New toy, Gigabyte Ultrabook u2442n..

Gosh I like my latest acquisition – Gigabyte’s U2442N ultrabook! This laptop has very powerful i5-3120M processor, 8 gigs of RAM, 128 SSD (+one vacant 2,5″ spot for another), discrete NVidia 640M GPU, 14″ display with resolution of 1600×900 pixels and all this weights only 1,56 kg. It is like MacBook on steroids while weighting only about 200 grams more. Gigabyte has done pretty good job with keyboard (backlit btw) and connectivity. U2442n has full sized RJ-45 port, 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0, HDMI and SD card reader.

Only thing that bothers me is CPU & GPU fans. It sounds like they are always on.. Gladly I read that Gigabyte is working on BIOS update to fix fan issues, so soon my only complain will be gone, I hope.
