Everything you need to know about Windows 10 S

It's no secret that college students require long-lasting battery life as such users are constantly on the go so that the Surface Laptop could represent as the ideal purchase.

Microsoft unveiled its Surface Laptop at an education-focused event in New York City, where it also introduced its Windows 10 S operating system.

The laptop comes at a rough time for the Surface line, which Microsoft blamed for the small revenue shortfall in its latest quarterly report. The new Surface Laptop boasts a 13.5-inch screen, weighs a mere 2.76 pounds and will come in burgundy, cobalt, platinum and gold.

Microsoft Surface Laptop is powered by Core i5 and i7 processors and supports up to 1TB PCIe SSD option. While Apple is also a dominant player in the same market with its successful MacBook Air and MacBook Pro range, the same can not be said about Microsoft. This particular OS is only capable of running apps from the Windows Store, which will ensure that the apps are better suited to work with your machine.


At an event on Tuesday, Microsoft unveiled a glossy new laptop and an updated version of Windows 10 meant to appeal to students and educators.

Yesterday, Microsoft announced Windows 10 S as an alternative OS primarily for upcoming budget PCs that are aimed at the education market. Windows 10 S is a streamlined version of Microsoft's operating system geared for students and educators.

The most low-priced 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. As Surface Laptop runs on Windows 10 S, it features a new default desktop image and everything that runs on Windows 10 S can be downloaded from Windows App Store.

The battery life is about 14.5 hours, according to Panay. The new edition of Minecraft will be available from the new school year. Gizmodo reports that a notebook running Windows 10 S will load a user profile 15 seconds faster than it would on the same notebook running Windows 10 Pro. The Surface Laptop is already available for pre-orders, but it will only start shipping on June 15th.
