The company also updated the Surface Pro X with SQ2 -- Microsoft's second-generation custom ARM chip co-engineered with Qualcomm -- for $1,500.
Both are available for pre-order today and will ship on 13 October.
Microsoft said that what started as a vision for a PC in every single home has now evolved to the need for a PC for every single person.
Panos Panay, head of engineering for all of Microsoft's devices, said in a press briefing: “For decades, Bill Gates' vision was "A computer on every desk, and in every home, running Microsoft software."
The Surface Laptop Go is powered by Intel's 10th generation i5 QuadCore processor, up to 16GB RAM and 256GB storage, and up to 13 hours of battery life. Microsoft is also touting a full-size keyboard with 1.3mm key travel and a fingerprint power button for one touch sign-in.
It has a 720p HD camera, Studio Mics, Omnisonic Speakers, Dolby Audio, USB A, USB C, audio jack, and the Surface connector.
