Microsoft has launched a new category of computers that blend cutting-edge artificial intelligence capabilities directly into the hardware. Dubbed Copilot+ PCs, these devices are designed to leverage AI without always needing cloud connectivity, marking a significant evolution in personal computing.

Copilot+ PCs feature integrated neural processors (NPU), which enable them to perform a multitude of AI functions locally. These systems are built with at least 16 GB of RAM and a minimum of 256 GB of storage, ensuring they meet the high demands of modern software applications.

The first models of Copilot+ PCs will be ARM-based laptops using Qualcomm processors, promising up to 18 hours of battery life. This includes Microsoft's own Surface Laptops. Future versions will also include options with Intel and AMD chips, produced in collaboration with major partners like Dell, Lenovo, Samsung, HP, Acer, and Asus.

One of the key features of these AI-enhanced PCs is the Recall function, which allows users to "rewind time" to revisit any action within the system, like returning to a previously visited website, application, or document. Additionally, the Cocreator feature offers advanced drawing and photo editing capabilities, applying various styles and filters through AI, all free of charge and unlimited in use.

The new PCs also integrate advanced AI functions into popular applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve Studio, CapCut, Cephable, LiquidText, and djay Pro. Moreover, they feature automatic synchronous translation through Live Captions for any audio content within the system, supporting instant subtitles in over 40 languages.
