Reviews for the Gigabyte G5 KE

83% Gigabyte G5 KE Review: A Budget RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop Offering
Source: Think Digit English
The G5 KE honestly has just about everything you might be looking for in a budget gaming laptop. We actually have no qualms about recommending this laptop as a solid entry point gaming laptop if you’re looking for a 3060 option. Of course, there is also the G5 ME, a 3050Ti option if you’re looking for an even cheaper alternative, however you’ll also miss out on the Thunderbolt 4 port among other things.
