I am really enjoying this laptop. I’ve had issues with other brands in the $3600-4200 price ranges prior to finally getting this one. It has pretty much the top specs in a laptop in this price range. I do a lot of 4K video editing and some data analytics for my company. This computer does it all! The Windows 11 Pro works great and the extra ports youre able to add to this is also a neat idea. The picture is beautful. I really enjoy this computer.
While I did not buy my AERO 17" from best buy (they only had last years model available at the time) I am very happy with my purchase. The 17" has mini-led instead of OLED, meaning it is slightly less power hungry.
The one thing which you will find if you do get one is that Gigabyte got aggressive on two fronts. One, they minimized the ports. This is easily accomodated, and they did provide a small hub for anything other than Thunderbolt 4 ports (there are two thunderbolt 4 ports and one USB-C on the body). Second is they really got aggressive with cooling, which from a good point minimizes the throttling of the system, but at the cost of fan noise if the unit gets hot (and it can get hot under a load). The fan noise can be controlled by putting on one of the more silent modes, but that compromises cooling. Just keep potential fan noise in mind. It doesnt bother me at all.

Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
I bought 2 of these laptops, thinking that even though they are pricey, they would be well worth it. Well, both of the laptops started acting up after I installed the Windows updates. The computers power on, the face id camera flashes, but then the screen stays blank. And no matter what I press, how many times I reboot, the screen only returns about 25% of the time. Ridiculous for $4K brand new computers. I am returning to the store.
