Samsung underwhelmed in our CPU tests, but easily cleared the 4,000 points that indicate competent office productivity. It's not the quickest by a long shot, but its gorgeous screen makes it a favorite for Photoshop work. None of these ultraportables is in the same ZIP code as a true gaming laptop.

Sentiment Score[*] 74%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Samsung has also pre-installed many of its own apps on the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro. These apps, like Samsung Gallery and Samsung Notes will be familiar to anyone who has a Samsung phone or tablet, as they are the same as the ones that come preinstalled on those devices. Samsung's frustrating decision to pre-install a trial of McAfee anti-virus on the Galaxy Book pro is a shame.
