Reviews for the Gigabyte G5 GE
The Gigabyte G5 GE is a well-balanced machine that offers a perfect blend of performance, portability, and productivity. There are a few areas that could be improved. We sorely missed the absence of an HDR option for the screen, and we wished it had a better camera, along with some slightly better-tuned speakers. The overall performance and user experience, makes up for these shortcomings. For avid gamers who do not stream and just want to enjoy some of the most popular games at high frame rates without spending too much, the Gigabyte G5 GE, in the configuration we tested, is more than sufficient. Not once during our gaming sessions or testing sessions did we wish, if only this machine had more to offer in terms of performance.

If you’re from coming last year’s model then there’s really nothing here for you. It is those that are looking to get their first gaming laptop but are dead set on keeping iat around that Php50k price range. Besides the CPU performance improvement as well as battery life, the chassis gains a decent and much needed redesign that can be appreciated more by those looking for a smaller design. Its not the smallest laptop but GIGABYTE really packed this one well. Ultimately, the GIGABYTE G5 GE continues the trend of value offering from this line but still maitaining the GIGABYTE touch with decent performance and quality. Its not alone in this space as its biggest rival is fellow Taiwanese giant Acer whose Nitro line-up sits directly side-by-side with the GIGABYTE G5 GE. Nothing really separates the two but in most occassions, GIGABYTE will have store promotions to give their users a free RAM or SSD upgrade, easily bumping performance and value versus Acer.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
