Hinge

The hinge design on this laptop elevates it by 2° for a more comfortable typing position while allowing air to pass below it.

QLED Display

Samsung's QLED displays are constructed with Quantum Dot technology to improve color volume and offer a more vivid viewing experience.

Outdoor Mode

At default, this laptop has a 400 cd/m² brightness rating; however, it can reach up to 600 cd/m² in Outdoor Mode for use under the sun.

Wireless Power Share

When not in use, the touchpad can be converted to a wireless Qi charging pad by pressing Fn + F11. Please note that it requires a minimum of 30% to share.

Charge & Go

Rated for more than 20 hours of use, the fast-charging battery is designed for life on-the-go. It also supports portable battery pack and mobile phone charging.

AKG by Harmon Audio

The dual speakers tuned by AKG deliver cinematic-quality sound while Smart Amp technology helps to increase maximum volume output, while offering a fully immersive sound experience

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is the next-gen Wi-Fi standard, improving a variety of features including data rates, capacity, performance in dense environments, and power efficiency.

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.

Worst Experience

By Angela
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2021-08-23

i am lucky enough to have access to free laptops at work. however, they are cheap and break quickly, and of poor quality. thus, i decided to buy myself an expensive good laptop. i bought this laptop and was initially excited. it is lightweight and the graphics are wonderful! the fingerprint id pad broke within weeks. my screen broke and stopped functioning while away on a work trip. please note, i did not drop it or damage it, it just stopped functioning. i sent it in for repair. now, only a month later and the screen does not function again. i almost wish they would just refund my money, take this terrible laptop back, and i can purchase something else. maybe i just got a lemon, but i say, stay away! zero stars!

Fantastic laptop

this is just a fantastic laptop. the screen is gorgeous, colors pop, and the blacks are deep. keyboard is enjoyable to type on, and trackpad is roomy and responsive. i love the selection of ports on this laptop as well as the upgradable ram slot (inside the laptop). battery life is amazing and charging is quick. personal preference but i think the color is beautiful, color changing finish can be everything from a candy pink to a silvery blue. aesthetically i can not fault this laptop in anyway. needed improvements: right shift button has been shrunk for fingerprint sign in, make it whole again. needs laptop usb-c charging and do away with the barrel charger. thats it! others complain sound is lacking, i say its actually really good, it just doesn't get as loud as other laptops.

NOT A TOUCHSCREEN!

My major issue with the Galaxy book ion is that on B&H it says it is touchscreen when it is NOT. Without the touch screen the touchpad is inoperable while using the wireless charging feature. It is my fault for not reading the specs from the Samsung site to verify the accuracy. Other than that the laptop is just what I was looking for. Sound is just ok but the display is nice. it gets pretty bright, so I keep mine at less than 50%.
