Reviews for the Dell G15 5530, i5-13450HX RTX 4050
Source: Laptop Media
Once again, Dell has produced a controversial gaming laptop. Is it because it doesn’t want to take the storm away from its Alienware brand, which itself is being overshadowed by the ROG and Predator series of ASUS and Acer in terms of popularity? Nevertheless, the G15 5530 is not that bad of an option, if you are looking for a relatively affordable piece of gaming machinery. Let’s start by saying that it lacks a Thunderbolt 4 port and an SD card reader. This, and the all-plastic body is what makes it less expensive. In addition to that, Dell has equipped the laptop with an office keyboard – unlike its more premium G16 7630, which sports a pretty good gaming unit. You know, to take advantage of the fast-paced G-Sync-enabled displays, you need good hardware.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
