Design

1.Has a backlit keyboard
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
The keyboard is backlit, making it easier to type in the dark or dim lighting.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.width

200.4mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.volume

437.87cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
7.height

287.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
8.Has a detachable keyboard
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
You can detach the keyboard of your device and use the screen as a tablet. Detaching the keyboard makes the device lighter and gives you the possibility to switch easily between laptop-mode and tablet-mode. The keyboard is included when buying the device.

Display

1.resolution

2160 x 1440px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.has a touch screen
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
4.has anti-reflection coating
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
This helps to reduce the reflection from your device.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
6.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.

Performance

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
6.Supports 64-bit
Samsung Galaxy Book 2 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 850)
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Connectivity

1.Has USB Type-C
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
2.has an HDMI output
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
3.supports Wi-Fi
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
4.has an external memory slot
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
5.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.

Battery

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

Features

1.has stereo speakers
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a front camera
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.Has a fingerprint scanner
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.
5.Stylus included
Samsung Galaxy Book 2
A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
