Reviews for the Gigabyte U24T
A step forward? Gigabyte belongs more to the unknown mobile end device suppliers in some countries. Too bad actually, considering that the Taiwanese manufacturer has a few very exciting laptops in its product line. For example, the U24T is seen as a compact multimedia all-rounder.

The U24T is Gigabyte's vision of the 14" ultrabook. The Gigabyte U24T is a good-looking ultrabook with quality components that perform well, but all of this is compromised by a simply horrific display. There's no way we can give it more than three stars with a screen this bad.

There's a lot to like about the Gigabyte U24T-CF1. It uses the latest Intel Core i7 processor to deliver strong productivity performance, and its 10-point touch screen display allows you to take full advantage of the Windows 8 touch experience. When your work day is done, you can enjoy relatively smooth gaming action thanks to its Nvidia GT750M graphics solution. Our only gripes with this ultrabook are screen related; its 1,366 by 768 resolution is too low for a laptop in this price range, and off-angle viewing is subpar. If display quality is a deal breaker, check out the Samsung Book 9 Plus or the MacBook Pro 13 (2013), both of which have earned our Editors' Choice for high-end ultraportable laptops.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
