Keyboard and TouchPad

GIGABYTE P25W Gaming Laptop Review 09 |

The P25W comes with the now-standard island style keyboard. The keyboard is definitely comfortable to use and feels more like a desktop keyboard than a laptop keyboard, something I count as a big plus.

The keys have a great travel distance. The WSAD keys are solid and feature next-to-no flex, whereas the KOL key area has a fair amount of flex present. Some of the keys are also not level with each other, which causes me concern as to the quality or longevity of the keyboard.

Key travel and sound are good. The overall typing experience is quite excellent. I experienced zero errors while typing on the keyboard, which is a good sign and testament to the keyboard's quality.

The P25W comes with a simple white backlit keyboard, a must have on any premium notebook, by my standards. The backlight provides a simple, dim glow to the keys that doesn't kill your night vision when being used at night.

The touchpad is made from two pieces of material. The touchpad is fairly wide, but is a bit short. The left-click and right-click buttons are fashioned from a single piece of material, something I wish manufacturers would get away from.

The touchpad is even with the palm rests, though a slight bump offsets the touch-enabled portion of the touchpad. The texture of the touchpad also differs from the rest of the system, making it easy to detect when you're on the touchpad without looking.


The GIGABYTE P25W features a 15.6-inch Full HD display meaning it pumps out a resolution of 1920x1080. The surface of the screen is of the matte texture and despite running Windows 8, it does not feature a touchscreen.

Looking at the display from off-angles doesn't seem to affect the color of the screen at all, which is impressive considering I believe this system makes use of a TN panel. Extreme angles are required before anything looks too abnormal.
