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 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be built in a much better, smarter way So, I got one. It`s a good machine in terms of performance, battery life and screen, but! It`s all about plastic or it feels like plastic (on site they say it`s "Unique Aesthetics with Aluminum Robust Body"). Dell XPS feels far more superior in terms of build quality. Their attempt to provide just 1 SODIMM 16Gb RAM module to let you add another one has completely failed. Mine was equipped with SODIMM from Kingson, CBD26D4S9D8ME-16, which is impossible to find anywhere. Their support also has no idea, so I had to by a dual channel kit from Corsair which works fine now. The touch pad is neither close to Apple, nor to Dell, bumpy, jumpy 2 or 3 fingers at a time. The cooling system is also weird. It`s kinda portable workstation/gaming laptop with just ordinary tiny coolers which are on par with my Dell XPS 15, but there much more heat produced by 6-core CPU and GTX1070 q-max... And yes, it overheats during stress testing, core 1 goes to 89 °C! In all the games and other CPU/GPU hungry apps it`s not an issue however. I might replace the thermal compound later to see if it helps, but cooling pad is not a solution. The sound is just OK. Their proprietary software, Smart Update is a tad glitchy and not immaculate. The good sides and the bottom line: - The keyboard is well-lit, LED color is customizable. - Size is very "handy", it`s quite portable. Thin bezel makes it look very modern - Performance is more than adequate with decent CPU&GPU. - 144Hz IPS 1080p screen is nice, clear and sharp - Lots of ports, incl. ethernet and TB3. - Good battery life - 2 x M.2 NVME slots, one populated with Toshiba 512Gb drive. I`ve added Samsung 960 EVO and use it as system drive. - One can tolerate all the disadvantages described above to have all the advantages)) Hope this short review was helpful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good! This is a thin but powerful machine. I do lots of digital art and rendering so the screen is perfect for me, and so far it's crunched everything I've thrown at it. Keyboard feels nice and I love the design of everything. My only downfall is the audio is a little tinny, but it's not worth deducting a star as I'm probably just used to my desktop speakers:)
Date published: 2018-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Extremely satisfied with this new purchase. With near to no bezel, the display looks amazing and the keyboard feels so satisfying to type on. Even though I very rarely game, the battery life and colour accuracy opens this laptop up to more than just gamers. Highly recommend.
