Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 13 NP930XED-KA1DE

86.7% Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 13 review: Subnotebook with efficient Alder Lake i5 | Notebookcheck
The Galaxy Book2 weighs less than 1 kg and is powered by a 12th generation Intel i5. It is also extremely thin thanks to its OLED display. The result is an extremely portable notebook that Samsung has endowed with stamina and performance, but also with the usual weaknesses.
80% Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro Review: Simply spectacular
Source: The Times of India English
Samsung makes some drool-worthy smartphones and now that we got a taste of the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro, we can say the same confidently for its laptops too. The Galaxy Book 2 Pro is unbelievably lightweight and easy to handle, has oodles of performance to offer for regular folks, offers an amazing display, and has got all the necessary ports to get some work done. For a laptop costing just above Rs. 1 lakh, these form a good specifications sheet. That said, there are areas where the Galaxy Book 2 Pro falls behind its competition. The keyboard isn’t pleasant to use on the long run, and the battery life is average at best. The aggressive power management slows things and considering the Core i7 variant, Samsung could have offered an NVIDIA MX series GPU to enable decent editing and creative work. At Rs. 1,14,990, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro gets competition from the 13-inch Dell XPS, which we consider the benchmark for Windows notebooks.

73% Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 12Th Gen Core I7-1260P (2022) Review: The Intel 12Th Gen Delivers
Source: Think Digit English
The Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 is a 2-in-1 premium ultrabook powered by the Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake-P series processor based on the Evo platform. The laptop delivers relatively high performance compared to last-gen ultrabooks from the competition, in addition to vastly improved battery life as well. The Galaxy Book 2 Pro does feature a few drawbacks, particularly in terms of I/O ports and thermal performance but despite that quirk, the laptop still comes out on top in several of our tests.

Finally, as with last year's models, Samsung has squeezed in a surprisingly generous number of ports and sockets, including full-size USB-A and HDMI ports into such a slim and light machine as well as amicroSD slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The new laptops will be available at some point during April 2022, so keep your eyes peeled for our full review.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
