Reviews for the Gigabyte U2142-CF1

Gigabyte U2142 Ultrabook Convertible Full Review
Source: Ultrabook News English
The Gigabyte U2142 Ultarbook convertible is a well-built device with a great keyboard. The plentiful ports are a major highlight of the U2142 — it’s nice not to have to juggle between three USB devices when you’ve only got two ports (like on all too many Ultrabooks). Two full-size output options (HDMI and VGA) make it easy to use two external displays (along with the built-in display if you’d like) for serious desktop productivity. Performance is spot on in the U2142 and RAM is easily upgradable to extend unit life, thanks to a quick access hatch on the bottom of the device. Battery life is lower than some other options out there, but keep in mind that this is an 11.6-inch unit with a 40Wh battery.

The build quality on the U2142 is impressive — not unusual for Gigabtye. The whole unit feels very solid, and the clever combination of brushed metal and plastic makes the U2142 feel premium even though it starts under $1000.

Comment

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.

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