Gigabyte U2442F Ultrabook Review

13 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Without question the Gigabyte U2442F is cutting edge stuff when it comes to ultrabook performance. Armed with a 3rd-Gen Core i7 processor, plenty of memory, and a quality SSD, the U2442F is as capable as a high-end desktop. Where the U2442F falters is in its GPU performance. Having come to expect so much more from the Nvidia GeForce GT 650M, only to be let down by its use of DDR3 memory, we were disappointed to say the least.

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

  • 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

Gigabyte U2442F

  • Conclusion: Overall, the Gigabyte U2442F is certainly worth considering. Its form factor makes for a far more appealing system than your average gaming laptop. The core components are spot on, and while the SSD is a little on the small side for a gaming machine, it certainly keeps proceedings running smoothly - you'll be the first into your games while your opponents are still loading.
