You’d think that, in the space between Prime Day and Black Friday, the big retailers would take a break on discounts, but you’d be wrong. Now is a great time — maybe the best time — to invest in new tech, including computing equipment. Gamers take note: One of the best gaming laptops from one of the biggest names in computers is on sale. Right now, the Dell G3 15 gaming laptop is . It’s only $750, down from its regular price of $860. That’s a killer deal, available today.
Dell makes computers for everyone, for everything from work to everyday tasks, but one look at the cool, backlit keyboard on the Dell G3 15 and you’ll know it’s for getting your game on. And yet Dell hasn’t gone over-the-top with this laptop’s design. Despite a little chunkiness (a serious gaming laptop is going to have some heft), it carries itself much like a regular laptop.
That said, it’s far from anything regular. The G3 comes ready to play with a 10th Generation Intel Core i5-10300H processor (8MB Cache, up to 4.5 GHz, up to 4 cores), which should provide plenty of zip when handling your favorite games. In terms of memory, it’s competitive, with 8GB DDR4-2933MHz, 2x4G, making sure you can experience games in all their glory and avoid annoying lags or delays. The graphics card is impressive too; it’s equipped with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti 4GB GDDR6, allowing you to play the fastest games at the highest speeds, no sweat.
All this presents itself on a screen that is, in a word, glorious. The 15-inch screen gives way to a narrow, two-sided bezel, allowing you to be mesmerized by the entirety of what’s happening with those pixels, especially with a 60Hz refresh rate.
To top it all off, Dell has loaded its G3 with a turbo-boost. Speed can be everything in the gaming world, literally the difference between virtual life and death, and with its Game Shift feature, inside its Alienware Command Center, Dell has you covered. All you have to do is press Fn+Game Shift Key (or Fn+F7 for non-English keyboards ) for the processor, and its cooling system, to go into overdrive. All done with the craziness? Press Fn+Game Shift Key and go right back to normal. Easy. The Alienware Command Center gives you amazing control over your hardware and software, allowing you to customize how your machine works with each individual game or the other apps that come with Windows Home 10. It really maximizes the laptop’s versatility.
It’s not easy to find an affordable, reliable, gaming laptop, but Dell hits the nail on the head with the Dell G3 15. It can handle the newest games and your workload. Right now, it’s. The G3 is only $750, down from its regular price of $860. But it’s only available today. Try to find this discount later and it could be game over!
