If your need for a laptop comes down to surfing the web, whether on e-commerce or information sites, and to making a few tables in excel, you could be satisfied with this Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P. This Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. Gigabyte is a manufacturer that has been offering laptops for several years now, but for this laptop they have used lower quality components. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 15.6 inches size. Even if it is not equipped with a touch screen, this model is still easy to use. A point that could be impeding, for some users,with this Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P if you have to work on the road.
Nevertheless, it remains a quality product with an easy to use trackpad. Logically, the treatment given to this product by Gigabyte suggests that you will be able to use it for many years to come.
The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Core i7 8750H; A mid-range orientation. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. So certainly, with this laptop you have enough resources for internet surfing and word processing, but you may have to change it in less than 5 years. With less than a 512 Gb of RAM, it Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P is a fair one. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. Your computer will work better and longer.
The disk size of this laptop is among the smallest on the market. If you want to have your holiday photos locally, you’ll soon reach the limit of 512 Gb. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
Last point about the autonomy. the Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P can work 7 hours in wifi mode only activated by the batteries. This is lower than what you can find in its competitors for the same price range. Not as good as what you can get on competing products, and that’s a pity, because in the end the laptop is pleasant to use.
Is Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P one for watching movies and listening to music ?
Gigabyte presents this laptop as a standard product dedicated to a low-resource usage. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
Equipped with a small screen size, 15.6 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. The colours are faithful, warm enough, and the contrasts allow a high level of detail. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 2 kilogram.
Glossy screens are best suited to the indoor environment. Enhanced contrast, sharpness and color brightness are the main benefits you will get from this Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P. Also note that potentially this screen will be more stressful to the eyes, after 2-3 hours of use in a row.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Core i7 8750H, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
You will do what you want for the applications, as it is not Gigabyte installed by default. There’s only the operating system. This is a Windows 10 Professionnel that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. For multimedia, you can possibly take VLC .
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, which with 512 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Connectivity is unlikely to be a priority for Gigabyte. For the Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P has only 5 ports. You will have to choose which items to plug in first, as there is no room for all your peripherals.
In short, for those who wish to replace their TV set with this laptop, it Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P seems inappropriate. With only a little autonomy, you don’t have a lot of time. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. Therefore, it is best to use this computer constantly plugged into an outlet, without worrying about battery life.
Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P the right choice for travelling connected ?

Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.

Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It’s one of the best in its class. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. With a 15.6 inches screen, it is not easy to surf the internet or to look at pictures in a group.
Unfortunately, it is not Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P equipped with a touch screen as standard models. You’ll have to remember to always carry a mouse with you. The alternative could be the keyboard trackpad.
The backlit keyboard decided by Gigabyte for this model was not Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P really necessary, but it will be useful if you work in a dimly lit plane, taxi or subway. After spending some time typing on it, we can say it is of good quality.
The glossy slab offers better viewing comfort than the previous model. Its screen displays good image definition and beautiful colours. On the other hand, this last characteristic will be less interesting for outdoor use because of the sun reflections that will occur.
The processor Intel Core i7 8750H is inferior to other competitive products.
Note that like all manufacturers, Gigabyte is optimistic about the autonomy of this Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P. You will need to expect 2/3 of this estimate for standard use; if you push the processor, the number will drop a little more.
With 7 hours, this model is unfortunately one of the weakest currently offered on laptops.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 512 Gb. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.Thanks to this, Gigabyte was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.For those who will need more space, this Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
Thanks to a reduced space requirement, departures on holiday with all the plane-bus-hotel transfers will be simple. Its 15.6 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
It Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P provides only 5 connectors. He’s one of the far less equipped laptops around right now.

Of course you could still use it for this, but you will find that the result is too tight. Here, both the processor and the general design of the model are obsolete. It will be more suitable for word processing and Internet browsing, and as soon as you try to run applications in parallel, you will have frozen screens and a rise in computer temperature, whose processor will quickly reach its operating limits.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Intel Core i7 8750H does best. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 512 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. The Aero 15-W9-7FR0250P has only got one, with total 512 Gb storage for your movies and music. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
With 7 hours in battery-only calculation mode, you’ll have little latitude. It’s not much, and it’s best to let it plugged in while you’re editing audio or video. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
