The Aorus X9 fires on all performance cylinders and has a solid keyboard.

Laptop Mag


Lots of gaming-notebook manufacturers say their laptops are designed to "conquer" or "shred." But the $3,899 Aorus X9 showed us its power rather than telling, with an Intel Core i9 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 to plow through any productivity or gaming task you throw at it. It also comes with an array of customizable lights, and I'm a fan of any laptop that includes a mechanical keyboard. But the 144-Hz, 1080p display is dimmer than I would like, and this thing runs hot and loud consistently. It has enough power not just for a gamer but also a streamer and podcaster, if you can deal with the fussy annoyances.
