The Eluktronics Mech-15 G3R offers higher storage capacity, a higher resolution display, and a better GPU variant, making it well-suited for graphics-intensive tasks and gaming. However, it's less portable due to a slightly heavier build, yet it provides a higher battery life compared to the Gigabyte Aorus 5, which can be beneficial for extended use without charging. On the other hand, the Gigabyte Aorus 5 has a higher screen refresh rate, offering smoother visuals useful for fast-paced gaming, and is slightly more portable. Both have comparable CPUs, RAM, and are premium priced for their offerings. Assess your priorities in terms of screen quality, portability, battery life, and storage needs to make your choice.

WePC

Aaron Ritchie | September 2022
"Everything considered, the XMG Neo 15 (Mech-15 G3R) with RTX 3070 Ti is a great gaming performer. The combination of the Ti graphics card with the new Intel 12th gen CPU is enough to go toe-to-toe, and even slightly pull ahead of the RTX 3080 in most titles, though on games with Ray-Tracing enabled, particularly with graphics set to the maximum and on higher resolutions, the additional VRAM of the RTX 3080 makes a big impact, and the 8GB RTX 3070 Ti machine simply can’t compete, even with the more powerful processor."

Can Buy or Not

Vincent Chang | June 2022
"The Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 is a capable mainstream gaming notebook that will run the latest PC games with aplomb. However, it's not your stereotypical flashy gaming PC. Gigabyte has added some interesting tweaks. For example, the webcam placement and its Microsoft Azure AI tool — to automatically switch between power modes — are unusual for this genre. But more importantly, the pricing is fairly competitive and reasonable."
