Hopefully schools will chose prudently - a little of this and a little of that and not put all eggs in one basket.

Rex Tech, 22 Jan 2018This is nice and all.But considering the price this doesn't... moreSounds good for a budget laptop but your recommendation definitely goes to non student. Those Lenovo, Trigono & Classmate Leap are feature rich with educational tools software though. It would be better being supported by those software so student can make better use of laptop.

Windows 10 S only allows you to install programs from very small appstore so it's somehow even more useless than Chrome OS

Pocketable device with W10 for 200 would be even better. And I would make pen a must-have... if its for schools. But I guess first goes flagship.

Nice work microsoft

This was Bill Gates' desire for a long time now..., affordable PCs for education, I hope he's happy with this result :)

So yeah... no. Chrome started like a good dream and became Google's pet monster. Edge is faster, more lightweight, syncs everything, has smooth touchpad scrolling (almost like macs), smooth pinch to zoom, is snappy and more responsive.
I'm forced to use Chrome and Firefox at work, but when I get home I use Edge because it works better. In fact I don't even have Chrome or FF installed on any of my devices.

Chrome OS is superior to Windows 10 S, because Chrome is superior to Edge... Not to mention the Android apps catalogue.
