, there are still times when you may need to get some work done while you're, say, taking an Uber to the other side of the city.
