  • @Linus Tech Tips Can you do a review of the new Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED ? I want to use it for 3D-Animation and Rendering. I am not sure about thermal throttling in the new chassis with more air vents. There are versions with GTX 1660Ti and RTX 2060 and not sure which is better for my needs. Awesome Channel by the way!

  • Is it just me or are these new laptops getting ridiculously expensive?? The Aero is the cheapest of three shown in the video and it's $2400!

  • Instead of a RTX 2070 Max-Q, I wish we had the option to have the GPU be a RTX 2060 instead, and that not being a Max-Q version. This would help reduce the cost of the laptop and make it more appealing to those that just want to have the ability to turn on ray tracing in their games, while not spending so much to get that ability. Sure you might loose out on a few frames and overall have a weaker performance then the more stronger GPUs, but I don’t anyone is gonna be complaining if whatever they’re playing is at a very steady 60fps or one that’s around that area with ray tracing on. Aside from that, this laptop might be my first upgrade from the Acer Nitro 5 laptop that I’m using now. That 94 WH battery and 1TB of storage is hard to turn down, especially when it is one of the only reasonably priced laptops out their to have this in it.

  • The webcam's audio was CERTAINLY TRASH, but I didn't think the video looked all that bad, compared to webcams I've used in the past(which were pretty crappy). Then again, I don't use webcams much at all so... whatev.

  • After watching your video I've compared the three devices and ended purchasing the Aero 15-X9 But I've paid around 2660$ :( in order to get it as I live far from the USA I've chosen the I7 processor as I don't think a unit this thin will be able to cool the I9 pretty well, so no actual gain. For the graphics, I think RTX-2070 is enough since I'm a developer and a casual gamer so no need to pay more for the RTX-2080. For the screen also I think UHD for development is not meaningful :/ Finally for the performance!!!??? I told you I'm far away from the USA so waiting for it to arrive in order to know :)

  • Its screen and quality is much better than razer blade has. Check out amazon reviews on real customers of razer blade - noise whine + shitty screen and shitty battery, no pros at all comparable to Aero. Also Dell design is garbage, no minimalism. So why you saying its better to buy razer/dell?
