Reviews for the Gigabyte U2142-CF1
Source: Ultrabook News
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.

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.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
