Reviews for the Gigabyte Aero 15 Y9-9UK4720P

88% Gigabyte Aero 15 Y9 review: RTX 2080 performance, at a price
Source: Engadget English
That's not Gigabyte's fault, though. It took the components it had and made a well-designed, fast and lightweight laptop that can grind through the most challenging games and content-creation chores. The company made it even better with tweaks to the touchpad and elsewhere, and the only shortcoming in this particular model (or any 4K laptop) is the battery life. It's also costly, but again, the price should hold up to rivals. Overall, the Aero 15 Y9 is an easy laptop to recommend.

85% Gigabyte Aero 15Y review: A portable GeForce RTX 2080 powerhouse

Having said all that, I really have few complaints about the Aero 15Y as a whole, and I think it will be very competitive going forward. I just wish Gigabyte was offering a version with a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q and a 1080p 144Hz display.

86.5%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
