Gigabyte AERO 15 2019 review

The new Aero 2019 model comes with either a 60 Hz. OLED display or a 240Hz. IPS one and it has from a GTX 1660 Ti up to an RTX 2080 Max Q and either an I7-9750H CPU or an I9-9980HK CPU .

The newer model has a completely newer design from the previous one with a 30% Better Cooling system with more heat vents and Heat pipes so it can now reach the full 4Ghz. all core turbo speed on the I7-9750H CPU .

Although those are very good specs but you can find them in a lot of other laptops what makes the AERO special is IT’S BATTERY LIFE as it has a 94Wh battery which is almost the biggest battery you can find in a laptop giving a 6.5 Hrs. of video playback so it should be more than enough for a day at school especially it only weighs 4.4 lbs with CNC Crafted Precisely Refined and Durable body of compressed aluminum .

The AERO also offers a great fan control with one of the fastest SD card reader you can find on a laptop that with the Amazing OLED display makes it a great choice for content creation however if you are more into gaming I would recommend the 240Hz. IPS display for a great first shooter gaming experience .

Now for the down sides as although it has a thunderbolt 3 port you can’t charge the laptop through it and it doesn’t have a place for an HDD .

Acer Predator Helios 300 2019 model review

The Acer Predator Helios 300 has one of the best price for performance ratio in the laptop world in 2019 so let’s find out why :-

The specs

  • A beautiful 15.6″ 144Hz Refresh Rate, 3ms Overdrive Response Time, 300nit Brightness & 72% NTSC display .
  • A 9Th gen intel I7-9750H Hexa core CPU .
  • A GTX 1660Ti 6GB GPU .
  • 16GB DDR4 dual channel RAM .
  • 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD with another slot available .
  • One Available Hard Drive Bay with the mounting bracket included .

Those specs are very hard to find in this price range especially when you know that the laptop is made of an all metal body except the bottom for better heat control and speaking of that, the laptop does a fantastic job of keeping the cpu cool it comes undervolted out of the box and with a little tweaking you can get the full 4.0GHz all core turbo speed and it can get almost 3000 in cinebench R20 test and here is a table with some other tests result

19003350330013800

All with CPU temp under 90 degree c so no thermal or power throttling

As for the GPU I think that the GTX 1660 Ti provides a great performance for its price, it’s a decent upgrade from the GTX 1060 and it’s around only 10% less than the RTX 2060 and with turbo boost (overclock) provided by a click of a button on the Helios 300 it even beats some of the RTX 2060 laptop’s in some games

Now for the down side of things :

The battery life is around 4 Hrs. of normal use which might not be enough for a day on the school (for a longer battery life with the same specs I would recommend either the Aero 15 or the MSI GS65 ) plus the laptop isn’t that light at 5.07 Lbs. although that’s a very decent weight for a laptop with those specs and lastly it lacks a thunderbolt 3 port and an sd card reader .

Finally here is a table of some of the available GTX 1660 Ti laptop’s to give you an idea of how it compare in price with the other laptops with he same specs :
