Reviews for the Gigabyte Touch Note T1028X

60% Gigabyte Touch Note T1028X
Source: Laptop Mag English
This convertible tablet netbook offers decent performance and good endurance, but the touchscreen experience could be more robust. The Gigabyte Touch Note T1028X is a compelling netbook tablet. It’s small and light enough to carry around in the crook of your arm, and it’s powerful enough so that basic touch-enabled apps respond quickly. However, because this system lacks any sort of user interface that would lend itself to touch-based computing, we suspect a large number of buyers will either want to upgrade the T1028 to Windows 7 themselves or wait for Gigabyte to sell a multitouch version of the device.

The Gigabyte TouchNote T1028X is probably one of the best netbooks I’ve ever used in terms of build quality and performance. It’s a bit heavy, but the touchscreen works exactly as it should, making the netbook useful in both clamshell and tablet mode. The integrated 3G is also going to be a major selling point for some users.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

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).


N280:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors. Compared to the N270, the N280 is only minimally higher clocked and offers a higher FSB.

10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
