Earlier this week, Microsoft announced a new addition to the Microsoft Surface line, the Microsoft Surface Laptop. The Surface Laptop claims to be a personal computer with great performance, with its slogan, “Performance made personal.”

The Microsoft Surface Laptop is designed for Windows 10 S, Microsoft’s new operating system. Windows 10 S is a take on Google’s Chromebooks and Chrome OS. It is like a stripped-down version of Windows 10. It only lets you use apps from the Windows Store that is verified by Microsoft, it has the default browser set as Microsoft Edge and has a built-in antivirus program. All this adds up to a fast boot time and great performance that lasts. This leads me to conclude that the Microsoft Surface Laptop is targeted towards schools and students, just like Chromebooks.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop is targeted towards schools and students, just like Chromebooks.

Although the Microsoft Surface Laptop comes in Windows 10 S, you can still upgrade your operating system to Windows 10 Professional. This is probably going to be the deciding factor of whether or not a person will buy it because Windows 10 S doesn’t let you do what a regular computer can do.
