For terminals with an estimated value of at least 1500 euros, the bonus amount is 300 euros. For devices worth less than 1500 euros, the bonus increases to 200 euros. A good way to finance your new laptop at a lower cost.

Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book2 Pro
Easily transportable and easy to handle, the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book2 Pro stand out with their light and slender design. Count a thickness of only 11.7 mm and a featherweight of 1.11 kg for the Galaxy Book2 Pro 15.6”, 11.9 mm and 1.41 kg for the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 15.6”.
The main difference between the two models is that the Galaxy Book2 Pro comes in the form of a classic ultrabook, while the 360 version is a 2-in1 hybrid laptop that can be converted into a tablet. It is also equipped with a touch screen and comes with an S Pen included. The stylus is precise and benefits from a very low latency time for a particularly fluid writing and drawing experience. The Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 can also connect to mobile networks, with 5G compatibility. Both also support Wi-Fi 6E, the latest standard in home wireless connectivity.
The 15.6 or 13.3 inch screen with Full HD + definition is based in both cases on AMOLED technology, a feature that is still rare on laptops, which very often remain stuck on LCD. This guarantees, among other things, better contrasts and deeper blacks.
For professionals and creatives, Samsung has also ensured that its computers deliver the best performance. To do this, the brand has opted for 12th generation Intel Core processors, the famous Alder Lake with an improved 10 nm engraving process. More precisely, it is the powerful i7-1260P clocked up to 4.6 GHz which is on board here. The graphics part is entrusted to an Intel Iris Xe GPU. The presence of 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 1 TB NVMe SSD storage also contributes to the speed and power of the system.
Autonomy is one of the great strengths of the Galaxy Book2 Pro. It is entrusted to a 68 Wh battery, and thanks to the optimization of CPU consumption, the laptop can endure up to 21 hours of consecutive video playback.
Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book2 Pro are both Intel EVO certified. This means that they meet strict specifications in terms of component quality, performance, design, responsiveness, disconnection time, etc.
Galaxy Book2 360 and Galaxy Book2
The Galaxy Book2 360 and Galaxy Book2 are more affordable alternatives to their elders and retain the distinction between 2-in-1 model with touch screen for the first and classic design for the second. In both cases, the PCs offer an elegant aesthetic as well as a certain comfort of use, in 13.3 inches for the Galaxy Book2 360 and in 15.6 inches for the Galaxy Book2, which is entitled to a backlit keyboard with numeric keypad.
These models also benefit from a 12th generation Intel processor, with Intel EVO certification for the Galaxy Book2 360, as well as a high-end connected experience thanks to the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem. For example, you can wirelessly connect a Galaxy Tab S tablet to the computer in order to use it as an external display, with the possibility of duplicating or extending the display, and controlling everything with the only keyboard of the Galaxy Book2.
The Quick Share feature is the most practical way to send files wirelessly between different Samsung Galaxy devices: PC, tablet, smartphone… The interoperability between the brand’s terminals is impressive. In addition, Private Share allows the exchanged files to be encrypted using blockchain technology.
Note that the Galaxy Book2 will only arrive in the coming months.
