GIGABYTE has long been known for producing quality motherboards. As of late, the company has been venturing into more areas of the computing market, including video cards and, most recently, notebooks. It will be interesting to see if GIGABYTE's quality transfers over to its notebook division.
Today, we'll be looking at GIGABYTE's P2542G. One of the first things that strike you about the notebook is the color. In our case, the lid is a bright yellow, which causes the GIGABYTE notebook to stand out from the others we have reviewed. As you can see in the picture above, it's a good, strong yellow color, instead of a washed out and pale yellow.
Around the border of the lid is some fancy chrome trim, which I actually would do away with. Sure, it looks good, but it affects usability, in my opinion. Beyond the aesthetics, the system is a rock-solid gaming platform, though not the fastest one available. However, what you give up in graphics performance, GIGABYTE gives back in general performance.
The GIGABYTE P2542G performs the best in our system tests out of any of the systems we have tested so far. Coming in at a 15.6-inch machine, it's also more portable than other gaming machines, but this size also comes with some drawbacks.
With that in mind, let's take a look at the specifications and configuration options.
