Notebookcheck's Best of June 2011

 

Frame-Master. The Alienware M18x rocks with Crossfire HD 6970M. The ThinkPad X220 and the Fujitsu Lifebook NH751 inspire with good displays. The Motorola Xoom delights us with a battery life of 15 hours. The Aspire One 722 cannot achieve this, but, can...

Review Gigabyte P2532N Notebook

 

Courage to be unique. Gigabyte tries to build a 15.6 inch multimedia notebook that can serve with Nvidia's Optimus technology besides a high definition screen and a quad core processor. Read here if the P2532N is worth its money.

Automatic graphics switching, High-end material impression, Excellent display, Elegant case, Good performance, 2 USB 3.0 ports, Fast HDD, The elegant case and especially the wrist-rest made of aluminum

Unpleasant touchpad surface, Interfaces are located extremely inwards, CPU throttling during full load, Minor stability flaws, Reflective display, Above all, a smooth touchpad and a matt display surface

Gigabyte P2532 Review

 

Unfortunately, the quadraphonic speaker set up doesn't do much in terms of the THX ‘surround sound' effect, the overall sound quality is better than most laptops but it's certainly not as great sounding or as loud as the Harman Kardon speakers Toshiba...
