When it comes to ultraportables, GIGABYTE like to make sure they're offering something different to capture one's attention. Not unlike their Booktop M1022, the new 1305 also comes with a desktop docking station which gives the notebook a GeForce GT 220 GPU to play with and 1GB of DDR3 memory.

The netbook itself sports a 13.3-inch screen running a res of 1,366 x 768 and uses Intel's CULV processor. Up to 4GB of RAM can be added to the machine, a 500GB HDD and an optical drive. The full feature set is quite wholesome with a combo eSATA/USB port, two USB, HDMI, Gigabit ethernet, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and WiFi b/g/n, vGA out, multi-format card reader, 1.3 megapixel webcam and fingerprint reader.

 

As for the included docking station, that gets six USB 2.0 ports, VGA, HDMI and DVI video outputs, gigabit ethernet and audio in/out, along with that NVIDIA graphics card of course. The standard M1305 battery is a 6-cell 3,800mAh pack which Gigabyte claim is good for up to 6.5hrs of runtime; you can also swap out the optical drive for a secondary battery adding another 4hrs.

 

Pricing and availability is yet to be announced, we just know it's 'coming soon'.

 

The folks at NetbookNews managed to get some hands-on with the Booktop M1305 and have put together a video showing it off which you can watch here :-
