Thin Aorus X7 has impressive hardware
Considering how down sales are in the computer market for consumer machines, it might seem like a bad time to launch a new line of gaming-oriented notebook computers for Gigabyte. That hasn’t stopped the company from doing just that with the announcement of the Aorus X7 gaming notebook.
This machine is very thin considering the powerful hardware it has inside. The X7 measures 392mm W x 263mm D x 22.9mm H and weighs 2.9kg with the battery installed. The processor running the show is a fourth generation Intel Core i7-4700HQ operating at 2.4GHz to 3.4GHz.
That processor is paired with either 4GB or 8GB of DDR3L 1600 RAM, but the machine supports up to 32GB max. The notebook uses an Intel HM87 Express chipset and graphics are handled by dual NVIDIA GTX 765M graphics cards with 4GB of GDDR5 RAM. The screen is 17.3-inches and has a native resolution of 1920x1080.
The machine supports a triple storage system: it has two slots for mSATA drives with 128GB or 256GB available, and it also has a single slot for a 2.5-inch HDD up to 1TB in capacity. Other features include a backlit keyboard, a Killer LAN chip, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. The backlit keyboard also has anti-ghosting tech and dedicated macro buttons that gamers will appreciate. In addition, it includes dual HDMI outputs, a mini DisplayPort, and a VGA output.
The machine will reportedly start at $2,099, with availability beginning in March.

Of course it does, and dust can certainly get pulled in. The previous poster seems to think that makes it dust proof or has any advantage over laptops that pull from the bottom.
