Samsung is finally selling laptops in the Netherlands again and offers, among other things, this surprisingly affordable Galaxy Book Go, with an enormous battery life.
Those who like a long battery life have secretly had the best laptop in recent years with a tablet. But a tablet is never really a laptop, and a computer remains a better device for those who have to get work done. There is a reason why tablets have such a long battery life: the chip. That's why we recommend this Galaxy Book Go from Samsung.
The 14-inch Windows laptop runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 chip. We have known Snapdragons from smartphones and tablets for years, and such devices last all day long. You can also expect that from this Galaxy Book Go. Samsung promises a battery life of up to 18 hours, although, in practice, this strongly depends on the use. But a working day or school day without a power outlet nearby is doable, which is the power of this laptop.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c is strong enough for everyday tasks, but a computer for games or image editing is not. The laptop's screen is 1080p but with a maximum brightness of 225 nits, indeed not bright. Also, it offers less color than more expensive laptops. The laptop comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The computer has a built-in 4G antenna and is independently mobile with a SIM card.
The Samsung Galaxy Book Go costs 449 euros and is available in silver.
