Visually, Surface Laptop Go 2 is no different from its predecessor. It still features a 12.4-inch PixelSense touchscreen, and the body is made from a mixture of aluminum and polycarbonate. There's still no keyboard backlighting or support for Windows Hello facial recognition, but the webcam for video calls is a bit better. However, Surface Laptop Go 2 comes with four color options, Ice Blue, Sandstone, Platinum and Sage.
