It has revealed the new machines at the annual Bett education show in London.

Teachers are set to receive several new tools, too. Further new options come from JP, one of Microsoft's major device partners in emerging regions, priced from $199. The other two are 2-in-1s: the Lenovo 300e convertible with pen support for $279 and the Trigono V401 with pen and touch for $299.

The cheapest system, the Lenovo 100e, starts at US$189 (A$236) and features an Intel Celeron Apollo Lake processor, 2GB of memory, 32GB storage, and an 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel screen that folds flat.

Each of these new devices are spill resistant and ruggedized, and has been created to have have long battery life and 2x2 Wi-Fi for faster connectivity.

The new announcements build on the momentum established by Microsoft's major school technology push of May 2017, which saw the introduction of the Surface Laptop, Windows 10 S and Teams for the classroom, said the executive.

In an interview, Microsoft Vice President for Worldwide Education Anthony Salcito said the company has collected feedback from its K-12 users about what it can do better-and it is responding.

The company is also expanding its OneNote Class Notebook software to include assignment and grade integration capabilities. A similar arrangement is being made between Microsoft and a provider of student information systems in United Kingdom, SIMS Capita.
