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 Laptop, 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.

    12" Galaxy Book 12 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I have never owned a Samsung product before and this product is amazing. I am really impressed with the speed of the Samsung tablet. The screen quality is amazing and clear. I use it outside and I travel with it too. It is so easy to use and the battery life is great too. The keyboard is great to have and makes the tablet become a small laptop. I like windows 10 on the tablet as the graphics are clear. The processor is fast and keeps up with all the demands i throw at it. The Spen is so great..easy to use and the touch with the pen is so awesome. I will be purchasing more Samsung products for sure. Impressive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for School. The galaxy book system functionality is everything I ever used and needed in any laptop I ever used. That being said, everything else is an added feature. The screen is brilliant and unlike any laptop I have ever used. The closest I can compare this to is the high definition in the Samsung S8. Everything is crystal clear and beautiful. The battery life is awesome, and the charger is even an added perk because carrying this around is beyond easy. The only change I would make would be a sturdier keyboard. At times this can be difficult to use on the bed or not on a hard surface. Beyond that, perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Laptop Replacement I have had the Galaxy Book 12 for almost 2 months and it has been a great laptop replacement. I have been in between laptops and tabs and found that what I want to do a smaller size screen tabs lack and I don't want to carry around a much heavier laptop. The Galaxy Book has been more than what I wanted. With most storage nowadays cloud base I don't have to worry about running out of memory. The only thing that I have not found useful is the S Pen. Not only is there not really a use for it, there is no where to store it. My kids use the pen for drawings but tend to leave it laying around. With that being the biggest downfall for me I would still recommend this to anyone looking to get a new laptop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Notebook I'm testing the Samsung galaxy book 12 (128gb) part a promotional campaign. I'm very impressed with this 2-in 1 tablet . It's very high in and super convertible. With work and school in my everyday life this notebook has been a must and very reliable. With wifi, S pen, windows 10, Microsoft pro... I'm very satisfied..the lightweight keyboard is wonderful & very sleek. I've had several 2-in 1 laptops/ tablets in the past but the Samsung galaxy book 12 is the best thus far. The battery life is impressive, long lasting.The S pen stays in place while not in use. My daughter is an artist and she loves preparing her artwork on the Samsung galaxy book. This notebook is magnificent. I recommend the Samsung galaxy book 12.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tablet The Samsung Galaxy book is light weighted and thin. When I hold it, it does not feel bulky at all. The Galaxy Book booted up very quickly in a matter of seconds. You want to make sure that you upgrade Windows 10 first before doing anything else. I like that it charges using a usb-c cord so I can just carry one charger around to charge my Galaxy Book and my Galaxy S8 plus. Samsung flow connected seamlessly with my S8 and it doubles as a hotspot for the Galaxy Book which is a big plus. I used the Galaxy book to stream cable/dvr and the video posed no problems, the graphics are great and the duel speakers on each side sounds better than most tablets/laptops. I played a couple online flash games and did not suffer any performance issues. I got about 6-7 hours of battery life per use. The S-Pen works very well. I was able to rest my hand on the surface of the screen and write with ease. The keyboard cover feels sturdy but I did find the magnets not very strong to hold the tablet onto the keyboard. When I close the tablet with the keyboard, I would fold it down from the top (like closing a laptop lid) and most of the time, it ends up popping out of the magnetic base.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Samsung Galaxy Book After a week or so of having the Samsung Galaxy Book, all I can say is Wow! This tablet is incredible. The operating system is wonderfully fast. The screen is simply great. The sound quality is nice. The device connects easily to the internet and Bluetooth devices. And the design is wonderful. However, when there is no activity on the device, the keyboard does lag slightly but that's no big deal. The S pen's design makes it easy to use and is very responsive to the screen. I watched several movies on the device and streaming was so smooth. The movie basically jumped off the screen with such vibrant colors. After I changed the font size and display options to fit my needs, I have been having a ball with the device. Now my only question is can the device connect to an external hard drive or to my main computer to add additional programs?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of both worlds! The Galaxy Book is a remarkable 2-in-1 like no other. With its elegant and thin design, the Galaxy Book exceeded my expectations on portability, comfort, and presentation. With my colleagues, friends, family, and acquaintances the Galaxy Book is always a topic of conversation because of its amazingly stunning presentation and performance. With no special gimmicks, it's simply a powerful tablet that will take on any task and execute them efficiently. Its connectivity ability, I can transfer important files and receive and reply to messages from my phone in one device so I don't have to step away from my task. Also, the Galaxy Book can run software like photoshop and stream content on the highest quality outstandingly while displaying it gorgeously on its OLED screen. Included with this amazing tablet are the keyboard and S-Pen. On Photoshop the S-Pen is the perfect tool to make precise editing for hours and immerse yourself in your work without the worry to charge it or pair it. Moreover, the Galaxy Book comes with amazing battery life. Although my day consists of heavy work, communication, tasking, and entertainment the Galaxy Book's battery life keeps up with all my needs. When it's time to charge the fast-charging feature will get me back and running in minutes to continue with my busy schedule. Overall, the Galaxy Book is the 2-in-1 the device that fits the needs of the person that wants it all in one device it provides efficient multi tasking, beautiful design/display, and no limitations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Five stars.. best 2-in-1 tablets I received my Galaxy Book a few hours ago and wanted to share some early impressions. I bought the 256gb SSD and here are some early impressions. First of all, it is much better than its predecessor. I really like having an active cooling system with a fan. So far the Galaxy Book seems to be able to maintain a good temperature for the CPU. I love using the pen, and when you take out the tablet it gives you 2 options: or you can keep on working within the PC set-up or you can move it to a tablet format. Smoothly transaction and it really allows you to keep using the device. I am really impressed with the battery life while using the computer with very light usage. Microsoft and Samsung have done a great job of limiting CPU usage while the computer is on battery power only. Only points to improve is the weight (it is heavier than I was expecting), but for the rest, perfect device to use between your workbench.
