The Taipei-headquartered manufacturer Gigabyte will soon start selling its latest Ultrabook-slash-tablet device, dubbed U2142. Based on a Windows 8 operating system, the high-performance, thin and light laptop will supposedly hit the store shelves after the official release date of Microsoft’s upcoming OS. According to a report from CNET Asia, the portable system will be priced at $999 and up.

The U2142 will be powered by an integrated graphics card and can be equipped with either a third-generation Intel Core i3 chip or an ultra-low voltage Intel Core i5 processor. In addition, it features an 11.6-inch LED-backlit multitouch-enabled display of 1366-by-768 pixels native resolution that rotates and turns the Ultrabook into a tablet.  

Gigabyte’s new portable PC weighs 1.3kg and offers up to 16GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and up to 1TB of mechanical storage. Other features apparently include an HDMI interface, USB 3.0 and an optional 3.5G connectivity complemented by Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.0 radios.
