Microsoft has plans for a Surface Netbook that uses Chromebook-type technology. This is likely to be difficult to understand.
Windows Central reports that Microsoft is currently developing a notebook for schools and other educational institutions. A special version of Windows 11 should be included with the device, currently under development as Windows 11 SE.
This is likely a special variant that Microsoft has created for schools. With it, Microsoft plans to compete more with Chromebooks with Google Chrome OS. These Chromebooks are very popular in the USA. The new Microsoft notebook codenamed “Tenjin”, should have a similar price.
There is talk of an HD display measuring 11.6 inches and featuring 1366×768 pixels. This would be accompanied by a TN panel. The old Intel Celeron N4120 “Gemini Lake”, with its four x86 cores, and one that is incredibly slow by modern standards, will power the system. There are at least eight gigabytes worth of RAM in the CPU. The internal storage is connected probably via eMMC. This display does not appear to live up to the Surface brand’s claims.
A USB-A and USB-C ports, a headphone socket, and a power connection are all included. This means that there will likely not be a Surface Connect port. Microsoft plans to price the Surface Laptop SE “Tenjin”, at the same level as other Chromebooks. It is expected that sales of the Surface Laptop “SE” and “Tenjin” will be limited to orders placed by educational institutions. Therefore, regular retail availability is not possible.
The Surface Laptop “SE” is currently under development. If Microsoft does not make any changes to its plans, the introduction of the Surface Laptop “SE” is expected in this year.
