Upgrade the Surface Laptop to Windows 10 Pro for Free

With Microsoft Windows 10 S, users can download apps directly from the Windows Store. However, the system is also suitable for other users who want access to Microsoft tools and who are used to downloading apps from the Windows Store. This restriction will ensure consistent performance and better security, Myerson explained.

Devices running Window 10 S, including the upcoming Surface Laptop, will only be able to run apps downloaded from the Windows Store, in exchange for a variety of great features.

The new preview of Office contains the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps which are now delivered and updated from the Microsoft Store for Education. It will be free for any current PCs using Windows Pro. Those new PCs will come with Office 365 for education and a subscription to Minecraft: Education Edition. The Office Apps will be now available in Preview version this June with the general release planned later this year.

Panay says the device "is the most personal and balanced Surface we've ever made". Nevertheless, the device is already on pre-order from the Microsoft Store. The Redmond giant also introduced its Chrome OS rival in the form of Windows 10 S at the event. The new laptop weighs 2.76 pounds embedded with 4GB of RAM.

Although I only spent a few minutes with the new Surface Laptop, it was quite light given its size, and its 3.4 million-pixel display renders high-resolution visuals. Would you rather have a Surface Pro 5? Unlike other Surface models, it does not run the traditional version of Windows.

The company headquartered in Redmond, Washington state, in northwestern US, claimed at an event in New York City that the new PC is thinner, lighter and faster, with better battery life, display quality, storage and portability, and is available for pre-order starting Tuesday.

The 16GB RAM + 512GB SSD version, which is also available in the colour Platinum will cost $2,199.

Microsoft has unveiled a new version of Windows 10 called Windows 10 S. This is Microsoft's answer to Chrome OS, and the new streamlined version of Windows 10 is being targeted mainly at students. Unlike the Surface Book, the display of the Surface Laptop is not detachable.
