The Verdict

The Surface Go 3 is expected to be a modest affordable laptop for both business users and home users. However, if your work requires heavy files and software, the Surface Go3 isn’t for you. The Processor i3 is very weak. ‘Geekbench’ scores suggest that the Surface Go 3 wouldn’t be able to handle simple photo editing. The processor is destined to give up in situations like these. Although if you are looking for a budget laptop that can fulfil your basic daily errands online or offline, the Surface Go 3 might just be the best option for you.
