4.3 / 5 stars (51 reviews) Amazon's Choice - Best laptop at this price point, bar none
Latest review: April 5, 2019 | Model: Dell G5 15 G5587-7866BLK-PUS
Great little laptop for the price. I bought this to replace an older, aging Asus ROG laptop and I absolutely love using it! It starts up fast, plays all my games great, and is nearly half the weight of my old gaming laptop! The fingerprint scanner works every time and is a much appreciated addition to the computer. The keyboard deck is a firm aluminum, which makes typing and using the laptop in normal use feel very premium, despite the rest of the chassis being made of plastic, though the plastic certainly does not feel cheap. The computer has a very professional look to it with a hint of that gamer charm in the red accents and keyboard. I personally find it to be a very tasteful and minimalist design, as opposed to the more flashy gaming laptops on the market, though others may disagree... You're not going to find another laptop at this price point that delivers what this one does. I paid $899 for mine, the other laptop I was looking at was the Acer Predator Helios 300, which packs a more powerful processor but does not have the SSD and HDD included, only the SSD. I would have had to pay another $50-60 for an additional HDD, along with the $1000 price tag of the Helios. This Dell saved me nearly $200 and delivers all the performance I need without needing to buy more stuff along with it. If you're looking for a gaming laptop that won't break the bank while delivering excellent performance, this is the one to get.Reviewed by: Joey | Read Dell G5 15 5587 reviews...
2.5 / 5 stars - The Dell G5 15 Gaming has one too many flaws, including middling performance, a dull display and bad speakers -- all packed into a thick body.

Good battery life in a gaming laptop is quite a rare feature, and it's always nice to have a solid keyboard, but the Dell G5 15 Gaming sacrifices too much in every other area. It's too big and underpowered, and the fact that I can't adjust the fans is frustrating. On top of that, the laptop's low-quality sound and dim display make gaming unenjoyable... Due to its significant drawbacks, we simply can't recommend the Dell G5 15. You can do better for a mainstream gaming laptop.Reviewed by: Rami Tabari | Read full review...
