Gigabyte's Aero 15X is a working laptop, it may have a GTX 1070 Max-Q powering its 144Hz panel, but it does not offer G-SYNC. Instead it has X-Rite Pantone certification, perfect for professional work. The 15.6" laptop is 18.9mm thick and weighs in at 4.4lbs, with a fair amount of that being the 94Wh battery. TechSpot was somewhat disappointed to discover the 16GB of DDR4-2666 is on a single DIMM, and suggest picking up another immediately to enjoy the benefits of dual channel memory. If you are looking for a laptop you can design graphics and video on, with enough power for occasional gaming then check out the Aero 15X.
"Today we're taking a closer look at the Gigabyte Aero 15X, launched alongside Intel's new H-series Coffee Lake processors which brought up to 6 cores and 12 threads to the laptop form factor. Gigabyte is key to stress this isn't just a gaming laptop, but a machine designed for productivity, and that shows with features like an X-Rite certified display."
