We go hands-on with Gigabyte's new gaming laptop, the P2542G.

We're at Gigabyte's CeBIT booth once again, this time bringing you a hands-on with one of the company's new laptops, the inspirationally-named P2542G. Aimed at gamers, it features a 15.6-inch Full HD display, a quad-core Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, and two enormous air vents around the back. The model we saw had a glossy display, but we're told there will be a matte option at launch. There's also the usual array of ports, including a pair of USB 3.0 ports and HDMI 1.4. Build quality seems reasonable, with everything seemingly well put together, but there was some flex in the keyboard, although not nearly as much as in the company's ultrabooks we saw earlier. The P2542G will only be available with a bright yellow cover and should be priced at around $1,100 when it's released near the end of Q2.
