And they’re cheap, too.
Samsung on Wednesday announced the new Galaxy Book Go and Galaxy Book Go 5G laptops. Built around Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 andand running Windows 10, the 14-inch laptops are a lower-cost alternative to the company’s flagship laptops. While the Go 5G isn’t expected until later this year, the Wi-Fi-only Go will be available in the US . (That converts to approximately £250 or AU$455.)
Thepromises an extremely long battery life of up to 18 hours, which is similar to what we’ve seen on past we’ve tested. However, those laptops were also a bit pokey with performance and Samsung doesn’t really make any big power claims in its announcement of the new laptops. The focus is more on mobility and being a part of the Galaxy ecosystem.
Like the, the Go is designed to seamlessly work with Samsung’s other Galaxy devices so you can do things like using a tablet as a secondary display or instantly connect your . Samsung also says it has a durable design and weighs just about 3 pounds (1.4 kilograms). All in all, this looks like it might be a good Windows alternative to lower-end Chromebooks, especially if you’re deep into Samsung’s Galaxy devices.
