Reviews for the Gigabyte X11

50% Review: GIGABYTE X11
Source: PC Authority English
Squeezing so much into a sub-1kg chassis is impressive, but Gigabyte has made too many compromises. The noisy fan and high temperatures are due to a chassis pushed to the limits of its thermal capabilities, and poor build and ergonomics undermine its appeal. It’s light and powerful, but the X11 is too rough around the edges.

Squeezing this much power into a sub-1kg chassis is an impressive feat, but it’s clear that Gigabyte has had to make far too many compromises along the way. The noisy fan and high temperatures are symptomatic of a chassis pushed right to the limits of its thermal capabilities, and the poor ergonomics and build serve to further undermine its appeal. It’s light and powerful, but at £1,000, this Ultrabook is simply far too rough around the edges.

80% Gigabyte X11 review

With ultrabooks dropping left, right and centre, to stand out, a new model has to be the best-est at something. The Gigabyte X11 is not only ridiculously lightweight and slim, it also packs enough power under the hood to tackle demanding tasks. If Gigabyte can sort out a couple of small issues with the keyboard and trackpad before it goes on sale, it's a seriously good product to consider buying.
