Samsung announced the Galaxy Book3 Ultra earlier this year at the company's Unpacked event. The Galaxy Book3 Ultra is the flagship PC from the latest generation of Galaxy Books. It runs on up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i9 and NVIDIA RTX 4070 graphics, making it one of the most powerful laptops in its class.

The screen of the laptop is a Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display with a resolution of 2880 x 1800 and a refresh rate of 120HZ. That display tech was first used in Samsung's Galaxy phones, but it has now made its way to laptops. The display is also VESA ClearMR, DisplayHDR TRUE BLACK 500, and SGS Eye Care Display certified.

The Galaxy Book3 Ultra starts at $1,900 for the model with an Intel Core i7, 16GB of memory, and 512 GB of storage. For a limited time, those that preorder the PC can double the storage up to 1 TB at no additional cost. Upgrading to that amount of storage would normally cost an additional $500.
