Dell G3 15 3500: For everyday gaming
In addition to all the super-slim, gigantic and super-design gaming notebooks, there are also some refreshingly subtle to classic-looking models on the market. The Dell G3 15 is one of these, which also comes up with the odd decorative strip, but otherwise presents itself as reserved as possible.
Dimensions and weight are in line with what you would expect from a laptop equipped with Nvida GeForce RTX 2060, an Intel Core i7-10750H and 16 GB RAM. In addition, the case is made of robust plastic, which gives the G3 15 a good level of stability. At 2.6 kilograms, this notebook is therefore not particularly light, but its 2.2 centimetre thick case also offers sufficient space for maintenance work.
There are two memory slots that can be freely filled by the user, and the second SSD slot for mass storage in M.2 format will probably not remain unused for long either. The interior of the Dell G3 15 3500 can be completely exposed by removing the base plate. This is a bit fiddly, but no further disassembly measures are necessary.
The connectivity is also well equipped with GigabitLAN, SD card reader and Thunderbolt 3. In contrast to this, however, two old-fashioned USB 2.0 ports are still installed. Dell doesn't get any record performance out of the hardware either, but reliably moves around the average of the competition.
What all this entails in detail, we show in our detailed test report on the Dell G3 15 3500.
