    The Aero 15 – (GTX 1060) has a significantly more powerful GPU than the XPS 15 – (GTX 1050) but has the same form factor and rocks that sweet bezel-less screens. The green color isn't my fav but I'm tempted to run the black one as a daily driver for a while.

    lol 2 mm thinner and $900 more than the year old helios 300? I know where to tell gigabyte to shove their "features"

    D2D, Love ya man subscribed about a month ago and have watched EVERYONE of your videos. You’re awesome man, would love to see a video comparing a cheap (Walmart type) laptop vs something like an XPS, to kind of educate what “budget” laptop buyers need to stay away from when buying something that’s not as premium (hopefully that makes sense). Keep doing what ya do!

    1900 for a keyboard with numpad and off the center touchpad. nnope.

    If my budget only allowed this version instead of the new one would you think its still worth it? Or do you have a better suggestion?

    I'm really interested in the upcoming Lenovo Ideapad 330s with GTX 1050, looks like great value and it is surprisingly light and portable. Otherwise great video!

    Dude, don't even compare it to an xps

  10. Dominic Distasio

    he says its a plastic build but its not. i have one and there are only a couple small areas with plastic (the side have some, and the bezel around the screen)

  18. Jhon Torrance

    This was purchased for my sisterへ and she absolutely loves it. She keeps on commenting about the quality of the screen being amazing. The battery life is sufficient for what she is using this for and is expected with the type of components in this. People have commented about the fan noise and I will say it is noticeable but isn’t that bad. It is only during high demand tasks which you can hear it.

    Man, back when Dave's review were this chill. Great Background music, Fun review. Good.

  22. I bought mine some years ago, after my warranty was over, I started having problems with the battery, keyboard and internet.
    I solved the keyboard issue but still my laptop doesn’t work if is not plugged and the internet drivers are fucked up, i cant be connected to the internet for more than 5 mins.
    I can’t also update the Bios cause the battery is fucked up and it shows 0% all the time even when connected.
    I highly don’t recommend to buy from gigabyte, i checked on the internet and i am not the first one with battery issues at least with this model.

    Great review tho!

  23. Help me people… I know nothing about computers. I'm a photographer and videographer.

    GIGABYTE AERO 15 OLED KC – 15.6" – Intel Core i7-10870H – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB GDDR6 – 16GB RAM – 512GB SSD –


    Dell XPS 17 – 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-10875H (16MB Cache, up to 5.1 GHz, 8 cores) -NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 6GB GDDR6 with Max-Q – 32GB RAM – 1TB SSD –

    Right at a 1k difference…. which is faster? I feel like I could upgrade the Gigabyte lol or pay someone to.

    Looks great outside, but the internals are not as refined as as an XPS or Precision laptop. For 1900 bucks it should be much cleaner since its up there in price with the big boys.
