User reviews

Pros: -An 8 core i7, RTX 3060, and a 240Hz display for how much?? You get a lot for your money -A SD card slot?? take my money! Cons: -Random hardware issues -No thunderbolt port -Only 6GB of VRAM Overall Review: I wanted a laptop to replace my aging gaming laptop and to be somewhat powerful as my desktop but won't gulp down 500W. This seemed to fit the bill. Perfect for video editing on Premiere Pro on the go. It feels pretty good, it's pretty light which makes it nice to carry around. There's a massive 99Wh battery so it'll last a while. I'm glad hardware has advanced to the point where laptops with powerful hardware can now start reaching thin and light territory. A lot of care and engineering went into making these laptops and it shows. The bottom is very well ventilated. The fans are quiet but when they need to ramp up, it dumps heat which makes the CPU and GPU cool. Early on when I powered it on and connected it to my dual 4k displays, it would freeze up. It still does it but not to where it was before. Just recently the BT chip on it acting up. Disabled/enabled, uninstalled/reinstalled device (yes even hit the delete drivers button) and it never came back up. Did though on a reboot. Not very confidence inspiring. Two days after writing this review, now the wireless goes out frequently. I really like this laptop so I want to believe that the hardware issues were caused by a package delay, caused by a train derailment per my tracking. There is seriously some top notch hardware. Be warned that this iteration does NOT have the mechanical keys! the previous iteration with the RTX 20 gpus do. This wasn't a make or break deal but was kind of disappointing. The keys are REALLY nice to type on. It's soft yet the feeling of pushing a button is there. I don't understand why nVidia decided to pair up the almighty RTX 3060 with only 6GB of VRAM. I do 4k gaming at times and sometimes I have the settings turned up all the way in games that chew up all 6GB. Unfortunately I'm returning this laptop due to the hardware issues but ordered a replacement. I do think this is a solid brand and a solid laptop model.
Pros: It has a great performance in games like Csgo, Rainbow six, Fornite, Valorant, COD Warzone. (all in ultra). The Keyboard is very comfortable and it is also customizable. Cons: Having 500GB of storage is not very good, but fortunately, it has a second M.2 SSD NvMe slot to increase the storage. Overall Review: I would recommend this laptop because is not too expensive. It has a good performance and a good screen refresh rate.
Pros: - Great performance - Solid build quality, no deck/keyboard flex. - Not a fingerprint magnet - Doesn't get hot to the touch / good thermal design - Not as loud as the Aero series (thinner metal laptops) - Good full size keyboard - Can be used with the lid closed - Amazing display for work and gaming - Minimal design - Good port selection Cons: - Fans kick on more then I'd like - Aorus software isn't that good (especially for the updates) - Lacks thunderbolt Overall Review: I got this laptop as a replacement for an older Gigabyte Aero (8th gen intel). I use it for work, gaming and as my main general purpose computer. I think it has the perfect thickness to balance thermal and portability. It doesn't get hot to the touch, doesn't show fingerprints and I love the quality and refresh rate of the display. The build quality is also very good, no creaks or worrying flex. It's plastic but feels sturdier then my metal built Aero 15. I dual boot Linux on it as well for coding and it works perfectly with it. The performance is good for it's specs but the fans do spin up more then I'd like when coding and running many VMs/emulators. Overall I'm very satisfied and highly recommend it.
