New unboxing video emerges for the transforming notebook, but release dates remain elusive

Ever wanted a device that could function as a laptop, tablet and desktop PC all at once? Taiwan-based manufacturer Gigabyte is looking to satisfy those users with its upcoming 3-in-1 portable computer.

Called the Booktop T1132N, this previously announced 11.6-inch notebook includes a 1366x768 resolution touchscreen display, ULV Intel 1.6GHz Core i5-2467M CPU with integrated Intel HD 3000 Graphics, subwoofer, up to 8GB RAM and a 750GB HDD. Connectivity features include an eSATA/USB 2.0 port, USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA-out, gigabit LAN, Bluetooth 3.0, multi-card reader, docking port support and built-in WWAN functionality. For users unsatisfied with integrated graphics, the model can also be configured to run on a GeForce GT 520M with Optimus. Considering that this is an 11.6-inch notebook, the options are quite impressive.

Of course, the main selling point of the T1132N is its ability to transform between a notebook, tablet and a desktop on-the-fly. The swiveling screen allows for such usage, although a separate docking station must be purchased in order for the notebook to operate as a desktop. Besides securing the notebook upright, the dock has its own physical connections with a DVD burner to boot.

In terms of size and weight, the unit is about 1.76kg (3.88 pounds) with its 6-cell battery and ranges from 27.86mm (1.09 inches) upfront to 40mm (1.57 inches) thick from the back. This is quite hefty for a notebook this size, especially if compared to the slew of Ultrabooks coming out this year.

Price and availability of the unit, unfortunately are still a mystery. In fact, it has been more than a couple of months since its announcement, so here\'s hoping that the official unboxing video below is a sign of a launch date to come.
