Gigabyte M912M: Netbook mit Touchscreen


'Ein Netbook mit Touchscreen \x96 das klingt nach gem\xfctlichem Surfen auf der Couch, nach einem endlich bezahlbaren Mini-PC mit ber\xfchrungsempfindlichem Display, nach einem gr\xf6\xdferen iPhone \x96 perfekt f\xfcr unterwegs. Der CNET-Test...

Expresscard-Slot, Touchscreen

'm\xe4\xdfige Akkulaufzeit, Displaygelenk arretiert nicht sauber, winzige Tastatur, nicht angepasste Software, lauter L\xfcfter'

Gigabyte M912V Size & Design


This mini-notebook's swiveling touchscreen turns heads, but a few weaknesses diminish its appeal.

Responsive touchscreen, Stylish glossy lid, ExpressCard slot, Good productivity punch

Poor battery life, Cramped keyboard, No dedicated screen-orientation button, No preloaded touch software

The integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam worked when we initiated a video chat over Skype, but our face looked washed out, and our caller complained of motion blur as we moved our hands. The microphone, located above the keyboard, provided decent audio to...

GIGABYTE M912 Convertible Tablet PC Netbook


In my recent discussion about whether netbooks are already obsolete, I said that the segment needed a real game-changer, because it has become increasingly difficult to find the marketable advantage. ...

It's a convertible tablet in netbook form ; Best performance figures of reviewed netbooks to date ; Stylish background for top panel ; Power switch easily accessible while in tablet form ; High-resolution WXGA display can handle 720p video

Considerably more expensive than most non-tablet netbooks ; Build quality and choice of materials are suspect ; Somewhat heavy and bulky for a netbook ; Kind of pricey at around US$800 MSRP

No, this isn't exactly revolutionary, but it keeps everything nice and tidy. It also makes it easy to pack everything back into the box if you need to do so.

Gigabyte's M912 nettablet


Only a year ago, the netbook was a mere niche curiosity-a promising concept, but one whose utility was far too limited to have mainstream appeal. Fast forward to the present, and netbooks have practically become a commodity product. Fueled by an Atom...

We've been covering the netbook market since the beginning, and over the past year, we've largely seen minor variations on the same basic theme. The M912, however, is a more radical departure from traditional netbook form factors that can easily be...

Gigabyte M912M review


Tablet PCs were practically foisted onto an unwilling public. Despite attempts to make them usable, the Windows Tablet concept remains unloved. Contrast this with netbooks, where the notebook-buying audience seemed to jump on the idea as soon as the...

There may be some environments when a touchscreen walkabout netbook can be useful, in which case the M912 could still earn its keep. But is there a need for netbook performance at a tablet price? For normal usage, given its high price, uninspiring and...

Gigabyte M912X review


Running Windows XP Home, the Gigabyte M912X is perhaps more correctly described as a netbook - but even the Gigabyte packaging also refers to it as an MID.

Neither a great netbook, or a true MID, the Gigabyte M912X ought to be a nippy machine but seems rather clunky and expensive by comparison with the latest netbooks.

Gigabyte M912M laptop


Gigabyte's M912M adds tablet PC capability to a low-power netbook - at a price.
