Over the years, gaming laptops have slowly made their way into the mainstream. And now, they have started to become one of the most sought out gaming equipment. Yet, the incredibly comfy and mobile device also comes with a downside; its high price. Thus, for a while, gaming laptops were out of reach for many. However, with the release of G5 15, Dell is aiming to make gaming laptops more accessible.
Dell G5 15 2020: Release date & pricing
Dell has already launched the laptop in the Indian and overseas markets. And as of now, the product starts at Rs. 82,950.
Dell G5 15 2020: Design
Despite being a gaming laptop, the G5 15 2020 looks and feels like a multipurpose device. However, weighing at 2.34 kg, it weighs quite heavily. The display hinges at the center and flanking it are two output vents. As for the chassis, it’s made out of plastic. Overall, the design quality is aesthetically pleasing.
Dell G5 15 2020: Specs
G5 15 2020 comes in quite a few variants. However, in this article, we’re covering the base model. Therefore, it has a 15 inch 1080p IPS panel display; it also comes with a 60 Hz refresh rate. While it’s not the best, the display does offer good color correction and brightness.
The keyboard and trackpad combo is also decent. However, interestingly enough, the touchpad, although easily controllable, is positioned in an odd place.
In regards to the speakers, the audio is clean and clear. The laptop also comes with a fingerprint scanner and a 720p webcam.
And as far as ports are concerned, Dell has spared no expense. On the device’s left side are HDMI 2.0, mini DisplayPort, Ethernet, charger input, SuperSpeed USB 3.2 Gen 1 port, and a USB Type-C connector. And the right side features the headset jack, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and a full-sized SD card reader. It also supports the latest 5.1 Bluetooth connectivity.
Dell G5 15 2020: Performance
Intel’s 10th Gen Core I5 processor powers the base variant. It also comes with 8 GB Ram. Instead of a Hard drive, it is coupled with 512 GB SSD. And Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1650Ti is its graphics unit.
For its price range, it is an incredible model. However, bear in mind that the GPU is not made for intensive gaming. Although it will get the job done, games that demand high graphics power will have difficulty running. Apart from gaming, the laptop is suited for work or just casual entertainment as well. The only downside of it is the battery life, which is around 5 hours.
If you’re looking for a laptop for your work and gaming needs at a medium-range, we suggest you go for it.
