Gigabyte X11: A Featherweight Carbon Fibre Ultrabook

Summary: Gigabyte, best known for motherboards and graphics cards, has a stable of notebooks to which it has just added an extremely slim and lightweight ultrabook.

Taiwanese PC components producer Gb noticeable the UK release of what it calling "the least heavy graphite ultrabook on earth" with a meeting these days at the Churchill War Areas, a Globe War II-era govt sand below Westminster.

At just 975g, Gigabyte's 11.6-inch X11 is certainly less heavy than perhaps the top Ivy Link ultrabook up to now, the Asus Zenbook Primary UX21A, which is 1.1kg. Apple's newest 11.6in. MacBook Air, another apparent evaluation, is 1.08kg.

Clearly the X11's light-but-strong graphite framework underlies Gigabyte's capability to advantage out the 11.6in. competitors on bodyweight — just as Lenovo's X1 As well as does in the 14in. ultrabook industry. Like the Mac laptop Air, the X11 tapers to sharp 3mm at the top side, with a highest possible width of 16.5mm (just within the Air's 17mm). The X11 certainly seems featherlight in the part, while the 'woven' complete to the lid looks elegant — although the bright area does choose up finger prints.

Built around Intel's third-generation (Ivy Bridge) Primary i5 (3317U) or Primary i7 (3517U) processor chips, both with incorporated HD Design 4000 GPUs, the X11 comes with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 128GB SATA III (6Gbps) solid-state generate (a 256GB choice will also be available in due course, according to Gigabyte). Further storage space can be included via a smartphone-style microSD greeting credit card port. This port is on the right-hand part, together with a microphone/headphone combination port and a USB 2.0 port. The left-hand part has a Mini-DisplayPort, a USB 3.0 port and the energy feedback port.
Conenctivity is all wifi — 2.4GHz (802.11b/g/n) Wi-Fi and Wireless bluetooth 4.0 — because, as on most ultrabooks, there's no incorporated RJ-45 Ethernet port.

The 11.6in. LED backlit show has a excellent of 1,366 by 768 p. It's quite bright, which is not to some preferences, but the picture excellent seemed excellent enough on our brief associate with the laptop computer. The display has a solid-feeling metal depend that journeys returning to an position of about 135 levels. There's a 1.3-megapixel photographic camera in the regular mid-top-bezel place.

We didn't have enough entering time with the isolation-style key pad to create a company reasoning, and the same goes for the huge 'glass fibre' multi touch touch pad.

The Gb X11 has a recommended cost of £1,000 (inc. VAT) and will be available from Sept.

Also on perspective from Gb these days was the 14in. U2442, a 1.57kg Primary i5/i7 ultraportable with double integrated/discrete GPUs, the latter complimentary of Nvidia's 2GB GeForce GT 640M. We'll have more on this promising-looking program — and, of course on the X11 — when we get a evaluation example.
