Gigabyte Aero 15X-CF2 (W/ Pantone screen & GTX 1070 Max-Q)

Rating: 8.0.

The updated Gigabyte Aero 15X is an intriguing and exciting machine. For starters, it’s a 15.6in system with a frame that looks almost impossibly slim and light – because Gigabyte has crammed that larger panel into the body of a 14in machine.

That’s not the only interesting thing about this laptop. It’s got a screen calibrated by Pantone, so colours should be near-perfect, and its aluminium body contains the Max-Q version of Nvidia’s GTX 1070.

This version of the Aero15X is a little more expensive than the model we’ve reviewed before – and it’s more expensive than the Razer Blade, which is its key rival. Can we be convinced to part with our cash?
