Gigabyte unveils U2442N and U2442V Ultrabooks
CeBIT is the place to be if you are interested to see what is the latest and greatest in computing technology, at least for those living in Europe. Gigabyte has stepped up a notch by announcing a couple of Ultrabooks that will be making their way to the masses, in the form of the U2442N and U2442V. Both of them will be 14″ devices, where they will not only offer a decent level of performance, but will also be thin enough at a mere 18.5mm to 20.5mm, tipping the scales at a mere 1.49Kg, making them a whole lot easier to tote around no matter where you go.
Do not look down on them just because they are thin – they are still fantastic choices in terms of portable power and performance. The U2442N is no slouch in terms of processing power, boasting a powerful 3rd generation Intel Core i5/i7 standard voltage processor, while the U2442V will run off an excellent 3rd generation Intel Core i5/i7 ULV processor. Both the notebooks will come with a HD+ (1600 x 900 pixels) LED Backlight display that delivers bright and vivid images.
As for graphical performance, the two of them will come equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M GPU with 2GB VRAM, offering an outstanding experience whenever you want to take a short break from work and indulge in a little bit of game time. You can choose from a high capacity 750GB hard drive, or if performance is of your utmost priority, then a SSD would make the better choice. As for its backlight keyboard, it comes in handy if you are one who loves working late into the night, and with minimal lighting.
Other shared specifications of the U2442N and U2442V include USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, Thunderbolt (optional), and 2T2R Double Antenna Wi-Fi connectivity. No idea on pricing on pricing as at press time, but I surely believe that Gigabyte will price them according to what the market dictates at the moment for such devices. Have you hopped on board the Ultrabook bandwagon just yet, and if you haven’t done so, what is stopping you?
