    GPU runs at 83c, dual fan doesn't seem to be working like they hope. I have a feel the u2442 series will run hot too.

    Long time lurker, first post here. I've been looking at this laptop for a while and was hoping to get it soon.

    After reading about the temps, i'm wondering if the BIOS allows undervolting the CPU. Anyone have any idea?

    Other specs here too.
    Notebook GIGABYTE P2542G : details, prices, reviews

    Has an i7/3610 and GTX 660M GPU, which is I believe same as the new Apple Retina 15". That GPU Blows away the onboard (4000) video of the more expensive Top end Samsung 900 series ultrabooks.

    Only problem I see is a Shiny (reflective) chrome outline of inner Bezel which looks distracting.

    Review and lotsa Pix:

    We need more reviews on this laptop! On paper, it seems like the perfect balance between style, power, and portability.

    The MBP comes with a 650m not 660m, so this is faster, but still mid range, and it's perhaps unfair to compare it to an ultrabook.

    Looks good, although it would be nice if it comes in something other than yellow. Personal taste I suppose.

    If I'm not mistaken, this is the lightest laptop with a 660m. The next would be the Razer Blade, but that is 17', weighs 6 lbs. +, and doesn't have an optical drive.
