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.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only a few laptops are in this weight class because the mobility is rather limited due to the high weight.
