The Gigabyte Aero 17 (2021) is one of the first laptops to come out this year with the new mobile Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series GPUs. The chassis is very well designed and offers a look that's somewhere between a gaming laptop and a professional workstation. For a mobile workstation for creative professionals, the RGB lighting on the Aero 17 seems out of place. The Aero 17 is available in the US, starting at $1,599 (about £1,170 / AU$2,070)

The Aero 17 HDR first appeared in 2020, and we previously covered the XB release built around an Intel 10th Gen Core i7 CPU. The new XC variant, retains main of the classic features of that design and also sports a 10th generation Intel CPU, but now the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 video technology. We've only two very minor complaints about the XC, and they're not things that have not yet been addressed in the previous releases.
