With an even cheaper Surface Laptop based on a slimmed-down Windows 11 SE (“Student Edition”), Microsoft is targeting the extremely lucrative educational sector, particularly in the USA. The 11.6 “notebook developed under the code name” Tenjin “is to be priced in below the Surface Laptop Go.

As Windows Central reports, the “Tenjin” project will compete against the Chromebooks from Google, especially in the USA, which are very successful in the education sector. The website also wants to know the technical specifications from “insider sources”.

Gemini Lake Refresh and 8 GB LPDDR4

Of the hardware currently in prospect, the “Tenjin” project clearly plays in the “low-cost league” because it is supposed to be based on an Intel Celeron N4210 (“Gemini Lake Refresh”), which has a TDP of 6 watts with four cores works without HT and 1.1 to 2.6 GHz.

The mobile CPU has an integrated GPU of the type Intel HD 600 with 12 compute units and is flanked by a total of 8 GB LPDDR4 and up to 64 GB flash memory (eMMC). The display measures 11.6 inches (29.5 cm) and has a comparatively low resolution of 1,366 × 768 pixels and a point density of 135 ppi.

In terms of price, measured in terms of hardware and the envisaged area of ​​application, the student notebook is to be offered significantly below the Surface Laptop Go, which is currently changing hands for around 590 euros. Windows Central cites a price of 400 US dollars as the target for the “Surface Laptop SE”.

Windows 11 SE for schoolchildren and students

The “Tenjin” project is to be part of Microsoft’s “K-12” education program and is based on a significantly slimmed-down Windows 11 SE (“Student Edition”), which has been specially adapted to the needs of schoolchildren and students.

The website speaks of expanded options for adapting the new operating system specifically for low-end hardware and setting it up for certain user groups in the classroom.
