The best 17-inch laptops offer much more than just larger screen real estate. In fact, they tower over the best 13-inch laptops as well as the best 15-inch laptops in more ways than one. Apart from the bigger screen, they also often come equipped with more powerful internals and a much better thermal efficiency thanks to all that space inside their chassis.

It’s thanks to these more robust specs that allow the best 17-inch laptops to boast the ideal amount of power to tackle tasks like 3D design, video editing, gaming, and other computer-intensive apps. True; you do lose out on portability when compared to smaller models out there – with the exception of the LG Gram 17, which is lighter than most 15-inch laptops. However, they still make up for that in a massive way, delivering the kind of performance that can rival some of the best gaming PCs and best computers out there.

From 3D, video editing and photo editing to gaming in 1440p or even 4K, the best 17-inch laptops can handle it all. You’ll find something that works for you on our list below.

The best 17-inch laptops of 2021

Best 17-inch laptop: Gigabyte Aorus 17x

1. Gigabyte Aorus 17X

Slays the field with truly face-melting performance

CPU: 10th-generation Intel Core i7 – i9 | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16 series – RTX 20 Super series | RAM: up to 64GB | Screen: 1‎7.3" Thin Bezel FHD 1920x1080 240Hz Anti-Glare Display | Storage: 1TB SSD (PCIe), 2TB HDD

Dominating all-around performance
Gorgeous display
Mechanical keyboard is a dream
Very, very heavy
RTX 2080 model needs two power adapters

The Gigabyte Aorus 17X is hardly for everyone, especially with that breathtakingly steep price. However, if you are looking for a 17-inch laptop that can pretty much slay anything in its path, this one’s got that face-melting performance you’re looking for, with 10th-generation Intel Core processors and Nvidia’s most powerful GPUs for gaming. Besides its performance, it’s got a few other things going for it including a display that is a complete stunner, a mechanical keyboard (nothing short of that is good for gaming) that’s incredible to use and build quality that’s designed to last.

Best 17-inch laptop: Alienware Area-51m

2. Alienware Area-51m

The best 17-inch laptop for gaming

CPU: Intel Core i7-9700 – i9-9900K | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 – RTX 2080 | RAM: 16GB – 64GB | Screen: 17.3-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) 60Hz Anti-Glare IPS – 144Hz IPS Nvidia G-Sync | Storage: 1TB SSHD – 2TB RAID0 SSDs + 1TB SSHD

Hugely powerful
Smart design
144Hz display with G-Sync
Very expensive
Can get warm (and noisy)

Alienware makes some fantastic gaming machines, including the best 17-inch model on the market in our opinion. The Area-51m benefits from a great build quality and striking design, but more importantly, some supremely powerful components to drive fast frame-rates.

This laptop can pack up to an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics, all backed with up to 64GB of RAM. All of this helps to make the most out of the Full HD display’s 144Hz refresh rate, with G-Sync on hand to keep everything super-smooth in demanding games.

There are plenty of other smart touches with this Alienware model, including the ability to upgrade the GPU and CPU for future-proofing, a quality keyboard, and some very impressive speakers delivering both clarity and bass. Notebook speakers that don’t suck? Yes, they do exist…

The downside is the amount of damage the Area-51m will do to your bank balance, particularly for a higher-end spec. Still, if you’ve got the cash, it’s well worth the outlay.

Best 17-inch laptop: Gigabyte Aorus 17G

3. Gigabyte Aorus 17G

Big, powerful, industrial

CPU: 10th-generation Intel Core i7 – i9 | Graphics: up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super with Max-Q | RAM: up to 64GB DDR4 | Screen: 17.3-inch Thin Bezel 240Hz FHD 1920x1080 anti-glare display LCD | Storage: 2x M.2 SSD

Excellent performance
Top-shelf build quality
Fast and color accurate display

If you want an absolute beast of a 17-inch laptop for gaming, Gigabyte’s Aorus 17G is a worthy candidate both inside and out. While this megalithic portable has a substantial weight of 5.95Ib to match, it’s a small price to pay for such power inside – namely, 10th-generation processors and up to 64GB of memory, as well as Nvidia’s most powerful RTX and Super RTX cards. There’s nothing this laptop can't handle (or annihilate), making it a prime example of what a next-generation desktop replacement can be. And, that’s without mentioning its 1080p display touting a whopping 240Hz refresh rate and its solid build. Just be ready to break that piggy bank, as this won’t be cheap.

Best 17-inch laptop: Razer Blade Pro 17

The Razer Blade Pro 17 boasts enough power and delivers a fantastic enough performance to deserve to be called a workstation. (Image credit: Future)

4. Razer Blade Pro 17 (2020)

Razer going pro

CPU: 10th-generation Intel Core i7-10875H | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GeForce RTX 2070 – RTX 2080 Super | RAM: 16GB DDR4 | Screen: 17.3" Full HD 240Hz, 100% sRGB, 6.0 mm bezel, factory calibrated – 17.3" 4K Touch 120Hz, 100% sRGB, 6.0 mm bezel, factory calibrated | Storage: 512GB – 1TB SSD

Robust performance
Plenty of ports
300Hz display
Very heavy

The Razer Blade Pro 17 may have limitations in terms of configurations – you would have to stick to one of five available configurations and cannot personalize the specs further – but whichever one you choose, you know you’re taking home an incredibly powerful 17-inch laptop. With a 10th-generation Intel Core i7 chip and Nvidia’s higher end consumer graphics cards, there’s plenty of power under the hood for whatever graphics-intensive tasks you need – gaming, video editing, designing on AutoCAD. The 300Hz refresh rate on its display and variety of ports help as well, even if its weight and unimpressive battery life might hold it back from being the best of the best.

5. Dell XPS 17 (2020)

A brilliant 17-inch Ultrabook

CPU: Up to 10th Generation Intel Core i9-10885H | Graphics: Up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 with Max-Q | RAM: Up to 64GB DDR4-2933MHz | Screen: 17.0" FHD+ (1920 x 1200) InfinityEdge Non-Touch Anti-Glare 500-Nit – 17.0" UHD+ (3840 x 2400) InfinityEdge Touch Anti-Reflective 500-Nit | Storage: Up to 2TB M.2 PCIe NVMe

Great screen
Long battery life
Not the most portable
Lack of ports

For a 17-inch laptop, the Dell XPS 17 (2020) is impressively thin and light, especially when you consider the fact that it boasts powerful specs for that top-notch performance that content creators require. Among the best 17-inch laptops out there, this is practically the whole package, touting a big, gorgeous screen, fantastic battery life that will last you the entire day and a gorgeous design on top of everything else. That’s without even mentioning its mid-range price of entry, giving the MacBook Pro 16-inch a good run for its money.

Best 17-inch laptop: Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701

6. Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701

The best thin-and-light 17-inch laptop for gaming

CPU: Intel Core i7 | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 – RTX 2080 Max-Q | RAM: 8GB – 24GB | Screen: 17.3-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) 144Hz panel with G-Sync | Storage: 512GB – 2TB SSD

Highly portable
Yet still packs plenty of performance
Excellent color-accurate display
Another pricey gaming machine

Who says you can’t have your gaming cake and eat it, because with laptops like this ROG Zephyrus, it’s possible to have an incredibly powerful portable which isn’t even remotely hefty, but remains very svelte and, er, portable.

It is, in short, a gaming machine for which you don’t have to employ air quotes around the word ‘portable’, being 18.7mm thick (or rather, thin) and weighing 2.7kg. Compare that to the above Alienware which is 43mm and 4.8kg…

Yet with this Asus 17-inch laptop you still get a Core i7-8750H hexa-core CPU backed by a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q with 8GB of video RAM (there’s up to 24GB of system memory, incidentally). All this means you can ramp up the detail levels and enjoy any game you want.

The display is also a fabulous piece of work, and what’s more it’s Pantone Validated with 100% sRGB color gamut, meaning the color accuracy is spot-on out-of-the-box, and this notebook can be used for professional photo or video editing.

Bear in mind however that battery life is disappointingly short, and the price is disappointingly hefty. For those who don’t have the hefty budget to cope with this, or the aforementioned Alienware laptop’s price tag, breathe easier and check out our next entry for a more affordable gaming option.

Best 17-inch laptop: LG Gram 17 (2020)

(Image credit: Future)

7. LG Gram 17 (2020)

Super lightweight with a big, beautiful display

CPU: Intel Core i7-1065G7 | Graphics: Intel Iris Plus Graphics | RAM: 16GB | Screen: 17" WQXGA (2560 x 1600) IPS Display | Storage: 1TB M.2 SSD

Beautiful display
Long, long battery life
Bad speakers
Less-than-par CPU performance

The award-winning LG Gram 17 is back, with the same innovative lightweight design on a 17-inch chassis. This time around, it comes with fresh new specs under the hood including Intel’s Ice Lake chip, alongside a few other amazing features like a beautiful display and an incredibly long battery life. A very comfortable keyboard is also on offer, and this whole package makes it excellent for anyone that has to work on the go. The CPU performance and speakers could be much better, but as long as you’re not doing processor or graphics intensive work, this one’s a winner if you’re looking for the best 17-inch laptop designed for the nomadic lifestyle.

Best 17-inch laptop: Asus FX705DT

8. Asus TUF Gaming FX705DT

The best affordable 17-inch laptop for gaming

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3550H | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 | RAM: 8GB | Screen: 17.3-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS-level NanoEdge | Storage: 512GB SSD

Impressive price/performance ratio
Backlit gaming-optimized keyboard

The words ‘cheap’ and ‘gaming laptop’ don’t mix well. Simply put, if you’re on a strict budget, you won’t get a machine capable of playing the latest games at palatable frame-rates – especially if you want a 17-inch screen to boot. So that’s why the FX705DT is our ‘affordable’ pick as opposed to ‘budget’. Remember, if you want to go really bargain basement, you’ll be confined to casual gaming only.

This Asus gaming laptop, however, packs a Ryzen 5 3550H processor with a GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card with 4GB of video RAM, plus there’s 8GB of system memory. The FX705DT also boasts a roomy 512GB NVMe SSD and a backlit keyboard optimized for gaming.

All of which makes it a great choice for tackling the majority of games at good detail levels while still keeping things pretty smooth – and remaining relatively wallet-friendly. At the time of writing, there are some pretty tempting deals to be had on this Asus machine, too.

Gigabyte Aero 17 (2021)

9. Gigabyte Aero 17 (2021)

A creative professional's dream

CPU: 10th Gen Intel Core i9/i7 H-Series | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series | RAM: up to 64GB | Screen: 17-inch Full HD 300Hz IPS-level – 4K HDR display with ADOBE RGB 100% color gamut | Storage: 2‎x M.2 SSD

Gorgeous display
Abundance of ports
Runs hot

One of the most powerful mobile workstations out there, the Gigabyte Aero 17 (2021) comes with a lot of power, a gorgeous display, and a whole lotta ports. Best yet, it’s priced well below its less-powerful rivals, making it a better proposition even if you have a more flexible budget. It isn’t by any means perfect. The battery life could use a bit of a boost, for example. But, for how much you’re paying and for the other things you’re getting in return, it’s a minuscule sacrifice.

Best 17-inch laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad P73

10. Lenovo ThinkPad P73

The best 17-inch laptop for creative professionals

CPU: Intel Core i7 – Intel Xeon | Graphics: Up to Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 | RAM: Up to 128GB | Screen: 17.3-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS – 17.3-inch 4K IPS | Storage: 256GB – 1TB SSD

Superb display
Dolby Vision HDR
Xeon CPU and RTX 5000 GPU
Still quite hefty

This is another mobile workstation, but it represents a somewhat cheaper – and indeed a slightly slimmer – alternative to the above HP machine, with the P73 being ideally suited to content creators.

You get the choice of an Intel Xeon E-2276M processor or 9th-gen Intel Core CPU (up to an i9-9880H with vPro), with up to Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 graphics and up to 128GB of system memory. But the display is the jewel in the crown featuring a 4K resolution, 400 nits brightness, Dolby Vision HDR and 100% coverage of the Adobe color gamut. The screen is, quite simply, ideal for serious photo or video editing.

The cutting-edge hardware support continues with Wi-Fi 6 on board, and you get a good selection of ports for wired connectivity, including a pair of Thunderbolt 3 connectors. Creative pros need look no further for something that can cater for all their needs, at a relatively reasonable asking price for the workstation market.
