Rating: 89%Manufacturer: GIGABYTE


The GIGABYTE P34 series comes in a number of different configurations to accommodate a lot of different price point. They all have a 6th generation Intel Skylake i7-6700HQ CPU under the good, but with varying degrees of storage, RAM, and dedicated GPU on board. This particular model is the W variant that comes with a 970M and the optional 2560x1440 resolution IPS screen. In addition to that, 16GB of DDR4-2133MHz memory is installed, and upgradable as well. There's a 128GB Samsung NVMe compliant PCIe M.2 SSD and an additional 1TB of storage via a Hitachi-sourced HDD.

Though the 14" laptop is packed with power, they've also managed to put a massive battery into the chassis. It's fairly small at 20.8mm thick and only weighs a scant 3 pounds. Taking up the majority of that weight is the battery, which is a massive 61.25Wh in total capacity. That's one of the largest batteries offered in a laptop of this size, bar Apple's offerings, and without an external battery solution.

Configurations Available

There are two primary configurations available to the consumer, the SL2, and SL3K2, which denote different resolutions; 1080p and 1440p, respectively. The SL2 version also has only 8GB of RAM. The rest of the specs are similar.

Warranty & Support

GIGABYTE has a 24-month worldwide warranty that applies to the P34W v5, which just happens to be a year longer than quite a few different manufacturers. The only limitation is that the batteries and AC adapter are only covered for the first year, and any other bundled accessories are excluded from the warranty.
