Tries to do too much, fails

from Gizmodo

It tries to do a lot of things and hobbles its way through most basic tasks, but I’m not sure the user the Galaxy Book 2 invites you to imagine really exists. Who is this mythical person who needs a stylus or an AMOLED display on a device stutters and quivers when you’ve got too many browser tabs open?
