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.
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.

    Samsung 12 reviews

    12" Galaxy Book 12 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Small Business We got to try out the Galaxy Book 10.6" 128GB. Our business laptop had crashed, and we were looking for something to replace it. This is it. Super fast, crystal clear display, and the ease of switching from tablet mode to laptop mode is my favorite. I can save all the files I need like a regular laptop, but carrying it around like a tablet. The best of both worlds. I have to say after using this I don't see us going back to a laptop or desktop very soon. Ease of use, portability, crystal clear screen, great battery life. 5 stars all the way around. And don't forget how easy it is to link with your phone! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sleek laptop/tablet I have been using the Samsung Book 12 for a week now. The device performs flawlessly. What I didn't expect was how laptop-like it is. The unit can work through online usual tasks and also handle a spreadsheet or two. The only challenge so far was the operating system update (just like any PC however). The screen is excellent. Also the fact that the keyboard and s pen come with is an added bonus. Syncing it with by S8 plus has also been a plus. So far, so good. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great unit only 2 flaws I so far love this PC/Tablet. It is fast enough space for what I need and is perfect for the on-the-go worker/student/professional. Battery life is amazing and the pen for it is great! Keyboard Cover/Case is smooth and keys are very responsive as is the touchpad the unit has. Pros: - Fast - Light - Bright Screen - Keyboard and touch pad feel/work great - Pen use feels natural Cons: - Can never attach the keyboard in one shot left or right side is always not in and has to be pushed/forced in at times. - Pen holder uses a sticker. to attach to the tablet. Would have preferred a strong magnet or an outside sleeve built into the keyboard/Cover.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from unboxing of the Samsung Galaxy Book I have been in the market for a tablet well over a year now. My old tablet has exceeded its years and compatibilities, so this time I wanted to try a completely different system. Since i've grown accustomed to the competitors products such as their desktops & phones. My only concern was the transition into a Windows OS. It has been instant gratification knowing the tablet can be ideal and "sleeping" yet instantaneously start working and opening several applications without any lagging or loading seconds of using. Unboxing and setup was simple, once fully charged I turned on my Samsung Galaxybook and quickly realized it's more than just a tablet, It's literally a full windows cpu in a tablet form which crazy enough is more portable than a laptop. Surprisingly the Galaxybook is my go to tool when needing to get my work done. Its lightweight design, and keyboard/cover makes my computing experience way much more pleasurable and spontaneous. I highly recommend this product to anyone wanting a much easier and complete computing experience. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 2-in-1!! I love the Samsung Galaxy Book! It is lightweight and convenient. The speed and function are impressive. It has totally replaced my heavy laptop. With the amazing S Pen and the detachable keyboard that come with it, it is the WHOLE PACKAGE! It charges EXTREMELY FAST! I highly recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done windows tablet This is a solid tablet. The build quality is excellent. The unusually small size is still quite functional as a laptop. It performs better than I expected. The screen looks great. The battery lasts a long time. Windows 10 works as well as a laptop as it does as a tablet operating system, and Samsung's enhancements are high-quality and well thought out. The keyboard cover seems ingenious, but I did not see a place to stow the S-Pen. I bought a cheap USB-C hub for keyboard, mouse, video and power. It did not keep the computer charged, so I had to buy the Samsung-branded USB-C hub for it. It works great now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very capable I am very surprised with the speed of this tablet. It is able to handle multiple windows opened in chrome running video as well as facebook being open at the same time. Other computers with similar processor have difficulties. As others have mentioned the keyboard is not suited for being on a lap. I have been having some keyboard responsiveness problems, even as I write this review. It could be me not being used to it yet. The other problem I have been having is the keyboard falling over by its self on the dinning room table, also while I am typing this review. The pen is awesome. no lag noticed at all. I will update my problems as familiarity with the system grows. Thus far other than what I have mentioned, I think this is a good system. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Galaxy 12" 256GB Out of the box it was a very cool, eye pleasing device. First thing first there are always updates to be done to a new device. Setup: Setup was simple walk through the only time I had a bump in the road was with Flow app to my cell but that was minor. Booting up the unit was very fast compared to other devices I've used, I don't know if that is because its a powerhouse or just new, I'm thinking powerhouse at 256GB/8GB ram. Pros: Unit functions very well, cool to go from tablet to laptop so easily. Battery life is as advertised, liking the AMOLED display. Keyboard is user friendly as I have bigger finger and usually hit more than 1 key. I don't have much of a problem. Touchscreen is very handy and also works well. Con: The pen is a bit touchy and takes a bit to used too, now I'm fine with it. One time it did a windows stall and I had to force a shutdown. Hadn't had an issue since been a couple of weeks. Overall: I not sure I was ready to buy a new computer yet, but I really enjoyed this unit and was not let down at all. Recommend to anyone shopping, get a Galaxy! As I sit in a campground writing this on vacation with ease. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
