Whats wrong with S... moreWindows 10 is a solid OS but if for some reason you don't like it I see no reason why this hardware couldn't run a Linux distro. As for using it as a hackintosh, I'm not convinced you'd be able to get all the drivers you'd need.
I've just received my 10.6" model and I'm currently doing the requisite Windows updates. So far it seems like a pretty solid little bit of kit. I'm planning to stress test it by seeing how well it runs Ableton 9. That should be funny.
any sim we can use-3G,4G,5G,6G
Can we write by using our hand as like as our notebook and pen(ink)?
integrated light projector in side that we can write easily in Facebook in any language post it.

And linux? There are not enough users to market it to. Windows and Android has the most user base and these products are aimed at that market. That's why Ubuntu or other would be linux based products never get to production because there's not enough market. And if you're a linux user, chances are you have the ability to rig it to dual boot anyway.
yym, 27 Feb 2017looks interresting actually i was looking for something like this samsung tablet/laptop/2in1... moreAdding the ports you request would have made the thing twice as thick. At that point you might as well buy a Surface Pro 4. Though it doesn't have HDMI either.

I know it's hard for many to understand even now. But despite what the media wants to tell you, Windows is the only OS that gets productivity exactly right.
Mac OS would be a great alternative, except that Tim Cook, following after Steve Jobs, doesn't want you installing it on anything but their computers.
All is good, except there is no thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps, 4 lanes of PCI Express Gen 3) for eGPU support. When I back to office, I need a heavy GPU power for further productivity, such as, video editing, Nvidia Cuda base GPU rendering, GPU accelerated Cad, 2D CG, 3D CG application etc,..
It's a pity! no thunderbolt 3, no way.
Will look in HP Spectre x360 Convertible Laptop 15-bl075nr or Wait for Surface pro 5
The S Pen is not a "passive" pen - it is an active stylus but uses Wacom EMR technology so the power is in the screen digitizer and no battery is necessary. Passive (or capacitive) pens are not near as accurate nor fine-lined.
From Notebook Check, it seems to come with SSD's:
Samsung Galaxy Book 12 Convertible Review (First Impressions)
The storage solution (Samsung MZNTY256HDHP) of our pre-production sample has a capacity of 256 GB and manages good results in CrystalDiskMark, but cannot compete with PCIe-NVMe based solutions on the XPS 13 or the Lenovo Yoga 910, for instance.

There used to be a time when Galaxy exclusively meant Samsung Android offerings. Samsung Windows 2-in-1s or Windows Mobile were on the short-lived Ativ series as it made for easy differentiation. I guess now they decided to cash in on the "Galaxy" brand.
These look good. I wish they also released a new Android Tab with the 12 inch AMOLED 2160*1440 display. BTW I really appreciate how simple yet useful Samsung keeps their S-Pen allowing it to be backward compatible.
actually i was looking for something like this
samsung tablet/laptop/2in1/whatnot device with window10
10bit hdr oled highres display very nice
but this device has some serious missing features, which for me is a dealbreaker:
- no hdmi port?? whatta? so i can not use an external monitor/livingroom TV with it, no thanks (i don't want to hear about dongles, or some streaming crap)
- no standard usb ports, how am i supposed to use virtually any existing usb device with it, again no dongles, i don't have anything with usb c port, it is nice to have for the future but at this time i don't care about usb c i care about regular usb
- no hinge, so one can not use any display angle one likes? use some crappy display stand with 3 fixed positions? why? it is not usable in the lap on the bed, just on tabletop, why not use a regular pc then?
samsung please fix this, how can you make such a device, where compatibility with previous/current technology doesn't matter, usability doesn't matter, only looks, thinnes, nex gen stuff, those are all grea I want them all, but only as an addition to current technologies not as a replacement.
luckily there are many devices that have all what I mentioned earlier, well no fancy 10bit display, not nice build quality, but all the things that are important to me are there.so see you next year samsung hope you come up with something better.
can one attach any external monitor when at the office? how many? one? two?
