MacBook Air: Its new competitor is called Surface Laptop!

MacBook Air: Its new competitor is called Surface Laptop!

The price of the laptop is $999 with new Windows 10 S installed in it.

Microsoft is positioning Windows 10 S as a challenger to Google's Chrome OS, the operating system that is powering the affordable but powerful Chromebooks.

Virginia Beach-based Navy SEAL killed in Somalia
He was a career Navy SEAL, graduated from University of CT and resided in the Oceanfront community. Milliken, 38, of Falmouth, Maine, was the first American to die in combat in Somalia since 1993.

This is in line with how Microsoft envisions Windows 10 S usage.

What Microsoft didn't explain that clearly is that Microsoft Edge will be the default browser on Windows 10 S, and you won't be able to install Google's Chrome browser, which just happens to be the most popular Windows browser out there. Note that Edge is the default internet browser. This means that Microsoft's latest Surface brand can outlast the likes of Apple's MacBook range by a significant margin. Office 365 for Education will be free for students and teachers, and Windows 10 S will be available for all schools with Windows 10 Pro PCs. If you can't find a suitable alternative and absolutely must download something that's not in the Windows Store - like, say, Google's Chrome browser - you'll first need to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. This particular version of Windows will only let you use apps that are in Microsoft's App Store, making it a lot more restricted than regular Windows, but also somewhat improves security and performance of the OS. The device can be upgraded to Windows Pro for those who want to run apps not in the Windows App store, but it's not known if the upgrade, which would make it a full-blown laptop, will cost extra. This could count as a major drawback for the baby Windows 10. It'll also probably work with whatever USB peripherals you have.

AAP leaders discuss party performance in MCD polls
In previous several elections, the party's vote share had remained between 30 and 35 per cent in the national Capital. Two years ago, AAP had won the state election dramatically, losing just three of Delhi's 70 seats - all to BJP.

The operating system's education administration suite also includes a built-in wizard for setting up multiple Windows 10 desktops for classroom use. The downside, of course, is that devices running Windows 10 S become infinitely less versatile than literally any other standard PC.

Essentially, the Surface Laptop is a Microsoft version of a Chromebook.

Korean voters cast ballots in early voting
Despite official expectations the economy will rebound slightly in 2017, many South Koreans still feel they are struggling. Its elected President was just impeached and indicted on corruption charges, leaving behind a gaping power vacuum.

Windows RT came with an insufficient selection of apps, and while Office was included in the operating system, it was not enough to bring the software into relevance. Third party education apps Khan Academy and Fluid Math are already in the Windows Store but it's by no means a saturated marketplace.
