Posted April 10, 2018 12:08:10In a time when the majority of consumers will be using laptops, PCs and smartphones for entertainment and work, many will be looking for an alternative to using traditional PC hardware.
In fact, there are already a number of ARM-based PCs that are available for consumers to buy.
But the Windows 10 operating system is still far from being fully supported by these devices, and there are still a few hardware vendors that are refusing to ship Windows 10 PCs.
This means that consumers can expect to be waiting for a while to get the full Windows 10 experience on these devices.
While Windows 10 is expected to arrive on ARM-powered devices later this year, Microsoft is keeping things somewhat under wraps for now.
The company has announced that there are no plans for ARM-branded hardware to ship to consumers by the end of 2018, meaning that these devices will likely not see a major update in the near future.
The only major hardware update in 2017 was the Windows 8.1 update that came out with Windows 10 in October.
In 2018, Microsoft also announced that Windows 10 will be available for the Raspberry Pi 2 , which is also the successor to the Raspberry PI 1.
While the first Raspberry Pi is still out of production, the Raspberry pi 2 is expected in the next few months.
With this announcement, Microsoft has also stated that the Raspberry Pis will be compatible with Windows, allowing users to use the hardware to build a fully functioning Windows 10 desktop.
As for the devices that will receive Windows 10 support, there will be a number in the early part of 2019, including the Dell Inspiron 17 7000, the HP Envy 13 7000 and the Lenovo ThinkPad T460.
These devices are expected to be compatible to Windows 10 and will be priced between $199 and $299.
