Long-lasting gaming laptop.The hardware in the Dell G5 allows for all modern computer games to run smoothly on the 15.6-inch display (FHD, IPS). The configuration is also appealing: SSD + HDD, 8 GB RAM (dual-channel mode is enabled) and Thunderbolt 3. The outstanding battery life is surprising. However, this price level also requires some compromises.
With its diverse G-series (G3, G5, G7), Dell offers gaming laptops that present reasonably priced alternatives to the high-end Alienware gaming laptops. The G5-series aims to cover the midrange segment of the G-series assortment. The review device we were provided with is equipped with a Core i7-8750H processor and the GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. The Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH, the Acer Aspire Nitro 5 AN515-54 and the HP Omen 15 are among its rivals. We will also take the 17.3-inch MSI GL73 8SE into account as a competitor since it's currently the only laptop in our database that shares the same CPU, GPU, and price level with the Dell G5.
