Aorus is a sub-brand of Gigabyte, which focuses on the high-end mobile gaming market. Its new Aorus X3 Plus, first presented at Computex 2014 suitable conveys that premium feel.
Under the hood, you'll find a Core i7 processor, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 870M, two 512 GB M.2 SSDs in RAID 0, and plenty of system memory. The chassis is comfortable, and the touchpad is surprisingly well-built. The pièce de résistance is a 13.9-inch display with a resolution of 3200x1800.
All of those specs are available from other laptops, though not in a package less than an inch thick and 4.12 pounds in weight. For that reason, we give this notebook one of the Best of Computex 2014 awards. Pricing is a bit steep, starting at $2229, though you do get something truly special for your money.
