Most of Microsoft’s Surface products are available in consumer or business versions. But when the company introduced the Surface Go 4 tablet this week, the company made the unusual decision to only unveil the Surface Go 4 for Business, noting that it’d be sold through business channels rather than through retail stores.

But it turns out one of those business channels is the Microsoft Store, which means that pretty much anybody can buy the new 10.5 inch tablet with an Intel N200 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 10.5 inch display, and optional support for a keyboard and digital pen. The Surface Go 4 for Business is available now for $580 and up.

The starting price is for a model with 64GB of UFS storage, but you can also pay more for 128GB and 256GB models, which sell for $680 and $780, respectively. Just keep in mind that the only difference is that the higher-priced models have more storage.

You’ll also have to pay extra for the optional pen and keyboard.

All models have the same 6-watt, 4-core, 4-thread Intel N200 Alder Lake-N processor, the same 10.5 inch, 1920 x 1280 pixel display, and the same 8GB of LPDDR5 memory.

Here’s a full run-down of the tablet’s specs:

While the new is exactly the same size as the previous-gen Surface Go 3, it weighs a little less (521 grams vs 544 grams) and Microsoft says it should deliver up to 80% faster performance, thanks to the processor upgrade.

Unfortunately there’s one Surface Go 3 option that hasn’t carried over to this year’s model… at least not yet. You can still buy a Surface Go 3 with 4G LTE, but there’s currently no cellular option for the Surface Go 4 for Business.

  1. So at best this tablet makes a shitty frisbee that starts at $600 and up and runs Windows 11?

  2. I got an open box Surface go 2 LTE (M3 128GB) + keyboard for $290 and at that price it’s probably the best purchase I have ever made. It replaced my iPad pro.
    This go 4, even the most expensive version is no better (same RAM, slightly better processor and no cellular)

  3. Also hoping for a non-ARM 5G version to replace my LTE one.

    In the past, the LTE versions came out later but they at least announced them. Wondering if there really won’t be a 4G/5G variant.

    1. Yeah, MS did announce the LTE variants for the previous generations at the same time as the non-LTE ones even if they came out later. Since they weren’t announced at all, I’m concerned there might not be any 4G/5G version.

      There was that rumor a few months ago about the ARM version being postponed but I’m not interested in Windows on ARM anyway (at least not with the current state of things).

  4. Not worth more than $349. I like to see N100 Win tablets under $200 (10″) and small 8″ tablets for $100-120 like in Atom era.
    as an alternative option Snapdragon should introduce 10″ for $150 (similar to andoid LTE tab prices)

      1. I really hope 4G/5G isn’t restricted to the ARM version that was talked about a while ago.

        Interestingly, there was no ARM based Surface Go announcement or I missed it. Maybe it was cancelled.

  5. Seems like they’re downgrading from NVMe SSD (in the 128gb+ models) to UFS storage across the board?

    Despite the high price seen here, considering the fact that this is commercial pricing, this is actually a bit cheaper than the previous Surface Go 3. With the older model, getting at least 8gb of RAM as a commercial customer cost at least $680.

    The commercial pricing is higher because they come with Windows 11 Pro, have a longer support and warranty period, and their warranty is handled in a way that they ship out a replacement before you send yours back.

  6. It seems at least $300 overpriced compared to a standard mediocre Android tablet that would even come with a larger display such as Lenovo, etc.

  7. That’s what I did to get my current “business” Surface Go LTE. Got it directly from the MS store.

    I’ll upgrade to the Go 4 if it comes out with built-in 5G. That’s a required feature me since I don’t tethering my phone nor using a hotspot.
