Microsoft takes on Apple with new $999 Surface Laptop

Microsoft is pitching the Surface Laptop as flawless for college students - in line with the educational focus of its event on Tuesday in New York City.

Finally, if you're a non-education customer buying a Surface Laptop, you'll be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for $49.

The laptop has one USB 3.0 port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, mini DisplayPort connection as well as SurfaceConnection for further connectivity. Snap-on keyboards for the Surface Pro line and the hybrid Surface Book were just stepping stones between the Surface tablets and what Microsoft announced today, the Surface Laptop.

Strong 6.2 magnitude natural disaster jolts parts of Yukon and northwestern BC
This morning's two earthquakes were magnitude 6.2 and 6.3, according to the Alaska Earthquake Center . Geological Survey's website, residents as far south as Petersburg reported feeling the earthquakes.

Microsoft unveiled its Surface Laptop at an education-focused event in New York City, where it also introduced its Windows 10 S operating system.

Another image shared showed that the laptop will be available in four colors: Platinum, Cobalt Blue, Burgundy, and Graphite Gold.

Engadget added that there are no visible speaker holes or grills on the Surface Laptop because they have been fitted behind the keys, "which Panay claims delivers a more enveloping sound", wrote Engadget. A release date of June 18 is being mooted, although that will no doubt be confirmed or denied later today. The 13.5-inch laptop gets 14.5 hours of battery life, weighs just 2.76 pounds and features a fabric keyboard. It's obvious that Microsoft is pricing their hardware higher than their PC partners so as not to disturb their market.

Bills decline to pick up 5th-year option on Watkins contract
Watkins will consequently become a free agent after this coming season and will be one of the top names entering free agency. That amount would have been guaranteed only for injury until next March, when it would have become fully guaranteed.

Windows 10 S is quite possibly a variant of Windows 10 Cloud for students. But there is a little difference as the new device will come with the streamlined Windows 10 S, a new but restricted version of Windows that uses apps from the Windows Store.

Microsoft said new education PCs running Windows 10 S will start at $189, a bit more than the cheapest Chromebooks. "This is the thinnest LDC touch model every created and put into a laptop", says Panay, complete with 3.4 million pixels.

If you try to install a piece of software that isn't in the Microsoft Store, Windows will suggest an alternative that can be installed, Myerson said.
