CES in Las Vegas is a cavalcade of consumer electronics for the year to come, with thousands of products from hundreds of exhibitors. This year, only one laptop at CES made the headlines: the Aorus X7.

The X7 got so much attention because it’s the thinnest and lightest gaming laptop ever to ship with two graphics cards – a feat that provides desktop-class gaming performance in a properly portable package.

One month after CES, the Aorus X7 showed up on my doorstep. Let’s see whether the X7 lives up to the hype.
