The Unpacked event on August 7th wasn’t just about the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. Samsung also unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Book S, which may be Samsung’s Windows-powered answer to the MacBook Air. It is a unique device in its own way. Samsung went with a Qualcomm chip instead of the usual Intel processors on most PCs.

The Galaxy Book S will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx chip (7nm 64-bit Octa-core processor) and runs windows 10. Samsung says that this version of the Galaxy Book series should have “40 percent greater CPU performance, 80 percent greater graphics performance, and added memory bandwidth” when compared to its predecessor – the Galaxy book 2.

Samsung decided to go with a clam shell design instead of the usual 2-in-1 design of the Galaxy Book and Galaxy Book 2. However, the PC does look very thin and light weight, with two USB-C ports and a headphone jack. The Galaxy Book S weighs under 1kg (960 grams), which is just a little over 2 pounds. It is also just 11.8mm (0.4-inches) thick, making it one of the sleekest Ultrabook we have seen, and it has an elegant look. Two color options will be available – Earthy Gold or Mercury Gray.

Performance

The main selling point of this device is clearly the 23-hour battery life. This is far beyond what we’ve seen so far, with a close second, the Lenovo Thinkpad T480 coming in with a 17-hour battery life. But these were tested under lab conditions, so you should get much less than that with actual use. Nevertheless, it is impressive.

The big question with this device is whether the processor will be able to handle tasks like a viable main computer or not. ARM- based PCs have disappointed us in the past, so we’ll have to see how the Galaxy Book S does. The Samsung Galaxy Book S is the first Ultabook on the market combining Qualcomm’s 7nm 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 8cx with windows 10. The main advantage of this is a superb battery life of up to 23 hours of video playback from the 42Wh battery. It also ensures that the PC is very power efficient especially on hibernate and also boots very fast.

Samsung says that it looks like a laptop but has the “essence of a smartphone,” thanks to a powerful mobile chipset that comes with LTE connectivity.

Features

The screen is a 13.3 inch 1080p display with 16:9 aspect ratio and 10-point multi-touch display like most laptops at its price range. It also includes a 720p HD front-facing camera. In addition, the power button also doubles as a fingerprint sensor which should result in instant-on performance like we’ve seen on mobile phones.

The keyboard is back-lit while audio is tuned by AKG with Dolby Atmos support. Connectivity includes support for dual-band Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Gigabit LTE, Bluetooth 5, location (GPS, Galileo, Glonass, BeiDou) and a USB-C port. The device will ship with either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro. The base model will have a 8GB/256GB configuration while the 8GB/512GB configuration will cost a little more.

The laptop is set to hit stores in September, starting at $999 for the base model. I’ll future updates for you with more information on specs and the like. If you’re just looking for a laptop to browse, watch videos, create spreadsheets and stuff like that, then it is worth waiting for. However, in terms of computing power I wouldn’t go for this. Anything like video editing and gaming will not be optimal for an Ultrabook of this caliber, its basically a premium Chromebook.

  39. Desde hace unos cuantos meses, es bastante habitual ver webs que permiten enviar el número IMEI de un iPhone bloqueado por una operadora para su liberación. Lamentablemente, si me creo que trabaje para FNAC, comparte rasgos de personalidad con uno de los empleados con los que he tenido que tratar en el servicio de postventa de la tienda de la Castellana. El trato que he recibido en el servicio de postventa de FNAC es la peor experiencia que yo he tenido jamás como consumidor. No me sorprendería que los vendedores de crack en el Bronx tuvieran políticas de devolución más razonables que FNAC. Tras una visita a la tienda y un par de llamadas a su (de 15 euros de nada) conseguí un número de autorización” para tramitar la devolución en una de sus tiendas (comentar sobre esto en condiciones sería otra entrada en el blog).

Según dictamina el Real Decreto 795/2010, de 1 de Junio, es necesario adquirir el certificado que acredita para la manipulación y reparación de sistemas frigoríficos que empleen refrigerantes fluorados.

No existen demasiadas evidencias de su utilización en Bolivia más que como fuente de repuestos.
