  • Galaxy Book S, Note 10, and the Microsoft connection

    Looks like Samsung is going to start selling a Windows laptop that works with a Snapdragon ARM processor. Details from Mehedi on Thurrott.com

    There isn’t anything standout of the design of the device, and it’s pretty simple for a laptop. But it still has a pretty nice and simple design.

    It’ll arrive in September with 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, 23 hours of battery life, 13.3-inch display, priced from $999. Expect to hear a LOT of chest-beating from the Microsoft-centric sites.

    Let’s just hope it doesn’t come with Win10 S. And that it doesn’t ship with Microsoft’s drivers. <snark /off>

    UPDATE: Follow-up by Mehedi with more details of all the Samsung-Microsoft announcements. Looks like the Note 10 will ship with a load of MS software.
