Here’s our first look at the entry-level Surface Go, and its slower storage. With the reviews of the new Microsoft Surface Go landing one thing is obvious: everyone is looking at the more expensive $550 version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as the one to buy versus the $399 option with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of space. Part of that is just the expectation of 8GB of RAM is better especially if using something like the Chrome browser. But the real concern is the type of storage used – eMMC – which is expected to be significantly slower than SSD found in the more expensive model. If you don’t know the difference, we wrote an excellent primer on how the two storage formats compare. But what about real-world benchmarks? Surface Go 64GB eMMC – How much slower is the $399 model anyway?
