    If these laptops had 1440p screens, I'd literally buy one now. I just can't stand 1080p. I can see every pixel, and that drives me crazy.

    Samsung's PC product strategy is a hot mess. Every year a different mish mash of chips and tech. With Windows 11 being more ARM friendly, they need to introduce a proper successor to the Galaxy Book 2.

    I have a 2014 macbook pro that is specked out to the max, just bought the 13" galaxy book pro, love this machine, the screen is beautiful, the case is built well, all around a great windows laptop. I went with the 13" because I think the build quality is a little better. I love it thus far.

    Watch out the charts, you wrote « higher is better » for times comparaison tests, it should be written « lower is better » because you also mentions the MBA is better because taking less time than others😉

  • Y HA

    10:16 "Higher is better" in a clocked test? This review is a mess of misleading half-truths. What about the battery test? On the Control Panel you can change the unplugged performance so the processor, fans and battery don't try to save energy. Where these options changed or handled through a for example a Samsung's smart software or what?

  • Jason Dranoff

    I watched every review on the 360 there is and there was so many complaints and I don't agree with most of them.. I got it in the bronze which I'm returning because it's more pink, and I'm going to swap it for the blue. but the only issue I found was when it's on your lap if you squeeze the bottom like picking it up you can click the trackpad from the bottom which then makes the trackpad not usable under normal use. but everything else I found to be fine.. screen brightness was great the speakers for me I don't care cuz I use Bluetooth earphones 99.9% of the time. I love the laptop I just hated the color definitely not bronze if anyone reads this it's pink, so get the blue if you're on the fence unless you want a pink computer..but overall it's a fantastic machine and super powerful and fast lot of the reviews out there are skewed!!!

    • Prince L

      @Daniel Gutierrez arm on windows sacrifices performance for battery. Apple didn’t wanna do that so they focused on performance alongside battery

    • Daniel Gutierrez
      Daniel Gutierrez

      Excuse me, Microsoft has been trying with ARM for years now. But is the people and devs that were not willing to help. Apple really has it easy, many followers who would follow them blindly and being the only option to your own os... there's your answer

    • Ryan Fraley
      Ryan Fraley

      I am not sure what Microsoft can do other than buy an ARM processor maker like Qualcomm and drastically speed up and fit ARM development for Windows, and in doing this cut Intel and AMD out of the loop. Even if Microsoft decided to do this that bet would take years and years to pay off.

  • Client Inbox LLc

    I watch content on it besides doing graphics, the screen is pretty incredible. It's one of those things you have to see before being mainly a spec junkie about screen resolution. It's like watching a high resolution TV. I see no difference, I'm on the 13 inch.

  • Client Inbox LLc

    You people need to start washing your hands more often. Fingerprint magnet? I jus spun mines around and am not noticing any fingerprints on my lid and have been touching it all day. My touchscreen is what I have to keep wiping. I use clorox wipes on all my laptops regularly that may be why, I can't use it on the screen though.

    Please review Asus ROG x13 laptop, for a student.🙏🏽

  • OXIR

    Next year they're going to use the (possibly) same chipset as the S22 series. The Exynos 2200 with AMD GPU (including Ray Tracing capabilities). Now that would make it so interesting and will definitely make Windows on ARM better. If it has good optimization with that Cortex X2 core and brand new AMD graphics, it has chance to be so good at both work and gaming.

    Could someone who understands Apple computers please help me answer this question. I would like to buy a 27 inch iMac. I am not interested in buying the M1 chip Imac until the M1 version is released on a 27 inch. I will be using it mainly for music production, video editing with Final Cut Pro, and some animation stuff. So my question is this, Will have 2015/2016/2017 iMac be good enough still? Also, will any of these imac be good enough to run big sur? Any help would be appreciated :) Thanks

    Man ultrabooks are so good looking now a days that I wanna switch from a my crazy powerful gaming laptop. But sadly my work does not allow me to do so. Blender neural network training and lot of other demanding tasks are barely possible on mac (requirement of nvidia cards) and windows ultrabooks considering it will be my only computer. Maybe when I grow old enough to own a proper desktop setup I can replace my gaming laptop with these shocking looking ultrabooks.

    For the same price as the 13” you could get way way better performance, double the battery life and display resolution on an M1 MacBook Air. I don’t think I’d even want to consider this.

      Just got an M1 pro and air for the has higher re-sale value just in case M3 shows up in 4 years

    • Highnin Uchiha

      Yes. The Macbooks may have more horsepower on its side but the Galaxy Book is thinner, lighter and has a distinctly non-Macbook design.

      Phua Meng Thong

      @Mushaf Zarrar Thanks Bro. For confirmation, can the Microsoft Office in Window laptop run in Imac 24 inch and mac book air or is it a different Microsoft Office software?TY.

    • Mushaf Zarrar
      Mushaf Zarrar

      @Phua Meng Thong yes.yiu can run Microsoft office easily and it's actually very optimised too! Windows can be done to buy parallels and all that stuff like a virtual machine but it's not all that easy and seamless. So if u need windows directly then u can get the galaxy book/ XPS 13/ razer book but MacBook is more reliable and well made.

    • Phua Meng Thong

    • Kelvin KMS
      Kelvin KMS

      @Royal Boyle78 and don't forget gaming can drain much more battery than 4K screen itself. I can see Galaxy Book Pro is not for gaming. so 4K screen will not impact battery life. and I rather sacrifice few hours battery life than 1080P screen.

    • Kelvin KMS
      Kelvin KMS

      @Royal Boyle78 not really. iPhone 12 Pro Max has super 400+ pixels per inch. It can be last for over 10 hours. As a laptop which has much larger battery capacity. so I expect even 4K can be last for over 10 hours too. You can see new M1 MacBook Pro with retina resolution can last over 20 hours !!!

    • Royal Boyle78

      With a 4k screen, your looking at a worse battery life.
