“This new laptop is code-named Tenjin and features a fully plastic exterior, a 1366×768 11.6-inch display, an Intel Celeron N4120, and up to 8GB RAM. This is a no-frills laptop designed to be as low-cost as possible, built for student-use in a classroom environment.”
So, what’s the issue in this situation? The most straightforward answer may be the best. Microsoft has announced its Surface Go three this year and has models targeted to the lower price point of the market, with an Intel Pentium 6500Y variant that comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC.
Surface Go Surface Go, of course, is constructed around the 2-in-1 design similar to Surface Pro. Surface Pro, which means that the keyboard is an extra purchase.
Let it be for a while because Microsoft has an option called the Surface Laptop Go, a reduced version of the popular Surface Laptop. The version that is currently available, Laptop Go, was launched 12 months ago. Its lowest specs are an Intel Core i5-1035G1.
There is a clear gap on the lower portion of laptop sales, the cheapest educational device running a Celeron processor. While many may think that this will be inadequate for a full version of Windows 11, the discussions about this K-12 laptop suggest the possibility of a stripped-down edition for Windows 11 (presumptively named Windows 11 SE), which will be able to complement it with equipment… A strategy that Microsoft has considered before using Windows 10 S.
What makes Microsoft seek to enter the market for K-12 education by offering a cheap laptop with a stripped-back version of Windows? Because Google already has a presence by providing its Chromebook as well as the Chromebook with its partners.
If Microsoft can demonstrate that there is demand for a new design – something that the Surface brand has always been able to do and more – you can expect the present Chromebook manufacturers to launch similar devices running Windows 11 SE soon.
