    Interesting, as I've had the opposite experience. Having had the gigabyte for about 2 months now, going back to my old macbook pro keyboard feels very mushy and imprecise in comparison. I agree about the layout, though. It does take some getting used to, especially the placement of the arrow keys and its surrounding keys.

    Hi guys.

    I'm trying to decide between the Aorus X3+v7 and the Aero 14.

    Apart from the (obvious) screen differences, are there any opinions on the pros/cons of these two models compared to one another?

    Thanks,
    P.

    Hey guys,

    I have a problem. Recently I discovered within the last 3 days that after sleep mode (min 6 hours) I get a Bluescreen of Death (BSoD) in the next 10 mins. The BSoD has the Failure Code Error: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.

    Anyone made the same experience and knows how to solve this?

    I was having this same failure. I changed some power management settings and it resolved it.

    Search for my name in this thread, someone pointed me in the right direction. But I don't remember exactly what I did.

    Replying to my own post ... The repair quote came back at over £1300 plus VAT. And for that kind of money I could buy a new one and sell the old one for parts (I know the memory and Nvme card still work). Any advice on whether there are now better laptops than the Aero 14. I'm not swayed by the Aero 15. Appreciate any advice before I push the button .... again!

    Perhaps take a look at the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501. 15.6" form factor but *very* thin and light. Runs a 1080 MQ - which is sort of a downclocked 1080 that runs between a 1070 and 1080.

    It has a great performance and it runs very quiet. Its just that the battery life is nothing compared to Aero.
    In addition to the laptop above, take a look at this one. ZenBook UX550VE

    I know it would be a noticeable downgrade in performance but you are still getting thin and light aluminum build with large battery and 1050 TI with good display.
    I don't think it is released yet but it is scheduled to arrive some time during the Summer 2017 (so soon!)

    I think i solved it.
    I changed in Nvidia settings from Optimal Power to Adaptiv and in Smart Manager => USB Charge => both on off.
    Haven't had a BSoD yet.

    Another question: in Windows energy settings, did someone managed to change the PCI Express Sittings? Everytime i change them and restart, the restore to "standard".

    Has anyone tried the FB09/F006 BIOS update that comes up on Smart Update?
    Is there some sort of changelog outlying what was updated from FB07/F004?
