We might have expected this to come from DELL, HP or Lenovo or maybe Acer or ASUS, but Gigabyte reportedly managed to build the lightest mobile computer that adheres to Intel’s UltraBook standard.
The new small wonder is being launched in Taipei as we speak, and it is expected to be powered by Intel
’s new Ivy Bridge
generation of processors.
The newly-launched device seems rather poor on the connectivity side, and it only comes with a single USB 3.0
port next to the power connector and the miniDisplayPort on the left side.
The right side of Gigabyte’s X11 isn’t much better, as it only comes with a single HD audio jack in a combo configuration, a second USB 3.0
connector and likely a microSD card reader.
Many say that much of the design was borrowed from Apple
, but, in fact, that’s not a bad idea after all. If Gigabyte comes with a 30% lower price, they’re definitely going to make an impact.
