Gigabyte AERO 14 (2017) vs AERO 14 (2016) – what’s new?
The international manufacturer of computer hardware products, Gigabyte, released a new version of its AERO 14 (2016) laptop. The new updated model shares many similarities with its predecessor – the original AERO 14. We are talking about an Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, 8GB DDR4-2400, three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, SD card reader, and a 94.24Wh battery to name a few.
Both laptops feature a 14” QHD IPS display, however, the updated version has a calibrated display panel that is X-Rite Pantone certified. In addition, with the new device you get a second M.2 PCI-E slot and a Thunderbolt 3 port which AERO 14 (2016) lacks. The available GPU is GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, while the original AERO 14 sports the GTX 1060 6GB. Probably this is one of the changes that differentiate the Aero 14 from the Aero 15 as previously both devices were equipped with GeForce GTX 1060 6GB.
