Microsoft only put the new Surface Laptop Go into the race at the end of November – now the entry-level device is getting its first firmware update. This brings a number of improvements, the update is recommended to all users.

The new firmware and driver updates are now available to Surface Laptop Go owners. It is the first software update that Microsoft has released after the new Surface series device went on sale. The Surface Laptop Go has been available in the USA since October and in Germany since the end of November.

It is interesting that this first update is basically released so late. As a rule, the group always publishes a first bug fix update shortly after the market launch of new devices within a few days. It didn’t seem necessary this time.

The following new updates are available:

  • ELAN Fingerprint – Biometrics – Version 3.15.12011.10134: Improves the performance of the Windows Hello fingerprint reader
  • Surface System Telemetry – Version 2.27.137.0: Facilitates the analysis of the energy and heat-related data
  • Surface – Firmware – Version 4.1.6.0: Improves the touch stability
  • Surface firmware version 8.12.140.0: Improves system stability

The update is recommended to all users and is available via the automatic Windows update function. There are currently no indications of further bug fixes.

The Surface Laptop Go is available in platinum, sandstone, and ice blue. In the Microsoft store, there is talk of a delivery time between two and three working days. Depending on the equipment, you currently pay between 613 and 974 euros, plus there are bundles with additional accessories and software offers.
