    I have no problems with keeping on my lap as long as it's not about gaming.

    Same temps and somehow more unstable framerate...
    I think there are some issues with Forza games and Optimus. Even though the game is using the GTX 1060, it is somehow affected by the Intel IGP's presence.

    Looks like HDMI is managed differently, 100% by Nvidia (more settings in the control panel)

    I'd wish they would put a 1070MQ in this and make my decision done. I really want a machine for VR and the 1060 just won't cut it.

    Hey guys, need help asap. I bought my aero 15 about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it. This problem started about a week ago, my keyboard backlighting started to glitch out so I reinstalled gigabyte fusion and it seemed to have fix it but then as the week progressed something very unusual started happening, the f3, 3, E, X and the LAlt keys had their blue backlight ON even though the keyboard backlighting was set to be turned off so once again I reinstalled gigabyte fusion but this time the problem persisted, so left this for a week and then the blue LED in the D key stopped working all together so I reinstalled all the drivers but the problem still persists. Any help/ diagnosis would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Has gigabyte addressed the tb3 speed thing? If so did they say it's working as intended or if there's a fix rolling out? If it is "working as intended" will I be able to hook the aero 15 to an egpu?

    I saw a user here say a rep replied that gigabyte won't be rolling out fixed keyboards to everybody because the keyboard was never advertised as antighosting. This is utterly absurd. I want to email their rep and ask what else about the components it uses aren't advertised as faulty.

    At the very least, they should update their website for the aero 15, list their keyboards for having ghosting problems. That way people are aware, and then they can say it's working as advertised. I had to rma my unit and currently have the luxury of going to another brand. Really want the 4k variant but Gb needs to address these problems.

    I asked a tech. support agent about the reported underperformance of TB3 on the Aero 15, and this was his reply:

    Doesn't instill much confidence, does it?
