Gigabyte Announces Two New Lightweight Gaming Laptops

Gigabyte today announced the launch of two new gaming laptops, one each in the 14- and 15-inch categories. The company is claiming that this pair are the lightest gaming laptops available in their size categories. Lofty claims, but at 4.76 lbs and 3.68 lbs, they're definitely pretty portable. So, what's Gigabyte managed to squeeze into these new, light notebooks?


The 14-inch P34G measures in at 21mm thick and packs Intel's 4th generation Core i7 quad-core CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 760M graphics, up to a 256 GB mSATA SSD and 1 TB in HDD storage, an AHVA FHD 1080p display panel, and a back-lit keyboard.


The 15-inch P35K also boasts Intel's latest 4th generation Core i7 CPU and is the same 21 mm thick. The P35K pairs its Core i7 CPU with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 765M. The laptop uses a 1080p FHD IPS display panel, supports up to 3 TB of storage, and comes with an ODD/HDD slot.

No word on pricing or availability but we'll keep you posted.

    Depending on the price I would seriously consider getting this. I am a casual gamer.

    Everyone is piggy backing off of razers laptop line. Ultrabook gaming laptops, I love it!

    It's great to see that Windows laptop manufacturers are finally making lightweight gaming laptops. For the longest time the only laptop's you could buy with a gaming quality GPU that were light was the 15" Macbook Pro.

    Although I wonder if these have as good a battery life as the Macbook Pro? The real advantage they had over Windows laptops was their weight and battery life to performance ratio. As any Windows laptop would end up weighing more and/or have worse battery than the Macbook Pro for the same GPU performance or end up costing more.
