Date Issued: 16th Oct 2017

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-CF2, 144Hz FHD IPS, 6-Core i7 8750H, 16GB DDR4, 512GB NVMe SSD, 8GB GTX 1070, Max-Q, Win10 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect laptop for a portable gamer An excellent portable gaming laptop. As soon as I booted it up I was amazed by the screen. This coupled with the amazing performance of the GTX 1070 and the Intel i7-8750H CPU makes for a great combination. The laptop fans are almost silent when the laptop is idle but don't get too annoying while gaming, especially if you have some headphones. The only slight drawback of this laptop is the keyboard. It's great to type on but I find some of my key presses don't register because it requires more force than I'm used too. However, this issue has improved overtime as I've used the keyboard more and gotten used to the pressure required. All in all, this is my perfect laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around laptop This is hands down one of the best laptops I've ever used, either for gaming or general productivity. The 1070 MAX-Q graphics card inside has handled everything I've thrown at it and the 6 core CPU has been great for general office work. Battery life has been great for my use and its not run out on me yet. Overall this laptop has been a great purchase, letting me have a great gaming experience whilst still being portable enough for me to carry around with me whilst travelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gaming laptop - pity about the sound I purchased the laptop through Scan and I am very happy with it so far. It has run everything I have thrown at it so far without a hitch. It had some issues when it was unpacked and started. After running the Windows update I noticed that Youtube videos would not run. It took a while to figure out but it turned out that the Intel drivers needed to be updated. I heartily recommend your driver updating program of choice when you start this machine. The chipset is fairly new so there are quite a few updates. After the driver updates the machine has run as expected. I have noticed nothing of the light bleed or the keyboard issues mentioned by other buyers. The one thing that pulls the quality rating down is the onboard speakers. Granted, laptop-speakers are never that good, but this sound very tinny. External speakers are required for optimum sound. All in all. I am very happy with my purchase so far, and everything was shipped very quickly and very well packed by Scan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything as expected Everything as expected, powerful and reliable laptop. The only downside are the speakers, as many reviews already state it they should be better for the overall price. A minor issue if what you are looking for is a good CPU and GPU on a thin and light laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute beast! Easily, easily the best, most powerful laptop I have ever owned. Gorgeous screen, great keyboard & trackpad. Great CPU and GPU combo, it just handles everything you throw at it. Fantastic gaming pc but equally great productivity machine too. The inclusion of the fast SD card reader and single ram stick was a fantastic bit of thought by Gigabyte. There can be minor light bleed issues, as with any screen this thin and bezel-less but it’s certainly not enough to bother me. I can very highly recommend this machine. 5 star from me.
Date published: 2018-08-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great Powerful and quiet, with a very good screen. Thin body, thin bezels, SD card slot. Let down by very poor keyboard (lots of presses do not register), mediocre touch pad, disgracefully-poor quality speakers, and Optimus. When idling, battery life jumps between 2 hours and 10 hours, and I have yet to figure out why. Frequent BSOD when waking from sleep.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy at your own risk. I purchased one of these from Scan and within moments of booting up (in a well lit room) I noticed a yellow glow in the bottom right corner and wow was it distracting. Tough luck if you want to watch or play anything slightly dark. This is not something you can fiddle with to make better, if it's there it's not going anywhere and for a laptop that's £2200 it's a disgrace. I was expecting some minor light bleed as it's an IPS panel with very thin bezels but this was beyond anything I expected. And if you're one of those people that's like "it's just light bleed, you get it on all screens" - I was upgrading from an Xps 13 which is also IPS and has thin bezels but that had next to no bleed so I can only assume it's gigabytes poor design/build quality. So Scan provided me a replacement which happened to be even worse. Apart from that, it was a solid laptop. Everything was as expected and was impressed with battery life, performance, port selection, typing experience, etc. Sound wasn't great, neither was the RGB keyboard which was dim in places. But two in a row with that kind of bleed? Unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great productivity machine with only a hint of the power that lies beneath We have just purchased this machine to help in a large project with the aim of having a portable unit that can handle VR, video editing and other content creation. The Aero impresses immediately out of the box with its slim bezel, overall good build and small charger. All in its surprisingly light and compact considering the enormous power at its disposal. It's worth noting that you don't get the kind of build you might expect from a Microsoft or Apple laptop, there is no unibody construction here, what you do get is a solid feel, lovely screen, plenty of ports and an overall decent keyboard and trackpad. Of course the real reason to buy the Aero is the combination of the 8th gen i7 and gtx1070. The combo does not disappoint. Once you've deleted the (far too many) items of bloatware from the laptop you're left with a screaming fast machine which has decimated all the tasks we've thrown at it. Unlike most laptops you genuinely feel that you're using a powerful desktop workstation and not something portable. Final notes. Fan noise is acceptable. Keyboard backlight is quite useful for productivity bit the software to set it up is gaming orientated and rather janky. Overall a great machine!
