Gigabyte has announced 2021 back-to-school deals on select hardware from its premium gaming brands and series, AORUS and Aero included. These discounts are mainly found on Newegg or Amazon, and may involve up to US$900 on certain OLED-display options in some cases.

Gigabyte seems to think getting back to the classroom or lecture hall in 2021 would be made most effective with a new gaming laptop or monitor in tow. Its new Beyond the Classroom event offers the discounts that might make this possible.

They include a combination of deals and rebates off Gigabyte, Aero or AORUS displays or PCs on a variety of retail platform, mostly Amazon or Newegg. They involve the new Aero 15 OLED YD, a 4K laptop with up to 8GB of RTX 3080 graphics. A SKU with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD can be brought down from its normal US$2,999 price all the way down to a possible $2,099 with both automatic discounts and rebates.

Similarly, the same configuration but with a 512GB SSD may be had for up to $550 off, whereas one with 32GB of RAM and 1.5TB of storage in total can be found for nearly $600 off on Amazon. Alternatively, those with a PC they are happy with, but would like a new monitor for it, might consider some Gigabyte or AORUS options at better prices than normal.

They include 25- to 27-inch AORUS FI-series displays at up to $150 off on Amazon, or certain G- or M-series options (curved ~34-inch options included) for up to $130 off. Those with more space could consider the 43-inch QLED FV43U , or even the 48-inch 4K OLED FO48U, at $100 off their normal prices.

Even more deals might be found on AORUS US' new dedicated Beyond the Classroom page. Its listings are live from now (August 27, 2021), although the OEM never actually mentions for how long they will be valid.
