Gigabyte's battery-packed (94.24 Wh) Aero14 has been upgraded with a VR-Ready GTX 1060. Other specs include a QHD IPS display, storage up to 1TB m.2 PCIE SSD, and RAM up to 32 GB DDR4-2400.

GIGABYTE's Aero 14 first released in Summer 2016 to much anticipation due to its powerful internals and enormous battery—all in a package under an inch thin and just over 4 lbs. Options for 14-inch gaming and workstation-class laptops are usually somewhat limited, so the addition of another VR Ready 14-inch laptop to competitors Razer Blade 14 and MSI GS43 is very welcome.

One of the chief selling points of the Aero 14 is its enormous 94.24 Wh battery, giving it some of the longest battery life around for a quad-core notebook. Other highlights include a QHD IPS display, storage up to 1TB m.2 PCIE SSD, and RAM up to 32 GB DDR4-2400. In terms of connectivity, the Aero 14 offers HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort, USB Type-C 3.1, and an SD card reader. All of this is packed into a 13.2" x 9.4" x .8" frame weighing 4.2 lbs.

The updated Aero 14 is available in 3 colors: black, green, and orange. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced, though the previous generation debuted at $1500+.

I am a university Lecturer and researcher in English writing, but I like to keep myself busy. Between weightlifting, MMA, and SCUBA diving, one of my life-long interests has always been computers. I used Macs until about 17 years ago when I switched to PCs because of an interest in games, but I'm still interested in top quality laptops that push the design envelope.
