Gaming machines are Windows computers that actually work. This is a very solid, sleek, fast laptop... So if you are buying this gaming laptop because the usual productivity-focused laptops are generally garbage, go for it. If you are actually buying this for gaming, I would DEFINITELY spring for the i7 version, since it has an Nvidia 1050 ti instead of base 1050, has 10x faster multi-threaded CPU performance, and it comes with more RAM and a small SSD as standard. That said, if the SSD uses the 2.5 inch drive bay, you're going to have to remove it for more storage and buy an m.2 SSD. Overall, this is a really great and satisfying laptop and I'm glad I bought it.
With the Dell G3 17 3779, the manufacturer has an affordable gaming notebook in its portfolio that can become part of the shortlist. The newest Coffee-Lake processors can be selected, and with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, Dell also uses a decent graphics card. For the requested sales price of 799 Euros (~$937), you also get 8 GB of RAM and a storage solution with a combination of an SSD and HDD. With this, the 17-inch notebook offers a very good basis for entry into the world of gaming. The processor offers a decent performance without taxing the device in battery operation... The case temperatures are a little high in our opinion. Due to the heat build-up, there is thermal throttling for the CPU, but fortunately this does not have too extreme of an effect. An Intel Core i7-8750H might have a harder time here. Finally, we can say that Dell offers a decent gaming device with the G3 17 3779 without leaving a massive hole in your household budget.
