Surface Family

So, Microsoft has added a new member to their Surface family.  The product name is the Surface Laptop, it is priced at $999.  Now that price puts it in the premium bracket competing with the MacBook Air directly.  But I feel it’s a better bur than the MBAir, unless Apple gives us a new improved version.   Anyway, this new addition to the line will be available June 15th.   SurfaceLPTP2Now, some say that Microsoft is trying to get back into the classroom with this machine.  Currently, Google is found in a lot of school districts with the Chromebook, based on it’s cheaper price (around $200 per unit).  Microsoft is making a configuration of the laptop for schools that is priced at approximately $189.  Now, with this configuration of the machine it will a reworked version of Windows 10.  This is the new operating system from Microsoft is called Windows 10S, basically it is for the classroom.  I’m disappointed that Microsoft didn’t include a USB type-C port.  All things aside I really like the new model and I can’t wait to get my hands on one.  But I have recently went out and bought a new laptop already the Dell XPS 15.  So, as of right now I’m not in the market for a new laptop.  Although, I always love in tech.  I am still waiting to see if there is a new Surface Pro 5 on the horizon.  Pre-orders are available here, until then I will be rock the Surface 3.
