Gigabyte just took a massive $1,000 off its Aero 15 laptop with an RTX 3080 and 11th gen Intel Core i7 — taking the price down to just $1,999 after a rebate. 

Whether you’re a creative pro looking for some extra power on those GPU-intensive projects or a gamer looking for an enthusiast-level rig you can play on the go or at home, this is an amazing option.

This configuration of Gigabyte’s creator-centric Aero 15 features a 4K display up top, 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, RTX 3080 GPU, 16GB RAM and a 1TB SSD. That is a whole lot of power for an impressive price.

OK, so this is not technically a gaming laptop. The 4K AMOLED IPS panel is absolutely gorgeous, but it has a 60Hz refresh rate. If that’s going to be a problem and you need something more buttery smooth, this deal isn’t for you.

For the rest of you, though, this is the cheapest way to get a laptop with the most powerful GPU on the planet! That extra horsepower makes it the best portable rig for intense creative tasks like movie editing or even 3D animation.

But just because it’s made for creators doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a spot of 4K gaming at lightning-fast 60 fps framerates. Seriously, the capability of this stands up to even the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. It’s that good.

And all of this power is packed into a sleek, stylish chassis with 9 I/O ports including Thunderbolt 4, patented WindForce cooling tech for thermal performance and (because it’s worth mentioning again) a shockingly low price tag for the performance.
