The Samsung Galaxy Book3 360 generally costs somewhat more and features a 15.6-inch OLED touchscreen, making it suitable for users seeking a larger display with vibrant colors for media consumption. However, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s, which is somewhat less expensive, offers a higher-resolution 13.3-inch IPS touchscreen, lending itself to users who prioritize portability and sharper text and images for productivity. Both have similar storage and memory, ensuring capable performance for general use, but the Galaxy Book3 360's slightly larger battery might give it an edge in battery life. Give Feedback

Trusted Reviews

Adam Speight | July 2023
"The Samsung Galaxy Book 3 360 isn’t a laptop that the Korean manufacturer has shouted from the rooftops about, and it seems to have gotten little attention from anywhere. But, it is absolutely a laptop worth paying attention to. Compared to higher-priced devices, like the Dell XPS 13 (2022) and Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED (2023), it manages to offer a similar day-to-day experience despite the price difference. It’s really hard to justify the extra cash unless a boosted display is a requirement of yours."

Monica Chin | July 2021
"The best thing about the ThinkBook 13S is that it’s a good deal. Business buyers looking for ThinkPad-level performance and software without ThinkPad pricing will probably find the ThinkBook a solid option. While nothing about it is really spectacular, it’s certainly unusual to see the ThinkBook’s screen resolution at a sub-$1,000 price, and its performance will be more than adequate for most office tasks. The generous port selection, 16:10 aspect ratio, physical webcam shutter, and clear audio are certainly icing on the cake."
