Microsoft is reportedly prepping to launch Windows 11 SE, a new operating system for low-cost Surface laptops. As per a report from WindowsCentral, a new Surface laptop, possibly dubbed “Surface Laptop SE” is also in the pipeline and it will run the ostensible Windows 11 SE.
The report doesn’t go into detail on the new operating system but does talk about the laptop that will run this new OS. The tech publication cites its sources and reports that the Laptop SE is internally codenamed 'Tenjin' and features a fully plastic exterior. It features a 1366x768 display and has Intel Celeron N4120 under the hood with up to 8GB RAM.
The Surface Laptop SE features a full-sized keyboard and trackpad, as per the report. Also, it gets one USB-A port, one USB-C port, a headphone jack, and a barrel-style AC port.
The report goes on to state that the laptop running the supposed Windows 11 SE will specifically target K-12 education. This laptop is expected to cost around Surface Go laptop and compete against the likes of similarly priced Chromebooks from Dell, Lenovo, and HP.
It is currently unknown when Microsoft plans to launch this new Surface Laptop and Windows 11 SE. In fact, we are yet to gather something substantial that could prove the existence of such a laptop that is running a newly designed OS. And, well, if the given information is true, we might hear about it soon.
