The Microsoft Surface Laptop is a beautiful piece of engineering. Many are saying that it’s probably the best built Windows laptop to date. Paired with its sleek lines and minimalist design, the Surface Laptop will certainly turn heads when you whip it out in your local Starbucks (especially that burgundy one).
But the problem with precision machining and having everything sealed away is often that these devices are difficult to repair, even by professionals, let alone in a DIY setting. In fact, according to iFixit, it’s impossible to repair without completely destroying it.
Shortly after Apple showed off their new space-gray Magic Keyboard, Microsoft‘s flexing their keyboard muscles with the release of their brand new keyboard. It’s called the Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID and I think you already know what its standout feature is.
Microsoft isn’t the only one releasing a slew of new devices. Huawei‘s also got some toys to show us and they’re an update to the company’s previous first Windows 10 device, the MateBook. This time, there are three variants — called the MateBook X, MateBook E and MateBook D — and they’re all a little different from each other.
Microsoft has made probably the most important refresh, at least in their hardware division, of the year and first impressions are a little lukewarm. Their updated device is called the Surface Pro (so they’ve dropped the numbering scheme) and although it seems like a pretty good upgrade overall, there are one or two big design choices that leave us befuddled.
OK. We thought this would be pretty obvious, but clearly there are more vulnerable people out there than we thought. In any case, here’s a super helpful PSA:
The WhatsApp messages regarding WannaCry affecting online transactions and spreading through WhatsApp are FAKE.
After introducing the Surface Laptop, Microsoft is expected to release a successor to its Surface Pro 4 convertible tablet next week. Serial leakster @evleaks once again has dropped early details of the upcoming device and it will be simply known as the Surface Pro.
Besides the launch of some stunning new hardware, perhaps the most important thing about Microsoft‘s event was the launch of Windows 10 S. However, its similarities with a previous attempt of a similar vein — which failed spectacularly, by the way — does raise some worrying questions.
Has Microsoft learned from past mistakes?
Microsoft just unveiled its latest laptop — aptly named the Surface Laptop — and it sits somewhere between the tablet-like Surface Pro and the 2-in-1 convertible Surface Book. And that’s a sweet spot most will be very happy with because that means it’s just a laptop without the complications of any detachable bits.
In fact, being “without complications” seems to be a recurring theme with this new Windows device.
Microsoft is poised to launch a brand new device at their event in New York on the 2nd of May. And, as with almost all device launches, the leaks have begun to trickle out. Well, gush out, actually as two Twitter users (well-known for their tech leaks) share images of Microsoft’s brand new laptop.
It’s called the Surface Laptop and if that name gets you excited, you might want to hold your horses.
Yes, that’s right. Now YOU will be able to decide when your Windows will update. Windows 10 will not automatically take control of your computer and reset it at the worst possible moments anymore.
Here’s how the Windows 10 Creators Update will handle the system update:
