Using a slightly modified design, new connections and new hardware grounded in an Intel Gen 13 and a Nvidia RTX 4070, the Aero 16 OLED seeks to win over gamers and creators alike. We put the laptop through its paces to find out what the case change and hardware upgrades bring to the table.

The Aero improves on last year's model when it comes to connectivity, and it retains its excellent exterior and great keyboard. Most importantly, you get incredible performance from the updated internals and a sensational OLED screen that can tackle virtually any creative task. That's impressive when rivals are pricier. Pay more for those machines and there are advantages. The MacBook Pro 16 is just as fast as the Aero and has better battery life. The Dell XPS 15 is slimmer and lighter and also lasts longer. For portable power, incredible screen quality and value, though, the Gigabyte Aero 16 is virtually unbeaten. It's an excellent mobile powerhouse.
