Still searching for a decent 17" gaming laptop that won't break the bank but that does have good cooling.

The AMD Ryzen 9 mobile chips seem to have better performance and less heat issues than their Intel 10th/11th gen competitors.

This has a top end AMD 5900HX CPU and a pretty handy RTX 3070 Max P GPU

2 years warranty too!

Gigabyte A7 X1 17.3" 144Hz Ryzen 9 5900HX RTX3070P Laptop
17.3" Thin Bezel FHD 1920x1080 IPS-level 144Hz
AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX Mobile Processor
16GB DDR4, 512GB SSD
NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070P Laptop GPU
Windows 10 Home, 2 Years Warranty

Was $3299 when it launched, but seems to have dropped to a standard price of $2599 in most stores.

Use code CELEB23 for another $100 off until the end of September.

Sadly pickup only from multiple Centrecom stores in Vic.

May be eligible for a free copy of Battlefield 2042 if a coupon code is provided by your retailer (Computer Alliance giving them, not sure about Centrecom)

  • Seem alright. Gigabyte not as good as Legion and Asus?
    Good to see more 17" deals

    • I found that the Gigabyte G5 was same as a Clevo (generic brand chasis), so i would expect this one to be the same

      • Depends on the model I guess. Found Clevo to be better than gigabyte and alienware

    • I've got an Aero 17 KC and love the hardware! The gigabyte software however leaves a lot to be desired. (really bad fan curves and can't turn fans off)

      I've managed to find a piece of software called AeroCtl (works with some other Gigabyte laptops as well) which was an absolute godsend. Able to set proper fan curves including 0rpm mode up to your desired CPU temp.

      I manage to get 6+ hours easy with 30% screen brightness.

      However it does look like the A7 here is a Clevo clone of some sort. That's not a bad thing as Clevo have come leaps and bounds and the thicker chassis should do a better job at keeping that 3070 cool

    • The G14 series has been pretty groundbreaking in thin light and powerful laptops - so it depends which laptop you buy from their lineup.

      • The Asus G14/G15 zephyrus ?

  • Nice 140w 3070

    • Its seem to be a good price.
      The Legion 5Pro 3070 would be similar price, but 16", not 17"

      • I am having trouble trying to build a Legion 5 Pro with a 3070.

        It is coming back as 3060 only in the Lenovo site for me

        If you could do a 5 Pro with a 3070 it would have a better screen than this, but a lesser CPU…

  • Alienware M15 R5 Ryzen Edition 15" has same specs but with 1TB SSD and paid around $2k6 if you can access Dell Edu with codes + cashback

    • From my experience the M15 cooling leaves a lot to be desired….

      • Plus the M15 is only a 15 inch screen…..

    • Yeh…but just dont want a 17", im sure still many pp like me 😅 and love the Alien badge. Also u can find cheaper on Ebay, but spending a few $k - i just wanna be sure a seller i can trust, so directly from Dell is better choice.

      • CentreCom is good seller.
        I've got the Dell G17 2070, the fan runs noisy :-(
        Hear that the M15 is similar…

        • I returned my G7 7700 Dell as unfit for purpose. It overheated doing basic tasks like reading email. A CPU shouldn't be thermal throttling in that situation (Intel 10750H)

  • Still searching for a decent 17" gaming laptop that won't break the bank

    Which bank? Shackleton or JP Morgan Chase?

  • Similar to this (A5 X1)?

  • FYI there for $100 difference there is a 15.6" model with 240Hz display: https://www.centrecom.com.au/gigabyte-a5-x1-156-fhd-240hz-ry...

    • Thanks for the link.

      Its the brightness and resolution more than the refresh rate that is my concern with the Gigabyte.

      I have to say reading this review of the Gigabyte A7 X1 I am now leaning towards the Lenovo Legion 7 with an 5800H CPU and 3070 GPU.

      The reason being, the Legion has a beautiful screen (16") and most importantly it's thermal management is class leading.
      The review shows the 5900HX in the Gigabyte hitting 98 degrees.
      The 5800HX in the Lenovo hit 82 degrees in the same test.

      The best deal I can get on the 7 is $2771.11 at the moment - it was cheaper in May.
