Upgrade the Surface Laptop to Windows 10 Pro for Free

The Surface Laptop starts at $999 and is available for preorder as of Tuesday.

The laptop, which Microsoft announced at an event in NY, weighs 2.76 pounds (1.25 kilograms), less than the comparable MacBook Air from Apple. This indicates that the Surface Laptop is a "laptop" in name only: it's really a thinner, more optimized Surface tablet formed into a notebook's form factor, complete with a lightweight OS to match.

The Surface Laptop is 14.5 millimeters thick and weighs 1.25 kilograms. Pre-orders start today, although the new laptops won't deliver or hit stores until June 15th.

Microsoft's (MSFT) newest laptop appears to be taking on not just Alphabet's (GOOGL) Google Chromebooks, as expected, but Apple's (AAPL) laptops as well.

Morris was a plus-seven at the time of his departure, and Crowder and Horford went on to have stellar games in his absence. At the same time , Porter and Thomas appeared to bang heads and Porter headed to the locker room bleeding from the nose.

Until then, the final thing you need to know is that while the Chromebook Pixel is currently available, it's now a couple of years out-of-date, with the most recent refresh coming in 2015.

The device is priced high considering it doesn't have a discrete graphics processor, said Bob O'Donnell, principal analyst at Technalysis Research.

But for Microsoft, it's also about fighting for a bigger piece of the lucrative education market - and the potential to get a new generation of consumers accustomed to its products.

During the Windows 10 S launch event, Microsoft showcased the operating system's superior boot times and increased performance, stating that Windows 10 S can run on less-powerful hardware than standard Windows 10. The Windows 10 S software is tied to the Windows Store, which means students can only run apps downloaded from the Store. That gives it functionality much like a Chromebook.

Panay said the Surface Laptop was created to provide college-age users with important features, such as long battery life, storage capabilities, display quality, and portability. Microsoft describes Windows 10 S as a version of Windows 10 that has been streamlined for simplicity, security and superior performance.

Panay says the device "is the most personal and balanced Surface we've ever made". He spent close to half an hour explaining the nitty-gritty: There are no hinges, bumpers or screws visible, and it has a smooth finish. That 13.5in screen with the 3:2 aspect ratio? It promises up to 14 hours of battery life and comes with up to 16GB RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage.
