It looks like these past few years all major tech companies have launched their own 2-in-1 device. The biggest brand in this industry is undoubtedly Microsoft’s Surface Pro. The most popular device which was released under that brand name has to be Surface Pro 4. This is actually the latest Surface Pro offering.
What’s interesting is that Surface Pro 4 is competing with Samsung’s Galaxy Book lineup. The reason why this is interesting is because Samsung was known for producing Windows laptops, but then decided to produce its own laptops. Today we’re going to compare Samsung Galaxy Book against Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and see how well they fare against each other.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Book: Release Date
As everyone knows, Surface Pro 4 has been out for quite a while now but we can’t say the same thing about Galaxy Book. The South Korean tech giant was expected to announce all the details surrounding the new Galaxy Book during the Mobile World Congress, but instead Samsung decided not to. Therefore, this comparison will be based only on specs.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Book: Hardware Power
Surface Pro 4 is quite impressive when it comes to hardware performances. The device has been equipped with Intel’s sixth generation Core i7 processors which can be coupled with up to 16GB of RAM. If this doesn’t seem that impressive, readers should know that Surface Pro 4’s internal storage space can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD card.
On the other hand, the new Galaxy Book will be powered by Intel’s seventh generation Core i5 processors which clock at 3.1GHz. The chipset will also be paired with 4GB or 8GB of RAM. Additionally, the laptop ships in the 128GB and 256GB internal storage space variants. Even better, Galaxy Book will feature a microSD card reader.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Book: Verdict
It looks like Microsoft is finally going to have some tough competition. We can’t know for sure when Galaxy Book will drop, but it will definitely make waves in the tech industry. We should also mention that rumors are pointing out that Microsoft will be launching a brand new Surface Pro 5 which will probably be better than Samsung’s laptop.
