Gigabyte have updated their Aero and Aorus family of laptops with the new 8th generation Intel chips.  Depending on the model, you will find either a i7-8850H or i9-8950HK inside as well as a GTX 1080 or 1070.

The Aero laptop has a 'bezel-less' 144Hz monitor, by which they mean a 5cm bezel surrounding the 15.6" 4k display.  The chassis is an impressively svelte 1.8cm thick, especially when you consider they squeezed a GTX 10X0 inside.  Audio is provided by Dolby Atmos and Sound Radar and of course there are RGBs below your keyboard which you can program, along with macro keys.  The 94.24 Wh battery will keep you gaming for quite a while, even when you are on the go.

Also announced were the The Grand Trio, the X9 DT, X7 DT V8 and X5 V8 gaming laptops.  All three models feature a 144Hz IPS G-SYNC panels which have been X-Right Pantone corrected.  They sport the same Dolby Atmos audio as the Aero as well as RGB infested keyboards.  Storage is provided by a pair of M.2 PCIe SSDs as well as a 2.5" HDD for your larger files.  Connectivity includes a Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 Gen.2 Type-C port as well as a USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 Gen.2 Type-A ports, with both HDMI and DP video out. 

The basic specs of the laptops can be seen below.

A 5cm bezel? Nearly two inches all around?! That is certainly NOT bezelless by any stretch of the imagination

I have the previous model. Bought it for the 144hz panel and gtx 1080. The hinge material is weak. I had a msi previously(destroyed in a truck fire) and although it was made of plastic,I actually preferred it more.
