Next week, the premiere of a scattering of new Samsung mobile computers – Galaxy Book Go, Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 – is expected, but the source already has details on prices. And, I must admit that the price of at least Galaxy Book Go pleases.
The Galaxy Book Go is a Windows on Arm laptop, powered by a Snapdragon 7c SoC and running Windows 10 Home. Previously, such models were very expensive – some manufacturers asked for $ 1,000 or more for them. It is logical that sales of such devices were going very bad at that time, but now Samsung has finally brought the cost of Windows on Arm to the level of Chromebooks.
According to the source, the price of the base Galaxy Book Go, with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage, is only $ 350. At the same time, the configuration of the model is a 14-inch display with Full HD resolution. The Galaxy Book Go will have a more expensive option – on the Snapdragon 8cx platform, with 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of flash memory and support for 5G, but its price has not yet been announced.
But the price of the Galaxy Book Pro has become known – this is already a full-fledged Wintel machine. They look like this:
- Galaxy Book Pro 13.3-inch, Core i7-1165G7, 8/512 GB – $ 1200;
- Galaxy Book Pro 15.6-inch, Core i5-1135G7, 8/512 GB – $ 1100;
- Galaxy Book Pro 15.6-inch, Core i7-1165G7, 16/512 GB – $ 1,300.
The cost of the Galaxy Book Pro 360 has not yet been announced, but in terms of configuration and price, these convertible laptops should match the classic Galaxy Book Pro laptops.
