    What does the "white" mean?

    • +1 vote

      This laptop is the "Alpine White with blue accents" model. Not the black one in the pictures Dell use.

      Youtube "dell g3 15 alpine white 2019" > set filter to this year. You'll find some videos with what it looks like, actually looks really good, better than the black imo. Not sure why Dell doesn't show any images of the white version.

        I'm in the market and from my early research, you're looking at 2 laptops at this price range.

        The Dell G series or the Asus TUF series.

        GTX1050ti is bare minimum. The 1050 is old AF.

        I'd go for at least GTX1650.

        16GB is non-existent at this price but will greatly improve performance.

        The Asus also has a 120hz screen option.

        •  

          thanks mate, useful info. do you have any info on the upgradeability of the TUF and G series? Ram presumably can go to 2x8gb, but what about drives? tia.

      I believe so. I've been looking for a laptop for school around 1k for the past couple weeks. Finally saw this deal and bought earlier today

      Closest I've seen in specs for around this price was the Asus tuf fx505dt which isn't on sale anymore.

      •  

        Thanks for the reply. If Asus tuf fx505dt was on sale around this price, would that be a better system in terms of specs ?

        Also, is it possible to upgrade the RAM on the Dell G3 while purchasing.

        BTW saw this one just now

          They both use a gtx 1650, 8gb ram, but the asus has a R7-3750H cpu, looking at cpu benchmarks the i5 in the dell is 13% faster. Looking at reviews the Battery life for the dell @ 150 nits is around 6 hours 40 minutes. While the asus @ 150 nits is around 3 hours and 56 minutes. But the asus has a 120Hz screen.

          Personally if i had the option between the two i'd take the Dell. But they both have pros and cons as well as a $100 price difference (Speaking of course if they were both currently on sale)

          Unforuntely you cannot upgrade the ram or ssd while purchasing, but i believe you can upgrade them yourself.

            @Jeffry: Both have 8GB RAM but Dell is 2×4gb sticks while the Asus is a single 8gb stick.

            The Dell is dual channel out of the box but you'll have to buy 2x8gb sticks to upgrade.

            The Asus is single channel out of the box but you only need to buy another 8gb RAM stick to upgrade.

        Wrong, been there done that; this laptop is too heavy and funky for school.
        Best to get a light weight business laptop (Latitude, ThinkPad, Elitebook), it'll last you your degree and then some and it will be so much better on your back.

        I had a gaming laptop ($1500+) which barely made it to second year. Bought a ThinkPad T430 refurbished for $500, and the machine still works to date!

          I had an old asus m60 when i was in uni and the thing was like a brick - well on its way to 2kg with the massive powerbrick - which you needed to carry because it only got 2hrs battey life with an i7 desktop processor in it.

          If the needs are just notetaking and no specific apps, i'd go the lenovo 14in chromebook - all day battery, 1080p screen, keyboard looks decent, weights about a kg and cheap and usb-c and powerbank rechargeable. I wouldn't go for a surface as tables in lectures would be too small for the kickstand style.

          If you wanted a single machine and wern't gaming i'd go for a business style machine from lenovo - for around $600 you can get something with a 1080p screen, i5 and 8gb ram.

          If you were gaming i'd buy this dell and splurge an extra $400 for the chromebook to take to uni - gaming laptops will shit you to tears when used at school.

            @Wilburre: Agree mostly, apart from the last bit. And to add to the pain, this laptop with charger will be more than 2.5Kg which is a lot.
            Buy a second hand refurbished business laptop (if you find something with 8th gen CPU they'll be very snappy and cool). You can get one under $1000, I recently bought a T480s for $700 cash, and it is an amazing machine, can get 6 hours plus battery life and when plugged in to charger it performs very well, this is the perfect Dev/Student machine.
            Then Spend $500-$600 on a second hand PC and a GPU (don't fall for gaming trap, just buy a PC with good spec and add a GPU to it). You can easily do an 8gb system with 6th gen CPU and a 1060/1070 second hand for under $600. This will beat any gaming laptop.

              @OpayuOnam: agreed - just made the assumption that they were only looking for laptops. cheap desktop such as the one from techfast for under $700 would be best.

    Also an upgrade to the CPU/Ram for ~$280 more. Which is the same specs as the XPS15

    The most important spec on a laptop and it's not even listed: battery life?

  •  

    Hi OP, if you seen any XPS15 deals, can you please let us know? thanks!
