Gigabyte Aero 14 i7-7700HQ and GTX 1050 Ti Review

Gigabyte Aero 14

There are a lot of impressive notebooks and laptops on the market these days. Of course, when you think slim, powerful and portable, you’re very likely to encounter the Gigabyte Aero range. There have been a few variants of the Aero range over the years, but it looks like their latest may have gotten the balance just right.

Equipped with well-proven Intel Core i7-7700HQ, we know it’ll have the processing grunt needed for both work and gaming tasks. Of course, graphics are important too, and there’s an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card in there too. Of course, that’s not a crazy powerful GPU, but for a notebook, it’ll be a nice balance between power usage and a big performance boost. With a 94 Wh battery, and some optimised hardware choices, the Aero 14 can deliver up to 10 hours of usage; more than enough for a days work in the office.
