A reliable machine is a must when you're looking for laptops for coders, and there are few more reliable brands than Samsung in the tech world. That makes the Galaxy Book2 Pro is a great choice for any devs out there. Not only does it look great, it's packed with tech that makes it a dream to use and has plenty of storage space.

Save more than 50% on this excellent laptop from Samsung, with a 2-in-1 AMOLED touch screen, 1TB of storage, and 16GB of RAM.

We will concede that the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro looks an awful lot like a MacBook, but there's plenty to separate it from Apple's alternative.

For one, it's running Windows 11, and comes packing an Intel 12th Gen Core i7 chip — that's not quite the latest, but isn't far off. Add that to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage and there's a lot to like, especially given some machines this price still come with 512GB of storage.

Flip that display back over, though, and the Galaxy Book2 Pro becomes a touch-screen, tablet-like device complete with a stylus for design work or signing documents. Let's see a MacBook do that!

With 849 reviews and a 4.6-star rating out of 5, Best Buy's customers are certainly impressed with the Galaxy Book2 Pro. Are you going to be one of them?
