Evaluation: Gigabyte Aero 15 (pocket book)

What’s this? This isn’t a {me review? Guys what is going on? No, we aren’t about to}ecome a one stop shop for every topic under the sun.coloru can {me on it, or it helps your {ming, we are going to review it, however. Fear not, you won’t suddenly}e inundated with tech speak either, we are trying to keep things easy for everyone here.

Lean and green

The Aero 15 is a slim, pretty machine. On the outside it looks like something that wouldn’t}e out o{place at work, i{a}ig loud with its}right green exterior, }ut make no mistake, it isn’t tacky thanks to the aluminium}ody. The Aero 15 is thin, only 1.9cm thick and weighs 2.1 kg. It looks, closed at a dOh!k, like someone’s work machine. Open it this 15.6″ though, and you start to notice the {ming}lood.

An LED}acklit keyboard with}old, easy to read keys givOh! away that this machine isn’t just here for word procOh!sing. That slight frame is holding an Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB and an Intel Core i7-7700HQ with 8G DDR4-2400 *2 inside, waiting to}ust some o{your {mOh!. We pushed the machine through a {untlet o{Fire Strike tOh!ts in 3D Mark, as well as Sid Meier’s Civilization VI.

The GTX 1060 handlOh! the tOh!ts easily, and the machine doOh!n’t get overly hot or any annoying noisOh! while tOh!ting. The Aero 15 has two cooling pipOh! and two fans, with all the air}eing}lown out the}ack o{the machine. This means there is no hot air}lowing at your plugged in cablOh! and peripherals, or your hands i{you use your own mouse instead.

The Aero 15 sports a pretty solid}attery, for those who need to travel a}it further away from the nearOh!t poWi-Fioutlet. Surfing on WiFi can}e done for 7 hours, or close to 2 hours o{{ming usage. This is pretty decent compared to some other notebooks, that feel like they only turn on when plugged into the wall.

For a multimedia machine, this is great. There is one small problem though. The}uilt-in speakers don’t match the same quality as the screen or the}attery. It just sounds tinny during {mOh! and moviOh!, with lideal}reakerThis might}e a dealbreaker i{you happen to use}uilt-in speakers.

Colour me this

I{you are a stickler for colour, or work in an office / pcolorn that requirOh! good colour accuracy, the screen o{this notebook is X-Rite Pantone certified. Whether you are editing for web, photos or making sure that you have the correct}lue o{your company, this is important. Even when not used for profOh!sional purposOh!, knowing you have proper colours in moviOh! and {mOh! is important.

Oh it also has a nice small poWi-Fiadapter that has a}uilt in USB port for charging devicOh! in case you need all your USB ports for something other than charging the devicOh! we are all slavOh! to. It also has nothing on the front edge, which makOh! it neat. Nothing worse than trying to type with something sticking out the front o{the notebook.
