For years, the Apple MacBook Air has been one of the most desirable computers in homes and on school campuses. The the 13-inch version hasn't been updated since 2015, and that has incoming students and their parents looking at alternatives like the Microsoft Surface Laptop.
数年以来,苹果公司的MacBook Air一直是最受欢迎的笔记本电脑之一,无论居家使用还是在学校使用都很方便。自2015年以来,这款笔记本13英寸的版本就没有更新过了,这就促使一波一波新学子和家属开始寻找其他的替代品,比如微软公司的Surface Laptop笔记本电脑。

Earlier this month, it was rumored that the Surface Laptop would be a Chromebook killer, going after the education market with low-priced units. What we actually got was a third-party Windows 10 S laptop from traditional PC manufacturers like Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Samsung, and Toshiba. Priced around $299 with the centrally administered Windows 10 S operating system, these are obviously the systems aimed at supplanting Chromebooks in schools.
本月前日,有业内人士透露,Surface Laptop笔记本会成为秒杀Chromebook的新机型。事实上这是一款第三方制造商生产的微软10 S系统笔记本。制造商是宏碁,华硕,戴尔,HP,三星,东芝等传统的笔记本电脑制造商。Surface Laptop的预装系统是面向学生的版本Windows 10 S,显然意在排挤Chromebook在学生市场里的份额。

The Surface Laptop starts at $999, and comes with more robust components like an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 16GB RAM, up to 512GB SSD storage, and an option to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free. Along with its 13.5-inch screen and comfortable keyboard, these specs line up closer to the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch than any Chromebook.
Surface Laptop最初售价为999美元,配置了第七代Intel i5、i7处理器,内存为科可拓展到16G,容量可拓展到512G,可谓配置高端。屏幕尺寸为13.5英寸,键盘操作舒适,这些配置比其他任何版本的Chromebook都更能接近苹果MacBook Air 13英寸版的水准。
