Reviews for the Gigabyte Aero 15 Classic-XA
Gigabyte's slim gaming notebook Aero 15 Classic-XA can display current games smoothly on its matte 15.6-inch screen (240 Hz, FHD, IGZO) thanks to its Core i7-9750H processor and GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU. Its other components look promising as well: an NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM in dual-channel mode and Thunderbolt 3.

Microsoft's Azure AI, while a welcome inclusion, isn't a killer selling point. But the Aero 15's strong performance, 240-Hz display, deep-travel keyboard and long battery life stuffed into a slim, aluminum chassis make its $2,499 price tag worth considering. However, it's hard to ignore the glaring bottom-bezel webcam, the ridiculously high temperatures and dimmer-than-average screen.

The Gigabyte Aero 15 Classic XA reeks of unfulfilled promise. It's got an attractive, tasteful design, gorgeous 240Hz display, and a compact and slim aluminum chassis. The hardware is top-notch as well, with the latest 9th-generation hexa-core Core i7 chip, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, and internal components from reputable vendors. What's more, battery life is truly excellent, and there are few laptops that even come close.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
