High-End All-In-One Performance For Those Who Need It
I am a huge fan of Gigabyte for their ability to create a laptop as small and portable as possible, with a battery that can last as long as possible (given the laptop specs), and a machine as powerful as possible.

The Aero 15x is wonderful and high-quality. It's smaller than its predecessor. The keyboard is responsive and very comfortable. The only two downsides I find is that the frame or build of the laptop I feel could be sturdier and the big downside lies with some driver issues which are not due to Gigabyte but are due to (surprise) Microsoft Windows 10, Intel, and possibly Nvidia. With enough tinkering around, these can eventually be mitigated.

Apart from that, I love the package of portability and power in a machine that can serve both gaming and media production.
