Reviews for the Gigabyte T1005

Gigabyte T1005 Convertible Netbook Review
Source: Netbooknews.com English

If you need a mobile computer that turns into a tablet while you’re on the go then this is a pretty good choice. Its aimed at the business user with its touch screen, svelte case, smart manager software, textured bezel and Windows Home Premium. Its keyboard is good and responsive and the hinge has been through a 15,000 turn test. The only thing that has me hesitant on this netbook is the price, at $600 its starting to go head towards Ion netbooks and subnotebook range. There are also a few minor tweaks like a custom virtual keyboard in the smart manager and an SD card slot with a spring I would like to see added. Overall with out the price I’m a fan, so if you’ve got a couple of extra bucks to spare I wouldn’t think twice about buying this unit.

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).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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).


N550: Dual core Atom with a TDP of only 8.5 Watt. Because of the slow clock speed of 1.5 GHz it may be sometimes even slower than a N465 Atom CPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

Gigabyte laptop reviews are rare and the global laptop market share low.


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
