Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2 Pro series includes the thinnest and lightest laptops on the market. Indeed, it weighs less than two pounds on a 13-inch clamshell. Samsung shipped the 15.6-inch Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360, which is the heaviest in the pack at 3.1 pounds.
Actually, for a laptop with a 15.6-inch screen, that’s still crazy light. If you want something even lighter, the CP starts at just 2.45 pounds. All models come with Intel’s new P-series processors and FHD AMOLED displays. In fact, the FHD can be a bit light on a large screen size like 15.6 inches.
This being a convertible, you can write on that screen, and that’s when we start to wonder what’s included in the box. Here is the list:
- Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360
- s pen
- 65W Power Adapter
- USB Type-C to USB Type-C Cable
Like all Samsung Galaxy Book laptops and unlike most S Pen-enabled Galaxy smartphones, the Pen doesn’t get its own pen garage. You can attach it to the lid magnetically, though that isn’t very strong either.
Note that the 65W charging adapter is just that. Most laptops have a power cable with a brick, but that’s not the case here. All of that is included in the adapter itself, as you’ll see with a smartphone charging adapter. It can also output at 40W, so you can charge your Galaxy S22 or Tab S8.
As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 comes with Intel’s new P-series processor, which has 28W TDP. Notably, it has a Core i7-1260P, which has four performance cores and eight efficiency cores, for a total of 12 cores and 16 threads. It’s one of the first ultrabooks to use Intel’s 12th-gen processors, so it’ll be fun to test its performance.
But when it comes to Samsung, it’s not just about performance. It is also about the ecosystem. If you have a Galaxy smartphone, you can use Link to Windows to connect your phone to a laptop, so you can send and receive texts from your PC, and even use Android apps. Can mirror too. If you have a Samsung tablet, you can use SecondScreen, turning the device into a wireless second monitor for you.
The Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 is the lightest in its class, and has been upgraded with this generation by adding a 28W processor and an FHD webcam.
