In our Surface Laptop Go review, we liked its stylish, premium design, class-leading keyboard, and great-looking display. During real-world testing, we launched 20 Microsoft Edge browser tabs — two of which played 1080p YouTube videos while another pair streamed Twitch. The Surface Laptop Go's kept chugging along. 

Even when we added web browsing and photo editing in Pixlr into the mix of applications, there were no crashes or significant lag. In our lab's Geekbench 5 overall performance test, the Surface Laptop Go notched a score of 3,117, beating the brakes off the Intel Y-series CPU-powered Surface Go 2 (1,563, Core m3-8100Y) and the Pixelbook Go (1,356, Core i5-8200Y).

Design-wise, the Surface Laptop Go sports a gorgeous aluminum and unique soft-to-the-touch plastic build. Its 12.4-inch display and class-leading keyboard are suitable for work, school, and everything in between. Connectivity-wise, the Surface Laptop Go equips you with a USB 3.1 Type-A port, USB Type-C input, Surface Connect port for charging the device, and headphone jack.

Weighing in at 2.45 pounds and 11 x 8.1 x 0.6 inches, the Surface Laptop Go is on par with its competitors. It's slightly lighter than the Asus' ZenBook 13 UX325UA (11.9 x 8 x 0.5 inches, 2.5 pounds) and HP Envy x360 13 (12.1 x 7.7 x 0.7 inches, 2.9 pounds). 

If you're on the hunt for a lightweight laptop with solid performance, the Surface Laptop Go is a wise choice.
