Gigabyte U2442F Ultrabook Review

13 May 2013
  • Summary: Gigabyte ships the U2442F configured with Windows 7 or Windows 8, our test unit came loaded with Windows 8 along with a few other applications such as PowerDVD, Microsoft Office and THX TruStudio Pro. Fortunately there was little to no bloatware preinstalled and so we hope this is how all U2442F ultrabooks ship to the public.

  • Summary: So, we've taken a look at the hard data and have seen some very curious and interesting results. Through all of our testing, this machine has shown top-notch performance, considering the size and weight. I'd be tempted to classify it as a basic gaming machine due to its performance.

Gigabyte U2442F Ultrabook

3 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The U2442 is a powerful Ultrabook that hits a certain niche very well – that of the ultraportable gaming laptop. While thicker laptops can boast better GPU performance and less capable machines are thinner or cheaper, this Gigabyte laptop sits in a nice place between the two extremes, fitting good graphics performance into a cleverly designed Ultrabook.
  • Pros: Strong gaming and day-to-day performance, Reasonable display at a workable resolution, Good looks and layout, Comprehensive complement of ports and wireless
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life, particularly while gaming, Overly sensitive adaptive brightness, Keyboard travel could be improved, Windows 8 suffers without a touch screen

Gigabyte U2442F review

9 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Gigabyte’s main focus has always tended to lean more toward motherboards and PC components in the UK, but it also does a good range of Ultrabook laptops. The U2442F is one of the latest, and its top-notch specs and dedicated graphics card might just make it one of the best gaming Ultrabooks we’ve seen.

Gigabyte has designed an Ultrabook that allows you to do a lot more than just browse the Web and compose emails

  • Summary: Gigabyte's interpretation of what an Ultrabook should be is a good one and the company has created a computer that's not only light and highly mobile, but also very fast. There are some aspects of the build quality that could be better, but for the configuration and asking price, it's well worth considering.
  • Pros: Excellent configuration, Matte screen, Backlit keyboard
  • Cons: Screen's build quality could be better, Keyboard isn't great
