This afternoon, Microsoft will host its spring event soon to present among other things, the Surface Laptop with Windows 10 S (Microsoft Surface S). The latter is the multi-faceted version of the “cloud operating system”, which works exclusively with the Windows Store and its related apps.
It should certainly be a surprise, but the well-known Microsoft observer WalkingCat alias @ h0x0d has corrupted the Redmonder company this thoroughly. Because in the run-up to the Microsoft event, through this many relevant information about the surface laptop from Microsoft leaked, first and foremost numerous pictures.
Microsoft Surface S
The surface laptop is probably best described as a Chromebook competitor, especially with regard to OS and use of the software. However, one should not associate the term Chromebook in this context with “favorable”, the surface laptop should be compared with the Google pixel. Microsoft is therefore likely to produce a high-end model for Windows 10 S and leave its OEM partners to the cheaper mass market.
However, the focus of the surface laptops is still to be on the school and student level, but nothing is known at the moment. The device is supposed to bring a 13.5 inch pixelSense screen with 3.4 million pixels.
The Surface Laptop weighs 1.25 kilograms according to WalkingCat and is between 9.9 and 14.47 millimeters thick. The notebook will be available in four color versions: Platinum, Burgundy, Cobalt Blue and Graphite Gold. The keyboard is supposed to be coated with Alcantara, this high-tech fiber has already been used in a version of the type cover for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 .
The Microsoft expert has no more information to offer, but already there is a fairly clear picture of the device. And more details are already in a few hours, the event starts at 3.30 pm of our time.
Stay tuned for more leaks and info.
