Windows 10 S is available even on lower cost computers. Students can now focus on their schoolwork more instead of worrying about finances because good things CAN come at an affordable price.

Multiple computers are usually used in a classroom environment and this makes preparing the devices for the school year strenuous. Windows 10 S makes life easier for schools by enabling them to set-up the system through USB with preconfigured options one can customize for educational purposes.

Oh, and did we mention? Windows 10 S comes with a Minecraft: Education Edition subscription for 1 year. Other than that, Microsoft is giving schools Office 365 for Education for free.

Although Windows 10 S can only run apps downloaded from the Windows store, people can still run third-party apps if they pay an additional $49 and upgrade the system to Windows 10 Pro.
The new Microsoft OS will be available in the US on June 15.
