Gigabyte is often thought of more by gamers, but this hot Black Friday RTX 3060 laptop deal at Best Buy is perhaps better suited to the creators out there.
OK, and gamers, but the AERO 4K OLED is an NVIDIA Studio-certified laptop, which makes it a really strong tool for folks who use a whole variety of creative software.
This is a pretty hefty discount and one of the best Black Friday laptop deals, especially considering it also packs a 4K Samsung OLED display. Oh yeah.
Gigabyte AERO 4K OLED | Save $650
This is a pretty insane laptop with not only a GTX 3060 and an 11th Gen Intel Core i7, but a simply glorious Samsung 4K OLED display. It can certainly game, but as an NVIDIA Studio laptop, this one’s more for the creators.
First up, what hardware are you getting? Well besides that display, you’ll also find an Intel Core i7-11800H, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB PCIe SSD, and an NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU. So it can certainly game, but the display refresh rate is only 60Hz, so there are sacrifices to be made on that front.
But this is an NVIDIA Studio laptop. The Studio program isn’t just about hardware, as NVIDIA has a specialist driver and has worked in partnership with a number of software makers, like Adobe. Studio laptops have to meet certain criteria to be certified, and when you wrap up the whole package what you get is unmatched performance in those Studio-friendly applications.
The Studio drivers are completely separate from the GeForce gaming drivers, but in this case, the AERO 4K OLED is using a GeForce RTX GPU, so you might well want to game. No problem, NVIDIA allows you to switch the drivers over to the more gaming-friendly ones with a simple click of a button.
A lot is said about how well creative software performs on a MacBook Pro, but if you prefer Windows (and you like to keep money in your pocket). an NVIDIA Studio laptop like this is a perfect alternative. It won’t be around for long as this price though, so grab it with both hands.
