Reviews for the Gigabyte Booktop T1125N
Multitool. The convertible combines i5, Optimus graphics & four loudspeakers with tablet functionality and in mini format. What's great: The mite mutates to a multifunction desktop replacement via docking station. In face of this, who needs a tablet or a desktop PC?
The biggest selling point apart from the fantastic touch screen is the docking station. It saves your connectors from wear and tear and creates a desktop environment in an ultraportable device. Since the T1125N is your desktop, tablet and notebook, it saves you from buying multiple devices and having to sync data across your various gadgets. It also steps up when you need to edit a few videos or game on your lunch hour; you'll be satisfied by this convertibles performance.

The T1125N is not a particularly impressive machine when it comes to looks, considering it has a plastic finish that just almost looks classy. But when it comes to the convertible function, the machine works fine, as the hinge is very flexible and resistant. In terms of performance, the computer is quite efficient for most common tasks and some gaming, and when you set it up with the included docking station, you’ve got yourself a full fledged desktop computer.

The T1125N is a very interesting device, as it offers both a desktop and tablet experience. More, it comes with a docking station and a DVD drive, covering basically many of the needs of the modern user. The hardware is not bad either, even if instead of the Core i5 it would have been nice to see something like i7. Performance is largely good, although the battery life is kind of worrying if you want some autonomy, but if you’ll use it mainly at home, it shouldn’t be a problem.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
The Core i5-430UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 1.83 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. AES, VT-d and Trusted Execution are deactivated for the 430UM. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
