Microsoft may be contemplating a head-to-head war with Chromebooks, and its ammo may include a low-cost Surface laptop running a new, possibly stripped-down version of Windows 11 called Windows 11 SE. That SE suffix could stand for Special Edition, as it does in the case of the iPhone SE. According to a new study, the new Surface laptop will be a better option to the low-cost Chromebooks on the market.
According to Windows Central, the watered-down version of Surface will be called Surface Laptop SE and will be targeted at the education market. This laptop could have an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366×768. It may be powered by an Intel N1420 Celeron processor with up to 8GB of RAM.
The details of Windows 11 SE are not yet public, but if it is to function similarly to ChromeOS, it must have highly convenient features. Google Chromebooks are relatively easy to use, and they do not require any specific knowledge to download and install an application, unlike Windows, where you may still need to download an.EXE file to use an application. Microsoft has been working to make Windows easier to use for everyone, but it has yet to reach the level of ChromeOS.
