The bottom mannequin of the Surface Go (pitched at $399.99, £379.99 or AU$599.99) has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage, whereas the costlier mannequin ($549.99, £509.99 or AU$839.99) runs with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
Nonetheless, Neowin noticed that Costco is promoting a 3rd spin on the pill which sticks with the essential 4GB of system reminiscence, however has the 128GB SSD of the dearer mannequin, basically being a center floor between the 2. The SSD storage is manner faster than cheaper eMMC flash reminiscence, and can end in a lot snappier efficiency.
