Reviews for the Gigabyte Aero 16 XE5
Source: Trusted Reviews
The Gigabyte Aero 16 XE5’s sensational screen, powerful internals and top-notch keyboard make it a good companion for creative tasks, especially if you don’t want to spend MacBook money – but it’s limited by its poor battery and lack of features.

The Gigabyte impresses initially thanks to its stunning AMOLED display, crisp keyboard and sleek aluminium chassis, but closer examination reveals several areas where it doesn't quite hit the mark. The processor and graphics core are quick – but faster elsewhere. It alao falls behind rivals when it comes to battery life and connectivity, and there's nothing to choose between the Gigabyte and the competition at the checkout: the Aero, the Asus and the entry-level MacBook Pro all cost £1,999 exc VAT. The Aero supplies sensational screen quality and a superb chassis, but you'll find more speed, connectivity and battery life elsewhere – so we'd consider other machines just as much before laying down any cash for the Gigabyte.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

66.67%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
