  • Summary: Quite popular worldwide, the 14" format has a hard time in Germany, a fact confirmed in an interview only recently by Alienware. The German market is quite modest in this size segment. Especially consumers need usually to search for it, while the business segment offers a bit more variety, but then the devices are usually designed less visually appealing and offer many features that are not needed by home users.
  • Pros: good performance, long battery life, light-weight
  • Cons: workmanship and material quality could be higher, dim display

Gigabyte U2442T-CF1

PC Magazine
5 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The Gigabyte U2442T-CF1 has most of the features that a high-end power user wants, including multimedia and 3D benchmark performance, a 10-point touch screen, and comfortable keyboard and chassis. It's up to you to decide if the few tradeoffs are worth it, or relegate the system to also-ran status.
  • Pros: SSD+HDD performance. Discrete 3D graphics. Smart Manager utility. No Bloatware. 2 year warranty.
  • Cons: Only 1,366 by 768 screen. No 5GHz Wi-Fi.

  • Conclusion: On the other hand, the lack of a capacitive touch screen in a Windows 8 ultrabook is a bit jarring these days. The dull looks and plastic chassis may cause potential buyers to overlook the system as well. In a world where styling is almost as important as performance, the Gigabyte falls short.
  • Pros: Discrete GPU boosts gaming performance, User-upgradeable memory, Plenty of USB ports
  • Cons: Merely OK productivity performance and battery life, Mediocre pointing and typing, Lack of distinctive style

Gigabyte U2442

7 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Gigabyte's desire to craft a high-specification Ultrabook is manifested in the £910 U2442. Well-built and easy on the eye on first glance, the Taiwanese firm marries the tastiest 17W Intel Core i7 chip to a genuine gaming-grade mobile GPU from NVIDIA, whose pretty pixels are served up on an above-average HD+ screen. Keeping the goodies rolling by using a fast SSD, the specification sheet is undeniably impressive.

Test: Gigabyte U2442T (0)

6 December 2013
  • Summary: Med U2442T har Gigabyte en 14-tums bärbar med ett rätt klassiskt utseende, men materialkvaliten kunde vart bättre. Trots det var det framförallt den svaga skärmen som drog ned intrycket. 14-tums chassi använder den populära färgkombination av silver och svart. Utseendet är ganska tilltalande men materialkvaliten var som sagt sämre.  Den har visserligen aluminiumhölje, men en toppdelen är bara utav plast.
  • Pros: Bra prestanda, Lång battertitid (minskar dock vid högre belastning - men det får man vänta sig med en dedikterad grafikkrets), Låg vikt
  • Cons: Utförande och materialkvalitet kunde varit bättre

Тест и обзор: Gigabyte U2442T - 14-дюймовый...

25 June 2013
  • Summary: Gigabyte в виде U2442T представила приличный 14-дюймовый ноутбук, который, вместе с тем, не выделяется какими-либо яркими особенностями. А мобильное использование осложняется дисплеем не самого лучшего качества.
  • Pros: Хорошая производительность, Хорошее время автономной работы, Лёгкий
  • Cons: Качество изготовления и материалов могло быть выше, Тусклый дисплей

Test: Gigabyte U2442T - Touch-14-Zöller mit GT 730M

24 June 2013
  • Summary: Gigabyte bietet mit dem U2442T ein solides 14-Zoll-Notebook, das ein schnörkelloses Auftreten an den Tag legt, dem es aber nicht gelingt, Akzente zu setzen. Noch dazu wird die mobile Nutzung von einem schwachen Display getrübt.
  • Pros: gute Leistung, lange Akkulaufzeit, geringes Gewicht
  • Cons: Verarbeitung und Materialgüte könnten hochwertiger sein, schwaches Display
