Reviews for the Gigabyte Aero 17 XA RP77
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.

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).

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.
