Budget-friendly Dell G15 gaming laptop with an Intel Core i5-11260H and RTX 3050 is back on sale for US$588
When it comes to budget-friendly 15-inch gaming laptops, prospective buyers can choose from numerous capable machines made by respectable companies nowadays, and the Dell G15 may be one of the most prominent options in this crowded segment. Thankfully, bargain hunters who are looking for one of the most affordable Intel configurations of this gaming notebook can now take advantage of an enticing deal at Dell’s official online store.
The Austin-based PC manufacturer currently offers the aforementioned Dell G15 with the Intel Core i5-11260H hexa-core processor, 8 GB of expandable DDR4 memory as well as an M.2 SSD with 256GB of storage capacity for just US$588 including free shipping. This model is further equipped with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU with 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, while the 15-inch display has a quick refresh rate of 120 Hz which makes it suitable for fast-paced action games. This gaming laptop is usually priced quite a bit higher, Amazon for example sells a very similar configuration of the Dell G15 for US$879.
In our comprehensive review of a slightly older but fairly similar Intel version of the Dell G15, we found that the gaming notebook is "a well-balanced overall package" with a stable performance. Furthermore, it has a solid battery life of up to 6 hours when surfing on a Wi-Fi network, but we also like the fact that there is room for a second M.2 SSD and more RAM on this particular model. In comparison to two previous and quite popular gaming laptop deals from last month, this RTX 3050 configuration of the Dell G15 is even more affordable, which turns this deal into an appropriate purchase for gamers who are on a rather tight budget.
