    You won't catch me spending a fortune on an ARM laptop until full x86 emulation works properly. Otherwise you end up still having to use another laptop for certain things, at which point you might as well just use the other laptop for everything.

    That they're touting 17 hours battery from an x86 device is insane and it looks like if Intel can get decent performance out of a big little configuration, that will be a brilliant middle ground. Lacking LTE doesn't bother me as I'll usually have my phone and be tethering in this setting.

    Exciting, been waiting for 11th gen. I'm in for two of these. Nice to see Samsung be first to market with 11th gen Intel. at least it looks that way.

    Intel is quick on its feet right?
    Will be really interesting to see how AMD will combat this, they seem to already have some experience with SOCs and their 4000 series laptop parts kick ass.

    Emulation by nature will always have issues. Besides performance, it'll have issues because its trying to be something its not. For some it might be fine I guess.

    There's also a tradeoff that can be made. Better compatibility can be had for lower performance.

    Yeah, I have wondered how AMD will be in ultra-lightweight PC's

    This is more of a Tablet part. You can't really do 10-inch Tablets with current Intel parts. You can, but far from ideal. The -Y parts are more for fanless than anything.

    17/25 hours for ARM/Intel version seems optimistic. Both are tested without WiFi/mobile hotspot connection. It'll drop.

    Re: Samsung outs Galaxy Book S with Intel Lakefield CPU

    Is it just me who feels weirdly uncomfortable about a chip having an odd number of cores and threads rather than the usual even numbers of each?

    To be fair, I felt the same about HDDs (like 3 & 5TB models) too, but it just seems wrong somehow and I'm not really sure why.

    You are not wrong!, something untrustworthy about an odd core count!
