Well, I’m not a laptop person, but looking at the specs, I’m not interested in these laptops, why there are no high resolutions option, 2K or 4K. If you want more than 512GB of internal storage, you will need to choose the Galaxy Book Pro 360, the Galaxy Book Pro configuration max out at 512GB. Only the convertible version some with the S Pen, which is understandable. I also noticed that the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is equipped with the Wi-Fi 6E, while the Galaxy Book Pro has the Wi-Fi 6. Even though the port configurations are different on each model it’s not really a big deal, because there are workarounds. Touting this laptop around all day shouldn’t be a problem, it’s lightweight & will last you through your workday or pleasure day with the fully charged 20-hour battery.
