    While the decision to take so long after launch to fix this issue is disappointing, it's good to see real fixes being released. Now if they could just nail down the keyboard issues...

    everyone is wishing for the keyboard to be fixed and i am just here hoping they will simply allow to charge external devices through USB when the computer is turned off (the TB fix, is confirmed is of course really great news) :)

    For anyone who is interested, I've got bad news from my most recent call to GB: according to a customer service agent, the 4k model will not be released in the US market until further notice. I tried to speak with someone in sales to get more information, but I couldn't reach anyone. From what we heard, the 4k model had originally been delayed because of a new keyboard design, but I kind of doubt they'd pull the product like this if it were just the keyboard. I'm guessing/hoping it's because they're deciding to rework/redesign for a 1070mq, but again, I couldn't confirm anything with a sales representative. Until I hear it from sales, take this with a grain of salt.

    Thanks for the update! Looks like someone at Gigabyte was listening. Glad they did the right thing here. They could just have easily have remained "not aware" of the problem.

    @Denjin, sorry, but it looks like you sending your notebook back for RMA was indeed a waste of time as they potentially fixed it with a bios update. Hopefully when you get it back you can confirm if you are indeed getting full performance with your eGPU setup.

    Now I can go back to recommending the Aero 15 to people. Before when I did, it always came with the disclaimer that TB3 doesn't work at full speeds, and may never. I'm glad to be able to recommend this laptop again with confidence (keyboard issue gets mentioned of course).

    Has anyone gotten a skin on their Aero 15 yet? If so, where did you get it? Thanks

    As far as major skin retailers, no one has reported finding one yet. One person found one in a store in Taiwan, and another person made their own. The one who made their own was just a few pages back, maybe you could ask them for details.

    I ordered like a week and a half ago with newegg premier, free 3 day shipping. I wasn't home and I just got the laptop. The main 2 problems you want to check for is keyboard ghosting and backlight bleed. I have been tweaking my brightness settings and other things to try and improve mine. I will post before and after pictures soon.

    Hey guys. How's it going? I bought the Aero 15 about 2 weeks ago and so far it's an excellent laptop, except for a problem I seem to be having. At the moment, I can't connect a 2nd display to my MiniDP port. The HDMI port works fine, however I've had no luck whatsoever with the MiniDP port.

    Anyone have a similar problem? Is there a fix, or do I need to submit a warranty claim? I have updated to all latest drivers (downloading the new BIOS update as I type this) and have mucked around with different display driver versions/cables/converters without any luck.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I currently have 3 monitors working great. Nixeus 144Hz via MiniDP. Dell via HDMI, Dell via USB dock.

    DP/MiniDP cables can be finicky, fwiw
