A computer can compete with a Chromebook.
The new laptop, codenamed Tenjin, will have a fully plastic case, an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366×768, an Intel Celeron N4120 processor and up to 8 GB of RAM, Windows Central writes, citing sources.
It will have a full-size keyboard, one USB-A and USB-C port each, and headphone and charging jacks.
The Windows 11 SE operating system was designed specifically for low-cost computers and offers special parameters and functions for educational institutions.
It is assumed that Tenjin will be produced under the Surface Laptop brand or under the name Laptop SE. The device will be cheaper than the Surface Laptop Go, which starts at $549. To compete with low-cost Chromebooks from HP, Dell and Lenovo, it can cost less than $400.
Microsoft did not respond to the Windows Central request. According to sources, the computer is almost ready to work, it can be presented before the end of the year.
