Solid overall performance ; Colorful, eye-catching design; Thin and light; Runs cool The Cons Keyboard a bit cramped; Small, awkward touchpad; Below-average battery life without extended battery; Verdict Gigabyte's inch M laptop offers solid performance in a sleek and colorful design, but the ergonomics and graphics performance fall behind Gigabyte M2432 Notebook THX TruStudioPRO competition.

The M's interior is a bit more traditional, a silver deck surrounding a black matte Gigabyte M2432 Notebook THX TruStudioPRO deck. A large black speaker grille sits above the keyboard and houses the Power and SmartSwitch buttons. Our favorite part of the deck is how it gently slopes toward the notebook's rear, making way for the hinges. A docking connector can be found at the bottom of the Gigabyte in the right rear corner. However, at 1 inch thick, the M is a hair thicker than both units.

However, they provided a decent amount of feedback as we typed. We took more issue with the relatively small 2. While we liked how the dimpled touchpad felt under Gigabyte M2432 Notebook THX TruStudioPRO fingers, multitouch gestures were hit or miss. Two-finger scroll consistently delivered fast, smooth motion as did three-finger press, which launched our designated shortcut. Oddly, instead of including a pinch-to-zoom gesture for scaling images up and down, we had to rely on a two-finger scroll up to zoom in. This was not only awkward, but erratic.
