DELHI: Google popular budget Chrome books have seemingly threatened Microsoft, thatís why the software giant is reportedly developing affordable laptops that will run its upcoming Windows 10 O S.
The inexpensive laptop is likely to carry a price tag of $149 and use Intelís Bay Trail platform which is a low power processor with a size of 11.6-inches. However, Google is already offering larger 13 and 15-inch size in its Chromebooks.
A report in the Forbes stated that these laptops are targeted primarily towards emerging markets, education and the super-low end market where the tasks are limited to web browsing, word processing and social media use.
Earlier this month, Google rolled out its Pixel Chrome book-its answer to the latest Apple MacBook complete with a USB Type-C connector. The laptop has been priced at $999. Google Chrome books sell for as low as $199 and if the rumours are to be believed, people could soon see an even cheaper model by Microsoft in direct competition with Google.
