GIGABYTE Aero 14 Gaming Laptop Revealed

On the third day of Computex 2016, we were invited to the GIGABYTE VIP Showroom up on the 36th floor of Taipei 101. On display was the new GIGABYTE Aero 14 gaming laptop [Amazon]. It claims the title of the world’s most portable 14″ gaming laptop. Let’s find out why.


GIGABYTE Aero 14 Overview

In this video, Cyril Largent, GIGABYTE Senior Marketing – Europe, gives us an overview of the new GIGABYTE Aero 14 gaming laptop’s key features.


Unique Aesthetics

The GIGABYTE Aero 14 uses a unique and environmentally-friendly Nano-Imprint Lithography process to impart a 3D look while retaining the solid metallic feel with its full aluminium chassis.

You may be surprised to learn that the Aero 14 is only 19.9 mm thick, and weighs just under 1.9 kg. The Aero 14 will come in three colour options – black, green and orange.


Gaming Performance

The GIGABYTE Aero 14 is no ordinary Ultrabook. It is a gaming Ultrabook  powered by the latest 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with dual-channel DDR4 memory and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M/965M GPU.

It also features M.2 SSD internal storage, with a Type C USB 3.1 port for external storage. Even with so much high-end hardware, the Aero 14 has a battery life of 10 hours, thanks to its large battery capacity of 94.24 Wh.

Gamers will also enjoy the customisable Macro keys on the keyboard. They can use the GIGABYTE Macro Hub software to customise them to assign them to launch key combinations.


Brilliant Display

The GIGABYTE Aero 14 also comes with a magnificent IPS display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, so gamers will have a great gaming experience on-the-go.

Gamers who prefer larger, and higher-resolution displays will love the fact that it comes with both a HDMI 2.0 port and a Mini DisplayPort. This allows the Aero 14 to display out to, not one, but two 4K monitors simultaneously!
