Just like the saying, ‘don’t judge the book by its cover’, Schenker XMG Pro 17 PB71RD-G has more than what is being shown by its rather plain, laid back physical presentation. While most high-end laptops try to lure customer’s attention with its rather extravagant design, XMG Pro 17 has opted to win people’s heart through its performance rather than appealing design. This model definitely has a lot of potential hidden within it in terms of its performance. While it is undeniable that the outer look does matter in user selection, it is definitely not the only deciding factor when it comes to choosing the best laptop out there.
First of all, XMG Pro 17 is not just any standard ordinary laptop but rather a gaming laptop. While there aren’t much fancy details in relation to the design, the overall quality of the chassis is good. In addition to the cover, the top of the base unit also consists of metal. There is obviously nothing to fuss about regarding the built quality of this laptop and its rigidity. It is definitely winning hearts with its rather simple but compact look. However, if there is anything that needs tweaking in XMG Pro 17, it has to be the keyboard. The keyboard can be accepted in terms of its simple presentation but the rigidity of it has to be improved in order to withstand the wear and tear. Generally, the keyboard does play a major role in gaming laptops. Therefore, it needs to be able to perform to the extent needed, in which XMG Pro 17 has a rather decent keyboard but a little improvement would not be so bad either.
The biggest wow factor of this laptop has to be its wide port selection that has been incorporated within the model. XMG Pro 17 provides a single HDMI and Mini DisplayPort along with two USB Type-C 3.1 Gen2 ports which includes a Thunderbolt 3 port and a DisplayPort. While the Thunderbolt 3 allows connection to a more powerful external GPU, the overall outlay of ports allows connection to literally up to four monitors. These features are definitely a drool-worthy type of inclusion for all the gamers by heart. Most of the time, when it comes to gaming laptops, users not only look into the features but rather on the experience that the whole laptop caters for. If the laptop can be connected to a maximum of four monitors, without any doubt there is definitely an immersive expensive experience for users in it.
Apart from the features mentioned above, Schenker also covers the users of XMG Pro 17 with a base warranty period of 24 months which can be extended up to three years depending on the user’s choice and preferences while purchasing the product. In addition, there is also an option for extending the fast repair service. Therefore, if there is any issue with the product after purchase, it can be dealt with immediately.
