The new method is designed for incredibly low-cost machines. Third-party programs can be installed. However, the typical Microsoft Store is missing.
Microsoft has announced a version of Windows 11 tailored exclusively for educational institutions; they claim that the stripped-down system would not strain assets and include several valuable changes. The widget area was removed from significant version 11 because Microsoft feared it would confuse pupils.
The Microsoft Store is also missing from the 11 SE, but third-party apps can still be installed on the interface. The system also backs up to OneDrive, and these backups are accessible offline, that is, without access to the Internet.
Programs in the new Windows start in full-screen mode by default, but students may utilize them side by side – in a single window. Google Chrome and Zoom are among the supported programs (both may be downloaded), but the business has not revealed the whole list.
According to Microsoft, Windows 11 SE will be accessible on less expensive computers. Acer, Asus, Dell, Dynabook, Fujitsu, HP, JK-IP, Lenovo, and Positivo will produce such devices. However, the purchase price has yet to be determined.
In addition, Microsoft will release a gadget with this interface, which will cost $249. The Surface Laptop SE’s base model has an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of eMMC storage, and an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) touchscreen.
Microsoft’s latest announcement may also be construed as a declaration of war. The company has been attempting for a long time to get into the market for less expensive notebooks, where Chromebooks and Chrome OS on such devices have previously dominated, but it has been unsuccessful.
