Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing PowerHouse Laptop @ 13.9" Takes 32GB Looking for an all round gaming / VMware lab computer and this is the one for me! Have moved from a MacBookPro Retina 15", touchpad is "OK", screen is great and its super quick. Have not heard it roar yet but obviously not making it work for its power. Looked around for ages, was going to go for the bigger brother X15 Pro but this one is just fine and fits in my gereral rucksack just fine.

Questions & Answers

Windows 10 version?

Forgot to ask 1) Can you have Windows 10 Pro 64bit (instead of Home) 2) Can you upgrade the SSD drives or are these hardwired to the chassis? Many thanks.
Asked by: 1c3m4n
You can replace NVMe drives easy peasy and mine came with Windows 10 Home on it, so think you would need to purchase a pro license and upgrade manually.

RAM upgrade

I'm very interested in this laptop for delivery before Xmas. Never really heard of Aorus before so a little skeptical about them. Who are they and what country are they made? Can I have another 16Gb DDR4 RAM module added to this, making 32Gb total or is there only the one DIMM slot available i.e., I need one 32Gb module or simply add another 16Gb chip? How much would a RAM upgrade be? If you get this in on the 18th and can upgrade to 32Gb RAM and supply before Xmas, I would like to know! What are my alternatives?
Asked by: 1c3m4n
You have to buy 2 x 16GB dimms :) I'd go for the Crucial ones :) Crucial 16 GB DDR3 1600 MT/s CL11 SODIMM 204 Pin, 1.35/1.5 V Memory Module Kit
