Microsoft is making waves this week by introducing the world to the new Surface Laptop, and it is quite a machine. Ever since the first Surface debuted in 2012, the Surface line of products has been met with success due to its innovative design and integration of touchscreen technology and optional keyboard/trackpad combo. As Microsoft’s first real step into the world of hardware, the Surface line has come very far, now offering the revered Surface Pro, the versatile Surface Book, and the captivating Surface Studio.

The new Surface Laptop captures the same spirit as those that have come before, improving in many respects and posing a real challenge to the Chromebook and MacBook Pro. The Surface laptop has been designed to be lightweight, powerful, long-lasting, and responsive with the latest Windows 10 OS, Windows 10 S (other versions of Windows 10 are also available).

FEATURES

Here is a short list of specs to give you a real taste of the new Surface Laptop:

The Surface Laptop was created to compete with the Google Chromebook and Apple Macbook Pro directly, particularly among the student demographic with its rollout of Windows 10 S. By combining the power of the Macbook Pro and the portability of the Chromebook, Microsoft has added its own features such as touchscreen capabilities and longer battery life to build what it is calling “the perfect college companion.”
