Microsoft today announced the new Surface Laptop. They built Surface Laptop for two reasons: 1) refresh the classic laptop form factor for college students; 2) make a Surface that works seamlessly to showcase the best of Windows 10 S. Surface perfectly blends fabric and function, power and portability, beauty and performance. Check out the intro video above.
