Soon a Microsoft Surface Laptop equipped with a special edition of Windows 11 for the education sector? This is what the Windows Central site evokes with a device codenamed Tenjin likely to be marketed as Surface Laptop SE and running Windows 11 SE.
SE could mean Student Edition Where School Edition. With plastic chassis, the Surface Laptop SE would be powered by an Intel Celeron N4120 processor associated with 8 GB RAM. It would display on an 11.6-inch screen with a definition of 1366 x 768 pixels.
The laptop would have a USB-A port, a USB-C port and a jack for audio. So it should be cheap and for Microsoft’s further attempt to compete with the Chromebook with Chrome OS.
A rumor for the moment
Regarding Windows 11 SE… Windows Central sources are less talkative, except for optimizations and features designed for schools and device deployment.
It could end up being a successor to the much-loved Windows 10 S mode that only runs apps from the Microsoft Store.
The vagueness reigns over this possible SE edition of Windows 11. It had already been spotted in the past, but with the assumption that it was intended for companies and without access to the Microsoft Store. It would now be very strange with the opening known by the Microsoft Store, including for Win32 applications.
