A good move in education by Microsoft. A ~$200 laptops will fit well. Surface Laptop: good for university.

The new W10 SKU js based on W10 PRO which enables many cloud-based management capabilities. On the MS store site MS has put together a table comparing features of Home, Pro, S -- it's clear that Home supports far fewer features than either PRO or S.
In fact all of PRO is part of the S install -- it's just not enabled. THe upgrade from S to PRO will be free to the end of the year (forever if you're an educational institution). It's $49 starting in 2018 for everyone else. The upgrade is merely an enablement of the PRO features already present -- so it's relatively painless. S to PRO is one way only -- you can't go back.
Only the $1,300 I5 configuration offers colors -- all others only come in platinum.
IMO the Surface Laptop and W10 S will appeal to a wider audience than education.
