Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Review: Surface Buff
 
 
Two years ago, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be compatible with ARM processors, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon chip line, which can be found in mobile phones. At that time, I wrote that it gave Microsoft an excellent opportunity to create the perfect Surface Pro: thin, light, always connected via built-in LTE and with a lot of battery life. Since then, Microsoft has released several new Surface computers, including models with integrated LTE, but it has yet to release a computer with an ARM processor instead of more power-intensive Intel processors.

This is where the new Galaxy Book 2 from Samsung will appear. Galaxy Book 2 for $ 999 is essentially the same computer as Microsoft’s popular Surface Pro: a tablet with a detachable keyboard and pen that fully supports Windows 10. But Book 2 is also one of the new PCs with a permanent connection, which run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 processor.

On paper, Book 2 is the Surface Pro I was looking for: an always-connected ultraportable computer that will work more than a day from an outlet. But, as is often the case, what is on paper does not always coincide with reality.
