Citing sources from Windows Central, IANS said the Surface Laptop Go line is Microsoft’s budget-friendly Surface Laptop, and it is said to be one of the best Surface PCs for students because of its premium design and small overall form factor.
The upcoming Surface Laptop Go 2 will begin shipping in the first half of this year, likely sometime in June. Surface Laptop Go 2 will ship with an 11th-generation Intel Core i5 chip, up from the 10th-generation processor in the first Surface Laptop Go.
The entry-level model is expected to be shipped with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, just like the current Surface Laptop Go. According to the sources, Surface Laptop Go 2 will target the same starting price of $549 for the entry-level model. Pricing for the higher configurations is expected to remain the same as well, IANS report said.
In another news, Microsoft has alerted users about the latest malware campaigns and cyber threats and informed them that China-based state-sponsored threat actor group Hafnium is stirring the pot once again.
The attack comes from Hafnium, the state-sponsored, China-based group that users may recall to be a big deal because of its involvement in the Microsoft Exchange meltdown of 2021. The data gathered during that ordeal has been speculated to be fuel for AI innovations by the Chinese government, the report said.
