Microsoft unveils their Surface laptop

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

The latest version of Microsoft's OS is stripped back and locked down.

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

As Panos Panay, head of Microsoft's Surface division, said, the new laptop weighs 1.25 kilograms, which is slightly lighter than the Macbook Air (1.35 kilograms).

It runs on Windows 10 S, which is targeted at students. The laptop uses a rather unusual 3:2 aspect ratio and according to Microsoft, the display will feature 3.4 million pixels, which should translate to an effective resolution of 2250 x 1500 pixels. As for battery Microsoft says that Surface Laptop can last up to 14.5 hours of battery life.

The wait for a new Surface hardware is finally over as Microsoft announced its new Surface Laptop at the EDU Event in NY.




A "new flavour" of the flagship operating system, Windows 10 S looks like the current version, but can only run apps and programs downloaded from the Windows Store.

Six years ago, Google debuted the bare-bones Chromebook product line running its own operating system instead of Windows.

If you happen to buy a machine that comes pre-installed with Windows 10 S and you don't like it, you'll be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free until the end of the year, after which the upgrade will set you back $50. More expensive configurations incorporate the latest Intel Core i7 processor, run on the 16GB worth of RAM and offer internal storage that can be as high as a terabyte. The flagship Laptop from Microsoft costs $999 and features the Windows 10 S as its core operating system.

Windows 10 S mainly meant to run on Windows 10 education PCs from Microsoft partners like Acer and Dell at sub $200 prices. But, what makes Surface Laptop so unique?

The device comes in four colours, gold, platinum, blue, and burgundy and ditches a metal area around the keyboard for soft microfibre.

The Surface Laptop will become available in the market starting June 15.
