The Galaxy Book Go is a Windows on ARM PC that runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor. It provides decent battery life and has an option for LTE connectivity (note that the $250 model only has Wi-Fi). It features a fanless design, so you don’t have to worry about noise. You can also rest it anywhere without having to worry about heat.
Since the Samsung Galaxy Book Go is a Windows on ARM PC, it has some limitations that you need to know about. Windows on ARM PCs cannot natively run x64 apps. Windows 11 can run these types of apps in emulation, but Windows 10 cannot. In non-technical terms, the Samsung Galaxy Book Go is fine for some workflows, but you need to check if the apps you want will run on it. Our executive editor explains this in more detail in his Galaxy Book Go review.
The bottom line is that you’d be hard-pressed to find a solid Windows laptop for a better price than the Galaxy Book Go on Black Friday.
