Microsoft to Rival Chromebooks Soon - Hardware Changes Coming

Posted May 15, 2017

The new preview of Office contains the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps which are now delivered and updated from the Microsoft Store for Education.

During an event in New York City, Microsoft device head Panos Panay said that he heard from graduating high school students that they wanted a Surface laptop, so Microsoft built one. Then again the Windows Store has gotten better since, and Microsoft is specifically aiming this at managed environments like the education market, where Chrome OS is thriving with similar limitations.

As for the specifications, the new Surface Laptop a 13.5-inch PixelSense display and a 3:2 aspect ratio.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) earlier revealed the Surface Laptop, a super sleek notebook, which represents the tech company's first-ever genuine attempt at rolling out a "true" clamshell laptop device. The Surface Laptop, though, will start at $999, the same as the MacBook Air.

The only apps that run on Windows 10 S are those that are preloaded on the machines, and those are downloaded from the Windows Store. It weighs 1.25kg and measures 14mm thick.

The laptop uses the latest Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, and the company says that the battery life will last for 14.5 hours as a result.

MSFT has incorporated its new Surface Laptop with its latest Windows 10 S, which happens to be a more efficient and secure version of the previous Windows 10 OS.

According to The Verge, the Windows 10 S is essentially Microsoft's answer to Chrome OS, which is meant to simplify Windows for low-end hardware, particularly in the education market.

The Surface Laptop will be available in four colours - burgundy, graphite gold, platinum, and cobalt blue. You can use other apps, but Microsoft will require an as-yet-unrevealed fee to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro to do it.

The Surface Laptop is targeted towards the student community who prefer a stylish and modern looking laptop that's lightweight and can do fast computing.
