The whole frame is made of white aluminum, the feel of the handset is very cool, but feels heavier than other devices. The screen of the machine is surrounded by a black border, like the general design of the tablet today. The sides of the machine are made of synthetic materials from aluminum and silver, the back of the machine has a glossy silver Gigabyte Logo.
Machine is quite sure, surface inspection as well as the edges of the machine very well, no monotonous, or loose in the joints. But the material Gigabyte uses for the S1080 is quite inexpensive, perhaps not the spiritual child that Gigabyte wants to believe in it. Design of the S1080 makes it look quite thick, while the Dell Latitude ST-LST01 16mm, it looks thinner because Dell has bent the edges of Latitude.
Communication applications are pre-installed by Gigabyte called AppPark. The software is considered as an interface package that integrates many simple applications to help users experience, fast operation with the basic tasks of a tablet through the touch screen. Familiar Windows programs have not been optimized to match the performance of the machine. Still are common applications such as Paint, Adobe Reader and Microsoft Office Starter, but unfortunately, these applications do not seem smooth.
The touch screen of the machine is low sensitivity, high latency. Most gestures, manipulated with the touch surface of the machine must hit several times before seeing the response of the machine, feeling uncomfortable. However, Gigabyte has replaced a mouse for this tablet. This mouse consists of a small ball on the right side of the screen and two mouse buttons on the left. This round ball pen acts like a touch pad, making it easy to move the mouse pointer.
Gigabyte equipped the S1080 with a 10.1-inch anti-glare screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio, a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. The screen has a maximum brightness of 160 m² / cd and an average of only 148 cd / m². This is too dark for a portable tablet, even less than a minimum brightness of 200 m² / cd to be able to view the screen comfortably in bright sunlight. This will make the color of the machine is not displayed well, affected by the light outside.
Equipped with an Intel Atom N570 dual-core CPU along with the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150. This configuration makes it possible to run Driectx 9c only, 2 GB of DDR3 memory and a 320GB hard drive on standard 5400 rpm makes you think this can be regarded as a classic netbook.

The power rating of the machine is done with dedicated Cinebench R10 benchmark software. We had hoped that its scores would be comparable to rivals, or even netbooks, at the same price. Sadly, in the evaluation of this CPU, the performance that it brings can not keep up with the Asus Eee PC 1015PX (the same configuration). The Eee PC scored 1,654 points while Gigabyte lagged behind at 1,361 points. Dell Latitude ST-LST01 has a weaker processor and can only score 759 points.
Intel GMA 3150 is a graphics chip designed for basic applications such as Office or Web surfing. This chip is too weak to edit photos / videos or play games. However, a short test showed that the machine can still play Full HD video quite well.
It only uses 11W, which is 16W lower than the other tablets, this may increase the overall performance of the system. To evaluate battery life, we use the Battery Eater tool. This tablet has not been able to achieve 5 hours of operation with minimum brightness setting and power saving mode, off WLAN. The time spent surfing using wifi is said to be much more important. Brightness is set at 150 cd / m² (highest) and we use wifi to surf the web. This tablet stand in 3 hours and 19 minutes. Of course, the screen condition is too dark, and the battery life is not quite as good.
