The brand new MacBook Professionals are a whole lot of issues, however low-cost isn’t one. Efficiency, it appears, comes at a worth. It’s actually a philosophy Samsung has lengthy subscribed to with its highest-end merchandise. Take the group of laptops it introduced alongside the Galaxy S23 at right this moment’s Unpacked occasion.
There are, fittingly, three major SKUs for the Galaxy Ebook 3:

Samsung does seem to have the MacBook Professionals and Microsoft Surfaces of the world firmly in its sights right here, with a concentrate on artistic workflows (and a few highly effective gaming capabilities as well — one thing Apple’s first-party silicon frankly isn’t fairly able to compete with).
The techniques undertake the Galaxy cellphone line’s Dynamic AMOLED 2X show. Right here it’s 2880 x 1880 (3K decision) and has a 120 Hz refresh charge and a 16:10 facet ratio. The Professional 360, in the meantime, is the one one of many bunch that sports activities a contact display screen (with stylus performance). The Extremely begins with 16 GB of RAM (as much as 32 GB) and 512 GB of storage (as much as 1 TB).
Consistent with Samsung’s large sustainability push of the previous couple of years, the three machines have been constructed partially from plastics recycled from discarded fishing nets. All are up from preorder beginning right this moment. The Professional and Professional 360 will begin delivery February 17.
