Reviews for the Gigabyte U2442D-CF1

60% Gigabyte U2412 review
Source: Techradar English
Performance issues aside, the Gigabyte U2412 is ultimately a flawed device. Both the screen quality and the weight of the thing seriously compromise it as a tablet proposition. That's only going to become more obvious in the coming months. We're expecting rapid progress in the tablet convertible market, partly driven by Intel's new Haswell processors. If the Gigabyte U2412 feels off the pace today, six months from now it's going to look positively antediluvian.

Gigabyte isn't a household name when it comes to laptops, but the U2442D may turn some heads. Under a generic ultrabook chassis lies the heart of a solid ultralight gaming system. Alas, this 14-inch portable is otherwise bland and its keyboard and touch pad leave a lot to be desired.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.
