Microsoft has released a range of PCs with in-built AI infrastructure to power its Copilot assistant.  

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced the news during Microsoft’s PC Surface event on 20 May, just a day before the company’s annual Build Developer Conference which kicks off today (21 May).

Microsoft stated that its leading laptop partners, including Dell and Lenovo, will also provide Copilot to its customers. 

The PCs will offer users access to Copilot, giving them the ability to generate images and text in real-time. ADOBE has also partnered with Microsoft alongside the release of its Copilot PCs to provide access to its flagship photo editing apps on the laptops. 

Photoshop, Lightroom and Express will be available on the AI PCs from purchase, with Illustrator and Premier Pro becoming available in the future. 

Live captions will also be available, offering real-time subtitles across 40 languages, and users will be able to use Copilot’s Recall feature to easily find documents and images.
