Earlier this week Gigabyte announced their new Aero 15 which is already available for pre-order at certain retailers. This just 19.9 mm thin laptop is equipped with an Intel Core i7 7700HQ as well as an NVidia Geforce GTX 1060. The powerful duo is further supported by the fast DDR4 2400 memory and two possible M.2 PCIe x4 SSDs. To offer the best connectivity possible, Thunderbolt 3 is used.
The extremely big battery, topping upwards of 94Wh, should allow up to 10 hours of continuous work without need to be recharged.

Since the Gigabyte Aero 15 was designed for photo editing, performance alone doesn’t cut it. Therefore the display turned out to be a real eye-catcher. Even thought the dimensions of the Aero 15 roughly match those of a 14” Notebook, a 15.6” Display is employed. This is possible due to the 5 mm frame used, which is right now the world thinnest frame ever used on a laptop. Aside from the size, Gigabyte partnered up with X-Rite™ Pantone® so that the Aero 15 can display colors as real as possible and all models are thus calibrated with the X-Rite™ Pantone® standards. The first model of the Aero 15 lineup will be equipped with a full-hd wva display. A 4K version will follow in Q3 2017.
The Aero 15 features a full-sized RGB keyboard with tactile feedback for maximum ease of use, comfort and style. Macros will also be supported and can be bound to any key.
The Gigabyte Aero 15 will be available in the colors black, green and orange and arrive around mid of may. If you are interested, stay tuned: A complete review will be available on our site soon.
