3XS Scan Performance 17" - Studio Laptop (No Thunderbolt)
System Overview

This edition of the Scan Performance 17" studio laptop is our 17" model without the additional Thunderbolt option. Offering a 17" screen running at 1920 X 1080, its more suited to the studio than its smaller 15" edition, but still offers the portability for taking your studio out on the road when needed. With the ability to fit up to 32GB of memory and six core CPU options, these studio laptops can be configured and expanded to cope with even the most demanding of requirements. These studio laptops are capable of using one mSata SSD and a standard 2.5" drive bay allowing two drives for your OS install and project storage. The 1050Ti graphics option included can handle up to 3 external screens (excluding the inbuilt screen) and offers an additional 2 display ports along with single HDMI to connect them.

Customer Reviews

3XS Scan Performance 17" - Studio Laptop (No Thunderbolt) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent laptop for audio production This laptop just works for audio straight out of the box thanks to the 3XS tweaks under the hood. I've had it about a month now and it's handled everything I've thrown at it so far without even breaking a sweat, really impressive performance. And it's rock solid in terms of stability; it's not hung or crashed yet. Also, I can't speak highly enough of the service from Scan, they're very on top of things. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Questions & Answers

Power usage

Can you give me an idea of how much power this laptop pulls from the mains please. Many thanks
Asked by: Beaks
This laptop has a 120W mains power adaptor so the max power draw will be around this value.

What docking station can be recommend?

I intend to plug multiple usb devices and a monitor to this. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Asked by: mips
Hi, This laptop features the following display and USB ports - 1 x USB 2.0 port 2 x USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) ports (Type A) 1 x USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) port (Type C) 2 x Mini Display port 1.2 1 x HDMI output port (with HDCP) If this does not feature enough USB ports for you then I would recommend the following USB hub - https://www.scan.co.uk/products/icybox-ib-ac6702-7-port-usb-30-hub-7-charging-ports-led-amp-digital-display Of course it really depends on how many ports you need but something along these lines would cover the basis of pretty much all users. I hope this helps. Kind regards,

How loud are the fans on this machine?

Asked by: Kynko
Hi, Unfortunately our chassis supplier does not state a specific dB rating for the fans but it is virtually silent during everyday use. When under a heavy load the fans do spin up a little more but the noise level is comfortable and can easily be worked with even in a quiet room. Regards,

Hi there, Is there any reason why this laptop is limited to 16gb of memory? The ADK 17" allows up to 64gb. Thanks Martin
Asked by: Kraznet
Hello, This supports 64GB however we don't have any stock of 16GB DDR3L SODIMMs RAM sticks unfortunately. Regards,

Do you fine tune the your laptops' operating system for audio production?

Do you fine tune your audio workstations? Also, do any bundled pieces of software come pre-installed?
Asked by: Cragman
Hello, Yes, we do. Profile tweaking is carried out within windows itself and we pick the components with driver level support and effciency in mind for dealing with latency issues before they occur. Our machine OS's are provided clean with bundled software, outside of the drivers not being installed, to ensure you the best starting point with your new setup. Thanks,
