Very light with less than 900 grams on the scale, the ultraportable Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro compact and thin 13-inch Full HD AMOLED screen with colors much more faithful than the average will interest nomads with its autonomy of 10 hours under Windows 11. This versatile Ultrabook is powerful in everyday use and is suitable for modest processing with its 16 GB of RAM as well as its Alder Lake-H Core i7-1260P processor with 12 hybrid cores and Iris Xe graphics solution able to run modest games. This rugged anthracite laptop whose responsiveness is enhanced by fast SSD storage also benefits from a backlit keyboard, a fingerprint reader or connectivity with Thunderbolt 4, 2 USB-C and Wi-Fi ax.

Chassis, connectors, screen of this Samsung-Galaxy-Book2-Pro
It sports a sober and elegant design with its compact, thin and light anthracite chassis with anti-fingerprint coating.
This versatile ultraportable is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 4, its Wireless Modules Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ax) to communicate and connect remotely, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example – whose presence is particularly appreciable in terms of format, an audio port or 1 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
As a biometric reader is integrated, one can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
A backlight solution equips of course the chiclet keyboard which is very practical to better distinguish its keys in low light atmosphere.
The screen will be of particular interest to those who want to achieve a much more faithful than average color display with very deep blacks, reduced latency as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, as it takes advantage of AMOLED technology. With its 16/9th format and its Full HD definition, the screen also lends itself very well to the display of videos and more broadly High Definition content. It is also Eye Care certified for a reduction of harmful blue light of up to 6.5%.
Performance, battery life of this Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro
This Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro is for those who want to equip themselves with a compact, sober and light laptop for versatile use on the go.
It is very easy to carry on a daily basis thanks to its great lightness with its weight well below average (- 900 grams!), its compactness and its finesse. In addition to terms of autonomy, it is able to hold about 10 hours on battery in light use, enough to use it serenely without cluttering with a wire on the paw.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as its 16 GB of low-power RAM, just like the processor, an Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1260P.
Many users will be satisfied with the overall performance delivered by this versatile Ultrabook. Including those who occasionally perform modest multimedia processing using RAM and multi-core, and therefore the 12 hybrid cores of the Core i7 Alder Lake-P, such as photo editing or video editing.
Logically with regard to the positioning of this computer, including its ultraportable format, no dedicated graphics card is embedded here.
However, thanks to the Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the Core i7, you can watch photos and videos but also play modest titles.
As for storage, Samsung opts here for an SSD that has the advantage of being more energy efficient than a hard drive but also more shock resistant, quiet and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD the processing is much faster especially than with a simple hard disk for example, as well as the starts/stops and launches of software, and we reach faster on the cards of online games.
More generally, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard disk on a daily basis.
It is a 512 GB SSD that is proposed here, capacity in accordance with the standard of hard drives which may be insufficient for some. However, you can always use an external storage unit such as a USB-C/Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
