The popular motherboard and RAM manufacturer Gigabyte has unveiled a new tablet and two new notebooks at this year’s Computex 2011.

The tablet, called S1080, should now be available in Taiwan. The 10.1-inch tablet will include a 1024x600 resolution display 2GB RAM, GMA 3150 graphics, 320GB HDD, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 3.0, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and even a USB 3.0 port. An additional separate dock will expand its connectivity options to include a VGA-out port, three more USB 2.0 ports, an audio line-in port, and even an optical drive. Sources are in conflict about its CPU, however, as the tablet will supposedly sport either a dual-core Atom N550 or Atom N570 processor. Overall, the S1080 will weigh around 1.9 lbs (0.86kg).

The new notebook is the 14.1-inch M2432 Booktop and will reportedly ship with an Intel Core i5 processor and integrated Intel HD 3000 GPU. Additional features include a chiclet keyboard, USB 3.0 port and THX audio. Perhaps more noteworthy is that the notebook can be bundled with a separate docking station as well, which will reportedly include a more powerful Nvidia GT 440 GPU with 1GB DDR5 VRAM, six additional USB 2.0 ports, HDMI-out, VGA-out, and DVI-out ports. The GT 440 will likely be the mobile version of the GPU.

Lastly, Gigabyte has unveiled the 15.6-inch P2532, a notebook with gamer specs that was first teased in March. The P2532 will pack in the powerful Intel Core i7-2630QM, Nvidia GT 550M GPU with 2GB VRAM,  up to 8GB RAM, two USB 3.0 ports, four 1.5 watt speakers, HDMI-out, and a DVD burner. Two slight variants will be made available, the P2532N with Nvidia Optimus, and the P2532V with Nvidia 3D Vision.

The S1080 tablet should arrive in the U.S. this June for about $700, but the separate dock will not be made available until a later date. The P2532 should also be coming this June for around $1500. Unfortunately, no launch dates or prices were revealed for the M2432.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
