Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Gigabyte have already displayed two new notebooks at Computex powered by Haswell, the U35F and U24F and now they are showing us a new tablet/notebook hybrid device. The tablet is based on 3rd generation (Ivy Bridge) Pentium 2117U or Core i5 processors. The S1185 features an 11.6″ capacitive multi touch screen that is IPS and boasts a resolution of 1920 by 1080. It supports up to 8GB of RAM but has only one SODIMM slot. The GPU is the Intel HD 4000 and the tablet is available with either a 64, 128 or 256GB mSATA SSD. Connectivity is quite extensive with a USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0 port, VGA out, HDMI out, microSD, a sim card slot and the keyboard dock connector.
Gigabyte are continuing their trend of integrating 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 which they have done on virtually all of their new motherboards so far. There is also an integrated 3.5G antenna built into the Gigabyte Padbook S1185. The device uses two cameras a front facing 1.3MP camera and a rear facing 5MP camera. The battery provides 39 watt-hours at 7.9 volts and the device weighs 1KG as a tablet and 1.4KG with the keyboard attachment.
