The Gigabyte Aorus 15P is stealthy for a 15-inch gaming laptop with solid performance, but its speakers and display could be better.
With the power of a top-end gaming laptop comes the requirement to keep it cool. That’s why so many of the best gaming laptops are thick. The Gigabyte Aorus 15P ($2,399 as tested) is slightly slimmer than much of its competition, giving it a sleek, stealthy look. That’s not to any huge detriment in terms of performance, though the situation is not all rosy.
For instance, the display could be a bit more vivid, and the speakers are a bit quiet. The latter might potentially be better in a thicker design, but that would give up the biggest advantage here. While the Aorus 15P is a slim gaming notebook (relatively, anyway), you’ll have to decide if that makes up for other small flaws.
