Save $400.99: The Samsung Galaxy Book Ion 13.3-inch laptop (8GB memory, 512GB SSD, QLED display) is on sale for $799 at Amazon as of March 11.
Portability is the top feature a lot of us want from a brand new laptop. Unfortunately, many of the ultraportable varieties like a MacBook Pro or Air get a little pricey the slimmer they get. But thin and cheap is still possible without sacrificing power if you consider the Samsung Galaxy Book.
The latest Samsung Galaxy Book Ion 13.3-inch laptop with a QLED display is on sale for just $799 at Amazon. That matches its lowest price during Black Friday and saves you $400.99 or 33% off the original price.
This configuration of the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion includes a 10th Generation Intel Core i7-10510U processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB off SSD internal storage, and Windows10 Home. It might not have the powerful M1 chip of a MacBook Air, but it offers the same amount of RAM and double the storage for $200 less. For most users, whether for business or school, this offers enough performance for everyday tasks. It boots up fast, offers speedy connections with the latest generation of WiFi, weighs in at just 3.52 pounds, and is about half an inch when closed.
It also offers a stunning QLED display in 1920×1080 resolution and vibrant colors even in direct sunlight. Best of all, you get up to 22 hours of battery life and the ability to wirelessly charge devices right on the trackpad. And depending on which external devices you rely on, you can pick from a variety of ports such as one Thunderbolt 3, one HDMI, two USB 3.0, and others.
For anyone who prefers sleek laptops without the MacBook upcharge, the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion at $799 is worth a look.
