A Closer Look

Upon removal of the protective sleeve you are struck by two factors initially. Firstly, it is quite notable light, despite its size and secondly the screen. If you have been using a standard 15″ display on your previous laptop, those extra 2 inches are going to look instantly better for you. The Gigabyte logo is very nicely embossed in silver on the top.

The laptop has a nice high-gloss black finished and with the silver logo embellishments look highly professional.

On the left side of the laptop, you will find the majority of the connectors which include; power input, Ethernet, Kensington lock port, 2 x mini display ports, HDMI port, USB 3.1 port and a flash memory card reader. In what is a nice touch as well, the flash memory card has a blank card insert so the port can not get dirty while retaining a nice plush finish.

On the right side things are a bit simpler with; headphone and mic inputs, a USB 2.0 port and a USB 3.1 port. With only a total of 3 USB inputs, more would have been nice, but 3 is plenty for most peoples requirements.


The Gigabyte Sabre 17 has a nice LCD back-lit keyboard with nice firm, responsive keys in a full standard layout. A minor criticism would be the lack of any obvious indication that caps-lock is on, but this is a minor issue and while in operation, you are prompted when it is turned on/off. The mouse scratch-pad is located slightly off centre to the left and with 2 separate operation buttons works very nicely.

Just above the keyboard is the main top vent which is set in a ‘Firebird’ style design which although understated, is very pleasant to look at. A nice quality webcam can also be found in the immediate top centre of the monitor.
