Gigabyte has launched its new notebook range in Australia.
The vendor officially entered the Australian notebook market at the end of 2009. The new line-up includes a tablet, a tablet-convertible notebook and a multimedia notebook.
“We want to put the resources in certain focused regions,” a Gigabyte representative said. “We’re confident we will grow in 2011 because we have more and more products coming out to complete the product line.
“Australia would be our focus market in 2011 and we’re looking forward to the continuous growth with Altech.”
The vendor’s notebooks are available through more than 500 resellers.
The Gigabyte Booktop T1125 is an 11.6-inch touchscreen notebook with a swivel top design that allows for conversion to a tablet device. It can sit vertically on a docking station to save room. The notebook is powered by an Intel core i5 ultra-low voltage processor.
In the tablet range, the vendor introduced the 10.1-inch S1080 made for the business market. Powered by an Intel Atom N570 dual core processor, the device weighs under 1kg with 320GB built-in storage.
Gigabyte has also brought forth it’s the 15.6-inch P2532, the vendor’s first multimedia notebook designed by its research and development team. Since the notebook uses a second-generation Intel Core i7, or Sandy Bridge processor, it will not be available until the end of March.
Earlier this month, Intel reported a problem with chipsets used with Sandy Bridge processors which led to a product recall. The issue has been resolved and Intel expects to resume normal shipping levels of the chipset by April.
