Dealmaster: Get a Dell laptop with 16GB RAM and a GTX 1060 Max-Q for $880

Ars Technica Technology 9 days ago

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a deal for those in urgent need of a budget gaming laptop: this configuration of Dell's G5 15 notebook with 16GB of RAM and a Nvidia GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU is down to $880 at Walmart. Normally, Dell sells this config closer to $1,100.

The G Series launched earlier this year as the successor to Dell's Inspiron Gaming line. This particular model runs on an Intel Core i5-8300H processor and uses dual storage in the form of a 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD. There's a USB-C port (albeit of the slower Gen 1 variety), along with an HDMI port, Ethernet jack, SD card slot, and three USB 3.1 ports. The keyboard is backlit, and the 15.6-inch IPS display has a 1080p resolution.

Full disclosure: the Dealmaster has not personally tested this notebook, but given that this is a relatively affordable gaming laptop, expect a few compromises. The Max-Q version of the GTX 1060 is strong enough to get through most modern games, but it'll be a hair weaker than the desktop-class card, which itself isn't the highest on Nvidia's totem pole. Reviews around the Web suggest the whole thing is made of a cheapish plastic and that the display is far from special. At close to six pounds, it's not the most portable device either.

But if you're mainly hunting for a good chunk of horsepower for under a grand and can't wait until the inevitable Black Friday sales, this looks to be a good value. And if you don't want to take the plunge, we also have deals on Razer gaming mice, Amazon devices, Samsung microSD cards, and more. Have a look for yourself below.
