Samsung Galaxy Book 12 is a fully complete Windows 10 tablet with keyboard cover and pen included, and the model with $330 off is the Intel Core i5 (7200U) Kaby Lake powered model with 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage.
Samsung Galaxy Book 12 was the first ultraportable large Windows tablet, and with a thickness of just 7.4mm for a 12-inch tablet it’s easy to see why.

The keyboard has 3 levels of backlight brightness, and the Samsung S Pen has 4096 pressure levels of sensitivity and tilt support.
Important main specs includes a Super AMOLED screen with 2160 x 1440 resolution, a 10.5 hour battery life, complete Wi-Fi covering 2×2 MIMO 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi Direct, it has Bluetooth 4.1, stereo speakers, GPS, GLONASS, accelerometer, hall sensor, light sensor, a 3.5 mm audio combo jack, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, a 13MP rear camera with 4K video recording, and a 5MP front camera with Full HD support.
A sometimes useful feature is also the support for Samsung Flow, if you want to pair or sync it with an Android phone. All in all, the generally best equipped portable Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet on the market in the first half of 2018.
