Gigabyte outs P2542G gaming notebook, priced at Php 75,590

We’re fresh from Gigabyte’s notebook launch today, and it seems that the motherboard manufacturer wants to break into the local PC market bad. Spearheading their efforts is their P2542 gaming notebook. This 15.6-inch full HD notebook is equipped with hard hitting hardware that is obviously targeted at mobile gamers. We’re talking about a Intel Core i7-3610QM processor (up to 3.30GHz) paired with a total of 8GB of DDR3 memory.

The P2542G is also equipped with NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX 66oM discrete graphics (2GB of memory) and a Blu-ray ODD. Oddly enough, the P2542G is equipped with a 256GB SSD SATA III drive. The choice in storage is a bit of a headscratcher, as while the SSD drive gives gamers the performance they demand when it comes to storage access speeds, 256GB is not nearly enough space to store games in. In our opinion, a hybrid 64GB or 128GB setup paired with a 1TB of HDD space would have made more sense.

The P2542G will retail for Php 75,590.

  1. It may have a hard time piercing through the notebook gaming market such as Asus and MSI since the MSI GE60 and GE70 are reachable at 50k price point.

    They made a wrong decision on putting on a 256gb SSD on this one since the price point of high capacity SSDs are almost double of the practical ones. Namely, the 128gb which can be bought at 5k to the most.

    And in line with this competition of the 15 inch market is the Asus G55 which can offer more of the current specs of the P2542G. And with the inclusion of the Alienware M14X R2 entry level config price of 68k as well.
