Gigabyte recently introduced the Aero 15 OLED laptop, the newest model in a series of high-end laptops designed for photographers. It joins the rest of the Aero 15 laptop-series, adding a new Ultra-HD 4K AMOLED display in a ultra-thin bezel measuring a mere 3mm think. This display is Pantone Certified by X-Rite due to its high color-accuracy and 100% DCI-P3 gamut. AMOLED technology is VESA DisplayHDF 400 compliant which also guarantees a wide dynamic-range.
The Aero 15 and its new OLED variant are available with a powerful 9th-Generation Intel Core i9 or i7 H-series processor and NVidia GeFrorce RTX 20 or GTX 16 dedicated graphics chip. This combination of high-accuracy display and powerful graphics make these laptops very well suited for photographers. The Aero 15 provides a superior experience due to its Sharp IGZO 240Hz panel which has an anti-glare coating, making it much easier to perceive nuances in tonalities. The Aero 15 series is kept cool using two fans, five heat pipes and 11 vents to improve heat-dissipation by 30% over previous models.
Both these laptops are only 2cm (0.8″) thick and 36 by 25cm wide (14″ x 10″) while offering a 15.6″ screen. They offer a built-in SDXC UHS-II memory-card reader to directly read the most common memory-card currently in use by digital cameras. There are 3 USB 3.1 Type A ports plus dual-purpose DisplayPort 1.4 and USB 3.1 Type-C ports. These laptops are sufficiently thick for directly hosting a Gigabit RJ45 port. A 94Wh battery gives these powerhouses an 8.5h battery-life. The back-illuminated keyboards are not spillproof but a compatible keyboard skin is available for an additional $15 USD.
The Aero 15 and Aero 15 OLED come in six of configurations shown here with a starting price of $1700 USD.
