  • 1Description

Take your work and entertainment with you on-the-go with the 12" Galaxy Book 12 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook from Samsung. Its 2-in-1 design lets you quickly change from typing in laptop mode to writing, drawing, and more in tablet mode using the included S-Pen stylus or even your fingers. Moreover, its 12" display features a 2160 x 1440 resolution and multi-touch capabilities, so you'll be able to utilize touch gestures and commands within Windows 10 to enhance its efficiency and accessibility.

Powered by a 3.1 GHz Intel 7th Gen Core i5 dual-core processor and 4GB of RAM, it can handle multitasking and quickly accessing frequently used files and programs. For storing your photos, videos, and files, it's equipped with a 128GB solid-state drive. Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi, which lets you connect to the 5 GHz band for faster speeds. Other integrated features include two webcams, a microphone, speakers, a 3.5mm mic and headphone combo jack, and two USB 3.1 Type-C port. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

Seamlessly Connected
Connect your Samsung Book and Samsung smartphone to share files wirelessly, even without Wi-Fi. You'll also be able to receive and response to notifications from third party and native apps.
More Ways to Do More
Swap from typing in laptop mode to tablet mode and use the included S-Pen or your fingers to take notes, doodle, and more.
Super AMOLED Display
The Galaxy Book 12 features a Super AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1440 resolution, so you can enjoy crisp and clear content with vivid colors.
Lightning Quick
The Galaxy Book 12 can last up to 11 hours of video playback on a single charge. Recharge it quickly thanks to Adaptive Fast Charging, which can recharge it fully in under three hours.
Expandable Memory

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.

    Samsung 12 reviews

    12" Galaxy Book 12 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Laptop Replacement This is a great computer that is in the form of a tablet. Love having the versatility of the touch screen and the keyboard. Allows for freedom with both options. Great replacement of my laptop computer with a 12 inch screen. I no longer will have to carry around my heavy laptop. This device is powerful and has so many options to customize and use so many different ways. Love having my work office 365 email on device as well as our point of sale software to simplify my life. The screen is top in its line the colors are fantastic. The startup is extremely fast when you power on the device. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Great computer/tablet combo. The Samsung Galaxy Book's design is convenient and portable. It is lightweight and the keyboard cover provides good protection. The set up had quick and easy walk through instructions. I watch a lot of videos on YouTube. The Samsung galaxy book streams videos quickly. The 12" screen is great for watching videos. The clarity, color, and sharpness parallels any hi definition TV. It also has great sound and battery life is good. This is my first experience using Windows 10. I have found it easy to adapt to. The keyboard size is great to use, however I do miss having a keypad . Overall, I think this is a great device. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    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 My Greatest Tech Find of 2017. 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 A Near Perfect 2-In-1 Samsung Galaxy Book delivers on performance, battery life and price. With a Core i5, 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage i did not expect it to do much but handled all i threw at it. i used it as daily driver for web browsing, spreadsheets, video conferencing, and word processing. It was smooth even underload. The price for what you get in the box is also great considering other 2-in-1's do not come with a stylus and a keyboard that are both useable and great. The screen is beautiful and bright. i never had to set the brightness above 60 percent. Its a great product and Samsung did well to cover all the bases.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leap forward! I have been using the same gaming laptop for the past six years, so I came back to the computer purchasing scene with somewhat outdated opinions. At first I was skeptical of the tablet style replacement laptops, but after some research I chose the Samsung Galaxy Book and I'm glad I did. Pros Portability and convenience: My laptop which weighed around 8 pounds, so the slim form factor and weight of the Galaxy Book is a welcome relief. I can fit in a messenger bag with a lot of other materials instead of a dedicated bag that I hate carrying around. Processing Power: So far, I haven't managed to throw anything at this computer that it can't handle. I am a regular Photoshop and Maya user so performance is a key factor for me. Display: The resolution and colors of the AMOLED display are amazing. Pen: Very responsive and a great new tool that I look forward to finding ways to incorporate into my workflows. Micro SD card: I love that I am able to add more storage to this tablet, or even switch out SD cards in the future as I need if a project requires a lot of dedicated space. Minor Cons: Pen: Really wish it had a second button. "Laptop" Use: The keyboard is a little too flexible and the folio kickstand isn't great for use on a bare lap. Battery: I would say under normal use I get 6-8 hours out of the battery, instead of the promoted 11 hours. Summary The Samsung Galaxy Book is a well-made computer that can handle anything you need a PC to do, with the bonus that it has the form factor and portability of a tablet. I would definitely recommend this to anyone seeking to purchase a new laptop. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from With only 4 gigs of RAM, this Galaxy Book falls to it's knees! I was excited when this 2 in 1 Windows tablet was announced. The original announcements were saying Windows 10 Pro, and 8 gigs of RAM. But for whatever reason, Samsung is restricting the Win 10 Pro version to their business unit. Furthermore, they are not releasing a 8gig Win 10 Pro in a LTE version. As for this 4 gig version, I have had opportunity's to try it out, and right out of the box, it is slow and cumbersome. The real back breaker for this tablet is when I loaded Photoshop Lightroom, It should have been the perfect program for a Windows Tablet with a pressure sensitive pen, and a Intel i5 processor, but it was not to be. With only 4 gigs, it could not handle it. I was trying some very simple color corrections, and image cropping that should have only taken seconds, even on a early 2000's computer, but with this, it took nearly 10 minutes.
