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.

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.
