Microsoft is holding an education-focused conference in the United States city of New York (#MicrosoftEDU) on 9.30 am Eastern Time (9.30pm Malaysian time) May 2.
Microsoft is taking aim at Google as it introduced a Surface device for students and slimmed down Windows for the classroom. Shipping is expected to start from 15 June and United Kingdom availability has yet to be confirmed. The offering might weigh in at 2.76 pounds and measure 14.47mm at the back and 9.9mm at the front. "This is the thinnest LDC touch model every created and put into a laptop", says Panay, complete with 3.4 million pixels.
As for its own Windows 10 S dedicated device, Microsoft has announced the Surface Laptop. He spent close to half an hour explaining the nitty-gritty: There are no hinges, bumpers or screws visible, and it has a smooth finish. Also, the device supports Microsoft Surface Pen. And that is what Microsoft has given the students, a Surface Laptop that costs $999 for the basic configuration with Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB memory, and 128GB internal storage. The Surface Laptop is the first Surface device without a detachable keyboard.
At Microsoft's New York Education event, the company announced a new addition to their Surface lineup called the Surface Laptop.
The Surface Laptop is lighter and faster is than any MacBook Air or Pro in the market, Panay said.
Windows 10 S is essentially Microsoft's answer to Google's Chrome OS, simplifying Windows for low-end devices with a renewed emphasis on the education market.
Microsoft said Windows 10 S allows educators and students access all their favorite and most-used apps across STEM, learning tools, secure assessment tools, content publishers, interactive whiteboards and more. However, if users wish to continue to download third-party apps, they can do so by switching to Windows 10 Pro.
Tech enthusiasts and fans have been patiently waiting for Microsoft to unveil the Windows 10 Cloud operating system and the Surface CloudBook. Other administrator features include the ability to use a USB key to set up a PC in seconds with the Setup My PC wizard.
Windows 10 S will be available on the new Microsoft Surface Laptop when it is released. The Windows 10 S devices will start shipping this summer and start from $189.
Windows 10 S will only be available on new machines you buy.
