GIGABYTE Redefines Portable Pro Computing with the AERO 15
With an X-Rite™ Pantone® Certified Display and ultra-slim 5mm bezel
Sydney, Australia, May 2 – GIGABYTE today proudly announced the addition of the all-new AERO 15 to its lineup of slim, performance laptop PCs. Set to appear on store shelves in May, this 1.9cm thick powerhouse crafted from the finest of materials boasts an X-Rite™ Pantone® Certified 15.6” display panel shoehorned into a frame with near-borderless 5mm thick bezels.
The AERO 15 offers high performance with graphics power courtesy of the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060, and a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ CPU paired with dual-channel DDR4-2400 RAM. Storage comprises of dual M.2 PCIe x4 SSDs, enabling blazing transfer speeds and instantaneous response times. Thunderbolt™ 3 with transfer speeds up to 40Gbps also makes an appearance in the shape of a USB Type-C connector with 5V/3A output. All this for an RRP of AU$2,899.
Ultra-slim 5mm Bezel | Thin and Light
The stand-out feature of the AERO 15 is its display. Despite having a footprint as small as a traditional 14” laptop, it offers a 15.6” display. This engineering feat results in the world’s thinnest screen bezels, measuring only 5mm wide. Furthermore, portability and a slim form factor has been paramount in the development process, with the AERO 15 coming in at 1.9cm thick and 2.1kg – ensuring go-anywhere mobility and flexibility paired with massive processing power.
Outstanding Battery Life
Don’t find yourself stranded with an empty battery – the AERO 15 offers you up to 10h, or a full work day’s battery life, thanks to its massive 94Wh battery. Further flexibility is offered by the AERO 15’s slim and light AC adapter – featuring a USB charging port for your mobile devices.
X-Rite™ Pantone® Certified Displays – up to 4K
X-Rite™ Pantone® is a world-renowned authority on color, partnering with GIGABYTE to ensure true display color reproduction. Each AERO 15 display panel is fully calibrated to X-Rite™ Pantone® standards prior to shipping. The AERO 15 comes with a Full HD WVA panel, offering true-to-life project-to-print colors. A 4K option, equally X-Rite™ Pantone® certified, is set to be made available during Q3 2017.
GIGABYTE Fusion Keyboard | Uniquely Usable – Including RGB Backlighting
The AERO 15 not only comes with a full-size keyboard with tactile feedback for maximum usability, but is also the first to feature a 16.8 million color per-key RGB backlight to a professional laptop. You can bind macros to each key, boosting productivity, just as easily as you can control the lighting effects with the bundled GIGABYTE Fusion software.
Stand out from the crowd – choose from 2 colors
No expense has been spared when it comes to the look and feel – the AERO 15 chassis and cover are all machined from aluminum, using state of the art technology in chassis manufacturing, the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) is an automation of precise machine tools which creates well-detailed chassis.
The AERO 15 celebrates individuality – choose from two colors, ranging from sober and stylish Black to a fiery and edgy Orange. Each back cover also houses another unique GIGABYTE design feature, the Nano-Imprint Lithography triangle, adding yet another touch of exclusive feel to the CNC-machined cover.
