Gigabyte AORUS 15G (2021) Review Rundown
The 2021 AORUS 15G offers excellent performance from its Intel Core i7-10870H processor. It has a colorful, 15.6-inch, 240Hz panel packed into a rather small chassis. On the downside, it suffers from short battery life, dim display, and poorly placed webcam.

Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Gigabyte Aorus 15G has an Intel Core i7-10870H processor, 32GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and a 15.6-inch, 240Hz display. Tucked away in the belly of the beast lies an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q GPU with 8GB of VRAM. The keyboard is something you could get used to, but it's way too squishy for a gaming laptop.
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Last summer, our test unit's predecessor made a good impression with its good performance, attractive design and several special characteristics such as its mechanical keyboard. Instead of the silvery gray metal case, our Aorus test unit is now wrapped in dark plastic. Gigabyte has removed Thunderbolt support, which means that the USB-C port now "only" offers USB 3.2 Gen 1 speeds.
Reviewers from Theverge have found the following[***]:
Gigabyte's Aorus 15G is the rare gaming laptop you can actually keep safely on your lap. It runs most games beyond 60 frames per second, crossing the bar for reliably smooth gameplay. This isn't Gigabyte's top-of-the-line model, but it's close.
