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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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