The GIGABYTE Aero 15X v8-BK4 15-inch high-end gaming laptop has received positive reviews for its top-of-the-line hardware that delivers a powerful performance, including the latest six core Intel CPU, a lightning fast NMVe SSD, and Nvidia’s powerful GTX 1070 that makes use of the efficient Max-Q technology. The thin and light chassis is awesome for portability, and it has a great battery life, especially for a laptop that packs so much power. Users praised the stunning 144Hz FHD display, along with its durable design. However, under load it does heat up, and some noted that the trackpad is average at best. The speaker quality is also lacking, and the webcam is awkwardly placed at the bottom the display. The GIGABYTE Aero 15X v8-BK4 15-inch is a hot new gaming laptop that is blisteringly fast, but it will run hot during long gaming sessions.

    In addition to a powerful CPU and a potent GPU the thin Aero 15X is also equipped with a matte IPS panel, an NVMe-SSD, and Thunderbolt 3. Even battery life is pretty decent.
