Gigabyte U2442T-CF1

PC Magazine
30 September 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: good performance, long battery life, light-weight
  • Cons: workmanship and material quality could be higher, dim display

Expert Review

25 April 2013
  • 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...

Gigabyte U2442 Ultrabook review

TechRadar UK
4 September 2012
  • Summary: A promising 14-inch laptop, with big features
  • Pros: Discrete graphics, HD+ Screen, No bloatware, Bonus features, Loads of RAM, This Ultrabook hits an excellent balance between power and affordability. The inclusion of discrete graphics and a load of RAM means performance is exceptional, while clever additions to the OS make day-to-day performance ...
  • Cons: Poor keyboard, Only 128GB storage, Average speakers, Thick bezel, Boxy chassis, Certain aspects of the usability precluded this from being a solid gold classic. The keyboard benefits from a backlight but isn't as robust or comfortable as it could have been. And the screen suffers from an ugly-loo...

Test: Gigabyte U2442T ()

19 July 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.
  • 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...

21 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

17 May 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
