The Dell G-Series Saga Continues with the G5 15 5587 Review


The G5 15 5587, the next up in line in Dell’s transition into new gaming territory. Previously talked about, was the G3 3579 and G3 3779, both Inspiron ‘inspired’ gaming laptops with specs on a more general playing field. Up in sequence, the Dell G5 15, a 15-inch game machine with Nvidia GeForce graphics climbing up a notch, Gigabit Ethernet, 4K output, and an available touchscreen. This makes space for the G5 15 to run as a higher contender. Both its CPU processor and RAM memory run beastly, with the addition of exceptional IPS picture quality. All of that, and you’ve got some edge when playing your favorite higher-grade games.

Thicker than the .89-inch G3 15 3579, and the same thickness as the G3 17 3779, at .98 inches, the 15-inch IPS G5 weighs 6.28 pounds, and its design has some extra sophistication. It has a smooth black matte finish, a sprinkle of red-colored texture over the Dell logo, as well as along the backlit keyboard and trackpad, which is cumulatively nice-and-easy on the eyes. These features provide more of an obvious gaming vibe here when looking at this model, over the G3 laptops. Yes, Dell maintained the 1080p resolution as default, like the G3s. But it also made good graphics choices to deliver excellence, and you may even upgrade to 4K LCD screen resolution, if you desire.

That GPU, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, is loaded with 4GB of GDDR5 dedicated video memory, and is how this a gamer can truly accelerate graphics. Also offered, is Intel’s Core i7-8750H (up to 3.9GHz Turbo), 16GB of RAM memory, and a dual-storage option, a 512GB SSD, and a 1TB HDD. Achieving connectivity is easy, with USB Type-C for wired options, Thunderbolt 3, 2 USB 3.0 ports, and through Wi-Fi. All make for good endurance firing through the machine, the ultimate need for any higher-end games requiring quick response without any hiccups.

As a successor to the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series, the G5 15 5587 comes with an affordable price to enter the latest entry gaming laptop movement. It, too, is sleek and professional, and provides the correct balance of display for its GPU capabilities. The G5 15 model, in all, is generally well-equipped for a good time, without having to cough up the cost for Alienware gaming laptops, which of course, are worth it if you’ve got the affordability. With a battery life that mediates around 7 hours, that’s pretty good, but for any gaming laptop, it’s going to be a matter of what you’re playing, and for what length of time. With the G5 15, expect to use this machine at medium durability to make sure you get the fluency and speedy graphics you crave.
