Microsoft Introduced Windows 10S for 'Students' along with a new Surface Book Design with Standard Clamshell Design
On March 17, Patently Apple posted a report titled "Microsoft may introduce a New Surface Book without their Famed Tablet Mode." While a Digitimes report described the new Microsoft notebook having a standard clamshell design, I argued that this would likely be an extended Surface Book edition and not one eliminating their 2-in-1 Surface Book model. Earlier today Microsoft did indeed launch a new Surface family notebook that is cloud optimized with "Windows 10S" for "Students." And yes, it's a new model rather than eliminating their pro Surface Book.
The Formal Introduction for New Microsoft Notebook
Basic Specs: 13.5" PixelSense display with 3.4 million pixels that Microsoft claims is the thinnest notebook ever created; offers 14.5 hours battery life; comes in four colors: platinum, burgundy, cobalt blue, and graphite gold, and come in under 3 pounds in weight; and starts at $999 for the Core i5 version with 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD – and will ship beginning on June 15.
