I travel frequently and I've never owned a 17" laptop before.
Would you say this is too large to use comfortably on a plane in coach seating?
It won't fit on your lap in most airliners because of the width of the seats, but you can support if over the armrests.
Is it too wide to fit on the tray? I mean, is it going to go over the edge to disturb the person sitting next to me?
I don't really use laptops on my lap, particularly anything with quad core CPU and 980M, as I hope to have children some day.
The width of a coach seat is between 17" and 18" (space between the armrests).
The width of the P37X is 417mm ~16.4".
You can put it on the tray for sure.
A friend of mine frequently flies overseas for work, he says his 13 inch MBPr is about as big as he can use in coach/economy nowadays due to the drastic cuts in legroom on airline flights in the past ten years. So I'd be inclined to worry about length/height before width.
If you're flying JAL (Japan Air Lines) then you won't even have space for your own balls! lol
If the person sitting in front of me decides to recline their seat, it can suddenly get real cozy, but otherwise so far I'm able to use my 15" hp envy quite comfortably.
On short domestic flights, or whenever I can get upgrades, it won't be an issue, but if I'm flying to Asia or Europe in coach, I'm somewhat worried about being able to get work done with 17" model.
What are those "g" keys? Macros?
So a couple interesting comparisons to the 35x...
The 37x does not have a woofer, but the 35x does
They have the exact same # of ports despite the extra room on the 37x
The 37x does not offer a wqhd screen, while the 35x does
It appears that gigabyte just took their p35x design and expanded it, instead of adding new things for the extra space. The only new thing I can see is the macro keys. I wonder if the cooling is any better.
