The Samsung Galaxy Book ($1,299.99) is a 2-in-1 detachable-hybrid table running Windows 10. It’s Samsung’s answer to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, our current top pick. Due to their included hardware keyboards, 2-in-1 laptops are better bets for productivity over slate tablets. (Have you ever tried editing a long Word document on an iPad?) The Galaxy Book packs a brilliant Super AMOLED screen, LTE connectivity, and an impressive 14 hours of battery life that help it stand out in this crowded field. The downsides: You only get 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, and at this price you should get at least double that.
14 hours of battery life. Very thin and light. 2,160-by-1,440 Super AMOLED screen is sharp and brilliant. 4G LTE connectivity. Keyboard cover and S Pen are bundled.
4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. Lacks a kickstand. USB Type A adapter is not included. Pen storage is flimsy. No Windows Hello or fingerprint security support.
- BOTTOM LINE
Samsung’s Galaxy Book is a high-end 2-in-1 convertible with a gorgeous Super AMOLED screen and category-leading battery life. But it could use a bump up in memory and storage to merit its $1,300 price tag.
