Microsoft unveils new Surface laptop featuring Windows 10 S

Microsoft unveils new Surface laptop featuring Windows 10 S

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) introduced the Surface Laptop on Tuesday in New York City.

However, not only is the Surface Laptop running Microsoft's newly-announced Windows 10 S operating system, a stripped-back, education-focused version of Windows 10, it will also only enable users to download and run apps from the Windows Store.

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. The Surface Laptop is the first Surface device without a detachable keyboard.

CVR Energy stock fell 1.6 percent to $21.93 after news about the senators' letter. Biofuel credit prices plunged after Icahn became a special adviser to Trump.

The Surface Laptop breaks from the hybrid laptop-tablet format that dominated previous Surface models in favor of a more conventional clamshell design.

The Surface Laptop will be available in four colours - burgundy, graphite gold, platinum, and cobalt blue.

The most affordable configuration will retail for $999 and features an Intel Core i5 processor, 4 gigabytes of internal RAM and a 128 GB SSD, but other variants will also be available with stronger Core i7 CPUs and SSD storage up to a single terabyte. "Lots of students use the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, we know that". But he said the Surface laptop is lighter and thinner with a longer battery life than any MacBook Air or MacBook Pro on the market today. The 13.5-inch laptop features seventh-gen Intel processors, Core i5 or i7, and promises up to 14.5 hours of battery life. Users will be able to use other web browsers from the Windows Store for their specific browsing needs. Shipment will begin in June. While this may seem similar to anything that Microsoft has done in the past, this time around it has a new operating system and the new Surface Laptop to boot. So what does Windows 10 S have to offer users on a budget?

This means that desktop apps, in order to be compatible to run on the latest Windows 10 version, will need to be specially packaged and listed in the Windows Store.

The Surface Laptop is a powerful machine that can run applications like Adobe Photoshop.

— A classroom version of Microsoft Teams will let students (supervised by their teacher) chat and work together online. Without this feature, the Surface Laptop would not be a true member of the Surface family, would it?
