Many manufacturers compete with each other in thickness and weight of their devices, and every quarter they please us with their innovations, to the names of which they add a tag “the most.” Of course, it should be understood that they are called “the most” only in their own kind, for example the size of a case or a display, an overall performance, and many other characteristics.


This time it is Gigabyte X11. We will also consider two other devices that deserve your attention.The manufacturer from the distant city of Taiwan has created a device with the exterior design, from its beginning to end, made of carbon fiber. This material, due to its little weight, has also influenced the fact that the brand calls the product the lightest in the world among 11.6-inch devices. Gigabyte X11 weighs 975 grams, which is 105 grams lighter than Apple MacBook Air.


Screen resolution of such a light device is quite usual for this class of devices – 1366 x 768 pixels. Ultrabook Gigabyte X11 is equipped with an innovation from Intel – Ivy Bridge. 4 GB of DDR3 RAM is a good feature, as well as integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics, two USB 3.0 ports, and internal memory of 128 gigabytes. Bluetooth 4.0, 1,3 MP web camera and a battery of 4730 mAh do not limit the communicative function of the ultrabook.


Gigabyte X11 will be in stores in July. Price starts from 999 USD. Taiwanese brand has also announced another new product, but this one is no longer labeled “the most.” This 14-inch laptop U2442 has a beautiful exterior design and the third-generation processor from Intel. In this model, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M / GT 640M video card with support for discrete graphics, is responsible for the graphics.


The screen resolution is 1600 x 900 pixels, which makes HD video viewing a comfortable one. Price is equal to the first model.   Gigabyte has also introduced another 14-inch laptop – U2440. It is equipped with the third-generation Intel processor and the GeForce GT630M video card. Its body is small enough, but it has a built-in optical drive which is a huge advantage when it is selected for purchase. And it is a good choice in terms of value as the price for the device starts at 699 U.S. dollars.
