A capable and affordable gaming laptop, the Dell G5 15 SE checks plenty of the right boxes. But some questionable design and feature choices keep it from standing out.

Overall, the Dell G5 15 SE is a really great laptop for its $1200 (well under $900, for a Ryzen 5 4600H-based system) retail price. We asked more out of it in this review than we might have otherwise, just because Ryzen 4000 is a new platform technology. Still, it's impressive to see what happens with this machine when we cut out one of its key selling points. If you buy one of these budget gaming beasts, let it be for its outstanding performance value in games using its discrete graphics and its outstanding world-beating processor power, not because you might want to play games and hobble its performance for the sake of a little extra battery life.

The Dell G5 15 SE (2020) is a great mainstream gaming laptop thanks to its wild CPU performance, awesome battery life and bright 15.6-inch display. However, its GPU could certainly have been stronger, and no one wants a chunky chassis or shrill speakers.

Overall, we think Dell hit it out of the park with the new G5 15 SE. This all-AMD budget blockbuster has all of the gaming essentials: a fast processor, a powerful GPU, and a 144 Hz display. Extra features like the RGB backlit keyboard and eye-catching glittery lid give it a bit of a gamer motif that might look a little out of place in a business meeting, but it's subdued enough that we would personally have no issues toting this thing around. Gamers on a budget who want class-leading mobile CPU performance with plenty of graphics and gaming chops should put the Dell G5 15 SE on their short list.
