The Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra takes aim squarely at Apple's MacBook Pro 16-inch, going head-to-head in all the key areas. They're both 16-inches, both have beautiful aluminum chassis', excellent screens, and the largest trackpads you can find on laptops. Obviously, the Galaxy Book3 Ultra runs Windows, and is the ultimate laptop for creators who prefer Windows.

On the inside, we have an Intel 13th-Gen Core i7-13700H, which is a beast of a CPU for on-the-go creative workflows. That's paired with 16GB of RAM which gives plenty of headroom for multitasking and rendering. It also comes with a dedicated NVIDIA GPU in the form of the RTX 4050, which is well equipped to handle video rendering, 3D modelling, data crunching, and even a bit of light gaming.

That 16-inch display is also one of the best on the market. Rocking a 3K resolution with a 16:10 aspect ratio, paired with the fact it's utilizing AMOLED technology for inky deep blacks, it really is one of the best screens you can find on a Windows laptop currently. Oh, and did I mention it supports a 120Hz refresh rate?!

Then there's that keyboard and trackpad, which are large and glorious. The trackpad is huge, almost matching the massive trackpad found on the MacBook Pro. The keyboard is also lush, and includes a number pad for those who find use in those additional buttons. 

We've also got all the ports in the world, including a full-sized HDMI port, two Thunderbolt 4 equipped USB-C ports, a USB 3.2 Type A port, microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm audio jack. There's even Windows Hello face and fingerprint unlock to top things off.

Because this is a Samsung laptop, it also fits in perfectly with other Samsung devices. If you're invested in the Samsung ecosystem, you'll find the Galaxy Book3 Ultra is interoperable with your Galaxy phone, tablet, and other accessories, with seamless connectivity between them.
