Great Laptop, Beautiful Screen, Faster than my desktop

I've owned this laptop for about a week now and I'm very happy with what I got. Here are the basics so far:

I installed about 10 games on it so far. 500GB SSD is nice though I'll probably expand that at some point. I mostly play indie games but Rocket League played fantastically, very smooth and great picture. The games downloaded way faster than I expected, I've only ever gotten up to 20mb/s download speeds on my desktop's wifi and this laptop was handling 50mb/s+ without any issue. I guess I need to update my desktop's wifi adapter. The screen is really, really beautiful. There is absolutely no bleed from the edges and it looks super consistent across the image.

The keyboard is nice and I didn't even realize it was coming with a numpad, so that was a cool bonus. I have not yet figured out if I can turn the cycling colored lights on/off yet but you stop noticing it after about 10 minutes of use. It is nice the first time you open it up to watch it cycle for a bit. The mouse pad is VERY good, better than any touch pad I've tried to be honest. There are no buttons but clicking the left or right side of it is very natural and the pad feels really nice to the touch.

The webcam quality is fine, the placement is interesting but understandable with the thin bezel look they decided to go with. The casing of the laptop is awesome too, it's not covered in silly looking sharp angles and what not that a lot of other gaming laptops go for. It feels refined and I won't be embarrassed to be seen in public with it.

Lastly, it didn't feel like it was filled with bloatware. I haven't even found myself wanting to uninstall any of the small software items it came with. It's basically just got a dashboard of the function keys and quick select settings. I don't leave it on but I suppose it would be useful to have if you want to be messing with that stuff all the time.

After searching for a laptop for months, I'm glad I chose this one.

Great laptop!

I bought this laptop last week directly from the Gigabyte online store. The laptop is great, but it is the service and quality of the people I worked with (Daniel in Sales in particular) that have made my experience a very positive one. I had some minor issues which Daniel and the team at Gigabyte helped to immediately address and then they went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. You do not get that from large big box or online retailers.

As far as the laptop (Aero 15X8), it is fantastic. I have already bought a Surface Book 2, two different Razer Blade models (the RDX 2060 and the 2018 version), and an MSI GS65and in my search for a solid, yet professional laptop for gaming. I returned every one of them within a few days as the value, price and performance did just not add up for what I was paying. I am very happy with the Aero 15X... performance in games (Anthem, SWTOR, World of Warships, Xbox streaming look fantastic). And it looks fantastic but does not SCREAM G-A-M-E-R when you are using it mobile (which I appreciate as an OG). Thank you Daniel and Gigabyte for the great product and the even better service.
