Windows 10 New 10 papa ko te hawhe te utu o te Mata Pro, aimed at Apple’s iPad and Google’s Chromebooks but running Office
Microsoft has unveiled its direct challenge to Apple’s iPad, the cheaper, smaller and lighter Surface Go 2-in-1 Windows 10 papa.
The Surface Go resembles other models of Microsoft’s successful Surface tablet range, but has a smaller 10in screen, is 8.3mm thick and only weighs 522g. But the biggest difference is the price: the Surface Go starts at £380 in the UK and $399 i roto i te US, i te mea hawhe te utu o te na'ina'i Mata papa Pro.
Panos Pānai, āpiha hua nui mō te Microsoft, mea: "Ko iti, me te kaha Mata Haere, hoatu koe te mahi e hiahia ana koe ki te kia hua.
"A, no te hangaia matou tenei pūrere, i matou ki te ui ia tatou iho te mea e te iwi e hiahia ana, me te hiahia i te "Mata 10. mea kitea nga whakautu - Kōmāmā, hua, me te wātea ki atu te iwi. "
Rerekē te Mata atu kaha papa Pro, te Mata Haere he whitu o-whakatupuranga Intel Pentium Gold o Intel, which Microsoft says balances power consumption with performance, for a battery life of nine hours.
The Surface Go has Microsoft’s high-resolution PixelSense screen technology, including support for the Surface Pen stylus, with its full 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and very low latency. The tablet also has its own version of the detachable keyboard from the Surface Pro, and the built-in kickstand that supports up to 165-degrees of angle.
The new tablet is also the first to have both USB-C and Microsoft’s Surface Connector, following the introduction of USB-C to the mata Book 2 i roto i te Hakihea. The Surface Go also has a microSD card slot, a headphone socket and Microsoft’s Windows Hello facial recognition camera for unlocking the device. It runs in Windows 10 S mode out of the box but can be switched to regular Windows 10 at any time.
While questions remain around customer demand for a lower-power Windows machine from Microsoft, experts were broadly positive about the introduction of a cheaper Surface device, saying that it made Microsoft’s offerings more competitive with Apple’s iPad and Google’s Chromebooks, which have found success in the education market.
“Microsoft is getting more aggressive with the Surface portfolio. It’s a logical move to make the Surface concept more accessible,” said Geoff Blaber, from CCS Insight. “There is a question mark on power and performance relative to the iPad. The Surface Go is a prime candidate for Arm-based chips from Qualcomm to provide an experience much closer to iPad in terms of battery life. While this design cycle missed that opportunity I’d fully expect future products to go down that road.”
“The Surface Go is an excellent proposition. ‘Built for Office 365’ is a nice way of saying – it is not your mainstream laptop (and it shouldn’t be)," mea Rushabh Doshi, mobility analyst at Canalys. “Definitely gunning for the value-conscious iPad Pro aspirers. A ka waiho ngā kia kite, ki te taea te hanga te reira i te popo'a i roto i te mātauranga. "
