- Keyboard: it's stiff and awkward to use at times, this could be a dealbreaker for some
- Finish: the matte black finish on the device is still very much prone to fingerprints
- Hinge: The hinge is rather loose when opened fully, not sure why
- Bloatware: A lot of unnecessary programs/utilities come pre-installed on the machine.
- Price: It is on the expensive side
Other than that I'm very pleased with the laptop!
I purchased my Aero 15W whilst it was on offer on Amazon for £1480 - significantly cheaper than it often sells for on here or anywhere.
After taking the Aero out of its sleek box and powering it on, you are greeted with the semi-automated, Cortana infused, Windows 10 setup process. This takes no time at all to complete, due to the nippy NVMe SSD (I had the slower Toshiba SSD installed in my unit).
Unfortunately, I purchased my Aero at the time when various large Windows 10 updates were rolling out. I spent the next day and a half updating Windows 10 over and over.
This is where my issues began...
Gigabyte Smart Update would fail to launch - uninstalling or trying various versions of the software failed to get it working
The ELAN Touchpad would randomly stop working - this forced me to restart the machine by way of keyboard shortcuts
The laptop would randomly switch itself off
The laptop would randomly restart itself with no explanation
The laptop would often refuse to wake from sleep, forcing me to hard reset the machine
Other issues with my Aero:
Very flimsy hinge after 110 degrees - it would flop open to the maximum angle of about 140 degrees after this point
Discolouration in the keyboard backlighting at the far left and far right edges of the keyboard
Enormous backlight bleed in the bottom left quadrant
Pro points I found with the Aero:
Up to 9 hours battery life, even while web browsing or watching videos
Near impeccable build quality (aside from the hinge issue explained above)
One of the finest IPS screens I have ever used - deep, inky blacks and a very well calibrated panel - the colours truly 'pop'
Excellent cooling system with options to tailor it to your needs and tastes - gaming on your lap is even an option
Typing on the keyboard is generally a very pleasurable experience
RGB keyboard backlighting is beautiful with plenty of customization
Negative aspects of the Aero:
The down-firing speakers with lowish maximum volume and very limited bass - why place speakers here? It's a shame as the sound quality is very decent
Silly placement of the arrow keys on the keyboard - I could not get used to this, no matter how hard I tried
The ELAN Touchpad - more a driver issue than the touchpad itself which has a good quality surface - installing hacked Windows Precision drivers is recommended (I did not have enough time with my Aero to even bother doing this)
Automatic display backlight control - more an issue with the poor Gigabyte software - I had to turn this option off as the software would continuously notify me when the backlight had been adjusted (very, very annoying!)
The laptop will enter sleep/hibernation when you close the lid to about 60 degrees
Due to all of these issues, the laptop had to go back.
Great screen in a really small 15 inches laptop. Not only works great with games, but also with CAD programs. The only thing I regret is not chosing Gigabyte first.
- capable of playing most current games with ease
- one of the best screens I've ever seen on a laptop
- great battery life
- beautiful design (why is every gaming laptop flashy and ugly?)
- the keyboard keys are on the rigid side
- the trackpad comes with ELAN drivers (this is fixable)
- gaming performance is not as great as other laptops in this price range
Overall, if what you're looking for is a mix between a MacBook Pro and a gaming laptop, this is probably the best choice for you!
