Microsoft Develops Budget Laptop, Surface Laptop Go 3

Surface Laptop Go 3 will be one of the new models with which Microsoft will update its catalog of devices. Codenamed ‘Gulliver’, the new version of the budget laptop will keep the general design, but will improve the internal hardware as the main novelty.

Microsoft Surface, the software giant’s own line of hardware, celebrated its first ten years on the market last year and the firm celebrated it by renewing some of its most significant models. We must highlight the growth in quantity and quality of Surface has been constant and currently offers all kinds of equipment to meet the different needs of the user.

One of the models to update next fall will be this entry-level laptop. Together with the Surface Go tablets, the most economical of the Microsoft hardware line. From the initial version that we had the opportunity to review, the design has not changed much in a chassis that combines aluminum and polycarbonate and it is not expected to do so this time, keeping the dimensions contained and its 12.4-inch touch screen.

The novelties will be inside, with the twelfth generation Intel processors in front. They should give the laptop a little more performance and autonomy, and additional “AI-powered” features, such as Voice Clarity and Voice Focus, currently available on computers with dedicated neural processing units (NPUs).

Microsoft will raise the level of the base configuration, discarding the version with 4 Gbytes of RAM, clearly insufficient in these times to handle Windows. Thus, the Surface Laptop Go 3 will start with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB PCIe SSD. A minor update that will hopefully upgrade the wireless connectivity options to Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3. No improvement is expected on the trackpad and on the keyboard that should be backlit.

The laptop will pre-install Windows 11 with software support that is a strong point in Microsoft devices. The increase in hardware level (and the general price increase due to the inflation of the technological industry) will raise its base price to $699. If the rumors are confirmed, it will be presented at an event in October and would be available in time for the Christmas holidays.
