The box isn't too fancy but does feature a picture of the notebook. The notebook is secured by two large foam pieces, and there are two smaller boxes which hold accessories and manuals.
Accessories include AC/DC power supply and cables, ODD bay dummy/holder, manuals, and DVDs with software and drivers.
The ODD Blu-ray drive can be replaced by an ODD bay insert, which can be populated with a 2.5" SATA SSD or HDD for extra storage. The power adapter is a beast at 200W (19.5v @10.3A).
The top of the unit is constructed with a single piece of black anodized aluminum. It is very sleek and smooth, but vulnerable to scratches and fingerprints, so you should get a soft cover protective sleeve for the device. The bottom of the device features four rubber feet and a series of air intake vents to feed clean, cool fresh air to the dual blower fans.
The front of the device is where the Blu-ray drive and two speakers are located. The rear features dual slotted exhausts; it's a style I have come to like because it resembles the exhaust of a sports car. On the right side of the device, there is a 19v DC jack, D-SUB (VGA), HDMI 2.0 w/HDCP, USB 3.1 type-C, fast charge USB 3.0 port, and mini DisplayPort. On the left side, there is a Kensington lock slot, RJ-45 LAN, two USB 3.0 ports, SD card slot, headphone jack, and microphone jack.
The notebook has an amazing 4K Ultra HD screen, and it's also an IPS monitor, so it can be viewed from multiple angles. The brightness and overall colors are brilliant, and the screen does not have a glossy finish, so there is no glare.
The camera module is centered on the screen next to a light sensor; there are also two microphones on either side of the camera. As you can see, the picture quality is decent for the web.
The keyboard is full-size and backlit. The keys are "scissor-based" and the macro hub uses a rubber dome design. GIGABYTE claims the switches offer better key traveling and feedback. GIGABYTE includes software for programming the Macro keys.
