Great looks, all Matte
Solid build, serious quality
GLOBAL 2 year warrenty!!
Slim power brick
The list goes on...simply amazing laptop!
Cons: Actually, one con:
I wish the trackpad had separate, physical buttons. Minor. Still amazing.
Other Thoughts: Looks even better in person- all clean, matte surfaces, no glossy junk. The screen is fantastic as well, matches perfectly. Build is solid, sleek, surprisingly light. I was worried this wouldn't live up to Razer Blade levels, but it might actually surpass, certainly matches.
I had also worried the 15.6" size would be too large for me (vs 14"), but it's actually just fine, incredibly thin and light as well. If you are worried about moving up to this size, take another look- I'm quite happy with it.
The swappable ODD/HDD/SSD slot is a great feature! Will be swapping that CD drive out right away, for an extra HDD or SSD. Love it.
I will be traveling around the globe for several years, doing game dev on-the-go, so the 2 year global warranty was a MAJOR plus. Obviously, the serious power and slim size, as well. I did purchase a 2 year ADH warranty just in case, also.
Will update this review if anything changes, so happy with it already, I had to write a review within an hour of opening the box. Simply astounding how well Gigabyte has pulled this off!
Honestly, I can't find a single con yet. This laptop is the first to completely exceed all expectations, and ZERO compromises for me. So glad I bought this, instead of the Blade (the Blade is a great laptop, but just one SSD drive? Sorry, I need more!)
Now time to install some games and give it a test!
Pros: Simple, solid PSU.
Cons: Wish it had lasted a few years longer. 5 years, for a PSU only lightly used, seems to indicate poor parts/manufacturing.READ FULL REVIEW
