Microsoft ‘working’ on a budget 12.5-inch Surface laptop

Microsoft is reportedly working on a new Surface Laptop codenamed Sparti that will be more affordable than existing models.

The entry-level model of the affordable Surface Laptop is likely to come with a 12.5-inch display, 4GB RAM, 10th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 64GB storage.

This model is expected to be priced somewhere between $500 and $600, reports WindowsCentral.

The device will run Windows 10 in S Mode, which means only Microsoft Store apps and Edge for safe browsing.

According to the report, ‘Sparti’ is going to be Microsoft’s answer to the Google Pixelbook Go.

Surface Laptop is a premium thin and light laptop from Microsoft. Right now, the Surface Laptop lineup starts at $999 and goes all the way up to $2799.

The tech giant is expected to announce a slate of new products next month and “Sparti” may be among those, making it available in time for the holidays.
