Hardware Event by Microsoft on 2nd May

Hardware Event by Microsoft on 2nd May

If these machines need a full, or close to full Windows license, they might end up being a notch more expensive than Chromebooks, which start at about $200.

And rather than run good old Windows 10, the new product could run something called Windows 10 Cloud, which reportedly will only be able to run apps that you can find in the Windows Store, unless you change a certain peference in Settings.

Microsoft Corporate Vice President Panos Panay introduces a new laptop titled the Microsoft Surface Book at a media event for new Microsoft products on October 6, 2015 in New York City. "Windows 7 keeps giving a warning that my Intel Core i7 (7700k) processor is not supported", reported someone tagged as DenverBraganaza, in a message posted Tuesday to Microsoft's support forum.

Starting from the hardware side of things, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) might want to unveil a successor to its Surface 3, which has rave reviews as a student tablet.

Now, the service has been given a major expansion with the new Dynamic Lock feature, which links to your smartphone to secure your device when you're away from the PC. Additional features are also added such as Night Mode, better Cortana and Edge browser, and more. The event will be held in the city of NY. However, according to Business Insider, sources close to the company say that it is unlikely for Microsoft to launch Surface Pro 5 in that event.

National Football League mock draft: Sports Illustrated gives Browns dream scenario
Cleveland is in a unique position because of how many draft picks they own in the next two drafts. The Browns pick first and 12th in the first round of the draft on April 27.


Microsoft has now officially announced that it will be holding an event on May 2. Of course, we can expect to see upgrades later in the year but the Surface Pro 5 isn't making its debut on May 2.

According to Paul Thurrott's blogspot, the Windows 10 Creators Update certainly has its highs and lows.

This includes links to websites you most recently visited using Microsoft edge, or documents you created via Sharepoint, meaning there's no need to scrabble around for the last items you used.

Windows 10's own browser has suffered in the past few years, not least from its unfortunate association with Microsoft's very bad Internet Explorer. OneCore is a set of APIs (application programming interfaces) and DDIs (device driver interfaces) that allow developers to target multiple Windows devices-spanning desktops, mobile and IoT hardware-with the same code.

A lack of control over when Windows 10 automatically downloads and installs updates has been one of the biggest complaints about the operating system since it came out.
