Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR XA Review
We have a statement to make here: On the Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR, we played some games. Yes, Aero is Gigabyte’s brand for designers and digital content makers (Aorus laptops are aimed for serious gamers), and the 17.3-inch notebook reviewed here is especially aesthetic, thanks to its gorgeous X-Rite Pantone-certified 4K panel that fulfils the VESA DisplayHDR 400 specification. However, the Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR additionally includes a powerful eight-core Intel Core i9 CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics, as well as a stylish RGB keyboard backlighting although it’s price isn’t low. It’s quick enough to be an excellent platform for competitive games. You can call the Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR a huge premium laptop with the ultimate experience whose price is high but it is a capable laptop.
To be clear, the Aero isn’t a spaceship-styled gamer rig—a it’s very conventional aluminum slab that’s surprisingly lightweight for a 17.3-inch laptop at 0.84 by 15.6 by 10.6 inches and 5.5 lbs. In addition, owing to Gigabyte’s goal to keep the internal components cool, it’s almost a bit too lightweight. A large portion of the bottom, back, and sides have been crafted out for large openings, and if you grab the laptop and grip it by the right hand side of the palm rest, the frame will bend only enough to exert pressure to the cooler, and you may hear the fan blades scratch into the inside of the frame.
