In a little under a year, the Aero has become Gigabyte’s flagship gaming laptop product line. These highly refined computers offer an excellent compromise between compactness and performance in addition to a large, high-quality display. The newest member of this product line, the Aero 15 V8 (i7-8750H), does not bring any revolutionary new features to the table, but it is the first Aero computer to incorporate a 6-core Intel processor.
With the V8, Gigabyte has concentrated on improving the Aero 15’s internal components rather than its exterior design. In terms of its outward appearance, the Aero 15 V8 is very similar to previous versions – which is a good thing considering how much effort this Taiwanese manufacturer has put into perfecting the Aero’s design. The Aero 15X V8’s sober look can be attributed in large part to its black aluminum chassis. The matte black coating used on top of and around its keyboard is in keeping with the Aero’s overall color scheme; it does, however, have a tendency to reveal fingerprint smudges.
