Prime Day Steal: Save $300 On Dell’s G5 Gaming Laptop

Dell’s 15-inch G5 gaming laptop pairs long battery life with a sleek dark chassis. While we’ve seen the G5 receive discounts before, this powerhouse of a laptop has rarely been more affordable than it is today. $779 gets you a configuration that features a Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card, a Core i5-8300H CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

Powerful specs like these in a laptop under $800 is seriously impressive. While the last-gen GTX 1060 card isn’t doing the system any favors compared to its latest competitors, attaining a 1080p resolution is effortless.¬†While reviewing the laptop, we found the graphics performance to be middling when playing modern games on ultra. At it’s current price, however,¬† the performance to cost ratio is stellar.

The system’s highlight is its ability to be upgraded with ease. Swap out the M.2 or 3.5-inch storage drive to increase space, or improve performance with more RAM. The G5 lasted a full 6 hours and 17 minutes on our battery test, which is over two hours longer than the average budget gaming laptop.
