The Samsung Galaxy Book S (Intel) is on sale for $200 off ahead of Black Friday. The thin-and-light laptop delivers up to 17 hours of battery life and utilizes Intel Hybrid Technology. Following its discount, you can grab the Galaxy Book S starting at $750.

The Intel Hybrid Technology inside the Galaxy Book S is built to deliver good battery life without sacrificing performance. The laptop has a body that's only 11.8 mm (0.46 in) at its thickest point. It's also exceptionally light at just 960 grams (2.1 lbs).

There are two versions of the Galaxy Book S; an ARM-powered version that we reviewed earlier this year, and the Intel version that's currently discounted. The ARM version of the Galaxy Book S has a longer battery life listed (23 hours vs 17 hours), but some might not like the fact that it has app limitations. In contrast, the Intel version of the Galaxy Book S can run apps without any limitations and still gets up to 17 hours of battery life.
