Reviewers from Gizmodo have found the following[***]:
Gigabyte's Aorus 17G is one the first laptops with Intel and Nvidia's newest mobile parts. The low-profile, mechanical keyboard is tactile and clicky, and yet quieter than a desktop keyboard with similar blue switches. Image quality on the webcam might suck, but Gigabyte has packed in an impressive display. The display resolution is limited to 1080p instead of 4K or 1440p.

The Aorus 17G comes with an octa-core Intel Core i7-10875H. Different models feature different graphics cards, but the overall choice is limited to a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, a GeForce RTX 2060, or a GeForce 2070 Super Max-Q. Gigabyte is especially proud of the mechanical keyboard. The 240-Hz screen improves the user experience not only when gaming but also in many other situations.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Gigabyte Aorus 17G is the first gaming laptop with the latest Intel Comet Lake-H processors. The Intel Core i7-10875H is one of the most powerful laptop chips on the market right now. There's no game that won't run like a dream on the 240Hz 1080p display. It is a very clean design, but the large vents at the top of the keyboard interrupted by the huge power button look a little awkward.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous 1080p display
  • Excellent battery life
  • Very upgradable
Cons[**]
  • Thicc gaming performance
  • Below-average speakers
