From refrigerators to washers to dryers to chips to displays to smartphones, tablets, and notebooks, is there anything Samsung doesn’t make? Cars? Trucks? Sorry. You can’t throw those against a wall. Here’s another Mac notebook killer from Samsung.
Books Are Books
What I find interesting about the state of modern electronics is how some companies use Apple as their R&D division, and how other companies have their own, launch their own products, then end up following Apple anyway.
What do all PC notebooks look like? Apple’s iconic MacBook Air. What do all tablets look like? What do all smartphones look like? What did any of them look like before Apple entered the market and gave everyone else the design cues to move forward?
Samsung, on the other hand only follows Apple’s design trends after spending big money tossing its own designs against the wall to see which ones stick. They don’t stick, so that’s why they chase after Apple.
The latest Samsung notebook is much like Apple’s much anticipated and seldom seen Mac Pro. Announced, but not delivered. Galaxy Book S is a lightweight always-on notebook, with long battery life, gigabit LTE connectivity, that weighs about two pounds and can last up to 23 hours doing nothing but playing videos from YouTube.
Galaxy Book S packs incredible power. Engineered with the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 8cx processor, it’s not only agile, but performs at extraordinary speeds. Having 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage space means you can easily tackle large spreadsheets, presentations and videos. When you need more space, expand up to an additional 1TB with a microSD card at any time
Wow. Don’t you wish Apple would do something the same way with an A13 Bionic chip instead of Intel Inside?
When will this little beast ship? Nobody knows. How much will it cost? Nobody knows.
Sorry. This really isn’t Samsung’s MacBook Pro killer, regardless of price.
Yes, it checks off all the right boxes. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, USB-C, 256GB SSD with external storage, too, Windows 10 Home, ARM-based Qualcomm 8cx CPU, 13-inch 1080p display, fingerprint sensor and Windows Hello, etc.
It’s a book. A Galaxy Book S. It’s like Samsung’s version of copying Apple’s MacBook. Just like Microsoft did with Surface Book. What’s with all the copycat names? Apple should announce a new Mac Galaxy Class Surface just to see how Microsoft and Samsung would react to having pieces of their product names lifted.
My title was changed from Samsung Makes A Mac Killer Notebook to May Make because nobody will pay any attention if the mud hits the wall and slides off. That happens often.
