Gigabyte M912M laptop

Techworld
7 May 2009
  • Summary: 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 plasticky build and so-so battery life, even with the addition of a touchscreen interface it still fails to impress.

  • Conclusion: I think I would have preferred it to have been equipped with a lightweight flavour of Linux that would allow all sorts of software expansion at no extra cost and which would have probably boosted performance to very pleasing levels. This would also have had the advantage of reducing the cost of the device which, I feel is on for the high side of acceptable.

Gigabyte M912 Netbook - Touch Friendly

Hardware Zone
22 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Given all that we've touched upon so far, it does seem that Gigabyte has a pretty decent product on their hands, give or take a few issues. We've yet to encounter a perfect netbook as yet, as each netbook has its own significant pluses and minuses that makes us shy back from giving it the ultimate accolade. Not that we don't want to really, but given the hugely competitive netbook market segment, we'll probably stumble upon it soon enough.

Gigabyte M912

21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Mały netbook z obrotowym, dotykowym ekranem, którego można używać jak w Tablet PC – czyżby było to spełnienie marzeń Billa Gatesa o popularnej tabliczce? Sześć lat od szumnego debiutu urządzeń, które miały zrewolucjonizować rynek mobilny, lecz w końcu nie wyszły poza wąski margines zastosowań, firma Gigabyte na nowo definiuje pojęcie tabletu.
  • Pros: funkcjonalność tabletu, ekran o dużej rozdzielczości (w testowanej wersji), gniazdo ExpressCard/34
  • Cons: niewygodny w trybie tabletu, dużo droższy i wolniejszy od innych netbooków, krótki czas pracy na baterii, brak przycisku rotacji obrazu

Gigabyte M912M: Netbook mit Touchscreen

CNET
9 December 2008
  • Summary: Ein Netbook mit Touchscreen – das klingt nach gemütlichem Surfen auf der Couch, nach einem endlich bezahlbaren Mini-PC mit berührungsempfindlichem Display, nach einem größeren iPhone – perfekt für unterwegs. Der CNET-Test erklärt, warum das innovative Gigabyte M912 in der Praxis scheitert.
  • Pros: Expresscard-Slot, Touchscreen
  • Cons: mäßige Akkulaufzeit, Displaygelenk arretiert nicht sauber, winzige Tastatur, nicht angepasste Software, lauter Lüfter
