There has been a lot of talk about the Gigabyte T1125 going on sale as early as the end of this month. So far we only had a vague idea of what the unit would cost but now we have pricing confirmation. The Core i3 MSRP is $1099 and the Core i5 MSRP is $1199. The prices include the docking station which will be sold together with the notebook. As far as availibility goes, it looks like the Reps who are answering emails are jumping the gun. Gigabyte had hoped to get things rolling by the end of the month but realistically my sources here in Taiwan have always said early December. Hopefully they keep push through and we can see this on the shelves for the Holiday season.
In case you haven’t been following it 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.
