Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus S17 GX703HM-K4002T
Source: Ultrabook Review
This base configuration on the ROG Zephyrus S17 is a mid-level performer in a fancy suit and with fancy features, the kind you can expect in the premium niche. All these come with a steep entry price for an i7 laptop with 16 GB of RAM and an RTX 3060 dGPU, but the package might nonetheless appeal to a larger audience looking for a premium 17-inch laptop at a little over $2000. Right now, though, I'd give it a bit more time so Asus can figure out their QC and work on a more mature software, both potential unpleasant aspects that you'd have to deal with as an early adopter.

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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
