The GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028 – for the first 3 hours that I’ve used and test driven this notebook, I was having a hard time categorizing this machine. I must say that it falls between…or better yet overlaps with a netbook, a tablet PC, and a notebook. BUT here’s the bottom line – I’m quite impressed with the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028. It’s a very unique device with nice features and only a handful of issues. Just how unique is the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028? Here are some features you should check out…
First, it comes with a convertible screen, touch layer and it is 3G ready. Along with that, it follows the steps outlined by its predecessor – the M912M, the 8.9 inch convertible, which IMHO, fixes all of the problems and issues that buyers experienced with the said device. I’m sure you’re dying to know more about this notebook, so without further adieu, let’s have a look at some of the beefier features and benefits that this laptop has…
– This laptop is beefed up with the Intel Atom processor which has the speed of 1.6 GHz, a netbook platform that has 1 GB of RAM and runs on Windows XP Home Edition. If you’re after satisfying your daily computing demands, listening to music, playing videos, surfing the net, and anything except for heavy gaming, the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028 can do it all very easily.
– It comes with a relatively fast 2.5 inch SATA drive which is split into 2 partitions that has an additional recovery partition. The latter will definitely come handy when your hard drive, for some reason crashes and you need to access your backup files right away.
– Quiet and cool operation – in my opinion, this is one of the more important improvements over the M912M. Along with that, the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028 can last an average of 3.25 hours online and active battery life. This is about 30 minutes more than the M912M.
And we haven’t even touched the tip of the iceberg!
In conclusion, the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028 offers more than what the average netbook offers and it comes with significant improvements over the M912M, which is a groundbreaking machine on its own. It has a convertible touchscreen, WIFI, a speedy 2.5 inch drive, easy upgrade possibilities, and more, the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028 is a machine worth having. As for issues, I had a couple of them. They’re the glossy screen and average battery life. Overall however, the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028 is a nique netbook that provides great value for consumers. Here’s my proposition – why not lay your hands on one of the GIGABYTE TouchNote T1028 out there and see for yourself why I’m giving it my stamp of approval?
