However, Microsoft has a specific userbase in its mind with this Surface device. The report points out this device will run on Windows 10 in S Mode. With this version, users will only be able to access apps available on Microsoft Store and use Edge web browser. Which is why, it is suggested the company will be targeting students with this affordable Surface laptop. And with its budget price tag, Microsoft could finally have an able challenger to the Google Chromebooks. But just because the Surface device will be affordable doesn’t mean Microsoft will cut some corners. The report assures us the device will carry a premium design touch and made with lightweight materials. Also Read - Microsoft rolls out improved video calling feature for Surface Pro X

Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer to stop Flash support

Microsoft gave the world its deadline to end support for Flash, which is just a few months away now. The company had announced in 2017, that by end of 2020, its web browsers Edge and Internet Explorer won’t be supporting the Adobe tool. Adobe Flash used to be an integral part of the browser ecosystem. But with the introduction of HTML 5 web standards, Flash are slowly but surely lost its impact and value.
