The Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch has fast processors, an amazing display, more storage and an easy way to use the Internet when you aren’t home. That's why it's a great Surface Pro alternative. 

The Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch has some impressive features. Its gorgeous 12-inch 2,160 x 1,440 HDR AMOLED display offers deep blacks and super bright colors. Every model uses Intel 7th gen processors. This is a step down from the 8th Gen processors on the Surface Pro 6, and in line with the higher end Surface Pro 5 models. The better your processor, the better your PC is at loading programs, browsing the internet and handling everyday tasks. LTE connectivity lets the Galaxy Book 12-inch use data from your smartphone's data plan.

Samsung's 2-in-1 lasts for 11 hours of video on a three-hour charge. The Surface Pro 6 can handle just 13.5 hours of video playback before you need to charge it based on Microsoft's ratings

Samsung makes it easy for you to fit your new Galaxy Book 12-inch into your life if you have a Samsung smartphone. An S-Pen, the same stylus used for the Galaxy Note, comes included with every Galaxy Book. If you have one already, use this extra pen as a backup to write notes and sign documents. Samsung Flow logs you into the Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch when you unlock your Samsung phone.

Its most expensive model has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. That model costs $1,329.99. Verizon sells a $1,299.99 Samsung Galaxy Book that connects to its mobile data when you aren’t using Wi-Fi. Any model you buy, you save money compared to buying a Surface Pro 4 since the Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch's keyboard comes with the tablet.

    No mention of the Cube i7 Stylus? Should definitely be on the list as a budget pick….

    Hi there. I was wondering which of the mentioned models have at least 2 outputs that can be used as audio out simultaneously. I’m considering buying one of these devices, for basic mixing. One for cue and at least one for out.
