Gigabyte P25W review

 

Looks like a Lamborghini, so it's great the Gigabyte gaming PC goes like one?

Strong gaming performance ; Well priced ; Portable ; Good battery life

No IPS ; Visually unimpressive ; Slightly plasticky ; Sound could be better

This is one of the most powerful gaming laptops we've reviewed in a while. It won't blow you away in terms of gaming performance, but it's certainly enough to play the majority of games at higher settings and the price isn't out of this world.
