Samsung’s Galaxy Book Go is one of the more portable 14-inch laptops out there. It has a 180-degree hinge and a durable design. The laptop in this deal has a 14-inch (1920 x 1080) LED display, 2.5-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 8-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, integrated graphics, and 128GB of storage.
In our Samsung Galaxy Book Go review, we liked its great battery life and solid speakers. The Galaxy Book Go scored an overall performance test rating of 1,653 —identical to the average budget laptop. Although it didn’t blow us away with multitasking, you should have just enough oomph for basic tasks like creating docs, managing email, web browsing, and streaming Netflix.
With a weight of 3.2 pounds and 0.6 inches thick, the Galaxy Book Go is super-portable. It’s lighter and thinner than the Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook (3.5 pounds, 0.8 inches) and on par with the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (3.2 pounds, 0.7 inches).
Port-wise, the Galaxy Book Go equips you with the basics. You include two USB Type-C ports, a USB 2.0 port and headphone jack. It also has a built-in microSD card slot for transferring files and storage expansion.
If you’re looking for a travel-friendly sub-$300 laptop with all-day battery life, the Galaxy Book Go is worth considering.
