Gigabyte’s latest range of notebooks – the AORUS and AERO, offer unmatched performance. Gigabyte offer gamers bigger, better and more immersive experiences that blur the lines between desktop and laptop gaming.
Best known for the manufacturing of laptops, desktop computers and graphics cards amongst the general consumer. Gigabyte remains as one of the world’s leading manufacturers producing cutting edge computer hardware and peripherals.
More consumers, and businesses are now demanding mobility, performance, premium design and build-quality, but in the past these users were almost “forced” to look within the Gaming segment for products capable of delivering what they needed. Gigabyte was the first to identify this niche and brought the AERO to market. The first true performance notebook in a thin chassis with genuine “all day computing” capability. With a classic minimalist design, AERO has been praised and awarded over the last 3 years and continues to be a leading product in this new segment targeted at the “Content Creator” market. Introducing features such as AMOLED Screens and HDR Screens all of which are individually calibrated by Pantone X-rite equipment in the factory, Gigabyte is delivering a compelling alternative to tempt Creators away from their regular brand.
GAMERS ON THE GO
Gaming and PC gaming, in particular, is facing dramatic growth thanks to eSports, YouTube and Twitch streaming. This has resulted in an increased demand for the latest and greatest hardware which is ever pushing the bounds of technology. Although gaming desktop computers are extremely powerful and generally cheaper than their mobile counterparts they do take up considerably more room, which for those on the go is at a premium. This has resulted in the need for more compact, portable solutions that can be used almost anywhere.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GAMING LAPTOP AND A DESKTOP PC?
There are a variety of differences between the 2 formats, although operationally they are very similar. Both contain similar core components, utilise a keyboard, mouse and screen plus run an operating system (OS) such as Microsoft Windows. Let’s delve a little deeper and take a look into the differences and benefits of owning a gaming laptop.
The most immediate difference is portability. Gaming laptops are considerably lighter and far more compact. They can literally be taken wherever you go and are the perfect College and University companion allowing you to game or complete assignments. In addition to this, they are ideal for those who love to attend LAN events – no more hauling a heavy computer!
Gaming laptops contain a powerful on-board battery which means they can be used for hours at a time without being plugged in. Not only does this go hand in hand with portability but also means you can game on the go without being tethered to a plug.
Laptops in general consume substantially less energy than a desktop so are much ‘greener’ and even save your electricity bill. Gaming laptops are additionally manufactured using far less materials than your typical gaming desktop so yet again you’re doing your bit for the planet.
Gigabyte is one of the elite manufacturers pioneering the field of mobile gaming, packing in desktop-level performance into a footprint no bigger than a couple of books. At one time, this was almost impossible but thanks to constant innovations, manufacturers have pushed the bounds of possibility. Compromising on performance due to form factor is now a thing of the past.
