Gaming on PCs used to be restricted to desktop computers equipped with a dedicated graphics card connected to a display, much in the same way that a games console works with a TV. Recent advances in technology have enabled manufacturers to equip laptops with increasing levels of graphics power without them being too bulky or heavy.

14" Gigabyte AERO 14W v7-CF1, Black, QHD IPS, i7 7700HQ, 16GB DDR4, 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD, 6GB GTX 1060, Windows 10 Pro is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for business and gaming I spent ages looking for a laptop. The requirements were simple (.. or so I thought): It needed to have be powerful enough to play modern games, yet also be light enough to take with me on my daily commute and not so full of LEDs that it would look out of place in a business meeting. Turns out there weren't that many options that fit the bill! The Aero 14W is almost the perfect machine though, and still the best out there for my needs that I've found. Having had it for about a month now I've found that it's an amazing blend between fun and practical. - For office work I can get a full day out of the battery, and still have enough left for a little light gaming on the train. Plus it's almost entirely silent under normal load! - For gaming it's powerful enough to handle most things I've thrown at it with the detail turned right up (.. though in some cases you may want to lower the resolution to 1080p, which it displays perfectly) There are only a few complaints I'd make; it doesn't have Thunderbolt 3, and it only has a single M2. Slots. That said, if you need that the newer 14K model will provide them - but you trade down to a 1050Ti as a result. For me the higher graphics performance is worth the trade-off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and lightweight laptop I've been using this laptop for over a month now and I have no regrets about my purchase. When playing games it doesn't get too hot or noisy and the performance is brilliant. Getting 60+ fps on all my games with some even running at QHD. When watching movies or browsing the internet the screen is amazing with bright colours and impressive viewing angle. It boots up quickly, about as quick as the XPS 13 I use at work. It is a good size, impressively thin and not too heavy. Comparable in size to my 13" Macbook Pro but obviously with a 14" screen. If I had to give it one criticism, I think it could have smaller bezels around the screen but if that's important to you then go for the Aero 15 (and live with the lower resolution) I initially had some trouble with it crashing but updating my graphics drivers fixed this. Would absolutely recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast gpu laptop that (mostly) works with Linux I bought this for GPU development under Linux. It does the job with a few niggles 1. The Intel GPU doesn't seem to play nice with Ubuntu drivers. It won't boot, so always have to use the Nvidia GPU for display as well as development. This reduces battery life substantially as well as hoggin precious memory 2. The macro keys don't work on Linux 3.The touchpad is quite easy to accidently touch when typing so have to disable it and use a mouse. Had to send the 1st laptop back due to stuck return key. In summary, ok laptop that does the job if you need decent Nvidia GPU. If you don't, nothing beats a mac

Questions & Answers

Hdd upgrade

Can you ad extra hard drive capacity to this machine? Is there another port for an additional SSD or m.2?
Asked by: Chrisaxeman007
The 14W model only has a single M2 port I'm afraid, so the only way to expand the storage is via USB or replacing the original disk with a larger one. The newer 14K model has 2 x M2 and so may be a better choice is that's what you're after (.. but only has a 1050Ti)
