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 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Laptop I was initially put off this laptop by a number of negative reviews I read online. I took the plunge anyway and I'm glad I did. I figured it couldn't be as bad as people were making out if they're charging as much as they are for it. I use it for work, which is video editing and some 3d, and gaming. One of the things I really like I that it is a powerful laptop that looks professional enough for office use. Keyboard is lovely to type on, screen is gorgeous, loads of connectors ad long battery life. The one thing I am slightly disappointed with is the fans/cooling. Under load it can sound its trying to take off, given the hardware packed inside its kind of understandable. From what ive read it is a common problem with many of the current gaming laptops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great laptop The Aero 15x is a light, thin and overall great laptop for work loads and gaming. After carrying round a bulky dell inspiron 15 7000 series for a year I wanted something that looked professional but hid great specs in the misleading chassis. Pros: Great battery life Good screen Love the keyboard feel Great gaming and workload performance Good sale price £1799 on black friday/cyber monday week Cons: Trackpad could be worked on If you want that extra push of performance you need to put another ram stick in for dual channel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Laptop This laptop lives up to all mainstream reviews out there. It is light, extremely thin, keeps cool, has decent battery life (not the best but what else do you expect for a high end gaming machine) and has great hardware specs. Worth every penny and beats the competition all day long.

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.
