Gigabyte Booktop Tablet Hybrid T1132 Gets Its Formal Wear

Gigabyte may be aiming to score some holiday sales with its newest convertible tablet, or perhaps not, given that Booktop is more a name that fits with educational venues than consumers.

Then again, people from around the world are known to seek out various things, so they may very well consider the new Gigabyte product as a viable Christmas present (assuming, of course, that the company will even get around to selling it by that time).

Or they won't. After all, the price of $1,300 is not precisely what one would look for right off  the bat, not in this economy at least.

Still, there will always be people free of monetary concerns, so the tag won't be of very great consequence.

Also, that isn't really its price. That was kept secret. $1,300 is what the somewhat weaker T1125 sells for, though this isn't a point to rejoice over.

That said, the Booktop T1131, as it is called, features an Intel core i5-2467M central processing unit, with a clock speed of 1.6 GHz.

That chip is paired with an NVIDIA GeForce GT520M GPU (graphics processing unit) which has 1 GB of VRAM.

As such, the Optimus technology is, predictably enough, present and accounted for.

It is this feature that knows how much graphical prowess an application demands and automatically switches between the integrated GPU of the CPU and the discrete card.

Gigabyte doesn't make it completely clear how much memory or storage people can expect from this pricey beast. They are no doubt customizable though.
 On the other hand, the company doesn't make a secret of the USB 3.0 connectivity (one port), nor of the USB 2.0 port, eSATA and HDMI.

Gigabyte set up a sort of contest via Facebook, which will hand out some Booktop T1132 models for free. Check out the rules of it all here.
