Microsoft Surface Go 2 and Book 3 Malaysia release: 2-in-1 form factor and Surface Pen support from ~RM1955
Are you a fan of Microsoft Surface devices? Well, good news for you because the latest Surface Go 2 and Surface Book 3 are coming to Malaysia this month. You'll be able to get the latest mobile devices from Microsoft from retailers like Harvey Norman or online shops like Lazada.
First, let's talk about the Surface Go 2. The device was first revealed back in April 2020, so we already know that it's running on either an Intel Pentium Gold or 8th Gen Intel Core m3-8100Y CPU. It also has up to 8GB of RAM, has either a 64GB eMMC or 128GB SSD for the internal storage, and a 10.5-inch PixelSense display.
In terms of features, it comes with the Studio Mics dual-microphone for better voice clarity and lower background noise in video meetings. Additionally, there's a 5MP front camera and 8MP rear camera that can be used to quickly scan documents. Best of all is the Surface Pen, which makes tasks like sketching and drawing much easier.
Next, we have the Surface Book 3, which is a 2-in-1 laptop with a detachable keyboard. It's effectively an ultrabook that can also turn into a tablet. Available in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes, the Surface Book 3 comes with the latest 10th Gen Intel Core CPU, up to 32GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of SSD storage. It even has variants with different dedicated GPUs for you to choose from, including the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q and Quadro RTX 3000 Max-Q.
Besides the two new mobile PCs, Microsoft also has a new Surface Dock 2 and USB-C Travel Hub. These are optional accessories meant to expand the usability of the new Surface devices and other laptop PCs by providing additional ports. In particular, you'll get extra ports like Ethernet, HDMI, and even a legacy VGA port on the Travel Hub.
For those who are interested in the new Surface devices, you can pre-order them now from the authorised shops. The Surface Go 2 will be available officially on 18 June 2020 from RM1955, while the Surface Book 3 can be yours starting 23 June 2020 from RM7788.
