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.

15.6" Gigabyte AERO 15X v8-CF1, 4K/UHD IPS, 6-Core i7 8750H, 16GB DDR4, 512GB NVMe SSD, 8GB GTX 1070 Max-Q, Win10 Pro is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid laptop, with great speed and specification for a good price We required a laptop that had Thunderbolt 3, the i7 8750H (best for video editing) with the GTX 1070 (a great alternative to the newer RTX range) and this offering from Gigabyte had it all. We were close to going for the equivalent Razer laptop, but this one had an extra dedicated USB 3.2 Gen 2 port, and a card reader, which just gave it the advantage. The 4k screen we opted for looks crystal sharp, and the build quality seems solid enough - the ports giving enough resistance to feel 'well-made'. The power cord transformer isn't too large, and I'm having lots of fun with the Gigabyte Fusion software - customising the keyboard colours. Not tested the battery life yet, as this unit will spend most of it's time plugged in on-site - rather than being used 'on the move'. All in all, it felt like a good value purchase and should last us a good few years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty unit, but I'm sure this laptop is good. I'm sad to write a bad review, because from all the others I've read online, this laptop seemed perfect from my needs; and I'm sure it is, but I was unlucky and I received a bad unit. I returned the laptop for these reasons: the laptop run into a boot loop ten seconds after finishing the Windows 10 setup, and wouldn't boot anymore afterwards; also, for the two minutes I was able to look at the screen, it showed a ridiculous amount of backlight bleed, visible even in broad daylight (12 AM), in big, light spots. Since I can't accept a brand new laptop that doesn't even boot out of the box, and shows a screen defect, the review for MY particular unit is negative. The pros I can give after having the device for a day, turned off: the screen resolution was amazing (4k makes this awesome sharp text..), and the build quality was solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Laptop After a very long deliberation over several think and light laptops (and being put of by some negative reviews about the gigabyte 15x 4k; stating there were hard/software conflicts) I took the plunge. Received it today. Firstly from moment of order Scan send a bunch of emails that keep you informed as to exactly where your order is which was great.I requested a Monday delivery (Free option) and it came on the Saturday which was great. Unboxing was exciting. It is a very well built machine that feels god to touch. After setting up windows I got to play a little. the keyboard is nice to use with enough key travel to feel like you are typing. Its tactile enough. Of course the keys are back lit and come with a number of options (wave, rain drops, marquee) that can play with the colour across the keyboard. The trackpad is sensitive enough (had read some poor reviews about this) and in windows it works well. Have not tried it in games yet. The 4K screen is beautiful with no colour bleed (something else that had been criticised) . If you are contemplating buying a laptop at this cost, BUY THIS ONE. It is solid, beautiful and portable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A powerful portable media creation laptop On paper, this laptop has all the features to make it a media creation powerhouse. 4k panel, 8th gen i7, 1070 GPU. I bought this laptop to do video editing work remotely. I think it might just replace my editing desktop. The Gigabyte Aero 15x performs well whilst using Premiere Pro for video editing, it does not quite play 4k files from my GH5 smoothly whilst editing, but is enough to get the job done. I opted to upgrade the memory from 16GB to 32GB utilising the extra free slot. There is also a spare NVMe for an additonal SSD, so a couple of things to upgrade to keep this laptop going for longer. The GPU is powerful enough to play some high end games which doesn't hurt in downtime whilst travelling. The features come with a premuim price tag but there really is no other combination right now that offeres as much as the Aero 15x. I will most likely use it for the next 3+ years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful hardware, extremely difficult and disappointing software setup. Pretty much everything with this laptop is as stated in the description. It's powerful and extremely aesthetic, portable and useful. The problems arose when I first started using it. This product does not seem to work properly out of the box, and has major software/driver/OS issues that cause crippling OS lag and lag with programs like web browsers. I have yet to figure out a permanent fix to this, so I am taking it to a professional computer shop to see if we can diagnose a solution.
