10378_big

I’m back again with another Gigabyte laptop review, but this one’s a little different. This is the smallest Gigabyte gaming laptop I’ve ever reviewed – a 14″ model called the P34G v2.

The feature-filled monitor is designed for professionals – like photographers, graphic designers and CAD/CAM operators – but could also hook gamers looking for something more than the 27-inch 1440p standard. Let’s see how it shapes up.
