An expensive beast of a gaming machine, but one with some seriously pleasing specs and plenty of highlights that make it worthwhile to consider if you want a desktop replacement.

The Aorus 17X is expensive and heavy but when it comes down to performance there is no denying this thing is a behemoth. Throw games, work and more at this thing and it will handle it with ease. Make sure you have a comfy set of headphones though as the noise of the cooling solution will drive you mad. Overall the Aorus 17X is a fantastic desktop replacement if you're the type that once went to LANs and hopes to go again in the future. Great showing from Gigabyte here.
