If Gigabyte wasn’t already satisfied with one of the best Black Friday gaming laptop deals (opens in new tab) already on the go with the 17-inch version of the same laptop, the smaller Gigabyte Auros 15 XE4 is $1,000 off (opens in new tab) now as well. While not quite as OP as its PC counterpart, the RTX 3080-powered Auros Model X (opens in new tab) desktop PC, this Auros 15 XE4 comes with an RTX 3070 Ti, an Intel Core i7-12700H processor, 16 GB of DDR5 RAM and a chunky 1 TB SSD, all for the cool price of $1,299. Now that’s a bargain!
While the 3070 Ti is technically the last generation now, you’d be crazy to think you’re missing out – that’s a powerful GPU you’ve got there. Combine that with the fantastic 12th Gen Intel Core i7 12700H and it will run smoothly and handle demanding games. It’ll even do well at productivity tasks should you decide to use this laptop for something other than gaming, like having 14 windows open with 50 tabs each (accurate description from Lauren right now – Ed).
It also comes with Windforce Infinity, all-copper cooling technology, so it stays cool during all this power nonsense.
The Auros 15 XE4 comes with a 15.6-inch QHD display with a tasty 165Hz refresh rate and 72% NTSC, so there’s absolutely no compromise with this beast of a laptop. The AI EyeCare technology automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen in different lighting scenarios, so your little ones can rest when they need to.
The best part? It has a backlit RGB keyboard that I know everyone loves as much as I do. If you really want to enjoy ray tracing on the go, then this is definitely the laptop you want to get your hands on.
