    1. If you wanna re-install the OS, do remember to install the Smart Update & Smart Manager to get your calibrated .icc profile back
    2. even though it's the 1050 Ti model but I guess somebody will suggest you to re-paste the thermal grease

    Thanks , I read that some are undervolting to get better thermals but from what I have read it's pretty cool anyway. I won't be gaming 24/7 on this. Just Netflix, web browsing and some minor gaming once in a while. The big sell for me was the screen and the huge battery. My two main criteria.

    I understand.

    At this point, does Gigabyte / Aorus have any plans to refresh the Aorus X3?

    Or, alternatively, to make an Aero 14 with thin bezels?

    We're now planning on the new AERO 14 but it's still in early stage of development

    I bought the Aero 14 v8 couple days ago.

    In general I would say this is a really good laptop.
    + Good display, could be brighter, but excellent resolution and color.
    + I love the keyboard.
    + Is absolutely quite with browser and windows. (need to set quite fan profile)
    + small and lightweight, great chassis quality
    - Loud and very hot (quickly 91 degrees) within 1 minute video rendering.
    - only single channel ram used. I know it might be easier to upgrade to 32 GB with just another 16GB, but it is a bottle neck to just have one ram installed.
    - Battery Life is not as good as I hoped. Better than other gaming laptops yes, but when not using the GPU other regular business laptops are better.

    There are some more annoyances I want to mention and the Gigabyte support is not really helpful.
    - The "Smart Manager" looses its ability to set performance and fan control and ability to show fan speed and network speed. Only a reinstallation from the smart manager helps. Both software versions are affected.
    - I added a second m2 ssd but it does not get recognized (I am still checking with another ssd and an external drive)
    - There was a Bios update today or yesterday but they don't show the old one on the website anymore and there is no changelog whatsoever for any of the downloads
