  • Microsoft Announces a May Windows 10/Hardware Event

A person familiar with the company's plans said hardware and software will be unveiled, though the company is not now planning to introduce the highly-anticipated Surface Pro 5 tablet. We're expecting a mix of hardware and software news, but perhaps not the hardware or software news that some people will be expecting. The new Windows version is called Windows 10 Cloud according to The Verge. You might recall that this name for a version of the Windows 10 Creators Update surfaced during testing late previous year of Redstone 2.

Another reason behind Chromebooks high sale rate is its pricing, and in order to combat its dominance the company has promised to offer $189 Windows 10 systems.

Reports about a Windows 10 Cloud variant first appeared in January, with early copies showing that it will be another simplified version of Windows created to run Microsoft's Universal apps from the Windows Store.

Rumors about what can be announced seem to focus on Windows 10 Cloud.

Mysterious flash of light seen across San Diego sky
A mysterious flash of light streaked across Southern California on Monday, causing many questions for local San Diego residents. The woman catches sight of the mystery flash on her computer camera and turns around in panic.

Besides, now that Microsoft has effectively established itself as a player in the high-end hardware space, it's about time the company focused more on lower price brackets.

ZDNet says a Surface Book 2 won't be ready in time for the May event, but it's possible Microsoft has a separate Surface device ready to launch instead. Rumors suggest that tablet will have a mild update to include new hardware like Intel Kaby Lake processors, but not much else.

A fresh version of the Surface Pro table isn't expected at the May 2 event.

Well, given the event is reportedly internally codenamed "Bespin" the Star Wars planet that hosts Cloud City, it appears to be the flawless time to introduce Windows 10 Cloud.
