GIGABYTE 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very Mobile -- Super light considering its power
Gaming Ready -- Using Nvidia's optimizer, it preset Fallout 4 to ultra settings and held a solid 60fps! (~200fps in LoL maxed out)
Solid Construction -- I was most surprised by the construction... Its the best I have seen in a non-apple laptop.
Sharp Screen -- Being a 14" screen, the 1080p almost looks as sharp as my Note 5's screen. Viewing angles are fantastic. Colors are pretty good.
Battery -- Easily had 4hrs of regular non-gaming use. (Don't game on the battery, FPS gets capped)

Cons: Keyboard -- Not the best keyboard I have seen. Very clicky with not much linear travel. (you will need to get used to this)
Software -- Applications become blurry because of the software. This is probably fixable so take this "con" lightly.
Charger -- Bit bulky compared to the laptop itself.

Other Thoughts: So far I have not encountered anything serious that would make me want to return this laptop. At the price I paid for it ($1099) its an absolute steal! I should also note that the speakers were surprisingly good; base was good considering they are so small. While gaming the computer does heat up quite a bit obviously and the fans ramp up. With some headphones plugged in, this becomes a non issue for the user.

TLDR: If you want a small powerhouse for gaming and a portable workstation, look no further. The pros outweigh the cons by a significant margin.

EDIT: Started to notice that the Gigabyte motherboard drivers (Wifi and Backlight most notability) load incredibly slow after boot. After booting into the windows login screen it takes at least 30-60s for those to load. This should not be happening in this caliber of laptop. I have issued a refund because of this major issue and other minor issues.
