Samsung Galaxy Book is one of the sleekest Windows 10 tablets you'll see

It comes in 10- and 12-inch models and ships with a keyboard and stylus.

Don't judge a Galaxy Book by its keyboard cover

The Samsung Galaxy Book looks like a sleek Android tablet, but it's actually a capable Windows 10 tablet.

It comes in two sizes, a 10- and 12-inch model, and both ship with a keyboard and stylus.

Stylus and keyboard included

Some tablets (like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4) make you pay extra for the keyboard. Not the Galaxy Book.

Keyboard case with built-in stand

The keyboard cover has a built-in stand, instead of the tablet itself having a stand built into it.

This design choice helps keep the Galaxy Book nice and trim.

A nice combo

The Galaxy Book's case is a nice combination between the Microsoft Surface Pro 4's keyboard and the Apple iPad Pro's slim keyboard cover.

Comfortable keys

We only spent a short time with it, but it felt comfortable to type on.

Touch screen

Like a typical tablet, it has a touch screen. Unlike a typical tablet, the 12-inch model has a remarkably sharp AMOLED screen.

Two sizes

Both tablet variants are very portable and slim, especially for devices meant to replace a laptop.

Never needs to be charged

The S-Pen stylus that comes with the tablet never needs to be charged.

Rubber tip

It has a rubber tip that's meant to emulate the feel of writing on paper.

It's no Note

There is some stylus software integration, but it's not as robust as what you'd find on a Samsung Note device.

Samsung Flow

The Galaxy Book features Samsung Flow, which syncs text messages across Samsung Galaxy devices.

Serious Surface Pro 4 competition

If you're interested in a Windows 10 device that's easy to carry around and sleek AF, look no further than the Samsung Galaxy Book.
