Windows Help & Advice - - INCOMING -

Sam­sung’s an­swer to the Mi­crosoft Sur­face Go, erm, sur­faced in the US in Oc­to­ber – and it’s a doozy. An up­date to the ex­ist­ing Galaxy Book, it’s pow­ered by an octa-core Qual­comm Snapdragon 850 chip – the kind nor­mally found in smart­phones – and that means it has 4G LTE con­nec­tiv­ity.

Be­cause it uses a power-sip­ping CPU, the Sam­sung Galaxy Book 2 de­liv­ers up to 20 hours of bat­tery life, yet still man­ages to pack in a 12-inch AMOLED FHD+ (2,160x1,440 pixel) dis­play, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of stor­age, plus 5MP front and 8MP rear cam­eras and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. And it runs Win­dows 10 S, too.

But the real kicker for any­one eye­ing a Sur­face are the in­cluded ac­ces­sories: the $999 ask­ing price in­cludes both an S-Pen dig­i­tal sty­lus and a key­board, two items Mi­crosoft charges ex­tra for. Oh, and it has not one, but two USB Type-C ports – con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions you won’t find on any 2019 Sur­face. Cool.
