Computer maker Gigabyte recently launched its latest laptop model, the Aero 15. Similar to its predecessor, this ultra-thin laptop is designed for heavy duty working or for unlimited gaming. 

The 15.6 inches screen has good resolution and can be adaptive for multi-use. Although classified as ultra-thin there are still parts that are thickened to accommodate the port. Don't worry, it won't even be noticed. It is known to run virtual reality software or applications without a hitch. Despite the size, if you consider its full specification, it can easily compete with another high-end machine in the market.

With its ultra-thin classification, Gigabytes Aero 15 is going against the notion that a gaming computer should be at least bulkier. The size should support high-end applications and other hardware necessary to provide enough cooling apparatus.

 Some critics are still baffled how some hardware can fit-in in its 0.75-inch thickness on some of its thinnest points. At least for a gaming notebook, its weight of only 2.1 kg is already one of the lightest. Other laptops with the same function can be twice as heavy. Its screen so bright and pixels so powerful. Colors are magnified to the hilt. Some people call it a 14" laptop with a 15.6" display screen.

The Aero 15 comes with an Intel Core 17-7700HQ CPU, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060GPU with 6 GB of VRAM, 512GB SSD, and 16 GB ddr4 RAM. It is comparable with the RAZER Blade, another high-end laptop with super thin classification.  

Its screen is surrounded by just 15 millimeters competing with other leading brands in the market.  A thinner bezel means a bigger display screen for the computer, the screen is the first with X-Rite PANTONE certification. To top it all off, gamers can purchase the awesome Gigabyte Aero 15 at $1,900 with additional shipping costs.
