This Gigabyte Aero 15 laptop is a 4K OLED display. In fact, this is a bit unfair, because this is a full-featured laptop that performs well in many ways, but this screen is particularly suitable for anyone engaged in creative work, especially in photos and videos. Now it is ridiculous $1,249.99 at Best Buy.
If you need a colorful, high-resolution display in a compact laptop, and you can also use it for games, then this is definitely a laptop worth considering. If you want to save some cash this Black Friday season, so much the better.
Its 15.6-inch display has a native resolution of 3840×2160, and the pixel pitch is narrower than most desktop monitors. It is also calibrated out of the box, and Gigabyte claims it is the most accurate color monitor on the market.
The rest of the specification supports this creative angle. The powerful Intel Core i7 11800 leads the serious side, which is an eight-core 16-thread chip that can be upgraded to 4.6GHz. You can also get 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage space. Creative applications tend to prefer more memory, but you can upgrade it after the fact.
If that gorgeous screen has shortcomings, it is a big requirement to let the RTX 3060 play games at this resolution. This is not entirely impossible, especially if you are playing a game that supports DLSS 2.0, but in most cases, playing the game at a resolution lower than the native resolution may be a viable method. Either get used to organizing the settings in the game, or let GeForce Experience do the heavy lifting for you.
In general, this is a high-quality laptop that can save a lot of money now. If you need a high-quality screen for creative work, but want to be able to play it from time to time, then this seems almost a perfect proposal.
