Microsoft's Surface Go 2 is one of the best detachable 2-in-1 laptops to buy. The Surface Go in this deal packs a 10.5-inch (1920 x 1280) touch screen, 1.7-GHz Intel Pentium 4425Y dual-core CPU, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. 

In our Microsoft Surface Go 2 review, we liked its vivid display, sleek design, and excellent webcam. These attributes as well as its impressive 11 hours and 39-minute battery life earned it a 4 out of 5-star rating. The review unit we tested had a Core m3-8100Y processor and 8GB of RAM, which is great for everyday multitasking. We expect the laptop in this deal to be on a par, with seamless performance for creating docs, managing emails and web browsing. 

At 9.7 x 6.9 x 0.3 inches, this 1.2-pound tablet is about the same size and weight as the first-gen Surface Go (0.3 inches, 1.2 pounds). It's slightly heavier than the Apple iPad Air (0.2 inches thick, 1 pound). 

The Surface Go 2 Type Cover keyboard has a 3.8 x 2.2-inch smooth and responsive touchpad. It's a bit small, but we had no issues navigating the web, pinch-to-zooming or two-finger scrolling. 

For your connectivity needs, the Surface Go 2 has a USB-C port, Surface Connect port (for charging and docking), microSD slot and headphone jack. 

At just $549, this Surface Go 2 bundle is an incredible value if you're looking for a capable PC for school, work and leisure.
