Dell G3 17 3779 review – is this the best value 17-inch laptop for gaming?

 

Many gamers, especially those who play strategies, MOBA, or RPG games, prefer 17-inch laptops instead of those with smaller screens. Although the resolution is not the same, 17-inch panels give a b…

If you do not use with external monitor, that is a perfect laptop. If you want to use with external monitor choose another model.

Graphics driver crashes if you use it with external monitor. It was reported to DELL long time ago but there is no update. Still the same problem comes out. After 3 weeks I gave up, it was wasted time

V fast processor, good graphics card, overall great laptop

Trackpad is somewhat unresponsive and sometimes cannot differentiate right and left clicks (however this is irrelevant to me as I have a mouse)

Big massive screen.

It randomly freezes and there's nothing I can do apart from force shutting it down by holding the power button.

Screen is very sharp. Much better than the brand new Lenovo 330 (which failed within the first 24 hours). Dual drives work well. Programs run from SSD and files sit on HDD. Wasn't sure about this before buying, but works really well. 17 inch screen is...

Battery Life - Just feels a let down considering how good everything else is. 4-5 hours is using for general applications. 3-4 hours if multitasking / watching films. Don't use it for gaming but suspect that would be worse again. Num Lock - No...

DELL Loki G3 17 17.3" Intel® Core™ i7 GTX 1050 Ti Gaming Laptop - 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD, Black

 

Overall a brilliant laptop and recommend to anyone who needs a powerful laptop.

Battery doesn’t last too long but is good for being a gaming laptop.

I like the finger print log in. After one month of use, it still runs smoothly and quick.

Extremely loud fan when playing games. The screen looks dull and my brain had to get used to the new, poor colours. The speakers are not very loud and it's even worse when the fan gets going. Annoying keyboard, sometimes you thought you pressed the key...

Its quick. It looks great. Only has a slight lag issue on the most recent games if playes with the highest graphic option. But otherwise its great and well worth its price.

There is a power saver issue that does mean the screen sims when it's on power saver and there's no easy way to turn that off. I think that is more of a windows issue than the laptop itself though.
