Microsoft seems to want to compete with Chromebooks with its newest product, the Surface Laptop SE. The reason is that this laptop, which is priced at $249 (about ₦103,000 in Nigeria), comes with various benefits, especially for students.
If the Chromebook uses the ChromeOS operating system, then the Surface Laptop SE also uses a special operating system, i.e Windows 11 SE which is deliberately made for low-end laptops.

Microsoft Surface Laptop SE Specifications and Features
In terms of design, Microsoft looks pretty good at presenting a minimalist appearance on this $249 laptop. Certainly, the body of this laptop still uses a fairly thick plastic material.
In addition, the 11.6-inch screen on this laptop still comes with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is also the first Surface device to come with this aspect ratio considering that so far, laptops made by Microsoft have an aspect ratio of 3:2.
Entering the storage and processor, there is an Intel Celeron N4020 or N4120 processor combined with 4GB/8GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB eMMC storage.
To support online learning, Microsoft presents a 1MP front camera that supports 720p resolution. There is also one USB-A port, one USB-C port, a power connector, and a headphone jack.
Although the specifications are quite economical, we can’t expect much from a laptop that is priced cheaply, especially since the Surface Laptop SE is also made for students who don’t use many heavy applications for the learning process.
