Want a tablet and a notebook? Well there is a category in between where the notebook turns into a tablet, we fondly refer to it as the netvertible category. Gigabyte has been making these for a few generations now, their latest one being the most interesting. The 11.6 T1125 comes in 3 varieties the lowest version spec wise (T1125M) is aimed at the emerging markets, which ones we are still waiting to find out.
We got some hands on time with the T1125N which comes in Core i3 & i5 sporting NVIDIA GeForce 310M DDRIII 512MB and supports NVIDIA Optimus Technology. Connectivity wise we are looking at 1 USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, esata, audio jacks, vga, 4 in 1 card reader & a port for the docking station which will house the DVD burner.
Getting online you’ve got a few options Bluetooth 2.1 if you want to tether, 802.11 b/g/n Wireless and a 3.module is optional but the antenna is already built in. The docking station is what set Gigabyte notebooks apart, they have been playing around with various configurations as the M1305 & M1405 have a different style of docking station.
The important question that we should be asking right now is how much is this going to cost and when is it going to be available. Unfortunately there is no word but they are trying to get it for sale for Christmas but it sounds like we shouldn’t hold our breath and CES is much more likely.
Below the video you’ll find the spec sheet for the T1125N & T1125M. Here is the video showing off the 2 speakers and 2 subwoofers as well as the docking station in action.
