Reviews for the Gigabyte Aero 17 XA RP77

86.1% Gigabyte Aero 17 XA HDR Laptop Review: This is a *Really* Good 17-inch Laptop | Notebookcheck
Gigabyte has just created one of the best 17.3-inch laptops in the market for both professionals and gamers alike. The system packs almost everything you'd want in an ultrathin package including both long battery life and high graphics performance - an uncommon combination.
80% Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Gigabyte's Aero 17 HDR boasts a ton of excellent qualities for a gaming laptop -- a bright 4K display, comfortable keyboard, solid battery life and great overall performance -- everything except for gaming performance, and a well-placed webcam (sigh).

Review: Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR
Source: Hexus English
The extra screen real estate is a star attraction for both productivity and gaming, and Gigabyte delivers such high-end capabilities in a sleek package that bears little resemblance to the chunky 17.3in laptops of the past. Connectivity is excellent, the full-size keyboard and trackpad get most things right, and battery life is sufficient for a full day's work. The price tag is an obvious hurdle, and the webcam is still terrible, but Aero 17 HDR gets plenty right.

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.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
