This gorgeous, sleek looking notebook comes with a cinematic QLED display in either 15.6-inch or 13.3-inch screen sizes. It’s not a Chromebook and ideal for those who prefer Windows PCs. It is a very sleek, thin device that comes in an attractive Aura Silver color. There are also security features with the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion, such as an integrated fingerprint recognition sensor located right on the keyboard. Login via Windows Hello as well.
Samsung once brought QLED to TV, and now the brand is bringing it to laptops. With the Ion, users can browse the internet and experience crisp, clear details in photos and videos with up to 100% “Color Volume”. Quantum Dot technology keeps the display on this laptop series brilliant and easily readable even in direct sunlight. The Outdoor Mode is something most laptops don’t do well with at all.
Another design element that helps it stand out is its tilting capabilities. All you have to do is tilt the display back a bit and the spine elevates the keypad, allowing for a more comfortable angle for navigation and typing. The size of the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion measures 14.02 x 8.98 x 0.59 in inches (L x W x D) and just 2.62-lbs in weight. This is an extremely thin and light laptop.
Another thing for which Samsung is notorious for in its electronics is quality sound. Whether you’re watching a movie, listening to music, or showing a presentation, sound is provided with AKG stereo speakers. The volume level can be controlled by holding the Fn key and pressing F7 or F8.
