The G3, of Dell’s G-Series Gaming Laptops, Right up Your Entry-Level Alley


This past April, Dell did a launch of its G-Series laptops, with affordable enough prices for everyone in mind, starting at just $799. Dubbed the G3, G5, and G7, all three titles are nothing to scoff at. They match Intel 8th Generation CPUs with great graphics features, and all titles have increasingly higher gaming expectations. For Dell, this was, and is, a good business move for the entry-level gaming market. This was the right timing for a change, as the company also made the decision to retire its very own Inspiron gaming line. The new G-Series is Dell’s march into different-leveled gaming rigs, a market that signals more growth with each new product from all other competitive forces. Additionally, this means consumers have more to choose from, without (the elite) Alienware being the only Dell option.

Yes, all the G-Series laptops have many common components, yet for the sake of efficacy, let’s begin with the G3, which comes in both a 15-inch (3579) and 17-inch (3779) option. This is the model we’re talking about when thinking of the most entry-level, starting price. Still, as you will see, all of the G-Series are engineered with discrete graphics and 8th Gen Intel. On the other hand, the G5, and G7 are the more centric models than this model. This model, paneling on its more stylish design than the others, sports a Full HD 1920 x 1080 IPS Anti-Glare LED-Backlit 15.6-inch display. The composition is nice, fit with wide-viewing, in-plane switching for target spotting, and general sharpness- good, considering a 1080p resolution. It’s design also cues up with the previous, more mainstream Inspiron. It has more sleek qualities, like its patterned keyboard, slim profile, etc. Also, keyboard-wise, Dell decided to keep this space darker, apparently to maintain focus on the bright action happening on the LCD screen, as well as incorporating spill resistance, and optional backlighting.

Stuffed inside the slim profile of the G3 3579 15-inch laptop, is both the 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8300H (with 4.0Ghz Turbo), and on the 17-incher, also 8th Gen Intel, but the i7-8750H (with 4.1Ghz Turbo), Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050, along with 4GB GDDR5. Storage is in a fair amount of 1TB HDD (Hybrid Hard Drive) on the 15-inch, and on the 17-inch, a 256GB SSD plus 1TB on the hard drive. RAM memory starts at 8GB of DDR4, to 16GB on the larger model. The integrated 4-cell, 56 Whr battery helps in times of long-termed gaming off the charging port.

There’s Bluetooth 5.0, and really pondering the assistance that Bluetooth provides, this will help while connecting your device for transferring files while needed out and about. Also, for Wi-Fi, the G3 has an Intel Wireless 9462AC. With Windows 10, gamers get the extras involved with 4K gaming, DirectX 12, and a comprehensive streaming experience. Ports and connectivity include the same collection on both models. There are 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-As, an HDMI 2.0 port, a MicroSD card, a headphone/microphone jack, and a PC power jack.

The G3 3579 definitely provides enough expectations to deliver an immersive experience. The CPU processor in the gaming laptop has definitely been shared in many laptops of this caliber. Yet it’s sturdy, running heavy tasks without a hitch. It, in offering a bit more professionalism, and style, also maintains the hardware found in the G5 and G7. It may not be the right fit for surmounting that intense game, nor will it perfect productivity for you, but it could be a welcoming option for building new customer loyalty. Better business means bringing in options that fit all crowds possible, and Dell is succeeding in offering that, especially as of late.
