Gigabyte Tweaks Aero 14 Laptops

Gigabyte announced a new version of its Aero 14 laptop. The company said this update is intended to help differentiate it from its big brother, the Aero 15.

This updated model shares many features of the original Aero 14, such as an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 8GB DDR4-2400, three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, Mini DisplayPort, SD card reader, and a 94.24 Wh battery. However, although both laptops are equipped with 14” QHD IPS displays, the updated version features a calibrated display panel that’s X-Rite Pantone Certified. Other improvements over the original include a second M.2 PCI-E slot for additional storage, as well as a Thunderbolt 3 port.

This light and thin laptop is equipped with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, compared to the GTX 1060 6GB in the original Aero 14. We believe this is one of the changes Gigabyte was referring to when it stated its intention to differentiate the Aero 14 from the Aero 15. Previously, both laptops sported a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. The company believes that this updated configuration gives end users the best balance between mobility, performance, and battery life.

The Aero 14 is available in three colors--black, orange, and green. We have reached out to the company for information on pricing and availability.
