Dell G3 15 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Dell G3 might just be the best-value gaming laptop that you can buy. At under £1000 it can play just about every game in your Steam library in Full HD

Astonishing performance considering the price ; Can run almost every PC game in Full HD ; Never gets too hot or loud ; Long-lasting battery life

Sub-par display ; Dated design ; No Chroma keyboard option

For cheap, on-the-go gaming, the Dell G3 15 is an indisputable bargain.

Dell G3 15 Gaming Laptop review: A budget gaming laptop that plays it safe

 

Dell's G3 15 is versatile performer thanks to the GeForce GTX graphics, but don't expect a great deal of excitement

Good trackpad ; Long battery life ; Easy upgrade path ; Handy SD slot and Gigabit Ethernet port

Hugely disappointing display ; Lacks USB-C ports ; Poor quality keyboard

This isn’t enough to earn the G3 Gaming an award – the screen is too big a letdown – but if every penny counts, and a GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card will deliver enough acceleration for the games you’re interested in, then don’t write it off. Yes, it’s...

Dell G3 15 Gaming Laptop Review: Strong Battery, Weaker Display

 

The Dell G3 15 Gaming laptop enables gamers to play on a budget without suffering from delayed or stuttering graphics. And with a fantastic battery life and decent performance, its usefulness goes beyond PC games. Dell claims the laptop delivers...

The Dell G3 15’s display leaves something to be desired, but strong performance makes it a respectable budget-level gaming machine.

Dell G3 Gaming Laptop review

 

Decent build quality ; Great value ; Fairly thin and light ; Good performance ; Improved battery life

Bland design ; Slow storage options ; Display’s colors are dull, inaccurate

Dell G3 15 (3579) review: This budget gaming laptop makes the most of what it’s got

 

It's not the thinnest, lightest, or most powerful gaming laptop on the market, and we wish its 15.6-inch screen were brighter. But for a budget-friendly price, the GTX 1050 Ti-powered Dell G3 15 packs an impressive punch.

Impressive CPU performance for a budget gaming laptop ; Solid GTX 1050 Ti gaming visuals ; Decent battery life

Disappointingly dim display ; Sub-60 fps frame rates for some graphically intense games

Dell breaks out updated budget gaming laptops as G series

 

Ditching the Inspiron family name, Dell's budget gaming laptops get a line of their own, some redesigns and Intel Core eighth-generation options.

Consumer review (currys.co.uk)

DELL G3 15 15.6" Intel® Core™ i7 GTX 1050 Ti Gaming Laptop - 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD

 

As a gaming laptop, this has so far worked great. Good GPU and Proccessor. SSD is really nice but could be bigger

Heavy for a laptop and extremely poor battery life. However, thats to be expected for a gaming laptop

DELL G3 15 15.6" Intel® Core™ i7 GTX 1050 Ti Gaming Laptop - 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD

 

Graphics are good, sleek and easy to use

It's already a little bit slow (freezing sometimes) and I have McAffee included so it shouldn't be that I have a virus already. But most of the time it's fine, quick and easy to use
