80.1% Dell G3 17 3779 (i5-8300H, GTX 1050, SSD, IPS) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The Dell G3 series offers affordable gaming laptops. We took a careful look at the most affordable Dell notebook with a Coffee Lake CPU and a mid-range GPU. You can find out in our review whether a purchase is worthwhile and if the 17-inch laptop offers any more advantages.
Dell G3 17 3779 review – is this the best value 17-inch laptop for gaming?
Source: Laptop Media English
So, our opinion is that the compromises that Dell has made in order to reduce the price of G3 17 are not worrying perhaps with the exception of the high internal temperatures at high loads. We are not impressed by the build quality but we didn’t expect anything different. Battery life is not great either, considering the fact that there is enough space in the chassis of a 17-inch laptop.
