New Microsoft Surface Laptop: Specs, Design and New Windows 10 OS

Leaked on Monday night and officially announced and introduced on Tuesday at Microsoft's EDU event, the news Surface Laptop serves as the flagship device that will run Windows 10 S, an operating system that is specifically aimed at the education industry, according to Engadget. The latest 13.5-inch addition to the company's Surface lineup is created to work with the company's new Windows 10 S operating system that was also unveiled alongside the device.

The device weighs 2.76 pounds and is made of plastic, metal, and Alcantara fabric, which covers the backlit keyboard like on the Surface Pro 4. The said laptop however, is pretty expensive at $999 and you can add a couple hundred bucks to grab a full-fledged Mac. Microsoft's other portable Surface devices include the Surface Pro, which is a tablet, and the Surface Book, which is a 2-in-1.

The Microsoft Surface laptop is a 13.5-inch ultrabook which is available with a 2256 x 1506 panel and narrow bezel design. Microsoft claims that, Microsoft Surface Laptop is thinner, lighter than any MacBook Air or Pro in the market.

The Duke of Edinburgh, who turns 96 on June 10, is the longest-serving consort in British history, and is still in good health. The meeting was called somewhat last minute, leading many to fear that some actual emergency was taking place at the palace.

Microsoft is focusing on security and superior performance with the Windows 10 S operating system as applications will be delivered via the Windows Store on the Surface Laptop, ensuring that they are Microsoft-verified.

Microsoft says the Surface Laptop will last up to 14 hours per battery charge, thanks to Intel's latest low-power components and energy-efficient software. The default search provider in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer in Windows 10 S can not be changed.

The latest version of Microsoft's OS is stripped back and locked down. Available for pre-order today, the laptop will start shipping June 15.
