The days of Windows and Intel may be coming to an end. The Samsung Galaxy Book S claims to offer up to 23 hours of battery life while using the Surface Pro X all day.
The new Microsoft Surface Pro X uses a 13-inch screen and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor called the SQ1 ARM chip. The X features a slim bezel and is closer to a 12-inch device and weighs just 1.68 pounds.
The Microsoft Surface Pro X Pen is a thin version of the Surface Pen that fits into a charging pad in the keyboard cover. As a Surface Series device, the keyboard and stylus will be sold separately, and adding both will cost you $ 269 more.
The Galaxy Book S runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, similar to many other smartphones, rather than the standard Intel processor, and is expected to offer longer battery life, even with a premium 4G connection.
The device also features a more traditional design than a modern one, but with a starting price of $ 999 you won’t have to buy an additional keyboard.
