HP and Acer have both just announced their own devices designed to run Windows 10 S, Microsoft’s new custom Windows 10 operating system designed for schools.
Acer has revealed a new iteration of their TravelMate Spin B1 Convertible which comes with a stylus and has a RRP of $299, down from the regular model’s $399. It has an 11.6inch touchscreen, 1080p display, 64GB of storage, and 4GB of RAM.
HP’s Windows 10 S device is a remix of the ProBook x360 Education Edition which also has 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM and is selling for $299 but is limited with an 11.6inch, 1366 x 768 screen. The regular model is $329 which does make the Windows 10 S edition feel a bit redundant.
Windows 10 S is a new version of Windows 10 that’s designed for schools and is limited to running only apps made available within the Windows Store. Microsoft announced their own devices made to work with Windows 10 S, the Surface Laptop, last night during a special presentation.
