The Samsung Galaxy Book4 Edge is the first-ever Copilot Plus AI-powered laptop from Samsung. It was released just weeks ago on 18 June 2024, and I think it's without a doubt one of the best AI laptops on the market right now (I'm trying really hard not to be biased as a diehard Samsung fan).  

For creatives, this Galaxy Book offers the perfect blend of portability, style, performance, and sheer computing power thanks to its Neural Processing Unit (NPU) and Snapdragon Elite X processor. Add Copilot AI into the mix – and you get a laptop that can prioritise and manage your workload, help you stay focussed on the tasks at hand, and get your creative projects completed much faster.
