Description

The MAX-17 is the lightest 17.3" gaming laptop in the world & weighs just 4.71 pounds with a durable magnesium alloy chassis from top to bottom. An impressive thermal design & improvements in our EluktroBoost technology results in maximum power at every level. Competing laptops in the thin & light category require sacrificing to low wattage Max-Q graphics. Get ready to enjoy this PC to the max!

Exciting New Features:

- Covert Gamer - Many in the gaming community asked for an unbranded PC along with many other exciting features, so we went to work!  There is no external branding on the outside of our system except for our name on the regulatory label on the base of the PC.  We're offering a free Black Swarm dbrand skin that contains our icon cutout with each purchase.  Apply and enjoy a unique muted appearance no manufacturer has ever offered before!  With or without, this PC carries a very professional appearance in environments where other brands are blaring with RGB lights and external color accents everywhere.  If you enjoy having a laptop that can crush anything you throw at it without looking like a child's play-toy, you've come to the right place!

- Revamped Thermal System - Dual 8mm fans with 53 fan-blades and a slight modification to the heatsinks provides even better cooling.  We haven't seen a competing 2070 Super Max-P in a 17.3" thin and light laptop yet so that tells you we're doing something right.  Yes, our 2080 Super is Max-Q, but it certainly will not be your average low wattage Max-Q!

- Integrated MUX Controller - Choose your graphics options depending on your needs with these three options:

Optimus - System automatically chooses between the dedicated GPU and integrated GPU based on application.  Recommended for daily use.
 
dGPU - Disables the integrated graphics and runs directly off of the graphics card.  A very exciting feature for content creators and gamers, but consumes far more battery life when on the go.
 
iGPU - Disables the NVIDIA graphics card and runs completely off of the integrated Intel HD graphics.  Recommended when battery life and daily productivity matters most.  Switch the system in to Office Mode with the iGPU and you now have a seriously impressive 17.3" lightweight travel companion!
 
- High Color Production Panels - At a minimum, the MAX-17 display included is 96% sRGB or higher.  Gamers and content creators quite often want the same quality and panel hardware so we're merging them together.  Every unit is individually factory calibrated with a color accuracy delta E < 2h.
 
- Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) Support - Exciting ability to use overclockable memory!  Note: This is strictly recommended for advanced users only whom intend to install XMP memory in place of our own RAM configurations.  If you do not have a thorough background in XMP memory already or are buying a pre-configured system, please do not attempt to access this option.  Improperly changing even a single timing can easily cause unexpected blue screens, prevent the system from powering on at all or in some cases even brick your system completely.
 
- Power Mode or Max Fan Button Option - Choose your power mode of Office Mode, Gaming Mode & Beast Mode or simply provide maximum fans at the press of a button!
 
- Integrated Smart Amplifier - 4 watts per speaker for better quality and louder sound!

A really good laptop

1 month usage at the time of this review. It was a long wait to receive this laptop but it was definitely worth the wait! It is an excellent product that is customizable to suit your needs. The magnesium alloy makes a decent build quality for the laptop and the additional cooling options keeps the temperature in check while still providing excellent processor performance. The only downside is that the fans are fairly loud making it slightly annoying to play games without a headset. Moreover, it might make the built-in laptop mic ineffective and muffled. However, I think managing thermals is a bigger priority so I would gladly make that tradeoff for an otherwise amazing product.

Everything I expected.

As reference for a more accurate representation of this review: Total prices with upgrades $2,700~ + Tax Custom upgrades: - 2070Super plus 240Hz monitor - Ultimate liquid metal cooling - 2 x 1TB m.2 NVMe - 64 GB ram @ 2999Mhz First of all, the star rating is reflection of the product, however I will also talk about my experience with customer service at the end of the review. This is a great laptop. PERIOD. It has a solid construction and it feels great to hold. The keyboard feels solid and typing is easy even with it&#039;s small travel. The trackpad is a little on the fiction size for my taste but doesn&#039;t deter from a good experience when I have to use it. The disable featured on the top left is one of the best things in this laptop. Extremely convenient. The screen looks amazing and the calibration I got it with was fantastic. I have a Colormunki and ran a calibration, the profile was almost identical, but i prefer the profile from Eluktronics, great work! About the M.2 and RAM: both are Adata, solid brand with good reputation. I just wish, for the price paid, it came with something better. Performance-wise, no major complains, except my read/write speed on the M.2 seems a little slow. Thermals: CPU and GPU sit around 50C on mostly idle. Let me clarify that my idle consist of triple monitor setup with a bunch of software running in the background. I also have the laptop sitting on a cooling fan. I do media creation, 3d rendering and some gaming and I&#039;ve yet to hit thermal throttling. Battery life is exceptional, specially if using the MSHybrid mode. The capacity rated is 91Wh, biggest I&#039;ve seen that i can carry on a plane. Excellent job! Nuances you might want to consider: - Only 1 Thunderbolt 3. Like I said, I use 3 monitors. One through the HDMI from the laptop and 2 from a docking station connected to the Thunderbolt 3 port. Getting them to work together was more complicated than I would have like, so just keep that in mind. I have the laptop monitor disabled by default. I come from two ASUS, laptops the G751JY and the GL502VMK. And, while I prefer the extra connectivity those laptops have, I wouldn&#039;t look back. This laptop is thinner, lighter, more powerful, better battery, and has a better display. Overall, after months of researching for a new laptop, I know I made the right decision. I hope that it last the 5-years I want it to last. Note: The Max-17 works as a desktop replacement for me. So in a few weeks I will be unplugging the battery to extend its lifespan. I would definitively recommend this particular model, and most likely would buy again from Eluktronics when I want to update this laptop. Now, about customer service. First the good: I appreciate the effort put into getting my system on the time frame I requested. I couldn&#039;t speak more highly about the effort the Eluktronics team put into this. Sales and Customer Service was always very polite and provided pin-point responses to my inquires. The not so good: After my initial email and message communication, which was responded in less than a day, I tried contacting them for 2 weeks (right after I purchase the laptop) without any response. Not even a blip. And, while I understand the current world situation, I find 2 weeks of wait time to be unacceptable. Made me feel like now that they had my money, they didn&#039;t care about me. There appears to be an internal lack of communication regarding follow-ups because on their responses they (the CS team) contradict previous answers (regarding delivery time, for example), but once I got a response, the back and forth of messages was massively better. Overall, there are things that can be improved regarding customer service, but I know they are trying their best with the resources they have and look forward to the improvements they have in the future.
