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?
