Samsung's 15.6" Notebook 5 comes with a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U processor along with 8GB of LPDDR3 memory to run demanding applications such as creating databases and digital content. The Notebook 5 features a 15.6" screen that is driven by integrated Intel HD Graphics 520, which delivers a resolution of 1920 x 1080. To expand the on-screen workspace, it includes an HDMI port and a VGA port, which is compatible with legacy monitors.

For long-term memory, Samsung has armed this notebook with two drives that provide performance along with ample storage of data. A 128GB SSD delivers fast access to frequently-used files and programs, and a 1TB hard drive can be used to store videos, photos, and other content. Furthermore, Windows 10 Home is the installed operating system.

Network connectivity may be achieved using the Gigabit Ethernet port and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi. Another wireless connection is Bluetooth 4.1, which pairs with speakers and headsets. You can expand the Notebook 5's capabilities by connecting printers, scanners, and external storage drives to its single USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports. Other notable features include a webcam, two 1.5W speakers, and a 3-in-1 memory card reader.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
