Reviews for the Gigabyte P2532N

83% Review Gigabyte P2532N Notebook | Notebookcheck
Courage to be unique. Gigabyte tries to build a 15.6 inch multimedia notebook that can serve with Nvidia's Optimus technology besides a high definition screen and a quad core processor. Read here if the P2532N is worth its money.
70% Gigabyte P2532N Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Multimedia mavens will be drawn to the $1,399 Gigabyte P2532N. There's much to love, from the notebook's five high-quality dual-channel speakers (including a subwoofer) and blazing-fast Intel Core i7-2630QM processor to a robust NVIDIA GeForce GT550M graphics card and an exquisite 1920 x 1080 HD display. The lack of Blu-ray functionality and a less-than-stellar webcam dampen our enthusiasm a bit, especially since you can get a Dell XPS 15 with Blu-ray and an HD webcam for $1,199. But if you're looking for a 15-inch entertainment laptop, the P2532N definitely deserves your attention.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M:

Performance-level graphics card for laptops based on the old 400M series but with support for DDR3 at 900MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.662 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Gigabyte: GIGABYTE Technology is a Taiwan-based manufacturer of computer hardware products best known for its motherboards. Established in 1986, its major customers include custom boutique PC manufacturers such as Alienware. Secondary lines in the company's product portfolio include complete PCs, laptops, optical drives, LCD monitors, keyboards, mice, cooling components, mobile phones and high end mobile phone products (PDA phone, TV phone etc.), networking equipment, power supplies, and a line of barebone mid and full sized ATX computer cases. Gigabyte laptop reviews are rare and the global laptop market share low.


80.25%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
