Microsoft unveils Surface Laptop with price tag of $999

Microsoft introduces Windows 10 S for classrooms and a new 'Surface Laptop' MacBook competitor

The new Surface laptop weighs 1.25 Kg and it's 1.5 centimeters slim at the rear and 1 centimeter at the front.

To begin with, Windows 10 S has a new desktop icon.

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

Windows 10 S, compatible on mobiles and desktops, has a simple login app that allows schools to create logs on any devices in a few moments, Microsoft said at an education conference in NY. It offers a faster login experience for students and only runs applications downloaded from the Windows Store to ensure security.

Microsoft has decided that Edge will permanently be the default browser on Windows 10 S. This means that even if Google releases Chrome on the Store, Edge will still open by default every time you click on an HTML link. Windows 10 S PCs are also fully manageable when utilizing a mobile device management software, including Microsoft Intune.

Microsoft has not yet revealed what exactly the letter S stands for, but we do know that the Windows 10 is the latest version of Windows. In terms of design, the new Surface Laptop has a metal body with flawless lines and an ultra-slim body. He also stated that Microsoft has "streamlined" the default wallpaper for the new Windows 10 S, a unusual change to note during Microsoft's keynote. According to Microsoft, the device running on a seventh generation Intel Core processor can offer up to four more hours of battery power than a 13 inch MacBook Pro. This is possible because Windows 10 S is a lightweight version of Windows 10, with less hardware configurations that will allow it to be run on cheaper and less powerful computers as low as $189.

Windows 10 is Microsoft's best operating system in forever.

As expected, Microsoft launched yesterday, at an event in NY, its Surface Laptop. All the devices will ship with a free Minecraft: Education Edition subscription. Why Microsoft made this decision is beyond me, but if user feedback and demand grows to an unprecedented level, maybe Microsoft will change their minds.

The first PC equipped with this operating system, the Surface Laptop, is now available to preorder starting from $999, with shipping scheduled from mid-June 2017.
