Amazon now offers the 15.6-inch Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro i7/16GB/512GB for $1,149.99 shipped. Normally at $1,350, this $200 price drop marks a return to the all-time low price we’ve seen and matches the Prime Day 2022 deal. Equipped with a 12th Gen Intel i7 processor, you can take advantage of four performance cores and eight efficiency cores to perform heavier workloads while consuming power during lighter tasks. You’ll also get a 15.6-inch 1080p AMOLED display and an enhanced 1080p wide-angle webcam built-in. Those using Samsung Galaxy smartphones will be able to sync with this laptop, allowing you to access files on either device and even send text messages using your computer. This same feature will allow you to use your Samsung Tab S8 tablet as a secondary display for increased productivity. See below to find out more.
While this Samsung laptop is perfect for those looking for an office and school work machine, those who want more power can opt for the Acer Nitro 5 i7/8GB/512GB/RTX 3050 Ti gaming laptop for $969 In place. Here you’ll be using the 11th Gen Intel i7 processor with RTX 3050 Ti graphics, which is a step up from the integrated Intel graphics you get above. The screen is the same size at 15.6-inches with the same 1080p resolution but runs at a 144Hz refresh rate. The total amount of RAM available here is also halved to 8GB, though that’s still plenty for that most modern games work fine. Wi-Fi 6 support is also present here. A unique feature of the Nitro 5 that isn’t found in many laptops is the Alexa Show Mode which lets you use the machine as a Show-like device when you’re not busy playing games.
If you’d rather upgrade to Apple’s latest M2 processor, you can pick up the all-new M2 MacBook Pro 256GB model for $1,149 or the 512 GB model for $1,299 which corresponds to the historical low. The 13.3-inch Retina display and its 500 nits of brightness with P3 wide color support are complemented by a pair of Thunderbolt ports, Wi-Fi 6, and the latest backlit Magic Keyboard.
