Dell G7 7588 – The best Budget Gaming Laptop?

Dell G7

Dell has been doing a great job when it comes to gaming laptops and budget gaming laptops. The company had announced the Dell Inspiron 7577 last year. The laptop made it to the top of the list for almost every tech reviewer. This year, Dell released a predecessor of the 7577 and is being called the Dell G7 7588. The G7 doesn’t come under the Inspiron series anymore, it is a separate lineup by Dell and has improved quite a bit. Let’s have a comprehensive review of what it brings to the table.

Dell G7 – Aesthetics and Design

The Dell G7 has two color options, the first if a combination of white and blue and the second one is a combo of black and red. The white and blue have managed to attract many people. The outside of the laptop has the premium soft touch to it.

The Air vents are designed aerodynamically at the back of the laptop to vent out the extra heat during extreme gaming sessions. Overall, the laptop manages to remain cool always and doesn’t allow for any throttling.

Dell G7 – Build Quality

Build quality is improved from last year, it was great last year but it has been improved this year. The chassis has been reinforced not too much flex as you press down on the keyboard deck which is outstanding for a laptop that is predominantly plastic.

The screen hinge has never been problematic even on the 7577, but it is even better this year. It feels stiffer and more robust than the previous version. The keyboard lighting blue and we are glad they didn’t go with the red light because that would have destroyed the aesthetics on this. It would have been great if it had a white back-lit because blue is a little more fatiguing on your eyes. Imagine using this on max brightness and using it late at night, it would be a little tiring.

Dell G7 – Performance and Display

The screen now has slightly smaller bezels from the previous version and the panel is a much nicer one. The AUO63ED come with 60 hertz frequency out of the box, but it can theoretically be overclocked to a 100fps, but again that will void the warranty.

The ports on the laptop are standard with an addition of the thunderbolt 3 port which supports 4 lanes of PCIe. The back of the laptop is protected with a single screw and is extremely easy to access and upgrade.

The performance on the laptop is great it comes with a 6-core i7-8750H 8th generation processor. An awesome choice for multi-core gaming experience and you can pick from one of the three graphic units, namely the GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti and the GTX 1060 Max-Q.

Processor Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core Memory 8GB/16GB DDR4
HDD 256GB SSD OR (128GB SSD+1TB HDD) Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
Display 15.6” Full HD IPS, Anti-Glare Battery 56 WHr
Connection Bluetooth/ Wi-Fi / USB OS 64-bit Windows 10 Pro


Dell G7 – Conclusion

The keyboard on the G7 is decent especially considering the price tag on the machine. The touch pad has not changed it has the Windows Precision Drivers with a plastic surface, the tracking experience is nice and the button mechanics are nice.

The only downside to this machine is the form factor and the size of the laptop. The bezels are still big and the overall size is also huge. In a time when companies are moving towards a smaller sized gaming laptop this one is taking another route.
