Gigabyte P2742-G CF1 Gaming Laptop

AVForums
6 August 2013
  • Conclusion: For a 17" laptop marketed by Gigabyte as offering 'High-end gaming' the P2742G sadly disappoints on this front. With only a previous generation, mid-range GTX660M graphics you won't be playing the latest games on high or even medium settings. Low settings will be about your limit for popular titles such as Battlefield 3 for example.
  • Pros: Good battery life, Decent 17" Full HD display, Good build quality, Dual Storage with a fast 128GB SSD
  • Cons: GTX660M graphics will not give you 'high-end' gaming, Annoying touchpad, Not the most exciting of designs, Rather too much plastic for the price, Not really that portable

  • Conclusion: The Gigabyte P2742G-CF1 has a lot going for it. It offers Core i7 processing power, a gorgeous 17.3-inch full HD display, a Blu-ray drive, and great battery life. Moreover, it's relatively affordable for a big-screen gaming laptop. However, you'll have to ease up on resolution and quality settings in order to play the latest and greatest DirectX 11 games.
  • Pros: Potent Core i7 processor, Good battery life, Ample port selection
  • Cons: Middling graphics performance, No keyboard backlighting, Bland design

  • Conclusion: Examining the latest crop of £1,000 consumer laptops suggests that a compromise typically has to be made. Among the many choices are Ultrabooks that offer responsive everyday performance in a sleek, ultra-portable form factor. However, if it's gaming potential that's important, you're often required to forego portability, subtlety and style in favour of something that offers more bang for the buck. Gigabyte's P2742G falls into the latter category.

  • Excerpt: Graphics. It's the final frontier for mobile computing. We'll come to the reasons why momentarily. But the bottom line is that it means going after a laptop with 3D grunt is going to cost you. And that makes the new Gigabyte P2742G actually look like something of a bargain for around £1,000.
