You might be wondering what the differences are between the Dell G3 and G5 — the Dell G5 has better ports, featuring USB Type C with Thunderbolt-3, allowing the device to be expanded with many adapters and also providing the display output via DisplayPort. The Dell G3 lacks this port.

The Dell G5 also has USB 3.1 ports while the Dell G3 uses a slower USB 3.0 standard. The more astute of you will also realize I'm using the old naming scheme because the new USB naming standards are just confusing..

    I'd much rather have the G3 with 6 cores than Thunderbolt!

    id add this one too:


    1299 after discount, has the best graphics card of the bunch. 1060 (albeit a skimped down version) is significantly better than the 1050ti and graphics card should be taken into highest consideration with laptop purchase (unless u plan to get like an external GPU, but then whats the point go with a desktop??)


    OK, I'm buying one of these. I won't be heavy gaming on this, I just want a future proof machine.

    Looking ideally at i7 (would consider i5), 8gb ram (up to 16gb ram), a SSD boot drive and a 1TB mechanical hard drive, backlit keyboard under 2.5kg if possible.

    I value battery life, no overheating, low fan noise and a machine on the lighter end of the scale.


      if your not gonna do heavy gaming the 1050ti is more than sufficient and can handle stuff like overwatch/apex legends, any esport type games essentially with ease, and triple AAA titles with settings on low/medium settings depending on how demanding the game is (case by case)

      if ur case i would probably go the Dell G3 15 (3579) 1,143.20

      it comes with a 256 ssd boot drive, which is more than sufficient for a boot drive, has the i7 six core cpu (6 cores should give you better longevity) according to the review it is 2.53kg, which is thereabouts.

      you would only have to add an additional 8gb ram (can be done later down the track) and a 1tb 7200 mechanical drive (which u can do yourself when you find a good deal) note that the models that come with 1tb mechanical drives are only 5400rpm, which makes them slow, so i would much rather add a 7200rpm myself


        Thank you for your reply.

        I'm now exploring the Dell XPS with the i7 or i5. They're half the weight and seem to have some decent specs. Only has a SSD drive though.


      Good luck with battery life and low noise with the dedicated graphics card


        Would the XPS be quieter?

        • +2 votes

          You always get lower noise and better battery performance by choosing a laptop without a discrete GPU

          If you want thin and light, with long battery life get the Dell XPS 13 for $1299, it's kitted out with a Core i5 8250U and a longer lasting battery. Posted here as a deal last month

          There is also a core i7 version for a little bit more, but take note it does not increase the CPU Core count, it's still a quad core CPU.

          Take note that the U series processors have a lower boost clock frequency so they do not go as fast as the Core i5's featured in these gaming laptops. And there's also no hexa core


            @scrimshaw: I've just purchased the XPS you linked. It ticks all boxes I wanted, an ultra book was ideally what I wanted in the end.

            I don't really play many games on the laptop, nor do I video edit. This will probably be overkill for what I need. Thanks for all your help.


    Can you really get away with only 8gb these days?


    Does this generation of G5 laptops support charging over the thunderbolt port?

    (My current XPS supports it, as does my work laptop and partner's laptop — and so it's great to just be able to charge any of those three laptops at any of those three locations, without taking chargers everywhere.)
