SKUs include the Core i7-6700HQ, GeForce GTX 970M, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, and 256 GB SSD with the option for a 512 GB SSD.

Gigabyte officially unveiled its 14-inch Aero gaming notebook at this year's Computex. Its thickness and weight of just 19.9 mm and 1.89 kg, respectively, make the notebook very portable considering the power underneath. Though the Taiwanese manufacturer has yet to announce any official prices worldwide, Gigabyte UK has already listed a couple of SKUs complete with suggested retail price tags.

According to the posting by Gigabyte UK, the Aero 14 will launch as two SKUs with the following features:

  • 14" QHD / i7-6700HQ / GTX 970M 3 GB / DDR4 8 GB x2 / 512 GB PCIe M.2 SSD / Win 10 Pro / 2yrs / RRP £1,499
  • 14" QHD / i7-6700HQ / GTX 970M 3 GB / DDR4 8 GB x2 / 256 GB PCIe M.2 SSD / Win 10 Pro / 2yrs / RRP £1,399

The cheapest model will cost around 1750 Euros if converted while the more expensive model comes out to be around 1890 Euros. The system comes with dual M.2 slots, so users can always add more storage if necessary. More details and information on the Aero 14 can be found in our previous article.

Exactly when the rest of the world can expect the Aero 14 remains to be seen, but the UK listing suggests that we won't be needing to wait much longer. A quick telephone call to Gigabyte Germany about the availability of the Aero 14 returned no answers.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
