Samsung hasn't shared many of the details of the Galaxy Book (non-pro) but explains that both it and the Galaxy Book Pro are built for business use. The company summarizes the Galaxy Book by saying that it includes many of the same productivity features as the Galaxy Book Pro but that it comes at a lower price point.
Each new Samsung laptop works with the Samsung ecosystem, including Quick Share, SmartThings, Second Screen, and Your Phone.
Both laptops run Windows 10 Pro and are upgradable to Windows 11 Pro when the new OS launches later this year.
