Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 12.4" - Intel Core i5 8GB-RAM 256GB-SSD - Platinum is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the look and feel of this- the price was not too expensive for what I was looking for. I really like that this has space to store some items on a hard drive rather than buying an external or saving everything on a cloud. I didn't find a lot of accessories for it though however it connects to the internet which is full of accessories to buy. The screen is bright and clear, the mouse pad is responsive and it's fast.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I liked this laptop I liked this laptop and the user friendly compatibility. This laptop seemed a bit pricy for the specs. It doesn't have the best graphics card or ram. I definitely prefer 16 gb of ram and a decent graphics card even though I wouldn't consider myself to be a gamer. I also don't find the tablet mode feature that useful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got this computer I got this computer when I started taking my online college courses. It is lightweight, easy to use, and has lots of beautiful cover options. The only issue I have with it is some of the software needed for some of classes does not work well with it, so still have to go an hour away to the campus for some tests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like having the surface plus. It’s very good for any assignments or planning in mind. I used it every single day. It would be nice if it could fold 360 degree. There was no factory reset button but overall satisfied with it will totally recommend.
