  1. Great review! Focussing on the right aspects in a laptop in this price range. I do wonder, however, how this Aero 13 gets so much attention when there are Laptops like the Lenovo Slim 7 Pro with Ryzen 7 5800H and a stunning 90Hz QHD OLED for 900 Euros on the market.

  2. I just bought this laptop, the build quality and the display are amazing. Unfortunately it was only available in my country with 8 gigs of RAM, but since i already have a desktop I'm not too worried about it.

  3. Actually you can charge the laptop over Type C.
    I rarely use the barrel charger on mine.

    Got a great deal on the Ryzen 5 version with 8 gb RAM and the 512 gb SSD

  4. hey, i need some suggestions
    should i go for legion 7 with 32GB of ram, bundled with (legion armored backpack, m500 mouse, and h300 headset) which is 100 USD more expensive or a legion 5 pro with 16GB of ram bundled with (legion recon backpack, m300 mouse, and h300 headset), and the rest of the specifications are the same

  5. 29th, I love your way of reviewing laptops and audio gear. It’s totally the perfect thing for providing a in depth view that’s not boring and just as informative as a thesis.

  6. I don't think it's made out of plastic but actually magnesium alloy which is lighter than alluminium and softer to the touch, confusing people to think it as plastic due as it doesn't have the strong metal like feeling present in alluminium chassis. I've it and I checked the review of others as well. Regarding keyboard backlight, just select the Ceramic white color at 15 bucks which adds backlight keyboard by default and saves another 5 buck. Also, Costco is selling it at 799 but with backlit keyboard.


    What laptop would you buy if you wanted it? Future proof? I want around 500 knit display, 32 gigs RAM half terabyte of storage. Or more? I've been looking at the Lenovo X1 carbon. What would you recommend? I like having all the security on the Lenovo the v. Pro version? Or is there another laptop you recommend? I like good build quality. Like I said making it last for years. Upwards of 10

  8. This is very relevant to my interests! What about a top slim and light 13" laptop comparison video? I'm looking to get a 13" laptop for under 1k (like the aer13) with similar specs. Are there any similar options that offer 5-10% better gaming performance? The Asus Zenbook 13 from the benchmarks looks like exactly what I might want. Is there any way to link to that specific build (or know what version of the Zenbook 13 is 25watts)? It seems like most manufactures don't advertise the wattage and I want to make sure I'm getting that 25 watt chip.

  9. Dammit it's on sale again for undee $630 for 16 GB Model but I don't have $1 in my account let alone 630. Anyway, please do mention full price (with taxes) because it's 580 plus taxes. Or at least mention the expected full price.

  10. Thank you so much for reviewing this. I bought this last month after checking the specs and expected similar behavior as you described. It really is a hidden gem!
