This laptop offers impressive specs, solid build quality, and great performance. The display is excellent with thin bezels, and the battery life is outstanding. It does have some minor issues with webcam quality and thermal throttling, but overall, it's a solid choice for content creators and gamers.

  • Solid build quality
  • Excellent display with thin bezels
  • Outstanding battery life
  • Good performance for content creation and gaming
  • Low-quality webcam and microphone
  • Thermal throttling under heavy load

The battery lasts for ages, and the performance of the six-core CPU and 1070 max-q was great.

The Gigabyte Aero 15X is an impressive laptop, featuring an Intel i7-8750H CPU, Nvidia 1070 max-q graphics, and a 15.6 inch 144Hz 1080p IPS matte display. The laptop has 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 512GB MVMe SSD, and offers great connectivity options. The build quality is solid, with a thin and lightweight design. The display is excellent, with thin bezels and vibrant colors, making it ideal for content creation. The laptop also offers good battery life, lasting over 6 hours with regular use and an hour and 50 minutes while playing demanding games. The laptop runs cool, with temperatures remaining in the mid-30s during normal use and maintaining good performance even under heavy load. The keyboard is comfortable to use, with individual RGB keys, and the touchpad is smooth and responsive.The laptop does have some minor drawbacks, such as low-quality webcam and microphone, as well as thermal throttling under heavy load. The fans, while not loud, can get a bit noisy under load, and the webcam doesn't produce the best quality. However, these issues are relatively minor and do not significantly impact the overall performance of the laptop. In terms of gaming performance, the laptop offers good frame rates in most modern games, but the 1070 max-q does not fully utilize the 144Hz panel in many modern games. However, it performs well in content creation applications, making it a solid choice for content creators and gamers. Overall, the Gigabyte Aero 15X offers an impressive combination of specs, build quality, and performance, making it a great choice for users looking for a high-performance laptop for content creation and gaming.

The 1070 max-q does not fully utilize the 144Hz panel in many modern games, but it performs well in content creation applications.
