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.

It’s not the thinnest, lightest, or most powerful gaming laptop on the market, and we wish its 15.6-inch screen were brighter, but for just $750, the GTX 1050 Ti-powered Dell G3 packs an impressive punch.

Bottom line, it’s hard to recommend the G3. Unless you’re really need the specific looks, I’d stay away. If you do want a professional looking machine, I’d wait for other models like Asus or HP or go with an eGPU setup. Alternatively, increase the budget.

Dell G3 15 3579

The Dell G3 series laptops have another new member - the light and stylish G3 3579. The gaming laptops in the G3 line usually weigh less and look better than those from Dell's G5 and G7 lines. This time, the newest member also boasts a better cooling system than its predecessors. This version of G3 3579 comes with a Full HD IPS 15.6" screen display, and it runs on an i5-8300H Coffee Lake CPU, 4 GB of RAM (there is also an 8 GB RAM variant), a GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB RAM graphics card, and a 1 TB HDD of internal storage. The selling points of the latest G3 model seems to be its chic aesthetic and its slimmer built. It measures at 380 mm x 258 mm, and with 22.7 mm height and 2.5 kg weight, it is one of the thinnest gaming laptops in the market. This laptop is very suitable for those who are searching for a gaming laptop with a more professional touch as compared to the more traditional and bulky gaming laptops. The fact that the G3 model has similar hardware specifications as its big brothers, the G5 and G7, is a definite bonus. The G3 3579 performs quite well with the i5-8300H processor and the GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. The computing processes are also suitably complemented by the adequate 4 GB of DDR4 RAM. It is by no means a very powerful gaming laptop, but it should run most AAA games in at least medium settings just fine. Unfortunately, the screen suffers from poor color accuracy and low brightness. Now, let's move on to the build quality of the Dell G3 3579. While the laptop looks pretty modern and should suit a young professional in a business setting, the build quality is not the best of the crop. For one, the whole body of the laptop is made from plastic, and it feels like it. Having said that, the overall aesthetic of the laptop does not ‘look’ plasticky or cheap. This 15.6" laptop also comes with a full-sized keyboard, and the keys are backlit too. The keys also require a little more pressure for its handling or typing, but it shouldn't be a problem for most of the users. The G3 3579 comes equipped with three USB 3.1 ports, an SD card reader, an HDMI 2.0 port, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a headphone/mic combo port, dual-band WiFi chip, and Bluetooth 5.0. This stylish gaming laptop is also available in 3 gorgeous colors - Liquorice Black, Alpine White and Recon Blue. While this laptop is an excellent purchase for its low budget price, it can hardly satisfy the 'gaming needs' of a hardcore gamer or be classified as a full gaming laptop. It is more suitable for the casual gamers who do not see the need for a high-end gaming laptop. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Value-oriented. The new Dell G series caters to gamers on tighter budgets who may find the Alienware series to be out of reach. While core performance remains intact, the cut corners for this inexpensive offering add up quickly.
80% Dell G3 15 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Dell G3 15 is a lot better than you might give a sub £1000 gaming laptop credit for. If you’re after something which can handle some of the best PC games in recent years at a fair old clip and you’re not bothered about pushing the settings all the way up to max, then this is a great choice. Issues with the screen mean that it’s not great for watching media, or playing games where there’s a lot of darkness and shadows on the screen. But if you’re a thrifty gamer and you can live with those limitations, then the Dell G3 15 is an absolute bargain.

Overall, Dell G3 15 is a decent budget gaming laptop. And it is priced reasonably for its specifications. But is it perfect? The answer would be near-perfect. Like every other product, Dell G3 15 has its own strength and weaknesses. The laptop is sturdy and bulky at the same time. It has thick bezels around the display, which is glare-proof.

Dell G3 15 3579 review – great performance at a reasonable price
Source: Laptop Media English
Overall, there isn’t much to be said about the Dell G3 15 3579. It didn’t surprise us with anything special, however, it also didn’t let us down on any occasion. It has a decent cooling system thus good performance. Battery life is excellent providing 5-6 hours of browsing and watching videos and almost two hours of gaming, although we would recommend carrying the charger when gaming.

The Dell G3 is for that gamer who has just discovered the joy of PC gaming, but wants to appear subtle about it. Dell’s clean, understated laptop is as good as any other entry-level gaming laptop out there but is a tad expensive.

Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware.

The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
