Samsung has unveiled two new members of its Galaxy Book line. There’s the Galaxy Book Pro, a clamshell, and the Galaxy Book Pro 360, a 2-in-1 convertible. Both devices come in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes, and all four configurations include gorgeous AMOLED screens. They’ll be some of the lightest and most portable PCs you can buy, and they’re powered by Intel’s latest 11th-Gen processors.

    • Good Hogh quality webcams. It should at least be 1080p + 8.0 Megapixels. We are now living in an age of virtual meetings and conferences, and laptop webcams are unbelievably poor quality. Why can't laptop webcams be as good as smartphone selfie cameras?

    Zayda Nuñez SotoZayda Nuñez SotoVor 10 Tage
  • @2:12 Just to be clear, a touch screen is NOT required for the s-pen to work. It uses a special extra layer which both powers the pen and gets location information....the "touch" happens with a sensor inside the pen itself that detects when the nib is pushed in....which is why it can be used (on water resistant phones) underwater even if the touch-screen is getting bombarded by constant full screen would still work as long as that special field is still functional, even if the touch layer was completely broken (or absent)

    • Manufacturer claimed 20 hours = 9 hours Real battery life. That's an estimate based on a traditional non-touch IPS display, an OLED Touchscreen will get even less battery life, probably around 8hrs for the 13" (63Wh battery), 7hrs on the 15" (68Wh battery).

  • It's a bit funny. I watched so many videos about those Apple new products without deciding which one to get (their Macbook Air is thin like these ones here but it has no touchscreen, their iPad Pro which has a touchscreen also has a "crippled" iOS that holds the user back in so many ways plus no keyboard, their magic keyboard which solves the problem is expensive and once you attach it on that iPad the whole thing weighs more than the Samsung book Pro 360 which also comes with a full desktop OS and a free pen, etc...etc...etc.. I know that this M1 processor is a marvel but honestly, here we have a company which tries to give you a complete solution, as opposed to another one which does the exact opposite..! Which one would you support? Ps. it is not pronounced "a-e-on" but "eon". :)

Third I Need Big Screen Tablet, I will Buy 15inch Version although I have S7+ but it's not Enough for Me because just about 12.4inch. After They Make 2in1 Laptop, the Convertible & Touchscreen Era Happens, I'm so Happy & it Becomes My Standart til Now, Could Change into Laptop & Tablet then Has Touchscreen is Very Satisfying Yay 🥳🥳🥳
