The AORUS 15G from Gigabyte and it’s had a pretty major redesign from the previous year’s model. The main feature about this device is its keyboard. This has a new mechanical keyboard that’s running brand-new Omron switches. The mechanical keyboards are not good so far in the market but this laptop in its long run will make you fall in love with the keyboard. The vast majority people will really like this keyboard.
The reason why it’s so hard to get used to is because of 3 things.
The first is the kind of elevation of the keys. When you have a mechanical keyboard on a gaming laptop you can’t make the keys pop up above the kind of rim of the device right. Otherwise when you close the screen it would just crush the keys or depress them into the screen. That’s not how this could be done so they have to sync them in. But they’re trying to give you a lot of key travel at the same time. So these go down two and a half millimeters which is a lot for a gaming laptop.
The second is that the layout of this keyboard like the actual physical layout, like the location of the keys is fine. This is like a kind of standard layout but there’s a pretty sizable number pad on the right. And these keys on the number pad are full size. It’s this super packed keyboard with a lot of keys on this thing in a relatively small space and everything just gets squished down.
It might take some time to get used to the spacing before you could able to type on this comfortably. The last thing that you have to get used to is the actual switches themselves. These Omron switches are different from anything else you’ve typed on. They immediately make you feel nice. They feel sturdy and feels clicky, it’s a nice solid keyboard but it’s just a different sensation than any other laptop.
All three of these things made this a really steep learning curve. But once you get used to it it’s a kick-ass keyboard.
