Gigabyte P2532 Price and release date details from Computex 2011
Now that the Computex event is starting to scorch today, revealing some of the latest products from Taiwanese-based manufacturers; it’s obvious that we can expect the latest innovations from companies such as Asus, Gigabyte and many more. We’ve seen a whole lot of big news come pouring out of the 2011 Computex show so far, and it just keeps right on rolling with Gigabyte’s new laptop, the P2532. Normally we see Gigabyte connected to smaller fare like netbooks, but this laptop’s got all the power of the big boys and then some. But wait until you see the price tag.
As of today, the new Gigabyte P2532 Laptop is now revealed powered by an Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU (2GHz – 2.9GHz), packing with GeForce GT550M with 2GB Memory and up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM. Meanwhile, users will have the option to customize it and pick its 500GB or 750GB hard drive (7200 rpms), and you’ll have the choice for a DVD-combo pack for its optical drive.
If you want to pick its Nvidia Optimus version, you can get the Gigabyte P2532N, meant for users who wants a longer battery life which is possible with the graphic-switching capability of the Optimus, all displayed on its 1080p screen. Meanwhile, there’s a Gigabyte P2532V model which supports NVIDIA 3D vision (3d-enabled display) along with a 1366 x 768 resolution.
These models both include USB 3.0 ports, an eSATA / USB 2.0 combination port, SD card slot, and an HDMI for wireless streaming media of external devices; plus Bluetooth 3.0 / WiFi b/g/n support.
Although we haven’t got a specific release date for the Gigabyte P2532 laptop, we do know that it will be shipping sometime in June. As for the price, you can expect to fork out around $1,500.
I’m definitely looking at this one as a pretty nicely powered laptop, and in many cases you could probably make the case for this one as a desktop replacement. But what do you guys think? Is $1500 just plain old too much cash to shell out for any laptop no matter how good it is, or is this looking like the kind of hardware you’d love to get hands on with? The comments section is waiting below, so tell us what you think about Gigabyte’s upcoming P2532 lineup!
