100% Gigabyte Aorus 17X review: an absolute beast of a gaming laptop
Source: T3 English
This all comes with a cost of course, and it's a high one. Check the widgets on this page for the latest pricing, but at the time of writing you're looking at paying very close to £4,000 or $4,000 to get your hands on this beast of a laptop. In other words, you can buy a decent car for the price of the Gigabyte Aorus 17X, but if you're keen for your hard-earned money to go towards one of the most powerful gaming laptops on the planet, then this is where you want to invest.

17.30":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.75 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Aorus:

This company was founded as a subsidiary of Gigabyte in Tawain in 2014. The logo is a falcon head, since the name Aorus is derived from the ancient Egyptian falcon god Horus. According to employees, the first letter of HORUS was changed to "A" to represent the brand as "A team". Aorus primarily produces gaming laptops as well as computer accessories.

Since the market shares are still low, there are also few reviews. However, the products achieve relatively good ratings (as of 2016).


100%: This notebook model is regarded by the reviewers to be exceptionally good. There hardly exist laptops, which are rated so good. If this rating can be taken seriously, this is a clear recommendation for purchase.
