Today, during Samsung’s Unpacked event, the company unveiled a handful of new laptops, called the Galaxy Book 3, intended for both casual and power users.

All of them fall under the Book 3 badge and, as the number indicates, are a follow-up to the company’s Book 2 line of laptops.

The three models include the Galaxy Book 3 Pro, the Book 3 Pro 360, and the Book 3 Pro Ultra. The Pro and Pro 360 are now available for preorder, with availability starting on February 17.

The Book 3 Ultra has also opened up availability, with Samsung planning to ship on February 24.

The Book 3 Pro 360 is Samsung’s laptop that doubles as a tablet. The screen sits on a rotating hinge that can be turned all the way around and used flat, like an everyday tablet.

However, unlike most tablets, the Book 3 Pro 360 features the power of the regular Book 3 Pro. It has the same 13th-generation Core i7 processor for impressive power on the go.

Plus, it comes with the popular S-Pen stylus for the ultimate Galaxy touchscreen experience.

Like the Book 3 Pro, the Book 3 Pro 360 comes with 16GB of RAM and starts at 512GB of storage for $1,699.99. However, it’s only available with a 16″ screen.

Samsung is going all in on laptops this year with the new Book 3 lineup. Whether you’re looking for a combination laptop/tablet or a premium device for creativity, the lineup has something to offer.
