Yesterday, the Korean manufacturer amazed us with a fresh competitor of the Surface Microsoft laptop range during the official presentation of Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The Seoul-based company has thus launched the Samsung Galaxy Book S, a truly full device with convincing reasons for being a better alternative than the MacBook Air. We’re explaining the major ones.
Among the novelties that come to the new lightweight notebook from Samsung, claim the Samsung Galaxy Book S weighs less than 1 kg, being lighter than the MacBook Air, a wonderful detail to consider. To this, some measured sizes must be added (305.2x 203.2x 6.2-11.8 mm).
On the other side, by betting on a Qualcomm processor, the Samsung Galaxy Book S surprises you. In this situation, in relation to eight energy cores, the SoC is a Snapdragon 8cx, produced in a 7-nanometer process with 64-bit architecture. And, thanks to this bet, we come up with one of this model’s first excellent benefits over the MacBook Air.
The Samsung Galaxy Book S is far superior to that of the MacBook Air
This fresh lightweight notebook, which succeeds the Samsung Galaxy Book 2, has a 42 W battery that can deliver up to 23 hours. Yes, you read that right, the Samsung Galaxy Book S autonomy doubles the 2019 MacBook Air independence. How were they getting it?
Well, on the one side, the Qualcomm 8cx processor offers amazing energy efficiency. Moreover, when you bet on this SoC, you don’t need supporters to cool the Korean company’s fresh ultra-light computer. No, there are no fans in the Samsung Galaxy Book S because it’s a tablet with a built-in keyboard.
Better connectivity settings
Despite being significantly thinner, lighter and with remarkable independence, there is no absence of detail in the Samsung Galaxy Book S. Thus we discover a laptop with 8 GB of RAM serial and two settings of 256 and 512 GB through its SSD disk.
Not to mention the fact that a nanoSIM card slot is included in its characteristics. We can therefore employ a information plan to provide complete autonomy for this Samsung laptop. We don’t have a nanoSIM card slot for MacBook Air, a detail to consider. Not to mention the fact that the internal storage model with 256 GB goes up to 1,500 euros.
Price Difference Of Samsung Galaxy Book S & The MacBook Air
Finally, the significant cost difference between the 2019 Samsung Galaxy Book S and MacBook Air must be taken into consideration. While the Korean manufacturer’s solution with 256 GB of SSD memory costs $999 in the U.S., so we can expect it to arrive at a similar price in euros in Spain, the company’s light laptop based in Cupertino has an initial price of € 1,299.
