Live: Microsoft has a new computer to show off at today’s event – CNET
Microsoft‘s education-focused event is being held Tuesday in New York at 9:30 a.m. ET (6:30 a.m. PT or 2.30 p.m. UK). We’ll be carrying the livestream of the event at the top of this page and adding updates here with new products as they’re announced.
The tech giant is expected to announce a new version of its Windows software designed to be much more secure and easier for schools to maintain, according to our sister site ZDNet. It’s also expected to show off a new computer aimed at students and schools.
Microsoft hopes that by doing this, it can help to get a new toehold in schools, where its computers have been at times outshined by Apple’s iPads and cheaper, stripped-down PCs called Chromebooks.
Check back here for all the details of Microsoft’s announcements.
