Gigabyte unveils U2442 ultrabook line
At the ongoing CeBIT computer show in Germany Gigabyte demonstrated a new company ultrabook line dubbed U2442.
The new U2442 ultrabook series is represented by two models: the U2442N and U2442V. The only difference between the two lies in the processor inside – while the U2442N comes with third generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, the new U2442V features an Ivy Bridge processor with lowered power consumption (ULV). Both models arrive with 2 GPUs – one built into the ultrabook processor and another in the ultrabook itself. NVIDIA provides the GPU core for the ultrabook and both models come with a GeForce GT 640M graphics card with 2 GB of video memory.
The ultrabooks also feature a 512 GB SSD and a hard drive with a capacity of 1 TB, a backlit keyboard, 4 USB ports (two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0), HDMI port, MiniDisplay Port and D-Sub as well as a SD card slot. The displays are 14-inch with 1600 x 900 pixel resolution.
The new ultrabooks will be officially launched in May or June 2012 and will cost around 1000 USD.
