These PCs are Samsung’s most mobile Galaxy Books yet, with Galaxy Book Pro 13-inch weighing just 0.87kg , and measuring just 11.2mm thin—no need to make any tradeoffs when packing a purse or bag. The compactness doesn’t come at the expense of durability, either. These PCs are built with military-grade of durability and 6000-series aluminum, the same alloy trusted by leading aerospace manufacturers around the world.

But if you do need to charge up in a pinch, the Galaxy Book Pro series supports 65W Fast charging, so you can top off the device quickly with a USB Type-C adapter.

The Galaxy Book Pro Series is powered by next-generation hardware, including an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and Intel® Iris® X e graphics. The Galaxy Book Pro series is verified to the Intel® Evo™ platform, signifying an industry-leading balance of power, immersive graphics, always-on connectivity, and long-lasting battery life. The Intelligent Performance Manager also deftly adapts to your computer position, environment, and system load. Automatically modulating fan noise, temperature, and battery usage will balance performance and power consumption to deliver a smooth experience that lasts all day so you can say bye to lag and multitask seamlessly with ease.

Galaxy Book Pro 360 comes with an upgraded S Pen right in the box—now 2.5x thicker for a more true-to-life writing experience.
