No Sky Limit on AORUS X3 PLUS v5
Mini gaming machine. Skylake, USB Type-C, DDR4, NVMe SSD, touchpad redesign, and HDMI 2.0 round up the list of changes for the refreshed X3 Plus. Aorus shows it means business in the already narrow sub 14-inch gaming category.
It has only been six months since we last checked out the Aorus X3 Plus v3 and it's already time for a small refresh in the fast-moving mobile gaming market. The updated X3 Plus v5 brings about a number of minute changes that are all very welcomed and essentially required to keep up with the latest offerings from competitors like Asus, Alienware, and MSI.
Since the chassis of the Skylake X3 Plus v5 is identical to the Haswell X3 Plus v3, we recommend checking out our previous review for more images and details on build quality and keyboard. Instead, this review update will focus on what has changed and if the additions are adequate enough for users on the fence to consider this small 13.9-inch gaming powerhouse. Is the Aorus X3 Plus still the best ultraportable gaming machine money can buy?
