Review Gigabyte P2542G Notebook


Yellow Yellow… The Taiwanese manufacturer, Gigabyte wants to make

Bright Full-HD screen with a matt surface; Good software packet (includes PowerDVD 10); Great program performance; Metal hand-rest areas; Decent battery life; Optimus graphics switching technology; Good input devices; Lovely workmanship; mSATA slot;...

Ports placed quite far back; High temperatures; No keyboard backlight; Clearly audible at load; Rough touchpad surface; Rickety service flap; Quite expensive

15-inch all-round notebooks with good graphics card include the Asus N56VZ-S4044V, the Deviltech Fire DTX, the MSI GE60-i789W7H and the Schenker XMG A502.
