ASUS Launches VivoBook W202 Windows 10S Laptop

Microsoft‘s promise of lower-cost Surface laptops is finally here and available for under $300 is the ASUS VivoBook W202 with Windows 10 S. The Windows 10 S OS is a Microsoft Store-centric version of Windows 10 that is limited in its third-party software installation. Despite getting an introduction during a Microsoft Education event and primarily targeting the education market, the “S” does not actually stand for “Student” according to Microsoft. The price is an enticing option for students who want an alternative to Chromebooks and other low-cost laptops.
