Chromebooks have been on the rise in the past few months among the students in the US. They are even more popular than Windows laptops and iPads. Surprisingly NOT, Microsoft finally takes this challenge and comes up with its own hardware. This new 'Chromebook killer' from Microsoft will likely be announced by the company next month.

So yes, the recent reports suggest that Microsoft will be unveiling the new low-cost laptop this May. But despite being a low-cost notebook, according to Venture Beat, this Microsoft's new laptop will 'do more than Surface tablet'.

One thing that separates this laptop with other Windows notebooks around is definitely its platform. So it will be running on Windows Cloud 10, as opposed to the full-fledged Windows 10 that is found running on most of regular laptops these days.

The great thing about this OS is, Windows Cloud 10 will be able to run apps that are available on Windows store. So this is pretty similar with the Chrome OS that's also capable to run Android apps on Chrome web store.

As mentioned above, this new Microsoft's low-cost laptop will be aimed at the place where Chromebooks are really popular in right now, which is in education market. And that means the schools and colleges in the US.

Rumor has it that Microsoft will likely name this new hardware as 'CloudBook'. But this probably will not come into fruition given Microsoft's history of not telling anyone about the new products that it's about to announce, which happened a few years ago when Microsoft managed to keep its first Surface tablets secret for a long time before it finally unveiled it to the public.

Microsoft's new low-cost laptop will likely be introduced next month at Microsoft's education-focused hardware and software event, according to rumors.

Well, if you've been living in the cave lately, so the PC market has been on the struggle bus lately. The shipments of PCs in the US (from notebooks, desktops and workstations) has been declining compared to last year.

The PC shipments globally might see an increase during the first quarter of 2017. But the increase was only 0.6%, which clearly is a bad sign for PC manufacturers out there.

Releasing the low-cost laptop is probably one of the best decisions that Microsoft takes especially if this company still wants to be competitive in the US against Chromebooks and iPads.
