Who says you can’t have it all? Or at least close to it. The 17.3-inch Gigabyte P57Xv7 (starting at $1,599, or $1,999 as reviewed) combines graphics might and portability into a stylish chassis. Powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, the P57Xv7 can do it all: gaming, productivity and VR. However, with less than 3 hours of battery life, you might want to keep your gaming travels local.
It looks like Gigabyte is taking a few pages from its sister brand, Aorus. The P57Xv7 isn’t the hulking mass of plastic that I’m used to seeing from a 17-inch desktop replacement. Instead, the P57Xv7 is all clean, delicate lines with a dollop of color for good measure. The black plastic lid is devoid of any real decoration outside of the gleaming, chrome Gigabyte emblem at the center. But it’s those subtle touches I really appreciate, like the pair of darts at the bottom of the lid or how the top of the lid forms into a rounded point like an arrowhead worn down by time.
