Best in class - couldn't be more satisfied
Bought this primarily for gaming as my previous desktop computer was getting old and wanted a more mobile setup. Great product! Running new games such as PUBG and Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Ultra settings super smoothly, which was the most important thing for me. Keyboard feels very good to the touch, as does the touch pad - although I do think having the numpad puts me off typing slightly, maybe it's something I'll need to get used to.
Overall, was worth every cent I paid for it and would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a sleek, powerful gaming laptop.
Excellent Lightweight Powerhouse with forgivable cons.
Lightweight and sleek considering the power this thing is packing. The display is fantastic.
It took a little bit to get the Aero running nicely, lots of bloatware and poor drivers out of the box.
Keyboard is sometimes unresponsive and felt slightly squished on first use. After a week I am becoming a lot more comfortable with it.
Loud fan noise under heavy gaming and runs quite hot, but that's to be excepted with a thin and light.
Great options for upgrades with an additional M.2 slot
Great battery life
Overall very happy with my purchase handling everything I need thus far.
Great travel companion
Purchased one with the mindset of gaming while travelling. Definitely premium price for what you get. Nevertheless; so far, so good! Hope more companies follow suit with the portable gaming machines!
Positives: Screen, size, weight, build quality
Negatives: 1070 not used on battery, web cam location, gets really hot while gaming!
Powerful with Portability
I edit a lot of videos, and with this sweet machine I am able to work on the go. I love that it has all the ports I need! It has an excellent battery life and you can't beat the performance. It's lightweight yet the body feels sturdy. I also love the sleek design.
Gigabyte Aero 15-X8 - Light and powerful professional laptop
Lightweight, but with very good specifications. Gaming capable, but with professional styling not generally found on laptops with good graphics cards. Good for content creation with high resolution, certified display and full SD slot to import/export media and other files. Good variety of ports, including USB3/3.1/Thunderbolt and two display ports (HDMI/mini-display) and an ethernet port. Quality machined aluminium shell. The 16GB RAM//512 GB SSD model has good upgradability as it uses only one of the two available RAM slots and M.2(PCIe) slots respectively. Good battery life sets it apart from most gaming capable laptops. Overall was the best match for my work and personal needs.
Great laptop and top of the line.
The laptop has great specs and the price is great too. Definitely worth buying for the games I play. The LED keyboard is awesome too has it has RGB and it looks fantastic. The only bad thing is the light on the lid can't be turned off, but it's minimal compared to the quality.
Style: GTX1060 (6GB) + FHD 144HZ + Win10 PRO O/S
It was a toss up between this and the Asus Rog Zephyrus. I settled on this in the end, the single 512 SSD, Windows 10 pro and a decent battery life sealed the deal for me. So far I'm really impressed quick boot times and has handled every game thrown at it so far. In the echo of most reviews the camera placement is a bit off, but this really isn't an issue for me the super thin bezel makes the screen look fantastic. Odley enough I received a driver utility disk but the device has no optical drive. Obviously everything is available online anyway so I guess I can use that as a coaster. All in all awesome.
Professional and Slick
Recently I bought this laptop out of all the other laptops juggling between price and performance, but also the portability when it comes to travelling and gaming. I bought the Aero 15x v8 which comes with an i7-8750H and a GTX 1070 Max-Q. The Aero 15x is a delight when it comes to gaming on the go, weighing only 2kg. The design of the Aero 15x does not scream "e-sport gamer" unlike most other gaming laptops do. However when it comes to gaming on titles such as Monster Hunter World, the laptop does come fairly hot and the fans will be very loud.... The other aspect I did not like about the laptop is how the Gigabyte logo on the back of the screen is illuminated and cannot be turned off. While most people talk about how awkward the web-cam is positioned, I personally don't really need the need of a webcam but overall it is a nice addition to have if I ever needed to use one.
ideal laptop - Gigabyte Aero 15X
A perfect laptop for gaming and business user. Aero 15X is definitely much thinner and lighter than others brands' gaming notebooks and has excellent performance with most of video games. I am highly recommend to anyone who wants to have a powerful and light weight laptop. It would not disappoint you.
Best in class laptop, if nothing goes wrong
Out of all its competitors (MSI GS65, ASUS Zephyrus, Razer Blade 15), it is undeniable that the Aero 15 is the best in class due to its overall feature set.
MSI GS65 - Lighter (up to 400g combined with power adapter), similar specs, but is way worse in maintainability as the motherboard needs to be completely removed in order to access the M.2 and RAM slots. Battery life is also marginally worse.
ASUS Zephyrus - Heavier, similar specs, much worse battery life, also bigger and less aesthetically pleasing.
Razer Blade 15 - Worse battery ...life, only one M.2 slot, and is much more expensive. Given the above points, I went ahead and purchased an Aero 15. But the unit is known to possibly have keyboard issues down the line, as well as BSOD/driver compatibility issues. So I'm hoping nothing goes wrong in the future.
Bought the Gigabyte Aero 15 after my MSI computer was getting old. Opening the pack it's very thin and light. The build quality is amazing and feels really good. The computer runs really well and quiet. The laptop is portable and the screen goes almost to the edge. It run's the games I play (Dota, Rocket League and COD) with absolutely no trouble and doubles up as a work computer. I've never had such a good, high quality laptop. Would definitely recommend.
Best Laptop Ever
I previously owned a Sager NP6752 which was very bulky and big. As a uni student, it was really hard to bring it to uni to do my work. I'm very content with my purchase of the Gigabyte Aero 15 as its perfect for both gaming and school work.
Pros: bezel-less, lightweight, long battery life(very long)
Cons: In-built Camera is inbetween the screen and the keyboard which is a little weird.
Great Thin and Light Gaming Laptop
Perfect thin and light gaming laptop. Great for photo and video editing, especially with that beautiful display
Solid build quality. Class leading battery life even when gaming.
Very decent thermal performance considering the small size of the laptop.
Love the look of the laptop. it does not scream "gaming" at you. RGB keyboard is a nice touch.
Highly recommended gaming and video editing laptop.
Gigabyte Aero15X Mixed Feelings Review
I have mixed feelings about my Gigabyte AERO 15x the 4k Model.
I have never owned such a powerful laptop before and I was excited to test the capabilities, coupled with the additional mobility. Should my expectation of what it could've been diminish my experience of what it is. Perhaps not, but Gigabyte could learn a thing or two about managing expectations and exceeding them where it counts.
Out of the box, its a sleek looking piece of hardware. However it lacks finish. I don't know if it was intended that the triangle "counters" (the t...ypographic term for the inside of the letters A and B), as in the Gigabyte logo, on the back are shiny rather than the matte black that the rest of the backing has. This is a small thing but it's literally my first impression of it and what i'm going to see a lot of the time the laptop is sitting closed I'm just not sure it looks right. My second unfortunate let down in early impression was that the RGB colour keyboard is nice too but my right shift key doesn't light up. This one thing is a small thing which I will eventually get fixed but it did colour my initial experience and is especially noticeable at night. Also the software to control it meaningfully is still lacking. I wish the function key operated in such a way that it turned every key into a programmable macro. The "end" key on my board needs to be decidedly down too otherwise it mightn't actuate. In the few weeks I have owned it the battery has never exceeded my expectations. In fact I had to adjust my expectations downward after reading an article that said with any gaming laptop these days you're lucky to get an hour of intensive graphical output without being plugged in. I have never gotten anything close to the all day battery boasted and the time remaining predictor will swap from, 7 hrs fully charged with no programs running to 3 or less when I start actually using it.
10/10 would recommend to anyone looking at something powerful but sleek. Excellent machine that has more then what I need, as a music producer this is complete overkill. The large battery is perfect if you want to travel and continue to create or watch movies. Good build quality. Perfect
