Update: Prices and availability now online. The new look is not just sharper and sleeker, but also cooler with a special focus on improved ventilation and display quality. Expect both white and black color options at launch.
Allen Ngo,

(May 28, 2019 update: The 2019 Aero 15 is now available for pre-order here through Gigabyte partners. Prices start at $1900 for the base Core i7 and GTX 1660 Ti configuration up to $4000 for the unlocked Core i9-9980HK with RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU and maxed out system RAM. The 4K UHD OLED option comes standard on all configurations.)

The Aero 15 series has been a huge success for Gigabyte as it's become a common alternative to the popular Dell XPS 15 especially for users who want more GPU power than what the XPS series currently has to offer. The Gigabyte system tops out at the RTX 2080 Max-Q while the Dell is limited to the GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q or GTX 1650 only.

All that power in such a small package, however, comes at the cost of heat. The original Aero 15 and Aero 15 Classic would become quite warm when running very intensive tasks. The 2019 Aero 15 redesign will address this that should hopefully lead to cooler surfaces and more stable clock rates.

The new chassis design incorporates larger 71-fin dual fans and five heat pipes with additional ventilation along the rear and bottom of the unit. The OEM claims that the new cooling solution can support up to 145 TDP which would make the chassis more suitable for the demanding Core i9 and GeForce RTX SKUs when compared to the original Aero 15 chassis.

Aside from the ventilation improvements, Gigabyte will also be outfitting the system with Samsung 4K UHD AMOLED panels, Killer E2600 RJ-45, and Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650.

Check out our images of the new Aero 15 below before the system becomes available this June. The announcement comes at the same time as the reveal of the new 17.3-inch Aero 17.

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.
