The top end models look very tasty indeed, well done Asus.

SELEES: I never understand 'creators' reviewing gaming laptops instead of the plethora of creator laptops on the market such as those from Gigabyte, MSI, Razer and even Asus. Creator laptops feature higher resolution screens generally, and are more suited to creators than the high refresh rate screens of gaming laptops which are more often than not lower resolution...

The Gigabyte has a Samsung AMOLED 4K display, show me another laptop with that same screen be it gaming or creator. All gaming laptops have less than 4K screens, some with the option to add 4K at a lower refresh rate, which is pointless for gaming really.

With gaming laptops you are also paying for RGB lighting and other gaming features etc. A creator like the Gigabyte is not cheap no, neither is a fully spec'd out gaming laptop.

I get that under the hood the requirements for both are virtually the same, with gaming laptops usually being thicker for the bigger cooling, as they tend to run flat out for hours. I simply would not compromise on the display for photography, video editing or web development, which is what I do with mine.

No they DO NOT have the same screens, what is so hard to understand???

In fact Chris Niccolls himself is using the Gigabyte Aero for his personal photo editing, perhaps he could chime in?

It is simple, take a look at the 4K AMOLED display on the Gigabyte Aero and you may just understand. It is a VERY high pixel count that, to use Apple terms, is VERY Retina like, sharpness is incredible as is the colour accuracy. As for cooling, Creator laptops have the same great cooling, so again, why review a gaming laptop?

SELEES: They really need to come out and explain the version number going backwards as it is confusing. We were all on 1.9X and now the update is 1.10? Great software however, and I applaud the new faster versions.

I suspect they are planning to finally charge us all an update fee for Version 2.0 when it arrives, which I am more than happy to pay. But given this update is now called 1.10, I assume there will be a few more iterations before Version 2.0 arrives.

You may well have a point Sir. Still confusing however...

I have a dream: People were afraid that after V1.9, the editor would release V2.0 and the upgrade would no longer be free.
Well, here is V1.10, another free upgrade.
Adobe, please learn from Serif!

I wish they WOULD charge us all an upgrade fee, they are very deserving of it, and it would ensure they can afford to continue developing the software.

Why are so many of you waiting for Affinity to deliver a replacement to Lightroom when there are already some truly excellent options, ie: Capture One, DXO Photolab?

hectorsm: I'm glad I bought Affinity Photo when it came out. Good software, good company, with long term product support via updates and no price gouging or money draining subscriptions.

I wish they had a full raw editor software like Lightroom. I would buy it in a heartbeat.

It is coming!

snapa: My question is, why do professionals PP on a laptop rather than on a desktop computer. It seems to me that a high-end desktop computer with much larger monitor/screen would be much better to PP high quality IQ pictures.
What I'm saying is, there are no laptop computers that can compete with high end desktop computers at the same price.

Yes there is! I just replaced my 18 month old Desktop running 9th Gen Core i9 9900K CPU and NVIDIA RTX2080 OC with the new Gigabyte Aero YD running 11th Gen Core i9-11980HK CPU, NVIDIA RTX 3080 Laptop GPU (Not Max Q), 64GB RAM, 12TB SSD Storage, with the best 4K AMOLED Display I have ever used. It is faster than my desktop, totally portable so I can work anywhere and has every port I could ever need. It is a total powerhouse, more so than these new Razers, just...And I still get to connect it to my large screen when at my desktop.

I have one of their 8TB SSDs and a 4TB SSD inside my laptop giving me 12TB total storage in a laptop. What wonderful times we live in!

SELEES: Yawn...Adobe products are for the ignorant amongst us. So much better product is available today for those bold enough to look past this 'default' bloatware. And yes, Adobe has had great success with their raping pricing model, all it proves is my first statement, nothing more.

Four years of NOT using Adobe is a freedom I enjoy greatly, and Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher are all brilliant and ridiculously cheap to the point I wish they would put the price up and charge for updates, PLEASE. They deserve it!

Davinci Resolve leaves the bloatware known as Premiere Pro in it's wake, and is updated at a far greater pace than the overtly wealthy Adobe seems to be able to muster.

...It was Adobe's lack of respect for it's loyal, paying customers that drove me away and into the arms of Affinity, Capture One, and Davinci Resolve. I am forever thankful for that, as these apps are all superior. No, Affinity apps do not have EVERY feature of Photoshop etc, but they do have every feature that 95% of people need, and they are all faster than Adobe bloatware. Capture One is so superior to Lightroom, as is Davinci Resolve with respect to Premiere.

If you have never owned any Adobe software prior to the 'ransomware' pricing coming along, then sure the monthly pricing on Photoshop/Lightroom is good, but it is still bloatware at the end of the day. Oh and let's not forget, the moment you stop paying, you have nothing...no thanks.

I owned 2 x Adobe Creative Suite collections, and paid Adobe for years to upgrade them both, and wondered what the hell I got for my upgrade, other than bug fixes.

When their 'ransomware' pricing came along, I thought "after paying full price for two suites, I now have to start paying all over again, and simply throw away the two suites I bought and upgraded for years" How is that fair?

If I chose to play along having received NOTHING in return for my years of loyalty of PAYING for the software, I would now get to pay the exact same price as the little turd that used a cracked copy for years', how is that fair?

SELEES: Apple is now in the business of making Appliances. If you want a traditional computer, one where YOU can add memory and SSDs at will, go Windows.

Yes there are Windows machine with soldered on SSD and RAM, but the big difference is I have a choice to be something that is not. Apple are an appliance company now, plain and simple. And I was an Apple FAN boy for many years, I left and thank god I did.
