It has an S-Pen and large trackpad for easy input and has a good display that you'd expect from a Samsung device. It's available in both 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch variants. It runs on an Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor and Iris Plus graphics or NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics if you're outside the U.S..
