Combining Intel’s 11th Gen processors and NVIDIA’s 2nd Gen RTX GPUs is an absolute delight for power hungry enthusiasts and avid content creators. Not only does it supply more than ample throughput but it paves the way for new technology possibilities.

As can be expected, the hardware configuration for AERO 15 OLED YD delivers solid all-round performance. AERO 15 has no reservations about offering reliable 3D performance in the latest triple-a gaming titles nor does it shy away from contributing to improve content creation workflows. Though, we would have liked to see 1080p as the native resolution – 4K stretches things too far (even for the mighty RTX 3080) when gamers want to max out on the detail preset.

The display on our AERO 15 OLED YD is fantastic and must be seen to really appreciate its true glory. The Samsung AMOLED display provides excellent brightness, higher contrast ratio and supports a higher colour gamut. If screen quality is a top priority then this laptop is an obvious choice.

In the past we’ve seen laptops struggle with extreme CPU temperatures throughout countless Intel generations but it’s really encouraging to see the 11th Gen. processors and more specifically the Intel Core i7-11800H operate at 70-80C (predecessors would skyrocket beyond 90C).

Since we have an Intel 11th Gen processor, we now have greater functionality and some new tech such as Thunderbolt 4 – by using a Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 port, this opens the door for ultra-fast data solutions. We were however surprised to see no USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports – just Gen 1. This is something of an oversight!

Pricing is for the AERO 15 OLED YD sees it hit shelves for a whopping: GBP £3500 | USD $3799 | AUD $4299 – the OLED display is likely the cause of a price hike but for some this will be worth the premium.

AERO 15 OLED YD is ideal for content creators and gamers who require specialist tools and the ample power while on the move!
