Dell G5 15 5587

With Coffee Lake and a good mid-range GPU, Dell presents the G5 15 as a gaming notebook for the limited budget. It’s not a top-tier gaming laptop since it lacks the fastest video card options like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 or 1080. But, with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (Max Q) 6GB video cards and the 8th generation Intel Core i5-8300H quad-core processor, the Dell G5 5587 still provides excellent performance for gaming, everyday computing, and demanding PC tasks like high-resolution video editing. The design is a matter of taste and probably will not please everyone. The retro appearance of the laptop is because the Dell G5 5587 is not only successor to the Inspiron 7577 but is also based on the same chassis. On the other hand, it is also what makes the Dell G5 15 stand out from the masses of budget gaming notebooks. The device can be ordered in black or red (Beijing Red) color. The Dell G5 comes with another disadvantage from Inspiron 7577. Despite being designed for gaming, the keyboard is definitely not made by gamers. The keys have short travel, while the arrows can make some games feels slightly unpleasant and annoying to play with the keyboard. On the other hand, the user has a big and comfortable NumPad sector, which is ideal for work. At 10.5 x 8.1 cm (4.1 x 3.2 inch), the touchpad offers a comfortably large input area with a matte surface. The touchpad is visually highlighted by a red edge printed on the input area. In terms of its stability, the Dell G5 15 leaves a very good impression. Due to the hinges positioned in the center, the display becomes very stable. A user can open the display with one hand without any problems, and the maximum opening angle is sufficient at 140 degrees. The LG display of our Dell G5 15 5587 is the same as that of the Dell Inspiron 15 7000. With a diagonal of 15.5 inch, the IPS panel offers 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, corresponding to a pixel density of 141 PPI. Dell’s G5 15 5587 display boasts a decent contrast ratio, Full HD resolution and comfortable viewing angles. The Dell G5 15's right side provides full-size HDMI 2.0, Thunderbolt 3 Type-C, a pair of USB 3.0 and an audio jack. Over on the left, there's an SD card reader, a third USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet and a connector for the external 130 W power supply. A solid selection, and the forward-facing stereo speakers, tuned by Waves MaxxAudio Pro, are surprisingly powerful and able to fill a small room with clear sound. In idle operation, the 56 Wh battery lasts for almost 12 hours before the device has to be recharged. However, the battery operation does have a large disadvantage. CPU and GPU are throttled a lot in battery operation. As a conclusion, the Dell G5 15 5587 continues to be a good gaming notebook that appeals to buyers with its attractive price in particular. The performance is good and sufficient enough to be able to play all the current games in their native resolution. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Dell G5 is one of the best-value mid-range gaming laptops on the market, capable of playing any game you throw its way in Full HD. Just bear in mind you’ll have to put up with a bland design and a sub-par display to appreciate this bargain.

Dell Inspiron G5 15 Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Player English
Overall Dell has done a good job with the Inspiron G5 15 15.6” gaming laptop and for the price, it’s certainly good value all round. While the concerns of temperatures and noise are part and parcel of owning a gaming laptop, it’s easier to negate them for bigger issues such as screen quality. The combination of an Intel i5 8300H and NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB is a popular and quality pairing, one which should see you playing newer games at good settings and most importantly, at the 60 fps limit the 15.6” IPS screen is designed for.

Dell G5 15 5587 review – not a bad choice but nothing more than a rebranded Inspiron 7577
Source: Laptop Media English
In our opinion, the pros are far more significant than the cons – firstly, the performance is high thanks to the efficient cooling and this is the most important thing for a laptop in this class. In addition, the chassis is stable and reliable, and the same applies to the cooling system. Furthermore, the screen doesn’t use the eye-harming PWM and you can protect yourself from the blue light emissions with the help of our Health-Guard profile.

Comment

Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q: Efficient high end graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP106 chip as the normal GTX 1060 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 15% lower performance but much lower power consumption. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

8300H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates four processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 4 GHz (3.9 GHz with 4 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. 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.  

8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
