Reviews for the Aorus 17G YD

86% Aorus 17G YD in review: Loud gaming laptop with a good mechanical keyboard | Notebookcheck
Gigabyte updates the 17G with the latest technology: A Tiger Lake processor, a GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU, PCI Express 4.0, and Thunderbolt 4. The Aorus 17G YD's highlight is still its good mechanical keyboard.
80% Gigabyte Aorus 17G Review – with Intel Tiger Lake H!

The alternate view is that most connectors should go at the rear and while we disagree, we are open to the point that this is a matter of personal taste. The keyboard and touch pad both work well. The controls feel right, they are precise and responsive and while they certainly click they don’t do it especially loudly. The problem for Gigabyte is that I expect things to be this way, so I consider an unsatisfactory keyboard to be a negative while a good keyboard is just how things ought to be. It is a similar story with the display which is nice and bright, has a good colour range and a seemingly infinite viewing angle with no hint of ghosting or other nastiness. In an ideal world the display would be 1440p however those panels seem to be very thin on the ground so it makes sense for this gaming laptop to pack a 1080p display instead.

The elite Aorus 17G gaming laptop packs a panoply of bleeding-edge tech, including an 11th Generation Core H-Series CPU, but its sheer graphics performance trails that of the Alienware m17 R4.

17.30":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.82 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Aorus:

This company was founded as a subsidiary of Gigabyte in Tawain in 2014. The logo is a falcon head, since the name Aorus is derived from the ancient Egyptian falcon god Horus. According to employees, the first letter of HORUS was changed to "A" to represent the brand as "A team". Aorus primarily produces gaming laptops as well as computer accessories.

Since the market shares are still low, there are also few reviews. However, the products achieve relatively good ratings (as of 2016).


82.75%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
