The laptops are entirely built out of a single block of aluminum which is then CNC milled. This means that the laptop will be extra sturdy, thin, and light. The design is also on par with other manufacturers, with stylish body lines on the lid and base. The lid has an interesting pattern, with the rear part mimicking carbon fiber. The lid also houses the AERO logo, which looks very modern. The same logo also appears on the bottom bezel and the rear end of the laptop between the two heat vents. When it comes to the weight, the AERO 15 is pretty light, measuring at 2.00 kg, while being just below 20.0 mm tall. The AERO 17 is quite bulkier, coming in at 2.60 kg and being slightly taller, at 21.5 mm.


Both laptops come with 4K panels, but that is the only similarity, as everything else about them is different. For starters, the size is an obvious difference, with the AERO 15 using a 15.6-inch display, while the AERO 17 relies on a 17.3-inch screen. The AERO 15 has an OLED panel provided by SAMSUNG, which is known for its Super AMOLED technology. The panel support DisplayHDR 400 True Black, VESA, and covers 100% of the DCI-P3 gamut. The AERO 17 has an IPS panel, still supports VESA, DisplayHDR 400 True black, while covering 100% of the AdobeRGB. The displays are also X-rite calibrated and Pantone validated.

Specifications and features

The laptops have identical specs, with both of them offering both the Core i7-11800H and the Core i9-11980HK. These are shaping out to be the most powerful chips in Intel’s arsenal and are a clear answer to the Ryzen 5000 H-series CPUs. There is a slight difference with the GPU selection, as the AERO 15 offers the RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080, all of which are Laptop versions and have an identical TDP of 105W.

Both laptops have a fingerprint reader, which is embedded into the touchpad. They also share the same Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.2 support. The keyboards that they use are also exactly the same: the GIGABYTE Fusion unit, which comes with a per-key RGB backlight. As always, we can’t forget about the stereo speaker system which has DTS:X Ultra support, bringing you the best spatial sound during your gaming sessions.
