Shelf Warmer. Gigabyte is well-known for its mainboards and graphic cards. The manufacturer has even released a Windows tablet with an Atom processor. Read the following review to find out more about this Gigabyte gadget and our opinion thereof.
If you’re looking for a Windows 7 tablet with great connectivity and you don’t mind it doubling as a hand heater, then the Gigabyte S1080 should be a top pick among Windows 7 tablets.

There’s certainly room for improvement in the S1185’s battery life. However, its strong performance and unusual optical mouse sensor could appeal to professional users who need a mobile PC that they can hold in both hands and use on the move.

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.
In the notebook sector, Gigabyte is a medium player and does not belong to the Top 10 manufacturers globally. There are many reviews on Gigabyte laptops with average ratings, but there are only few reviews on Gigabyte tablets. Gigabyte does not play a role in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
N570: Dual core Atom processor with a slightly higher clock rate than the Atom N550 and therefore still slower than the CULV processors.
Intel Core i5:
3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
71.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
