Dell G15 gaming laptop is 30% off

The G15 laptop series has always been the workhorse for DELL in the gaming laptop department. That’s because it has a very balanced ratio between features and price, hence its popularity amongst PC gamers. Now, the balance is a bit broken because Dell has lessened the cost by $300 for G15, so now it is available at just $700 instead of previous amount which was $1,000.

Such a price reduction cannot be ignored and is particularly appealing for gamers who are looking to save money.

Why should I buy the DELL G15 gaming laptop?

The main star of this gaming laptop is the RTX 4050 graphics card. Yes, it may be considered as an entry-level GPU but it has some serious power inside. This will allow you to enjoy DLSS 3, which increases your frame rate in games that support it.

Moreover, it performs well for 1080p gaming. The display’s size is 15.6 inches and it has FHD resolution plus a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz which can give you an excellent gaming experience with smooth visuals that are very engaging; however getting up to this high level might mean turning off some graphical options in your game settings.

If you’re in a mood to spend more, then going for an RTX 4060 will not just improve your graphical quality but also give you a better CPU at $200 additional cost. Talking about CPUs, in this configuration, the G15 is fitted with an 13th gen Intel Core i5-13450HX CPU , which is a powerful option from mid-range that can handle most games and daily tasks effortlessly.

Paired with 16GB of DDR5 RAM, gaming experience will be smooth. Also, having 1TB storage is quite enough for your games and media. But still, it is advisable to look for a deal on an external hard drive to get more space.

Now, we move to the elephant in the room – battery life. It is common knowledge that gaming laptops do not have great stamina when it comes to battery life and this holds true for the G15 as well. On a good day, you should anticipate using it for somewhere around 3-5 hours which falls within what’s expected from a typical gaming laptop of its generation.
