Anybody that knows me would know that I’m a prolific Mac user. It seriously would take a great Windows laptop to even half convince me to think about converting and the GIGABYTE Aero 15 has honestly really made me consider it.
The thing that surprised me most about the AERO 15 was its design. Now, Apple Macs have had the most well-designed laptops in the past, but it’s very clear to me after using this product that the gap is narrowing.
It’s 1.9cm thick and weight only 2.1kg, but it’s the stunning 1080p 15.6” display that puts this laptop in a class of its own. The overall design didn’t feel that much larger than my 13” MacBook Pro and this is partly due to the fact that the screen (which is significantly larger) has a ridiculously small bezel at 5mm wide. Every time I’d open it up, I’d be in awe over just how beautiful that screen looked. It’s one of the most immersive experiences that I’ve had whilst using a laptop, especially when watching videos or playing games. It’s worth mentioning that this laptop is perfect for creative professional as it’s got one of the most accurate displays (colour-wise) that I’ve had the pleasure of using.In Australia, the laptop comes in Black and Orange. The tester unit that I had was orange, and it was a little bit too much for me, but I can totally see it appealing to some. It stands out and plays well to the vibrant nature of the screen. You’ve also got a vibrant RGB Fusion Keyboard which is highly customisable. I found the default setting to be a little distracting, but thankfully changing it is an absolute breeze.
