The Gigabyte Booktop M1305 is an ultra-portable Windows 7 notebook weighing in at under 4 pounds. It’s relatively unimpressive at first glance: a Core 2 Duo processor, up to 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB HDD. What blows the M1305 out the water is its included docking station, which houses a powerful nVidia GeForce graphics card alongside a batch of inputs and outputs like DVI and HDMI. By hooking up their notebook to the dock, users can transform the relatively meager M1305 into a full-fledged multimedia station with enough power to push out 3D/HD multimedia to compatible connected displays. Additional features include Bluetooth v2.1 with EDR, advanced security features (fingerprint reader and cable lock slot), and wired/wireless Internet connectivity options.
