    Although this is windows s these are some pretty terrible specs fro the price 4GB ram and a snapdragon 850? you can get way better laptops for this price

      Yeah - the 4GB is thin but the version of Windows 10 S is apparently optimised for the CPU. I;m waiting on a review unit. Once I've had a play I'll report back.

        Hey Anthony, I have the Galaxy Book 2 here in the states and while it is thin in the spec dept., it is not a bad little device. It is by no means a powerhouse. It will lag if pushed too hard, however, for things like getting caught up with work stuff, Ie. Word doc, Pdf's, powerpoint, Excel, Emails it is great. It is also great for accessing multi media playgrounds and watching movies, listening to music etc, etc. The detachable keyboard is great and also acts as a screen protector/case when your not using the device. The mouse pad is smooth and reactive as well. The S pen is decent. I love to draw which is what I use it for but it is also good for things like editing photos and documents. The entire device is very similar to the Microsoft surface pro. Every program I have on my computer at work, I have on my Galaxy book 2. I no longer have to take my computer home with from work in order to work from home, which is nice. Windows runs perfectly using the snapdragon 850 processor. You will not be able to play graphic intensive games or run multiple programs simultaneously, but if you keep it basic and have reasonable expectations, it is a really nice device. It has grown on me. I actually take it with me everywhere and the Gig LTE means I never have to worry about needing a wifi connection if there isn't one around.
