Samsung’s 2023 line of premium thin and light laptops are now available for pre-order worldwide and the notebooks should be generally available beginning February 22nd.

Starting prices range from $1050 for a Samsung Galaxy Book 3 360 convertible notebook with an Intel Core i7-1360P processor to $1900 for a Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra with a Core i7-13700H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 graphics.

All of the laptops feature AMOLED displays, 13th-gen Intel Core processors, and thin and light designs… although some are thinner and/or lighter than others.

The Galaxy Book3 Ultra is probably the most interesting member of the lineup. It’s Samsung’s first notebook to bear the Ultra name, and Samsung helps justify that price by packing this model with high-performance features like support for up to a Core i9-13900H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics, and 32GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra

Measuring 0.7 inches thick and weighing less than 4 pounds, it’s still a fairly compact notebook. But if you value portability over performance, some of Samsung’s new 13.3 inch and 14 inch models weigh less than 2.6 pounds (but those models don’t have discrete graphics).

Here’s an overview of Samsung’s 2023 notebook lineup. All models are up for pre-order now, and customers who place an order before February 17th will get a 1TB SSD for the price of a model with 512GB of storage.

  1. “From what I’ve been seeing, this probably isn’t accurate. Not only do basically all laptops have a UEFI/BIOS chip soldered to the motherboard, they’re writable by the OS so you can get firmware updates that way. Smarter designs can have an active/fallback firmware partition scheme. Many can even be written to by an external computer while the laptop is totally off.”

    You are proving my point and yet saying its not accurate. In dell laptops if bios is corrupted u can rewrite it from a bios file from support. Here Samsung wont give u a bios file at all, Smarter designs are getting more dumber and dumber. I was able to get the bios file but no way to flash it. In this model if the bios file gets corrupted u cant even go into recovery so much for your fall back partition which is good if u can boot into recovery. This and other samsung models dont even go into recovery and the screen will be back. What a mess. I hope you are not from Samsung PR.

  2. A little too pricey for me, getting close to a mac book price. I would personally just buy a mac book.

  3. Please do a favour, never buy a Samsung Laptop as they write the bios on a chip soldered to the motherboard and it cant be flashed like old times. Also u will not get the bios file online from support. So if the data on the chip is corrupted ur done u will have to send it to their stupid customer service and get charged a huge bill worse than Apple. Atleast apple stores will tell u upfront how costly it is. There are no samsung stores for laptop to help you so basically you are at their mercy. I have the NP950QCG model and I was lucky to get a replacement part from ebay to fix my laptop. LG laptops are way better than Samsung laptops. Other than NOTE phones samsung software and hardware design sucks on most of them.

  4. Too expensive comparativly.
    And cust service stinks. I have a tablet I had to mail it back to them 3x. Each time they mail it back saying it’s fixed. – it’s not. I called their repair office in Texas and no one can even tell me what they did on it. They like to take your money but don’t give a damn about you.

  5. Waits until AMOLED becomes standard then replaced by next gen SUPER AMOLED but instead buys a basic LED display at 1/10th the cost.
