The X11 is made by unique diamond weaving technique with careful application of transparent or black paint coating, forming the Woven Diamond and Black Diamond classics X11. The Woven Diamond exposes the beauty of the original glaze carbon black and diamond weaving patterns. The Black Diamond applies the lacquer on the cover to show the meticulous texture. It is designed both externally and functionally by taking cues from the aggressive and sleek looks of a sports car presenting a special 3D arc design. The hidden aluminium hinge looks just like the sleek silver wheels of a profound super sports car, adding a low-key speedy look for the X11. Taking inspiration from the exhausts of super cars, the Gigabyte R&D team have developed the dual air vent design that efficiently exports the heat of the laptop, and also makes cooling even more efficient with its application of aluminium materials. 

The notebook is powered by 3rd generation Intel Core processors, Windows 7 Home Premium, a 128GB SSD, USB3.0 and Bluetooth4.0. X11 also enhances the multimedia ability by adapting a 16:9 HD screen with LED backlight to make the images crisp and vivid. With Intel Rapid Start Technology and Intel Anti-Theft Technology built-in, X11 embodies the computing intelligence and data security ability. The Smart Recovery allows hassle-free system restore. Just click on F9 when the computer is booting up to launch Smart Recovery and quickly restore the notebook system. (Via Tech2)
