GIGABYTE's Smart Manager is actually a very useful piece of software that allows you to control pretty much all aspects of the notebook that have been customized by GIGABYTE. You can turn on and off X-Rite calibration, tweak fans, and disable things such as the camera.

LAN Optimizer allows gaming prioritization so that your games are top priority over things such as downloads. When you first boot up your system you will be prompted to create a backup of the OS in case things go south; we highly recommend you use it.

Updating drivers, BIOS, and GIGABYTE software is made easy by GIGABYTE's Update utility. When you first boot up, you will also see a waiver to provide GIGABYTE with some usage statics to help improve their software.

BIOS

The BIOS is pretty basic, and you probably will never need to enter the BIOS unless you want to configure the system for Windows 7 installation. Otherwise, it's really only useful for disabling things such as the webcam.
