Multi-faceted technology vendor Gigabyte has launched a UK laptop web store, offering a range of Santa Rosa and Napa-based machines with a focus on customisation.
Supported by global internet retailer eXpansys, who will be running the back end logistics of the operation, this will spearhead Gigabyte’s intentions in the UK laptop sector this year.
“Gigabyte will roll out Menlow-based mobile Internet device (MID) and ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) products in April, having its presence in notebooks and portable devices strengthened,” said Richard Ma, vice president of Gigabyte.
“With the standard notebook market over competitive, Gigabyte will also focus on small- and medium-size panel devices to suit client demand. Basic notebooks will focus on adopting seven to nine inch panels, while pushing price and unique functions as the main selling points. UMPCs will focus on seven inch panel-based sliding case devices.
"Gigabyte will also cooperate with telecommunication vendors to push out MID products with five inch panels and 3G communication functions.”
