Gigabyte Ultrablade Gaming Laptops
Gaming laptops don't always have to be monstrosities. Witness Gigabyte's new "Ultrablade" notebooks, which combine fragging prowess with slim form factors. The 15.6-inch P35K weighs a mere 4.2 pounds, while the 14-inch P34G tips the scales at just 3.7 pounds. They still retain plenty of pixel-pushing power, thanks to Haswell quad-core Core i7 processors options (TBD) and Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M (P35k) or 760M (P34G) discrete graphics. Incredibly, the P35K can hold up to four drives to maximize storage: two 512GB mSATA SSD drives plus a pair of 1TB traditional hard drives. The P34G can "only" handle a 256GB mSATA SSD and a 1TB hard drive. Unfortunately, no word from Gigabyte yet on how much these svelte but brawny systems will set you back, or when you can get your hands on one.
