Laptops for education
When Microsoft unveiled Windows 10S, a new version of Windows 10 tailored to the needs of education, the company also unveiled a new device (the Surface Laptop) that will run the operating system. But Microsoft will have plenty of company. HP, Dell, Samsung, Asus, Acer, Fujitsu and Toshiba are also planning Windows 10S laptops (nothing from Lenovo so far). Many of the laptops have similar specs to those of Chromebooks—which Windows 10S intends to compete with in schools—though not all of them do.
Microsoft said that Windows 10S will be available this summer, but didn't give a specific date. Pricing has also not been released for all of the devices, though Microsoft disclosed that the new devices will start at US$189. The Surface Laptop will be considerably higher than the others, starting at A$1499.
In the following slides, we've rounded up the key details on eight Windows 10S laptops that were disclosed by Microsoft this month.
