The Samsung 2-in-1 laptop / tablet combo is a unique laptop at a great price (For now at Best Buy) that is great for anyone who needs portability and convenience. The ability to spin from laptop to tablet and still maintain productivity is an absolute must for those who are looking for a do it all laptop.
With a 1920×1080 FHD screen, and super bright 300nit display, you’ll have vibrant images everywhere you go. Not only visually appealing, but kit wise too! With an 8th gen i5 as well as 8GB of RAM, a large 512GB SSD, and an Intel UHD 620 for the display, this notebook will handle most everything you can throw at it.
A slight drawback
Even though it has a little bit of everything for a great price, it’s not without it’s downsides. The battery life is set to be 9.5 hours of battery life and that’s a bit of a stretch. With the battery capacity being 3950 mAh, you might comfortably make it to 6 or so with decent use. Honestly not that bad, but not quite as advertised.
Aside from the battery there really isn’t anything all that bad, especially for the price of $599.99 this Black Friday. If we are to nitpick however, the one USB 2.0 could have been another 3.0 or better, and the HDMI could have been 2.0 instead of the (most probable) 1.4. Samsung doesn’t advertise the specs of the HDMI to be 2.0, so chances are its not.
The speakers are only 1.5W (2 speakers at 1.5W each) which isn’t really a drawback, it’s just something we thought should be listed. For the most part people have headphones or earphones. And if anything, the 1.5W speakers are there to save battery which is of course very important if you’re using it all day and only charge at home.
It’s simple, it’s unique, and it works. All at a great price ($300 off the original price) Really not much more you could ask for if you’re looking for a small laptop that could really go everywhere and anywhere with you. 3.2lbs really isn’t much weight at all! Especially for a Samsung 2-in-1 laptop + tablet combo. If you’re looking for something fast, light, with touch screen capabilities, and with a great screen, this is the laptop for you.
