Microsoft announces launching smaller 12.5-inch Surface Laptop for the holidays
Microsoft is reportedly getting ready to launch a smaller Surface Laptop come end of the year. Windows Central says that Microsoft is manufacturing a more lightweight version of the Surface Laptop with a smaller 12.5-inch display. This new model will reportedly come with an Intel’s 10th Gen Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The smaller Surface Laptop is made for students, and it will be running Windows 10 in S Mode.
There are rumours that Microsoft Surface Laptop will sell between $500 and $600, making it an affordable option for low-budget customers. It appears to be positioned as the Surface Go equivalent to the Surface Pro, as a smaller and more budget-friendly clamshell laptop.
With always the case of Surface devices, Microsoft will likely offer RAM and storage upgrades. We’ve discovered in the past that the base model Surface Go with just 4GB of RAM couldn’t do more like browsing and app tasks as the upgraded 8GB of RAM model.
Microsoft will possibly have some type of Surface virtual event or announcement in October this year, for this new Surface Laptop and other hardware refreshes and accessories.
