If you are looking for a highly customizable 17-inch high-end laptop, the Schenker XMG Pro 17 is a good choice. However, be prepared for noise during 3D usage.

 Don't be fooled by the plain look of the XMG Pro 17. The powerful hardware inside of the case targets passionate gamers. Even in its base configuration, the GeForce RTX 2060 manages to display most current games smoothly at maximum settings on the Full HD screen. Thanks to 144 Hz and (optional) G-Sync, the latter delivers a very smooth visual experience. Similarly, the system performance, which is is accelerated by a fast M.2 SSD, is very good as well. Furthermore, buyers will have access to numerous ports (including Thunderbolt 3) and an RGB keyboard.

Despite graphics switching, the battery life is only average. In order to facilitate a higher battery capacity, we would suggest cutting the 2.5-inch slot. Additionally, the barebone manufacturer Clevo should revise its fan control software. Ex-factory, the 17-inch laptop is very loud under load. Temperature-wise, there is enough headroom for more conservative fan speeds and noise levels.

More information about the strengths and weaknesses can be found in our in-depth review.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.
