It can be more; less, as is the case, is a disadvantage from where it is coming from. I just looked at the prices in Europe and it boggles the mind how anybody would buy this in the first place and opt to stay with the locked down Windows 10 S (even more so as Bing in Europe delivers worse results than Google), but whatever.

And the Google Chromebook Pixel? Well, it was a ridiculous offer, what can I say? One company making a mistake doesn't justify others making the same.

I know "allowing different default applications is an OS functionality". What I was implying is that you could get around the locked default browser by manually copying (where possible) the URL from the source you're using - e-mail, document, another application, and pasting it in a third party browser (if any become available on the Windows Store, that is), but that isn't practical with repeated use.

I'm not interested in specifying what I meant in each statement, so I'm done chatting.

Pricing is available from Microsoft for the ridiculously expensive Surface Laptop - https://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/productID.5102691100/VID.5102691200/config.true/

Er... ok, I guess? There isn't more to chat about anyway.

I linked to the prices in Europe because that's where I am, but thanks for posting a link to the US prices.

I didn't mean to come off as rude in my last reply. I feel like we're explaining our statements instead of carrying on with the conversation.

I shared the Microsoft pre-order price because the guru3d link seemed really high. Especially since the Euro is more valuable than the Dollar.

Oh, ok, glad we sorted that out. But still, I think we've covered everything anyway.

As to the prices, believe me, they are higher in Europe for a few years now, so those quotes make 100% sense to me. A GTX 1070 for example costs at least 400 €, in some places it actually starts at 450+ €.

Next time you're at the office, tell the head of your IT department to switch over to Linux and argue that, since it's free, it will save money. thumb.gif

A competitor for Chrome OS? Why even bother? Not like anyone uses it anyway

It is a pretty good company. They are kinda forced to do stuff like this to stay competitive.

Is bad to leave something running unopposed.

This was my thought too. We already saw a DOA 'Windows Lite' in the not too distant past.

Options are a good thing, and while none of us here are the target market for this, it has its place...unfortunately for MS, that place is already slap full of chromebooks and andriod tablets. The < $200 device market is going to be a hard one for MS to break into.
