The Galaxy Book is Samsung's new budget laptop, but it can be configured with up to a Core i7-1165G7 and an NVIDIA GeForce MX450, albeit only with a Core i5-1135G7 processor. The Galaxy Book supports LTE too, has dual M.2 2280 SSDs and plenty of ports.

The Galaxy Book may be the budget alternative to the Galaxy Book Pro, Pro 360 and Odyssey that Samsung has announced today, but that does not necessarily make it a slouch. The machine measures 356.6 x 229.1 x 15.4 mm and weighs between 1.55 kg and 1.59 kg, depending on the SKU, so it is neither too heavy or bulky to carry around, either.

All models come with the same 1080p panel and a 54 Wh battery. Samsung has made no battery life estimates so far, but it has confirmed that a 65 W USB Type-C 'Super Charger' will be in the box. Additionally, all configurations have two USB Type-C ports, two USB 3.2 Type-A ports, a microSD card slot and a full-sized HDMI port. Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Book with two M.2 2280 slots too, although it will only populate one.

Moreover, Samsung will offer a choice between the Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1165G7, along with unnamed Pentium Gold and Celeron processors. Only the Core i7-1165G7 will be available with LTE, but it misses out on the optional GeForce MX450 with which Samsung will offer the Core i5-1135G7 version. A fingerprint scanner appears to be optional across all configurations, though.

The Galaxy Book Go starts at US$549 and will be orderable in Mystic Blue or Mystic Silver from May 14. Samsung has not confirmed how much the range-topping model will cost in the US, but it will be priced at €1,149 in the Eurozone.
