I have owned this laptop for a year and will finally give a full review on it. I did not buy the laptop from amazon.

The ultrabook is very thin for the graphical power it has. The brushed metal looks great and makes the lid very sturdy. The same can't be said for the underside which is plastic, but I hardly use my laptop with the underside facing up! At uni, I use it as a work device in the library and while browsing the web and looking at documents I get under 5 hours of battery life. If I switch off the wifi, reduce screen brightness and only work on documents the battery life can be extended by just over an hour. I have not tried extensively gaming on battery as I always plug the computer in for gaming to max frame rates. I have noticed when I forgot to plug in the notebook while gaming the performance is limited to balance battery life and performance.

I upgraded my U2442V with an additional 1TB hard disk drive (HDD) and left my original 120GB Solid State Drive (SSD) for the OS and programs like photoshop that works better with quicker access to storage. Opening the back and installing the HDD is very simple. Undo all the back screws and take off the cover. At the bottom of the device there is a gap where the 2.5" HDD/SSD can go. The original SSD does not have to be replaced so I have both a 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD in the device.

I have installed the latest version of windows 8.1. The new updates on the bios and drivers have greatly improved performance and stability of the device, these can be found on the Gigabyte U2242V support page. The fan does not spool up as much as before. Running on battery does reduce the tendency of the fan to switch on. It is not a silent laptop but the fan is quiet and it's acceptable in the library.

Hello,
I bought this laptop in Feb 2013 and the hard drive failed in November 2013. I didn't buy the laptop from Amazon so not an Amazon issue. Gigabyte hardware simply isn't worth buying and worst off all, when I contacted Gigabyte support directly they refused to fix the issue. Now I have a 1000 paperweight. Avoid Gigabyte products. Stick to proper ultrabook manufactures.
Thank you.
