“I was looking for unicorn-like notebook: fast, powerful, gaming-prepared but also light and with good battery life. Mission impossible you say?
I was glad to find that HIDevolution had the answer in the Gigabyte Aero 15. Right out of the box this thing catches the eye. Solid metallic build, amazing 15,6" screen with tiny bezels but, as advertised, quite light.
This is my first notebook with SSD, and the files transfer from my old desktop computer was noticeably faster (25 minutes vs 40 minutes).
Then I put the Aero 15 to the test with Witcher 3, GTA V and other games. It's really awesome to see the same performance of my old desktop (which had a powerful GTX970) here, in a tiny machine. The loading times are also way faster thanks to the better processor and, again, the SSD. The backlit keyboard also helps a lot, being customizable (I like to light up certain keys for specific games).
The screen is also amazing. I wasn't expecting this, but compared to my old IPS Monitor, color reproduction is more accurate. The tiny bezels helps in the immersion when watching movies or playing story-based games as well. I look at other regular notebooks and can't help to notice those big ugly bezels that don't really add anything but space for the camera.
Battery autonomy is also great and is the main reason why I chose the Aero 15. I'm moving to Europe for a Masters and I really needed something with enough battery life for a day at the University but "gamer" for a relaxing night with Mr Steam. Worldwide warranty is specially useful in my case too!
So, all in all, I'm super happy with my purchase. In hopefully many years I will buy again at HIDevolution and Gigabyte will be my first choice.”
