Review Gigabyte U2442N Notebook


Ultra-mobile without Compromise? Ultrabook-slim yet high performa

High application and gaming performance; Matt display surface; SSD-HDD combo; Bluetooth 4.0; USB 3.0

Gigabyte U2442N


An ultraportable gaming laptop that packs in the specs.

Some of the best specs of any Ultrabook ; High-resolution screen ; Usable, backlit keyboard

Poor battery life ; Average design ; TN screen = poor viewing angles ; Clacky keyboard keys

The right-hand side houses a full-size SDXC card slot, twin USB 3.0 ports, and HDMI 1.4 for video. There’s also a blocked-off port which looks like it was made to carry a miniDisplayPort.
