The Surface Go is a super popular laptop/tablet hybrid, and getting a Surface Go deal is high on the list of kids and students who don’t need the most powerful hybrid out there, but one that still packs a lot of features.
And there are three options to choose from. Well, actually, we’re going to concentrate on two here, and really the Surface Go 2 and Surface Go 3 are currently the main models that regularly see good Surface Go deals (the original model is a little outdated sometimes to write).
So what makes a good Surface Go deal? Well, the Surface Go 2 first came out in May 2020 and would set you back $399/£369 for the entry-level model, which came with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Today we see much lower than that, which brings the price of the entry model down to around 320 USD – with a record low level recorded at 250 USD.

So was the Surface Go 3 price, when it went on sale in 2021 $399/£369 for the entry-level model, and for that you got a better webcam and a lightweight chassis… and not much else (4GB of RAM? Really?!) To check out why we’d recommend the Surface Go 2 over the newer 3, check out our full Surface Go 3 review.

The best Surface Go deals
The Surface Go 2 is still the Go we’d recommend out of the range, and that’s because it was a great addition when it came out in 2020, and now that you can find it with some decent discounts on it, it’s the best Surface Go deal all around.
The whole point of the Surface Go 2 is that it’s super portable, powerful enough for general use by kids and students, and it has a nice design. Make no mistake, this is not for professional creatives! There will be no graphic design work here, nor video editing projects. But for those who want to quickly browse and play basic games, whether on a laptop or tablet, the Go 2 is a great option.
Perhaps most importantly, a big plus with the Go 2 is that since it’s quite a bit lower in price than the newer Go 3, you’ll be able to buy the extra keyboard (no, it doesn’t come with the tablet), without the price tag going up in the realms of higher spec laptop/tablet hybrids.
The main reason we’re not too generous in our assessment of the Surface Go 3 is that we feel it has a claim to be for more power-hungry users. What we love about the Surface Go 2 is that it knows exactly that it’s for students who want to browse, stream the odd video and write essays on the gorgeous keyboard. The Surface Go 3 loses sight of that, and with its not-so-touch-friendly Windows 11, it’s a bit of a bummer because of it.
If you try to use it for more advanced tasks, like photo editing, the speed and power is overwhelming. Add to that a rather weak battery life when using high-end software like Photoshop, and the only way we’d recommend this hybrid laptop was if you found it much lower than the original price of $399/£399 – which is certainly possible (but also then, just go for Go 2!).
