Reviews for the Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR YC

87.6% Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR YC Laptop in review: Debut for Nvidia Ampere | Notebookcheck
Judging solely by the exterior of the Aero 17 HDR, you would think that not much has changed. But the device features a new GPU under its hood. We tested the best configuration available, equipped with a GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop.
80% Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR YC review: Incredible speed, eye-watering price
Source: It Pro English
The Aero 17 is one of the most expensive creative laptops you can buy, but it’s powerful enough to tackle virtually any work task and Gigabyte bolsters the components with good thermal performance, a fantastic screen and great connectivity. That’s great, but the weight, design and battery life are middling, and the keyboard could be larger and quieter.

Top-notch performance for professionals and gamers, but it this hardware isn’t a cheap option and the mobile RTX 3070 doesn't have all the power of the discrete desktop card.

100% Gigabyte Aero 17 (2021) review
Source: Techradar English
The Gigabyte Aero 17 (2021) is definitely one of the most powerful mobile workstations for creative professional you're going to find. Its build quality is exceptional, the design and display are gorgeous, and you definitely won't lack for ports. Best of all, it's priced well below its less-powerful rivals regardless of configuration, so its price-to-performance ratio should put it at the top of the list for any creative professional looking to upgrade their work laptop. That said, all this comes at the cost of portability and battery life and while it can play AAA games very well, there are better gaming laptops out there.
