Claim a free pair of £129 AKG Y500 Wireless headphones with the Samsung Galaxy Book S from Currys

Image Description

We have a hot deal to tell you about. Buy a Samsung Galaxy Book S Windows laptop before March 23 and you can claim a pair of AKG Y500 Wireless headphones worth £129. These are incredible headphones too, rated five stars out of five by What Hi-Fi.

You can buy the Samsung Galaxy Book S today starting from £949 at Currys. Several other Samsung Galaxy Book series laptops are part of this offer too, including the high-end Galaxy Book Ion and the convertible Galaxy Book Flex.

But today we're going to focus on the Galaxy Book S, because for many it is the perfect sub-£1000 portable lifestyle computer.

Intel's latest technology

The Intel Core i5 processor with Hybrid Technology is the magic piece of technology that makes all the rest possible. This is a tiny but powerful CPU that uses very little battery but still lets you comfortably use pro-grade applications like Adobe Photoshop.

And even if you don't need that much power, it allows for two of the key strengths of the Samsung Galaxy Book S.

This laptop does not have a fan. It doesn’t need one. And that means it runs silent 24/7.

Low power consumption also lets the Samsung Galaxy Book S last for up to 17 hours between charges. It sails through a full day of work, letting you move around the house or office without having to think about where the nearest plug socket is.

A dream portable laptop

The Samsung Galaxy Book S is the kind of laptop that doesn't just want to spend its life sat on a desk too, because it weighs just 950g. Samsung has not had to compromise on build to get the weight that low either. 

The Samsung Galaxy Book S has an aluminium shell, providing that lovely cool-to-the-touch feel of metal and great tensile strength.

There's more too. You get up to 512GB storage, enough for a huge library of applications and media. And there are high-quality speakers tuned by AKG, enhanced by Dolby Atmos processing, which elevate the Samsung Galaxy Book S as a portable movie machine.

We are also fans of the Samsung Galaxy Book S' screen. It measures 13.3 inches across and has a 1080p resolution panel. That's the perfect shape for Netflix, and the perfect size to balance the priorities of portability and having a screen large enough to work on comfortably all day, every day.

It's a touchscreen, which we find particularly handy when having some downtime with a laptop.

Galaxy Book S versus Flex and Ion

A laptop this light, long-lasting and capable makes you wonder, where's the catch? There isn't one in the Samsung Galaxy Book S for most people. However, some of you may want to consider switching up to the Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion.

Both of these use the processors from a different Intel family, one with a little more power on tap to handle tough jobs like video editing. The Galaxy Book Flex also includes a smart S-Pen stylus that slots right into the frame. It supports pressure sensitivity, making the S-Pen a wonderful digital art tool.

The Samsung Galaxy Book S, Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex are all available from Currys, from £949. And once you've made the purchase, don't forget to claim your free pair of AKG Y500 Wireless headphones. 

You'll need to fill in a quick form on Samsung's website within 30 days. These headphones are worth having.

  • Instagram tests 'Take a break' feature - But it's just old tool re-pushed

    User digital well-being seems to be the name of the game as far as popular internet platforms go. YouTube, in a feel-good move, has taken away the dislike counts on the videos posted on it. Of course, Instagram itself had earlier removed dislike counts from public view on its platform.

    Now, in another initiative aimed at mental wellness of the users, Instagram is testing a new feature called “Take a Break” this week. 

    This is said to be an opt-in control, and those who have opted for it will receive break reminders in-app after a duration of their choosing.

    Users can basically set reminders to take some time away from the app after a certain time of activity. 

    "When you receive a break reminder, we’ll suggest you close Instagram and provide expert-backed tips on what you can do during the break," Instagram's head Adam Mosseri said.

    Time-management tools already exist 

    "Supporting peoples' well-being is a priority for us - and giving people ways to manage their time in a way that's intentional and meaningful is one way we're thinking about that," Mosseri added.

    Based on the test results, Instagram is likely to launch this feature sometime in December.

    But, as it happens, the new time-limiting feature being tested is not exactly new.

    Instagram and its parent Meta already allow for daily reminder and limit notifications. At the time of its introduction, Meta had said that it had developed the tools based on collaboration and inspiration from leading mental health experts and organizations, academics, its own extensive research and feedback from its community. "We want the time people spend on Facebook and Instagram to be intentional, positive and inspiring. Our hope is that these tools give people more control over the time they spend on our platforms," it had said then.

    Meta also has a Quiet Mode feature that lets users mute alerts during certain parts of the day.

    Quite obviously, existing tools allow for users on both Meta and Instagram to manage their time in the app. So essentially the new feature being tested doesn't add any new functionality, except perhaps provide insistent prompts to those who have opted in.

    The real challenge for Meta and Instagram may well be in getting people to click in for the time-management option. Otherwise, it may be just a cosmetic change that these platforms regularly come up with in the face of popular criticism that they just suck people's time away.

  • Apple's next Pro Display could blow away the XDR's resolution

    Apple is working on a new professional workstation monitor called the Mac Studio Display, and it might give even the best 8K monitors a run for their money, according to a report.

    Details on the new display were apparently leaked to 9to5Mac from internal sources. These are presumably the same sources that spilled the news that a new Mac Studio workstation, a cross between the Mac Mini and the Mac Pro, is in the works.

    The display would likely be marketed alongside the Mac Studio the way the Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR were back in 2019. It would reportedly have a 7K resolution (6016 x 3384p), a solid notch above the Pro Display XDR's already impressive 6K resolution.

    It's not known whether the Mac Studio Display would have the same dimensions as the Pro Display XDR, and thus a higher 245 pixel-per-inch (PPI) value that would make the visuals even sharper, or if the new display will feature the same 218 PPI as the Pro Display XDR, but with a larger, 36-inch panel.

    As always when dealing with Apple rumors, nothing has been confirmed by the tight-lipped tech giant, so take everything with a grain of salt. And while the Apple March event is right around the corner, it will almost certainly be a consumer-market event. It's unlikely a pro-user device like this rumored display would make an appearance.

    That said, WWDC 2022 will be fast upon us, where an announcement of the new Mac Studio Display is much more appropriate.
