The best Microsoft Surface Go alternative right now is great for remote working

The Chuwi UBook Pro is probably the best alternative to Microsoft's Surface Go, which appears to have been discontinued. The Surface Go is currently out of stock and has been so for a while. You can still pick it up from third party retailers, but often at a premium.

This Chuwi tablet is the best alternative to Microsoft's Surface Go on the market - and it'll cost you far less. With an Intel Celeron 4100 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, the UBook Pro can do everything its rival can and more.

The Chuwi UBook Pro, meanwhile, is available for $399.99 (roughly £340/AU$670) from Gearbest with coupon code GBCHUWI123.

Add the capacitive stylus pen and original keyboard cover and the price creeps up to just under $470, which is still far lower than the 128GB version of the Surface Go (which comes with no additional accessories).

For your money, you get a Gemini Lake-based Intel Celeron N4100 that is significantly faster than the Surface Go's Pentium 4415Y (based on CPUBenchmark numbers).

The UBook Pro also features a 12.3-inch Full HD display, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD - twice the storage capacity of the Microsoft tablet.

Bear in mind...

If this product comes from mainland China, it will take at least a month to reach either the US or the UK (and potentially more). You may be levied a tax either directly or through the courier. 

Have you managed to get hold of a cheaper product with equivalent specifications, in stock and brand new? Let us know and we'll tip our hat to you.

The Surface Go has a smaller display size and more petite footprint, which means the Chuwi device is slightly heavier. The camera sensors on Microsoft’s tablet also have a higher resolution, but the UBook Pro has more connectors - including an HDMI port, which means you won’t need a docking station to connect up to a monitor.

Bear in mind, the exact price in non-US territories will depend on the day’s exchange rate. Gearbest ships to most countries worldwide via expedited shipping, but you may be levied an additional tax.
