Introduction to Dell G3 Gaming Laptop
If you are a gaming enthusiast, you might have noticed how costly gaming laptops usually are. Not all of us can afford those high-end laptops.
To target the people who are looking to buy gaming laptops on a budget, various companies regularly release a laptop that features high-end gaming specs at a low price.
This is what Dell has done with its G3 15 gaming laptop. It has targeted the audience who are looking to buy gaming laptops on a budget. When it comes to gaming, Dell is already famous for its Alienware series.
With the Alienware series, Dell has already ensured that it continues to stay in the gaming market for a long time. Now with its budget laptop, let us find out how it stacks up with other laptops at this budget.

It is made of plastic and it would also feel like it when you touch it. There is nothing special about its build quality. It is around 22mm thick and weighs around 2.56 kg.
You can open the laptop’s lid with one hand easily. Its hinges are mounted close to the center. Since it is 2020, it comes with thin bezels as well.
There is a fingerprint scanner as well with the laptop which sits beside the power button. To make things interesting, the laptop comes with a blue-backlit keyboard.
For cooling purposes, the laptop features 2 vents that are located at the backside of the base. Besides the two vents, there are also thick cutouts for the speaker. The laptop features a decent touchpad, which gives the feeling of a budget laptop.
The laptop features a solid selection of ports. On the right side of the laptop, you will find an SD card slot, a pair of 2.0 Type-A USB ports, and a lock slot.
On the left-hand side of the laptop, you will find a power jack, a USB Type-C port, an HDMI port, a USB 3.1 Type-A, Ethernet, and a headphone jack.
If you are wondering that you will get a display of 120Hz at this price, then you would have to be a little disappointed. At a budget of around 80,000, it features a Full HD screen with only 60 Hz of refresh rate.
It becomes a bit disappointing when you play as the graphics don’t work properly for good gaming experience at this price rate.
The laptop features about 232nits of brightness. This means that you can’t expect to have a good experience with its display if you want to use it in a brightly lighted room.
KEYBOARD AND TRACKPAD
Typing on this laptop would definitely give you a smooth experience. The keys of the laptop are adequately placed. You have a fingerprint scanner along with the power button for safety. The touchpad is also spacious and should work just fine. The touchpad supports Windows Precision Touchpad multi-touch gestures for an extra smooth experience.
Usually, gaming laptops do not feature good audio. Not Dell G3 15. It features some of the excellent audio quality for a laptop. When it comes to speakers, you should rest assured that you won’t need an extra pair of speakers.
The speakers of the laptop work just fine. Even when you are playing games, the speakers work just fine. The in-game quality of the games is excellent as well.
PERFORMANCE AND BATTERY
The laptop features a 9th generation Intel Core i7-9750H 2.6 GHz processor which has 6 cores. With this laptop, you get 8 GB of RAM and a 512 GB of a solid-state drive or SSD. There is also 1TB of SATA HDD. When it comes to graphics, Dell has loaded its laptop with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB GDDR5 Graphics.
It performs really well due to its high CPU and graphics. For Netflix enthusiasts, the viewing experience on this device would prove to be rather excellent. You can easily edit photos as well.
There are not many issues with heating as well as it more than manages to keep itself cool. Like all gaming laptops, it doesn’t feature a great battery. With heavy gaming, you should be able to get at least 2 hours of battery life.
When it comes to price, the base model for the laptop comes at around Rs. 64,000. The price goes up to Rs. 80,290. The price of your device will naturally regulate the features that you get on this laptop.

Like with anything, the laptop does have some downfalls. Especially when it comes to screen, 60 Hz seems like a lot less. When you buy a gaming dedicated laptop, you don’t want the display to hurt your experience.
The display could have been vastly improved. Another major turn off for gaming enthusiasts will obviously be the small battery.
If you are a gamer, you will have to forget all about going outside for play. You must have your Dell G3 constantly connected with the sockets otherwise you will just be carrying a plastic box.
Regardless of its demerits, there are some things that cannot be ignored. The laptop will make your everyday work a lot easy when compared to other laptops.
For the price of around 80,000, G3 feels like a good alternative to other laptops. If you are okay with AMD Radeon, you can go for Acer Nitro 5 which will give you the 10th gen Intel Core i7 and comes at a lower price of around Rs. 77,000.
