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.

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).


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
