I would recommend this [Gigabyte Aero configuration] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MY2YYKB/ref=as_li_ss_tl?_encoding=UTF8&th=1&linkCode=ll1&tag=bkadamos_alltest-20&linkId=8f4320860f5342108b9c9cbc07fddd91) because it comes with everything you need, 7th generation, i7 quad core CPU which is one of the best in the market and great for your usage, 16GB of ram for smooth multitasking, good SSD storage of 512GB for faster boot up and loading, 14 inch QHD IPS anti-glare screen which is a must have for this price range, high build quality, long battery life, and it is within your budget.

Help me make a decision for my needs. I'm getting stressed trying to decide between a non Apple set up or Apple set up.

Then the best two options are the Aero 14 and the Aero 15 light , powerful, long battery life, if you want more details you can find a more detailed review of it and comparison between other options here.

Any pointers to a decently powerful and portable laptop? $1,100USD, No Bigger than 14-inches

Posted on: August 4, 2017 by LonerIM2

Still over budget but what about this aero ? 14 inch, 512 GB SSD and 1060 GPU plus it also comes with great battery life, could be worth it if you are a hardcore gamer, or if you don’t need long battery life there is also this MSI with similar great specs for gaming and smaller screen.

If you take Rainbow Six out of the equation and need powerful CPU then you can go with this acer swift 5 it comes 8 gb ram, 256 ssd, dual core 7th gen i7, 14 inch full HD IPS screen, light weight, long battery life, and HD 620 iGPU which should be powerful enough for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

For engineering applications such as CAD and Solidworks, it takes a laptop with similar specs of a gaming laptop. You will definitely need a powerful processor preferably an i7 quad core , above 8 GB RAM (16 GB is nice), a fast storage and a solid dedicated graphics card.

Video editing requirements

For video editing, you need a quad core preferably i7 processor, 16 GB RAM is recommended or even more if you plan on editing intensively,4k videos. You will also need a solid dedicated graphics card and a Solid state drive is definitely recommended for the sake of speed.

The witcher is also quite intensive, so you will need a very good graphics card…

Based on your weight limit and resolution criteria the best laptop that comes to mind that will fit your needs is the Aero 14.

In your budget range and due to the fact that you will want some decent performance power, light weight and good build quality, this **Gigabyte Aero 14Wv7-BK4 14″ Notebook** would be your best pick and an excellent pick at that. It has :

* Powerful and new 7th Gen Intel Kabylake i7-7700HQ quad core processor.

* Powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GDDR5 6GB dedicated graphics card.

* 16GB DDR4 RAM

* Fast M.2 SATA 512 GB SSD

* Beautiful 14″ QHD IPS 2560×1440 Wide Viewing Angle anti-glare display.

to get performance in a thin and light laptop I would suggest the **Gigabyte Aero 14Wv7-BK4** This is a powerful and light laptop with a great build quality. It has the processor to manage the programs you want easily and it has a nice display and a good keyboard. The laptop will last you through college as the build quality is good.

*14″ Notebook QHD IPS
* 7th Gen Intel Kabylake i7-7700HQ
* NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GDDR5 6GB VRAM
* DDR4 2400 16Gx1 RAM
* M.2 SATA 512GB SSD HDD

The screen is smaller than what you wanted but the lager screens and similar power like the **Gigabyte P55Wv7-KL3** is a bit heavier but still good (and cheaper as well)

Can you push your budget a little and get this aero it is an all around perfect laptop, because it comes with everything you need , i7 quad core CPU which is one of the best in the market and great for your usage, 16GB of ram for smooth multitasking, Good SSD storage of 512GB for faster boot up and loading, high quality IPS screen which is a must have for this price range, high build quality, very good heat management, long battery life, 1060 GPU that should be able to handle most modern games on medium to high settings with very good FPs, and it is not too much over your budget.

Once we talk about video editng, I would definitely recommend a quad core processor preferably an i7, above 8 GB RAM, a dedicated graphics card and an SSD helps very much. The 2 in 1 will limit you on performance though. This **Gigabyte Aero 14Wv7-BK4 14″ Notebook** would do a very good job for you in terms of performance in demanding tasks such as video editing..It also has a very good battery life, solid metal chassis, and great display quality that is craved by graphic designers. The only downfall here is that while it has a very solid keyboard, because of the laptop’s 14 inches form, it doesn’t have the number pad. You can also look into this Dell XPS9560-7001SLV-PUS

US College Student looking for great laptop around $1500

Posted on: June 20, 2017 by Michiganders

If you can expand your budget a bit, I think your best option would be the Gigabyte Aero 14 for $1700. It doesn’t have an optical drive, but you can buy a USB optical drive separately for ~$15 which should work fine. It has some of the best specs you’ll find on a thin and light on the market. It comes with a kaby lake i7 procesor, 16gb of ram, 512gb SSD and a GTX 1060 dGPU. It would work extremely well for gaming, and any intense programs you find yourself using. It also has a 1440p IPS display, a long battery life, and weighs in at just 4.2 lbs.

If you want something a bit cheaper, look into the Asus FX502. It’s on the lighter side at 4.9 lbs.

If you don’t think you’ll need as much power, also look into the ASUS P-Series 14” for $1000 which is also an excellent option. Honestly I think this would be your best bet if you aren’t comfortable pushing your budget to $1700 for the Aero 14. It’ll still work fine for your gaming needs (as they aren’t too demanding), has an amazing battery life, decent specs, and weighs just 4.3 lbs.

For more suggestions or a better idea of what to look for, maybe look through my comprehensive list here.

An Ultrabook or similar with dedicated graphics?

Posted on: June 19, 2017 by LonerIM2

If you can do without the touchscreen and that 2-in one feature, it make this **Gigabyte Aero 14Wv7-BK4 14** and even the **Aero 15** two great contenders as they have the build quality, battery life and definitely the performance you are looking for…Both come with the powerful 7th Gen Intel Kabylake i7-7700HQ quad core processor, 16 GB RAM, fast SSD and the powerful GTX 1060 Graphics card that puts it above the XPS 15. The Spectre x360 wont do well in gaming and the HP Omen has a poor build quality. If you really want the touch screen and a decent gaming performance though, the best balance would be this **XPS 9560-7369SLV-PUS** with the touch screen, quad core 7th gen i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, fast SSD and the GTX 1050 graphics card which will do well for you based on what you want. It also has a very good battery life, nice build quality, great display.

If that is too much for your budget then this would be your second best option.

I think your best option if you are looking for something portable would be the Gigabyte Aero 14 for $1700. This is because it has a good balance of battery, specs, and portability. It has probably the best battery life of a gaming laptop, lasting up to 10 hrs of light use. It also has a quad core i7-700HQ processor, 16gb of ram, 512gb SSD and GTX 1060 dGPU.

Other options are the Razer Blade for $1900 which has similar specs. There are much more reviews of it on the internet though.

The Dell XPS 15 and Acer V15 Nitro are also 2 very good options if you are looking for a 15”. Not quite as portable, but they would also work well for you.

13-15inch, USA, <$2600 light gaming/everyday and work laptop/hybrid

Posted on: May 26, 2017 by Michiganders

If you think you want a bit more power, I think you should look above 13” and look for something like the Dell XPS 15 9560 which you can find at various prices. It works well for light and moderate gaming with a GTX 1050 dGPU, and it’s pretty light at 4.0 lbs and has a pretty long battery life. It’s also well built, has a great display, and is one of the top reviewed windows laptops on the market.

Otherwise, maybe look into the Gigabyte Aero 14 for $1700. It’s a 14.0” laptop that comes with a GTX 1060 dGPU which is much more powerful than the 1050 and can play pretty much any game on the market. It’s also pretty lightweight and thin, and has a very long battery life given it’s powerful dGPU. You can also look into the Razer Blade as you mentioned, but you may want to cover up the logo on the back.

If you are looking for something smaller, maybe look into the Surface Book. It will be at the top of your price range if you want a dedicated GPU though, as models with a 965M are $2000+. You could also wait to see if Dell updates the XPS 13 with Iris graphics which should allow for light / moderate gaming.

If you want more gaming power you can get a 1070, or even a 1080 GPU which is way more powerful (too powerful for just those two games though).

Dell XPS 13 w/ Touchscreen or Apple MacBook Pro w/ TouchBar

Posted on: May 18, 2017 by starchaserro

Hi,

Here is a side by side comparison of the two: https://noteb.com/?model/comp.php?&conf0=11557195982175000576&conf1=7926230678950508255

To be honest, none of them will be very good in gaming, although the Mac may actually fair a bit better. Not sure how your friends are gaming on the XPS 13.

You should also consider the Gigabyte Aero 14 which will run circles around the Mac and XPS in every way, but it’s more expensive at $1700.

Posted on: April 29, 2017 by Michiganders

Your best option is probably the Gigabyte Aero 14 for $1700. It comes with a GTX 1060 dGPU which should work really well for some high end gaming. It also has a pretty sleek look, good specs, and a massive 94Wh battery which should last 6-8 hours of light use (the legal max a battery can be is 99Wh). It also weighs in at 4.19 lbs.

If you’re looking for something cheaper, maybe look into an entry level Dell XPS 15 9560. You can find models for $1000-$1200 and it comes with a GTX 1050 dGPU. Maybe also look into the HP pavilion 15 for $980 which is pretty sleek looking.
