Gigabyte first Aero laptop was launched back in the year 2016. Where the company only came up with a 14 inch model of the gaming laptop. With their Aero 14, Gigabyte really defined what a 14 inch gaming laptop should be like. That included a thin and light weight design at just 1.9kg. Now Gigabyte has introduced their new Aero 15 gaming laptop. Which now comes with a 15.6 inch display.
What’s good about the new Aero 15 laptop is its new display. Which now comes with slim bezels, known as InfinityEdge display. Something similar to what Dell is doing with their XPS lineup. But what really sets the Gigabyte Aero 15 apart are its dimensions. Where the laptop does come with a 15.6 inch display, but in the form factor of a 14 inch gaming laptop. It’s like looking at a gaming version of the Dell XPS 15. We say this because even the webcam on the Aero 15 is placed similar to the Dell XPS 15. Which can be found on the bottom of the display. Not an ideal place, but sacrifices were to be made with such thin bezels.
Aside from that each display on the Gigabyte Aero 15. Is calibrated by Pantone before leaving the factory. Which makes it one of the best gaming laptop displays to look at. Where even at the Full-HD resolution. The Gigabyte Aero 15 looks sharp and filled with punchy colors. That looks great to the naked eye. Being a gaming laptop Gigabyte Aero 15 also packs in some serious hardware. Where the laptop is equipped with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor. Coupled with 16GB RAM and 512GB of PCIE SSD storage. While in the gaming area the laptop also comes equipped with 6GB variant of the GTX 1060. Which should be more than capable for running things at Full-HD resolution.
Finally let’s talk about the keyboard. Where each key has its own individual RGB lighting. That can be controlled through the provided software. While the touchpad on the laptop also has no complaints. Though don’t expect it to be as responsive as the Dell XPS 15.
In the end the new Gigabyte Aero 15 is a great gaming laptop. But the price of the laptop does make it exclude from the budgets of a lot of users. Which in the UK goes for around £1,900.
