Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
Gigabyte's Aorus 15G has an eight-core Intel processor, upper-midrange RTX 2070 Super with Max-Q GPU. The Omron B3KL low-profile switches are tactile and clicky, though relatively quiet. The 15G is a chunky laptop, so it's not a great pick if you're looking for something for regular travel.

Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Gigabyte Aorus 15G is a powerful laptop that excels at Full HD gaming with superb specs and a high refresh rate. It's the mechanical keyboard that stands out most however, with the laptop being one of the few portables of this size to feature one. With such a wonderful performance across the majority of games on maximum settings, gaming in Full HD rarely looks better. You'll just need to handle a few strange choices with the £1700 starting price.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent performance at 1080p
  • Excellent mechanical keyboard
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
