Where form meets function

It looks like a new Microsoft laptop could be on the way. Last night, Twitter user @h0x0d shared some leaked images of a new Surface laptop that look pretty legitimate.

The laptop appears to feature a 13.5-inch PixelSense display and an Alcantara-covered keyboard, alongside a USB port, mini DisplayPort, and a power connector — though it looks like the SB Type-C port has been dropped.  The machine is said to arrive in four colors: “Platinum,” “Burgundy,” “Cobalt Blue” and “Graphite Gold.”

Interestingly, the laptop will apparently run on Windows 10 S, a cloud-optimized operating system that will only run apps from the Microsoft store. It looks like this new laptop is Microsoft’s response to the increasing popularity of both the Google Chromebook and Google’s Chrome OS.

The Surface is expected to be officially announced at today’s #MicrosoftEDU event, so pay close attention to Twitter for more developments.
