Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 15 NP950XDB-KC5US

87.3% Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 15 NP950XDB laptop review: Insanely lightweight | Notebookcheck
Samsung's flagship 15.6-inch laptop is several hundred grams lighter than the popular Dell XPS 15, HP Spectre x360 15, and most other laptops of its size class for that matter. Do performance and battery life suffer as a consequence?

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
