Pixel phones or Surface laptops are good products, but at a very high price that is out of the reach of students and people with mileurista salaries.
According to the web Windows Central, which cites its own sources, Microsoft intends to fix this with the launch of a cheap Surface laptop, around 300 or 350 euros, with a new Windows 11 SE operating system, focused on students.
According to Windows Central, this cheap Surface laptop has a code name Tenjin, and would have a plastic casing with an 11.6-inch screen, and resolution 1,366×768 pixels.
I would also use Intel Celeron N4120 processor with up to 8GB RAM, full keyboard, trackpad, USB Type A and C connectors, and headphone jack.
Microsoft would have focused it on students between 7 and 19 years old, which is why the hardware has been chosen to work with text-based educational applications, keeping the price to a minimum.
Would also premiere a new operating system called Windows 11 SE, which would have a similar function to ChromeOS, changing Google’s cloud applications for Microsoft’s: Edge browser, free Office online, One Drive, etc.
East cheap surface laptop would be thought for compete with cheap Chromebooks, and would be priced below $ 400.
According to Windows Central sources, the Tenjin project is now ready to be commercialized, and it could go on sale now, before the end of the year.
Everything points to what Microsoft will offer it in batches to schools and institutes, by signing educational agreements.
It is certainly a good and necessary initiative, but we would like to see something similar outside the educational market, available to all users.
