Computex 2016 - GIGABYTE has revealed its new Aero 14 laptop, a slim notebook that merges the utility and performance of an Ultrabook with the explosive, high-octane precision of a gaming rig. With the Aero 14, consumers no longer have to sacrifice performance for mobility.

Although GIGABYTE's new Aero 14 is just 19.9mm thick, it packs a serious hardware punch. The Aero 14 rocks a 14" QHD IPS display at 2560 x 1440 resolution, and is powered by a discrete GeForce GTX 970M under the hood for higher-end notebook gaming. An Intel quad-core i7 H-series CPU alongside up to 32GB of DDR4-2133MHz RAM (2x 16GB modules) ensures optimum Ultrabook-level performance. Two onboard M.2 SSDs provides blazing fast bootups and data transfer rates. The Aero 14 can also output video on up to two 4K displays at up to 60Hz via HDMI 2.0 and Mini-DisplayPort.

When outfitted with higher-end components like these, Ultrabooks tend to trade off performance for battery life. GIGABYTE promises users won't have to worry about battery life with the portable Aero 14--the laptop sports a massive 94.24Wh battery that will last up to an entire day when running "resource-demanding applications."
