Microsoft’s OG Surface Go can be yours for an incredible price with a ton of accessories included

Written by admin

Released all the way back in 2018, the 10-inch Surface Go is… probably not much on your mind these days. But Microsoft’s very first (relatively) compact tablet could still be a smart buy if it rivals Amazon’s Fire lineup or Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A8 rather than the iPad Air, Galaxy Tab S7 FE, or even the iPad mini.

At $199.99 and up, the Windows 10 powered oldie is certainly affordable enough to spark more interest than ever in the past few years (at least), especially with a keyboard, a pen, and a robust case that is included at no extra cost.

That’s right, you can only cough up two Benjamins over the next few days (or until supplies run out) for a total of four products, with the tablet itself, of course, shipping in refurbished condition alongside a less-than-ideal three-month Woot limited warranty.

While the black-coated Type Cover keyboard and silver Surface Pen in this special bundle are also not new, unused, unopened, and undamaged, their combined value alone is arguably over $100, even if tweaked. Last but not least, you’re looking for an STM Dux case with a very high degree of device protection which undeniably increases the appeal of this interesting deal even further.

The first-generation Surface Go is no longer a powerhouse, of course, with an aging Intel Pentium 4415Y processor and a fairly modest 4 gig of RAM paired with slow 64GB of eMMC storage in an entry-level configuration.

But for just $259.99 you can upgrade the memory to a generous 8GB and also get a fast 128GB SSD drive. The 128 gig SSD can also be paired with 4GB of RAM for $229.99, and all three prices include all three useful accessories listed above.

Then you’ve got a sharp PixelSense touchscreen with a resolution of 1800 x 1200 pixels, a solid battery life of up to 9 hours on a single charge, and a full array of ports for everything from USB-C to 3.5mm audio and microSD storage expansion. That’s what we call a versatile and productive bargain!
