80% XMG U706 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
XMG’s latest laptop leads its class in terms of its benchmark speed, and its screen, speakers and build quality all see it head to the top of the notebook market. In other areas, though, it’s poorer: battery life is disappointing, it’s huge and hefty, and it’s disarmingly expensive. It’s a knockout gaming laptop, sure, but small desktops and cheaper, slimmer notebooks are alternatives that many should explore.

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.
