Microsoft is not only focused on costly devices like its Surface line-up, but it also thinks of people with a low budget and students. The Redmond giant has just unveiled four affordable notebooks made by two of its most important partners: Lenovo and JP. These notebooks will be available to purchase under $300 in the USA, they will have the Windows 10 operating system and they will also come with free Office 365 with OneNote and Teams pre-installed. Just to point out, only buying this software alone would cost more than $200, but with these laptops, you will also get a PC at the same price.

The first laptop unveiled by Microsoft is the Lenovo 100e, and it is also the most affordable one. Even though it is very cheap, it has a good CPU inside: an Intel Celeron Apollo Lake. It will be sold in the U.S. with a price tag of just $190. Then, we got a convertible laptop: Lenovo 300e, which has a touchscreen and supports a stylus for handwriting and drawing. The third notebook unveiled is the Classmate Leap T303 by JP, which supports Windows Hello for security. This one will be launched with a price of just $200.

At last, we got the Trigono V401 which is another convertible with the support to touch and pen input. This is the most expensive one, it will cost $300. These notebooks join some other ones for students which were already unveiled by Microsoft. One of these is HP Stream 11 Pro G4 EE, which has a display with an HD resolution, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage (eMMC). Each of the notebooks mentioned is an entry-level laptop, but they are excellent for their prices and do not forget that they offer very interesting programs to help students learn.

Would you buy such a PC for studying?
