Should this be a factor in my decision? I usually go for AWD cars, but the only one near me with the specs I want is a RWD 3.3.
Does anyone have any feedback on which is preferable for the G70?

Where do you live? Will this be a year-round driver?

I live in cali where AWD isn't really needed. However, I did too many mods and ended up selling my RWD to get an AWD so I can put the power down to the ground. AWD is way faster and way more consistent.

The AWD will "pull" you out of a lot of situations. But if you're stock, the AWD will be a click slower. I live in Texas and I went with AWD and am very happy I did (especially after last winter's snowpacalypse).

AWD, you can pull a fuse to make it RWD.
Really? I never knew that. I'm not particularly interested in disabling mine, but it's still interesting to know.

But is is as efficient as a straight RWD or are you still turning hardware like transfer case gearing?
AWD will never be as efficient as RWD, main reason is the extra weight.

I test drove both versions the day I bought my G70 and I did twice to make sure it wasn't a "placebo" effect.
I decided to pull trigger on the RWD.
I just felt the RWD pulled harder from the straight line.
