Microsoft is launching a new Surface-branded device today: the Surface Laptop.
It’s a 13.5-inch laptop that’s designed to work with the company’s new Windows 10 S operating system.
Microsoft’s true Surface Laptop uses a fabric alcantara keyboard just like its premium Surface Pro 4 keyboard, with a 1.5mm travel for the backlit keys. A teaser video for the device shows it’s clearly designed to be a high-end device to promote this new Windows 10 S operating system. As it runs Windows 10 S, the only apps available will be from the Windows Store unless you opt to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.
Microsoft is starting preorders for the Surface Laptop today, priced starting at $999 for the Core i5 version with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage. The Surface Laptop will start shipping on June 15th.
