Pros

  • Streamlined overlocking
  • High-end specs
  • 4K display

Cons

  • Prohibitively heavy
  • Fan loudness
  • Battery life is too low
  • Heat build-up when in SC mode

Bottom Line

The SC17 is one of the rare laptops that justifies its premium price, even if the reality of that high-end performance comes at an often brutal cost to portability.

Would you buy this?

There are gaming laptops, and then there’s the EVGA SC17.

The company’s first gaming laptop released over in the U.S. last year and while it’s only now made its way to the Australian market, there's definitely a strong case to be made that it lives up to both the hype and high-end price-tag.

The Pitch

Making their name in high-end components, it feels like it was only a matter of time before EVGA made the move towards selling standalone machines. They clearly know their stuff when it comes to the guts, nuts and bolts of powerful PCs - so there's a lot to like about the pitch for a gaming laptop built by them.
