[CeBIT 2012] Any true blue gamer will be able to tell you that there is nothing that they would like better than a souped up desktop gaming rig, as all the comforts of home are within walking distance and reach when one takes a break from gaming. However, there are moments in life where you need to travel elsewhere to earn a living, and cannot bring your precious desktop with you. How else are you supposed to maintain your gaming momentum? You can either “downgrade” to a portable handheld gaming console, or tote around a gaming notebook – and Gigabyte’s P2542G caters to the latter category. More images and details of the Gigabyte P2542G gaming notebook are available in the extended post.
This 15.6″ P2542G has been touted to be “an exceptional gaming and multimedia notebook”, sporting a stunning design which Gigabyte hopes will evoke the jaw-dropping, drooling feeling that one experiences when seeing a premium sports car. I personally do not think that the Gigabyte P2542G deserves to be compared to such a premium segment, but that really depends on your expectations. A quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M GPU with 2GB VRAM offers all the portable performance that you need, in addition to a Blu-ray drive and a Full HD 1920×1080 LED backlight display complements your portable entertainment experience perfectly. Other specifications include a quartet of dual-channel stereo speakers, a couple of woofer speakers, THX TruStudio Pro technology, a couple of USB 3.0 ports to keep up with the times, and HDMI connectivity. Any takers?
