Best possible balance
Amazing build quality, even a bit better than it's 14-inch brother. After owning both, I can say with certainty that I love this machine. The screen is beautiful, accurate, and is the perfect resolution for a gtx 1060. Thermals are amazing for a machine this thin, and battery life is over 7 hours, 2-3x as long as any other competitor brand with a chassis this size. Totally recommend it.

Just a word of caution though, since it takes some getting used to: The hinge is a bit weak when pushed to the limit of either direction, closing or opening. The display panel is heavy enough for the hinge to not support the weight so it will begin slowly closing at an angle of about 40 degrees. Slightly annoying but once I get a torx screwdriver small enough to get at the insides I'll tighten it myself.

4 stars for the price. I get that we're paying for the pantone certification, 4x pcie thunderbolt, and thin bezels, but it still is just a gtx 1060, and Gigabyte says the remaining keyboard issues will not be addressed through firmware because the keyboard isn't wired for individual key functions, even though the keys are individually wired for backlighting (yes, I know, sigh). Also the hinge problems mentioned earlier. I expected extreme perfection for $2k.

If you're someone who needs a keypad, likes accurate displays, wants powerful internals without the bulk, and enjoys long battery life, this is your dream machine.

Great Buy for All-Purpose Laptop
The Aero 15 is probably the best all purpose laptop powerful enough for serious gaming. With Xotic upgrades it beats every other gaming laptop of compable size, weight, and battery life.
