Mobile gaming is slowly becoming reachable for gamers. There was a time where gaming laptops have the limitations of portability, power and battery life. Gigabyte transcended these obstacles and made a relatively portable notebook with excellent display, powerful graphics, sound and overall performance.

The Gigabyte P2542 packs the latest 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3610QM quad-core processor for maximizing your gaming and multimedia experience. It’s equipped with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 660M GDDR5 2GB graphics card that’ll surely be able to play the latest games in medium – high settings. It’s also fitted with a 1080p 15.6” LED Backlit screen and 4.1-channel speakers. Got Blu-ray movies, but too busy playing your PS3? The P2542 comes with a Blu-ray drive, and is also equipped with 750GB HDD.

You’ll get full port treatment on this lappy with 2 USB 3.0 ports, a 4-in-1 card reader, an HDMI slot, VGA port, an eSATA/USB 2.0 port, an RJ45 port, and ports for earphones and a microphone.

It also features dual-exhaust at the back to properly dissipate heat coming from the CPU and GPU. Looks like exhausts from a sports car huh?

Gigabyte provides gamers-on-the-go a portable gaming machine that is able to deliver above mediocre settings at any given time. Sure the battery won’t last your 10-hour session of Diablo 3 so make sure having power sockets is a priority when staking out a place.

You can score this machine for approximately P75,590 and it should already be available before the month ends.
