Surface Laptop Go shipped with Windows 10 Home in S Mode (now available with Windows 11 Home in S Mode, if not just make sure you have updated your Surface Laptop Go after the device arrives at your home).
Additionally, you can add a Microsoft Office 365 Family plan for 15 months subscription with up to 6 people sharing and 6TB of cloud storage (1TB per person) which is now available at a discount of $30 and cost $69.99 down from $99.99 (the discount only valid when you buy Surface Laptop Go whether it is 128GB or 256GB model and add Microsoft Office 365 Family plan).

You can add this Microsoft Office 365 Family subscription plan as a bundle on the above-discounted Surface Laptop Go which is now $150 off for the 128GB model and $200 off on the 256GB model. Well, Microsoft Office 365 Family subscription for 15 months is optional, if you don’t want to spend $69.99 choose the None option to skip it.
The students and educators in the USA with eligible institutions can sign up for Office 365 Education for free, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and there’s more. Microsoft also added Microsoft Teams, plus additional classroom tools in this free suite for education. The student and educators only need is to get valid email addresses from their qualified institutions.
If you already know which institutions are eligible, then you get started HERE and if you’re not sure make sure you have asked for help on Microsoft’s USA website and ask them which institutions are qualified for Office 365 Education for free in the USA, you can ask contact support directly on the same page as getting started with Office 365 Education for free which I have already added at the beginning of this paragraph.
So, who is supposed to use this Microsoft Surface Laptop Go? Students, in my view. Because it features a 12.4-inch PixelSense touchscreen display that is ideal for use on college or school desks, as compared to a bulky 15.6-inch laptop that takes up a lot of desk space. And the Surface Laptop Go offers a long-lasting battery life of up to 13 hours (with fast charging support), which is another plus point for your college or schoolwork.
Surface Laptop Go offers SSD storage that speeds up your tasks. It’s beneficial to have SSD storage on your laptop because, in the past, laptops with HDD storage took 20 seconds or more to boot up and apps take a much longer time to open (such an embarrassment in front of your schoolmates or teachers), whereas SSD storage allows your laptop to boot in just 3 seconds.
Another great feature of the Surface Laptop Go is that it has a built-in security chip that provides Enterprise-grade protection with Windows Hello one-touch sign-in and One Touch sign-in with Fingerprint Reader Power button. (Keep in mind that the Surface Laptop Go also comes in an i5/4 GB/64 GB configuration without a fingerprint power button, so keep that in mind when making your purchase.)
And another major point is that you can use day-to-day tasks like school or college projects or homework or doing amazing presentations on PowerPoint, then I recommend students to take advantage of Microsoft Office 365 Family or Office 364 Personal plan for just $99.99 and $69.99 respectively (if your institutions not eligible for Office 365 Education for free, then maybe this would be a great choice for you).
During Microsoft’s Black Friday sale you can get Microsoft Office 365 Family plan at just $69.99 ($30 discount) which normally costs $99, but you need to purchase Surface Laptop Go and add Microsoft Office 365 Family plan to the cart to get the $30 off on Microsoft Office 365 Family. If you go with straight Microsoft Office 365 Family without Surface Laptop Go then you have to pay in full which is $99.99, just reminding you.
The Office 365 Family plan comes with 6TB of cloud storage (1TB for each person) and sharing with up to 6 people. But if you looking for a lifetime license of Microsoft Office maybe you should look for Microsoft Office Home & Student 2021 which costs $149.99 one-time purchase and is applicable for one device only with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint suite.
