Most people have the impression that you have to choose between having a laptop that is remarkably thin and one that is remarkably powerful. More and more, those two worlds colliding and one of the newest examples is the upgraded version of the GIGABYTE P34W. They're saying the new P34W is the only 14-incher with GeForce GTX 970M graphics. Game on!
The two most important highlights on this laptop are that it's only 20.9mm (0.8-inches) thin and that it has GTX 970M graphics. Aside from that, you'll find this 1.71kg (3.77 lbs.) machine has been outfitted with a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 512GB mSATA SSD, 2TB HDD, a backlit keyboard, four USB 3.0 ports, a full HD display with wide viewing angles, Dolby Digital Plus Home Theatre, GIGABYTE's exclusive "Fan Tweak" with four modes of fan speed, and the LAN optimizer to eliminate network latency.
It's an ultra-thin, no-compromise gaming laptop. If you prefer a slightly different kind of design and approach, you should also check out the new AORUS X5 gaming notebook we saw at CES 2015. That slim, powerful and hot too, but it "only" has GTX 965M.
Have a look through the full press release below for more information. No word on pricing or availability for the GIGABYTE P34W just yet, but we hope it's soon and reasonable.
