Gigabyte is often on the cutting edge of portable computer technology. It was one of the first companies to introduce 9 and 10 inch mini-laptops with Intel Atom processors and touchscreens that you could swivel and use in tablet mode — albeit at rather high, un-netbook-like prices. Now the company has introduced a new 11.6 inch laptop… with specs straight out of 2009.

For the most part, the Gigabyte Q1105M looks like a perfectly respectable thin and light notebook. It’s just a bit disappointing to see a new machine with an Intel Pentium ULV processor in the day and age of Core i-series chips. The 3 cell, 2200mAh battery is also nothing to write home about.

Rounding out the specs are an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, 2GB of DDR3 memory, integrated Intel GMA 4500 graphics, WIndows 7 Home Premium, a 250GB or 320GB hard drive, HDMI output, 3 USB ports, mic and headphone jacks and a flash card reader.

The laptop has a 0.3MP camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 3.5G antenna for an optional 3.5G mobile broadband module.

The Gigabyte Q1105M measures 11.5″ x 7.8″ x 1.3″ and weighs 3.3 pounds. I haven’t seen any information about pricing or availability yet.
