Gigabbyte Cont.

But it wasn’t all low-level components that Gigabyte had on show, there was also a complete range of notebooks.

The N203 is a small and light notebook that comes in either red or black. It has a 12.1in TFT screen sporting a 1,024 x 768 resolution. Inside is an Intel 855GME chipset with support for Pentium M processors including the new Dothan chips. There are two SODIMM slots with a maximum memory configuration of 2GB.

There’s integrated WiFi supporting both 802.11b and g standards. Also, for a notebook so small there are a lot of ports on-board including three USB 2.0 and two FireWire. Build quality seemed to be very good, and the keyboard had a decent feel to it.

For those looking for more power and a slim chassis, the N512 could be just the ticket. This model has a 15in screen with a resolution of 1,400 x 1,050, it also has a decent graphics chipset to make the most of the screen. The model on show had an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 chipset installed with 64MB of memory.

This is a fully Centrino branded machine so there’s an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG adapter. The N512 is a slim and stylish notebook and should go down well with the business user.

Finally, Gigabyte was showing off its new range of TFT screens. The screens come in 15, 17 and 19in variants and the design looks good. The slim silver bezel makes the screen look bigger than it is and it should suite the majority of today’s PCs, especially SFF boxes. The screens should be available in the UK in the next couple of months, so check back for a full review.
