There is definitely plenty of choices out there when it comes to gaming laptops. If you’re after a relatively thin 17-inch gaming laptop with decent specs and great performance, the GIGABYTE AORUS 17G is worth considering. While it did receive an 8.4/10 overall, if you remove the camera and battery scores, this is definitely one decent gaming laptop.

The Aorus 17G is a solid hardware implementation that can achieve excellent performance, thermals, and noise levels once adequately tweaked. It also smartly focuses on the user experience, on features and ergonomics, and not on being ultra-light or ultra-compact, which is my preferred approach on a 17-inch performance notebook. However, the Ai implementation needs more work, and the design and especially the implemented mechanical keyboard will make or break this for most.
