Gigabyte releases lightest gaming laptop

The P35K Ultrablade weighs just 2.16kg and is also only 21mm thick – although this apparently does not impact on its performance specifications.

Gamers will be able to take advantage of a fourth-gen Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 765MGDDR5 2GB graphics.

Storage-wise, the P35K boasts 3TB of hard drive space, as well as an SD card reader and an ODD/HDD slot.

Other features include a backlit keyboard, a 1080p IPS screen and two USB 3.0 ports.

The keyboard in particular will be of note to those who prefer to play their games in darker surroundings, while Supra-Cool technology also reduces the risk of overheating.

Another useful quirk of the P35K is its LockWin key function, which turns off the Windows key – ensuring that games will not find themselves accidentally jumping back to the desktop thanks to errant button-bashing when right in the middle of something.

Customers can now get their hands on the laptop for £1,199.99, after it was released on Monday (November 11th).
