Reviews for the Dell G15 5530
The Dell G15 5530 now offers Intel Raptor Lake-HX options and positions itself as a capable upper mid-range gaming laptop. While the Core i7-13650HX and RTX 4060 combo augurs well for 1080p Ultra gaming, the G15 5530 has to contend with several compromises in order to keep the price competitive and distinguish itself from its premium Alienware brethren.

The base model of the Dell G15 has immediate appeal for bargain hunters, and its specs may satisfy casual gamers, though again we'd urge the step up to the $799.99 configuration. Its GeForce RTX 3050 is still capable enough for 1080p gaming, though it's on the bottom rung of the last generation, which won't leave you in the best place long term. For anyone looking for a more potent yet still budget-friendly option, however, this laptop is shockingly limited in its configuration options. The next CPU, GPU, and storage options are tied together, making the G15 leap from $800 to $1,500-plus if you want more power. The resulting performance is admirable, but you can find better options for less, led by the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 8.

The G15 is a good balance of price versus performance: it has enough gaming and processor performance to manage modern games but without the wallet-busting expense of its cousins like the Alienware M18. You get excellent gaming performance for the price, plenty of storage space, and a fast processor. What you don’t get is much in the way of expandability: the configurable memory maxes out at 16GB, the SSD storage at 1TB, although both can be expanded with an aftermarket upgrade. Oh, and the keyboard really isn't great, plus the design feels a little clumsy. None of that is likely to be a problem for most gamers, though: the Dell G15 is more than adequate for modern games – easily hitting the 165fps of this Full HD display in many cases – and therefore represents excellent value for money in a market where the competition often costs much, much more.

From the funkier design to the best-in-class CPU and GPU performance, the Dell G15 5530 is not just for gamers. In fact, this CPU-bound machine could also be used by content creators for tasks like video rendering, 3D visualization, and more. Overall, as a package, Dell has produced an excellent mid-range gaming laptop in the form of a G15 5530. Apart from performance, the catchy design also makes it one of the best mid-range gaming laptops around Rs 1,50,000 price mark in India.

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.
