Reviews for the Dell G5 15 5590

83% Dell G5 15 5590 (i7-8750H, RTX 2060, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The hardware in the Dell G5 allows for all modern computer games to run smoothly on the 15.6-inch display (FHD, IPS). The configuration is also appealing: SSD + HDD, 8 GB RAM (dual-channel mode is enabled) and Thunderbolt 3. The outstanding battery life is surprising. However, this price level also requires some compromises.

The best of Dell’s laptops tend to be the very best portable PCs you can buy. We reckon the latest Dell Gaming G5 slots straight into that category. In many regards, it doesn’t set new standards. What it does do, however, is offer a no-nonsense combination of features that actually matter in a gaming portable and then add outstanding battery life into the mix.

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.

2.68 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
