Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Laptop SE, Celeron N4120

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop SE is a ‘ChrEdgebook’ for students
Source: Mobile Syrup English EN→zh-CN
Still, it’s important to keep in mind that, like Chromebooks and Google services, the Laptop SE is, at its core, a vessel for Microsoft services. I also worry the Laptop SE might be too little, too late. Chromebooks have a strong foothold in schools – most students I know already have school-provided Chromebook they use. I’m sure the Laptop SE will find a place, but it may not unseat Google in the education battle.

60% Microsoft Surface Laptop SE Review: Just Get A Chromebook
Source: The Verge English EN→zh-CN
Ultimately, I think the main arguments for the Surface Laptop SE are its design and its repairability. It looks and feels several notches nicer than most clunky Windows laptops that schools are currently handing out. It’s capable of doing the work that an elementary school student might be doing. And I don’t want to undersell the replacable parts — that’s huge for IT departments, and it’s great to see Microsoft committing to such a big repairability effort. But in evaluating this device, customers will need to figure out how to balance the needs of its IT administrators with the needs of its teachers and students. That calculus may look different for every school. But the older a kid gets and the more internet-savvy they become, the more their load might be pushing this processor. There are Chromebooks and iPads out there with faster performance, faster boot time, and better battery life that are worth looking at as well. And at the end of the day, I’d urge schools to spend more money on larger-screened, higher-resolution devices if they can, because accessibility for all students is worth investing in.

Surface Laptop SE review: A Chromebook competitor, but Windows 11 SE isn’t a Chrome OS
Source: XDA Developers English EN→zh-CN
Windows 11 SE goes a long way toward addressing the needs of K-8 students. However, the way I see it, it does a better job of retaining school districts that already use Windows, rather than converting districts that have made the move to something like Chrome OS. The OS is more secure, it’s faster, and it gets better battery life than a regular version of Windows 11, but that’s still not an answer to why you should choose it over Google’s operating system. That’s a question that Microsoft has to answer. One possible answer is about what happens when a student gets to ninth grade. For me, that was when I took my first programming class (it was Quick Basic, and then Visual Basic 6 the following year). Before I spiral out of control into a vortex of nostalgia, let me say that this is the age where students might need something more than Chrome OS can offer. This could be the value proposition for raising students in the Windows ecosystem. As far as the hardware goes, it’s a lot better than I expected. Given the specs, I expected to want to break away from it as soon as I possibly could. That wasn’t the case.

这个屏幕尺寸对于平板来说略大,而对亚笔记本来说稍小。一些变形本采用了这个尺寸的屏幕。

大尺寸可以让屏幕有更高的分辨率。因而例如字体等的细节将会更丰富。不过另一方面,小屏幕的功耗会较低,而设备也会更轻盈小巧,售价更低。
