Samsung Galaxy Book Pro is a MacBook Air rival, but it’s even thinner and lighter

It's only fair to share...Share on RedditShare on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Tumblr

Samsung has just launched its latest thin and light laptop – the Galaxy Book Pro. The new Samsung offering comes in two sizes – 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch. Both the variants share the same design and core internals, except for a few differences which include the screen real estate, batter size, and the amount of RAM fitted inside the chassis. Color options on the table are Mystic Blue and Mystic Silver, in case you’re too keen on the aesthetics part.

It weighs just 0.87Kg and is merely 11.2mm thin

Starting with the build, Samsung says that the Galaxy Book Pro is its lightest mainstream laptop ever, weighing in at just 0.87kg. For comparison, the current generation MacBook Air tips the scales at 1.2kg. Samsung has managed to achieve that feather-weight profile despite using metal – Series 6000 aluminum to be specific – and says that the device has also passed the MIL-STD 810G durability tests.

The smaller variant packs a 13.3-inch FHD (1920×1080 pixels) AMOLED display, while the 15.6-inch model just bumps up the screen size despite keeping the resolution figures intact. You can equip the machine with up to an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, paired with up to 16 gigs of RAM and 512GB of NVMe SSD.

65W fast charging, Intel Evo badge, and scissor-switch keys with 1.1mm travel

Both the Galaxy Book Pro models support 65W fast charging, while authentication is handled by a fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button. Samsung says the Galaxy Book Pro employs a re-engineered keyboard with scissor-switch keys that offer a decent 1.1mm key travel for a laptop that is just 11.2mm thin.

Also, it is Intel Evo certified, which means it comes with a promise of faster wake time (less than 1 second), fast charging, Wi-Fi 6, and a Thunderbolt 4 port that offer a 40Gb/s data transfer rate. Intel’s Iris Xe integrated GPU is there to handle the graphics department, while wireless connectivity is covered by WiFi 6E and Bluetooth v5.1.

With Galaxy Book Pro, Samsung has made one of the best MacBook Air rivals out there

The Galaxy Book Pro also comes with a host of tricks such as Second Screen that turns your Galaxy tablet into, well, a secondary display. Another tool called Galaxy Smart Switch is there to transfer all data – and even settings – from your old PC to the new Samsung machine, while Quick Share allows data sharing between the laptop and Galaxy phones. More importantly, SmartThings integration allows you to control smart home devices directly from the laptop.

The Galaxy Book Pro starts at $999.99 for the 13.3-inch model, while the 15.6-inch version will set you back by $1,099.99 for the base model. Pre-orders kick off today, while general availability starts on May 14. If you pre-order the device before May 13, you’ll get a $150 from Amazon, or a $150 gift voucher from Best Buy, or an e-coupon worth the same value on the official Samsung online store. Those who drop their money on Samsung’s latest laptop before May 30 will get a $100 in-store credit from the aforementioned outlets.

Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable is a pricey Surface rival with Thunderbolt 4 ports

Dell has introduced its latest 2-in-1 convertible with a magnetic keyboard – the Latitude 7320 Detachable. A quick glance at its design, and it can be said without a doubt that Dell’s new machine has the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 as its main competitor. However, the Dell offering comes with a few upgrades such as a faster processor, a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports, and a fast-charging stylus.

For $1,549, you get the base variant with a paltry 4 gigs of RAM, 128GB storage, and an Intel Core i3 processor

The Latitude 7320 Detachable comes armed with a 13-inch FHD+ touch-sensitive display with a blue-light filtering layer and Gorilla Glass 6 DX on top for protection. The bezels are noticeably thinner than what its Microsoft rival has to offer, while the peak brightness output stands at 500 nits. Dell says that its new convertible has an MIL-STD certified build, while the battery inside can go up from 0-80% in just an hour – thanks to the proprietary ExpressCharge technology.

Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable

Connectivity is handled by 4G LTE (optional), Gigabit-class WiFi 6, and a pair of Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ports. Microsoft, on the other hand, has skipped the Thunderbolt standard on its Surface 7 Pro citing security threats. Coming back to the Dell machine, the Latitude 7320 Detachable also supports Windows Hello sign-in via an IR camera assembly and can also be armed with a fingerprint reader and SmartCard reader (both optional) as well.

The Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable can be configured with up to an 11 Gen Intel Core i7-1185G7 vPro process with Iris Xe graphics. And oh, the machine is also Intel Evo certified, which means it delivers on certain core criteria such as wake time of less than a second, fast charging support, and more than 9 hours of battery life. There is scope for equipping it with up to 16 gigs of RAM and 512GB of SSD.

Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable stylus

The detachable keyboard – which Dell sells separately – has a dedicated docking slot for housing the stylus. Dell claims that the stylus can be fully juiced up in just 30 seconds via wireless charging while sitting in the keyboard slot, and lasts up to 90 minutes on a single charge. The keyboard and its stylus-garage design on the Latitude 7320 Detachable is similar to what Microsoft has done with the Surface Pro X.

Dell says that the Latitude 7320 Detachable 2-in-1 is now up for grabs in the US starting at $1,549 for the base variant with a paltry 4 gigs of RAM, 128GB storage, and an Intel Core i3 processor. If you want the more powerful Core i7 configuration, you’ll have to spend at least $2,159, which is quite steep even by the Microsoft Surface Pro standards.

Windows 10 taskbar is getting a personalized makeover

Microsoft has announced the roll-out of news and interests on the Windows 10 taskbar. It will be rolled out to customers over the next several weeks. It is being made available in a phased manner and a broader availability will occur in the coming months. The Windows 10 taskbar makeover will make it easy for you to catch up on the things you care about. News and interests on the taskbar will provide a convenient and personalized experience centered around you.

After testing the feature with Insiders, Microsoft is rolling out news and interests to Windows 10 taskbar. Essentially, it creates a shortcut on the taskbar that allows you to check the weather, latest news, sports scores as well as stock prices. If you tap on a story, it will open in a browser. Moreover, you can save an article for later reading and share it if you so desire. As of now, there won’t be any ads in the new tool.

You can obviously tweak the selection of topics you see in your feed. Plus, you can select the publications Windows uses to source articles so you can easily have access to Pocketnow stories. You also get flexibility in how the icon appears on your taskbar. Plus, you can turn off the feature if it doesn’t please you and if you don’t want to see it at all. Hence, it is not a forced update.

According to Microsoft, adding news and interests to your Windows 10 taskbar will make finding high-quality and relevant news content easier. Further, the company says that most people already have a routine where they’re constantly checking what’s going in on the world throughout the day. Therefore, it is making the process seamless by including a way to check the weather, news, and other things. The feature will begin rolling out to customers over the next several weeks.
