5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte U2442 models are great ultrabooks

Pros: I just took 20 min to write a great review of this item but because newegg is incompetent and ironically has poor technology associated with their website my review was deleted when I submitted it and all info lost. I’m not rewriting this again but I will say this:
The Gigabyte laptop is powerful, slim, lite, and has great quality build. In a few reviews that I’ve read people received a defective product, in which case they should return it to newegg or where ever they bought it. I cannot comment on Gigabytes customer service because I haven’t used it yet (and hopefully won’t have to).

Cons: Bottom lid to the RAM compartment is a bit flimsy and a corner sticks out about a millimeter. I believe it was damaged in the shipping process and not a manufacturing flaw. Again Newegg did a bang up job (I’m trying to be sarcastic). The packaging of the laptop consisted of a slightly bigger box, yes that’s it. Newegg didn’t bother to put any padding what so ever. When I received the package it had a huge crease in the middle like someone bent it in half (shipped via UPS). I thought for sure that the laptop was cracked, luckily the manufacturer’s packaging had enough material around it to sustain the blow and I didn’t see any serious damage.

I’m taking away an egg due to this issue because I feel like part of your decision in purchasing an item such as this is trusting the online retailer. This is where Newegg dropped the ball.

Other Thoughts: That being said, Newegg’s price for this laptop is unbeatable and I’m not rich enough to ignore that.

4 out of 5 eggsNice machine, I like it

Pros: I bought this because of key features: touchscreen, 14" monitor, dedicated decent graphic card and light weight (around 4 lb)
addition credit given for the SSD+HDD feature and backlit keyboard. The keyboard feels really good and easy to type, saves me lots of energy :)

I've been using this for over a week now, I played GTA4 (mod version), very smooth and no issues at all. Fan is quiet and not hot, even running GTA4

Cons: Normal use (browsing, email and occation gaming), battery last 3-4 hours, hope it could go longer but I'm satisfy with it given the trade off for light weight. The only thing I don't like is the sound. I set to the loudest and still not giving me enough sound when use it to watch videos with the kids. A lot quieter than my other laptops.

Other Thoughts: I'm stil using windows 8, did not upgrade to windows 8.1 yet as I'm not certain about compatibility.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks great!

Pros: Look sturdy. Started up fast twice.

Cons: While I've had it 2 weeks, I only started to set it up yesterday. Turned it on, started great. Moved a few files over, then got called away. When I came back to it even though it was plugged in it was in battery mode and discharging. Unplugged and re plugged in and it started charging again.
Went back to my main computer to do some work. Checked it a couple of times. It kept turning off, even though I changed power settings to "Never" turn off.

A couple of hours later, it was turned off again and would not turn back on.
I put a volt meter on the charger and it putting out the required DC voltage.
The computer is just dead.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: It's performs excellent as a paper weight.

Cons: VGA died 31 days after purchase. :-(

Other Thoughts: The Gigabyte RMA process is online only, with very little help...i can see someone with little or no technical knowledge becoming very frustrated with this process. Try another product with good/ great support because I'm not feeling the love at gigabyte.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

Pros: Just got this today after newegg's super fast shipping. Touch screen works well. The 8 gigs of ram inside are on one chip which allows me to buy another 8 gig chip to max out the memory, instead of them going the cheap route with 2x4 gig chips, so that is a plus. Like it so far.

Cons: Windows 8 is a real challenge, but not really the laptop's fault per se. Some amount of bloatware. The track pad works fine, but I'd really only want to be using it for superfical tasks, like browsing, not gaming or work. The keyboard is quite compressed but that may be typical of these small form laptop/ultrabooks, especially the arrow keys. I am noticing some drop off with the WiFi here and there, it will download at 3mbs, then drop unexpectedly to zero. I will update my review if that becomes a bigger issue.

Other Thoughts: Battery life says about 4 hours, but depends on your task. I will continue to update my review as I get more experience with this product, but first impressions are overall positive.
