Unfortunately, the prices of graphic cards are still sky-high, and they’re super hard to find, so if you’re trying to upgrade your gaming rig, you’re out of luck. There are, however, quite a few gaming laptop deals going on, which can be a good alternative if you just want to dive into your favorite games.
Dell is offering the slick and powerful G5 15 gaming laptop for $700, which is $340 off the regular price. Inside is a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 processor (up to 4.5GHz), 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with 6GB of dedicated GDDR6 VRAM. That’s enough power to handle most games on medium to high settings, except for a handful of the latest titles.
Cooped up at home? Now is the perfect time to play games, and with the Dell G5 15 gaming laptop, you can do that just about anywhere. It has a large 15.6-inch Full HD display, with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a 120Hz refresh rate.
In the Digital Trends review of the Dell G5 SE, which has exactly the same display, Luke Larsen said the refresh rate is “fantastic” and “makes for incredibly smooth actions, whether that’s the movement of the cursor or high frame rate while gaming.”
The G5 15 is powered by an Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. It also includes a 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe solid-state drive with fast boot times and speedy in-game load times. Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (2×2) and Bluetooth offer plenty of connectivity options. Killer gigabit ethernet will deliver some crazy internet speeds for lag-free online gaming, too.
The four-zone RGB backlit keyboard offers some badass lighting options. It even keeps the WASD keys lit so you can strafe, scroll, and run even in minimal lighting conditions. Dual speakers with Nahimic 3D audio keep it real crisp, loud, and immersive.
You can get your hands on the Dell G5 15 gaming laptop for $700, which is $340 off the full price ($1,040). You get free shipping with that, too, but it’s a limited deal, and it’s almost claimed in full, so hurry. The deal isn’t guaranteed unless you complete your order.
