Microsoft Surface Laptop is finally available in the UAE starting next week

The Windows answer to Chromebooks

This neat all-metal notebook runs Windows 10 S, a cut-down version of the eponymous OS built from the ground up for schools and education. It only runs teacher-approved apps available on the Windows Store, but looks like a regular Windows desktop.

The 1.25kg, 14mm thick ultraportable should squeeze into a book bag, and that 13.5in Full HD display can handle Netflix binging as well as work and web browsing.

Originally announced in the US last year, the carpeted Surface Laptop has taken its sweet time reaching our shores but it’s finally coming to the UAE next week. It’ll be hitting stores from 15 March, complete with alcantara keyboard. At US$1145, though, don’t expect it to take on the might of Google’s classroom-friendly Chromebooks.
