The new Surface laptop recently presented by Microsoft, which is expected to be released in mid-June.
Also, Windows 10 S will be free for all schools that are now running Windows 10 Pro PCs, and include free Office 365 education with Microsoft Teams. However, those who would like to own a laptop that is lovely, powerful, and easy to carry around at the same time, could find exactly what they need in this device. Rather than metal or plastic, the worktop surface is covered by a fabric called Alcantara that has a feel similar to Ultrasuede. While it's true Windows 10 S can run any browser from the Store, Microsoft is restricting users from altering the default browser on this new OS. Windows 10S is significantly more locked down than the normal version of Windows 10 and will only let students install applications from the central Windows Store. After the free upgrade offer to Windows 10 Pro expires, users will still be able to switch for $50. The main feature is its 14.5 hours of battery life, that Microsoft's claims is a "game-changer" for students, so they don't have to worry about chargers. "The new laptop will get a 13.5" screen with 2256 x 1504 resolution and several different models are going to be available. Every license of Minecraft for Education will be offered for free with the Windows 10 education PCs and will be primarily targeted towards schools.
According to Microsoft, 10 S is the best Windows ever designed for education.
It runs on Windows 10 S, which is targeted at students. 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.
In a blog post announcing the Surface Laptop, though, Microsoft urged people to stick with 10 S. As Microsoft puts it in that same FAQ, "by exclusively using apps in the Windows Store and ensuring that you browse safely with Microsoft Edge, Windows 10 S keeps you running fast and secure day in and day out".
According to Extreme Tech, by locking these machines to the Windows Store is meant to ensure more consistent performance and improved battery life.
