15.6" Aorus X5 V6-CF2, 120Hz FHD G-SYNC, i7-6820HK, 16GB DDR4, 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD+1TB HDD, 8GB GTX 1070, Win10 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing laptop, perfect in every way. Almost everything about this laptop is perfect. The IPS screen has absolutely zero backlight-bleed, is perfectly uniform and the G-Sync function works from 30-120 FPS, which is perfect for any scenario - the 120 Hz model in my opinion is the best version, as the 1080p resolution already has an insanely high pixel density for such a small screen, and the 120 Hz monitor allows for very smooth desktop use when you're not playing. I personally don't see a point in sacrificing FPS for resolution, especially when 3K is practically unusable at native resolution on this laptop. 1080p @ 120Hz uses the laptop's potential much more than 3K @ 60Hz. It is quite fast and has a plethora of software suite tools to make the experience better; it automatically updates all drivers and also has a built in overclocking software for both the CPU and GPU, not to mention other useful features. The 1070 inside performs almost exactly the same as an ordinary desktop 1070; in Titanfall 2 I could play at maximum settings (Ultra, 1080p, FXAA) at the full 120 FPS, and in The Division (a fairly poorly optimised game) with even full NVIDIA Gameworks on I could get around 70 FPS in game-world night and around 40-50 FPS in game-world day; remove the NVIDIA Gameworks and replace it with Ultra etc. and you should be looking at a 20-30 FPS bump in each regard when playing at Ultra, 1080p, no AA. The only have three/four small gripes with this laptop: There is something seemingly wrong with the Killer 1535 software suite and my Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting, I am also getting poor internet speeds and it does not recognise 5 GHz bands for some reason, even though the hardware should. Hopefully they will fix this soon. The RGB keyboard, although very useful and impressive, has slightly below-satisfactory inner-key coating, meaning that you can see a strange "band" pattern on the transparent/translucent parts of the keys where the light comes through. White RGB light can also display with a pinkish hue, but this is expected with most RGB keys. The keyboard however has an extremely satisfying feel and has a huge amount of key-travel; very impressive. The last point is the battery-life; with moderate use (no gaming, just internet browsing and document writing) you'd be looking at around 3 hours. It is quite low, but that being said it does have a 1070 inside and isn't designed for efficiency. In summary; all the specs (CPU, GPU, screen, SSD) work at the expected performance level, nothing is being throttled, limited or of a lower quality than advertised. On the contrary to what most people say, I believe this laptop is extremely quiet - for what it does. The fan can ramp up when the GPU is under load, but the fans do not resonate or ring, and there is no audible hysteresis. Sure, it gets loud, but it does sound consistent. I also love the track-pad; it is very responsive and it has built in software which can be customised (you can reverse scroll direction, adjust palm rejection, activate rotation gestures etc.) although the palm rejection is just above mediocre. I still wish they had separated the mouse buttons from the pad. Previous models had issues with USB bandwidth as well as cutting off USB connection when sending anything above 8GB in size to or from a USB stick. I still need to check this, along with some other things to see if the laptop is built properly to last. I still have not tested the audio-jack, or any ports other than the rear ones. Do note, the AORUS logo above the keyboard does light up, but the AORUS print on the top-right of the keyboard, as well as the blue trackpad do not. None of these are RGB; the on-button logo is fixed at orange, the print in the corner is painted orange and the mousepad has a blue underlay. Some of the pictures may give you the illusion that everything in this laptop is RGB; this is not the case, although I personally don't mind it at all. The speakers are solid with good base and no clipping/crackling, however there is significant distortion when loud bass and treble are played at the same time in a song (bass amplitude lowers to match volume of treble). Adequate for music, films and games, and actually better than some other speakers on much thicker laptops which claim to have "the best speakers". I would rate them 8/10 from personal standards, considering the thickness (or thinness) of this laptop. This is the one laptop I would recommend you DO NOT run a fresh OS install on fresh out of the box. Everything works well and the "bloatware" is minimum and tasteful; everything in there is important or very useful. This review might change over time (for better or for worse) and I will update it if need be, but as far as I am concerned right now, this is THE best 1070 gaming laptop you can buy. Go buy one now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just get it! Ok, no review here can top the professional ones, so if you are interested in this product check the many reviews around. I will just explain why I swapped a P35x v5 for this one: 1) performance. The Aorus has no compromises whatsoever, it's still light and portable, but performance is top notch. 2) built: trackpad is much better, and the keyboard too. 3) 1080p screen is plenty. Windows, IMHO, manages it much better than 3 or 4k in everyday activities. It's great for gaming too and 120hz G-sync is buttery smooth Pleasant surprises: This computer is SILENT. Seriously. In everyday tasks no overclocking fan present to quiet the FANs DO NOT TURN ON. It runs warm but not scortching hot, and it's dead silent. OK, the 7200rpm hard drive is noisy, but swap it with an SSD and you're done with noise. FANs are loud while gaming but the speakers do overpower the noise. Pleasant surprise 2: battery life is not as bad as I expected. 3,5 hours, more or less the same I got from the p35x v6 which featured a rather glitchy implementation of NVIDIA optimus. Overall: I am impressed. I come from macbook pros, and this is just a tad inferior in terms of trackpad (but not keyboard) otherwise built is top notch, performance is awesome, portability is very good, it's easily upgradable too.
