I would recommend this [Dell Inspiron] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CD3MRZD/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) because it has a great balance between value for money, battery life, and very good performance, here is a little detailed review of it:

Screen hinge in the center, which makes the display very stable.

You can open the display with one hand without any problems.

Comes with 3 USB and 1 USB type C that supports Thunderbolt.

Comes with Intel Wireless-AC 9560 which promises 1.7Gb/s but only delivers 485MBit/s (shouldn’t be an issue unless you have such a very high speed and the need for it).

Easily upgradeable since you only need to remove a single screw to access the back of the laptop to replace/upgrade ram and storage.

Comes with chiclet keyboard with average sized keys.

The typing noises is not audible (except for the space key).

The touchpad is large and defined by red accent, the keys (left, right) are in the touchpad itself (not separate keys), and gives a quiet clicking sound when pressed and supports gesture controls with several fingers.

Display is the main con of the unit, it is not super bright (to the point of issues in direct sunshine).

Screen has low sRGB and RGB coverage (57% sRGB and 36% AdobeRGB) and low constractions.

Screen doesn’t come with PWM or Screen flickering (it is a good thing because screens that have it put strain on your eyes).

Screen is IPS so it has good viewing angles, but also has slow response rate when compared to TN panels.

Fan noise is another small con, while the sound is low under light usage, it does get loud while gaming but not to the point of it being annoyingly loud.

Heat management on it is very good, and its main selling point along with value for money, CPU/GPU don’t throttle(much it is still within acceptable level) and don’t get hot to the point of internal damage (however, it does hot enough to be uncomfortable on your lap).

Speakers are user facing, so there is no muffled sound, however, it doesn’t offer much base.

It has a more powerful GPU than the one in the mentioned ASUS. You can check the below link to see how the 1060 Max Q GPU which will run CSGO, Overwatch, LoL, Diablo 3, and Skyrim smoothly.

It definitely would be possible. The **Dell G5** is the main option, since it has a good chassis and good specifications for the price. Includes the GTX 1060 graphics card, very capable at high settings 1080p. The design is far from the typical gamer design, which is awfully rare in your price range. Most laptops gear towards a gamer design, which is not always ideal. Keyboard is backlit.

Let me know if you have questions about my recommendation.

Buying a new laptop

Posted on: February 3, 2019 by legos45

Hi,

The games you listed are somewhat demanding, so I think that the **Dell G5** is a good fit. It has the best specifications for the price, plus a solid cooling system for its components. It is essential for a gaming device, since thermal throttle in laptops like the Helios 300 take away from performance.

The i5 processor and GTX 1060 will be fine for those games, high settings 1080p should be about right. The graphics card is pretty important for gaming, and this laptop prioritizes that.

Let me know if you hvae any questions.

Hi,

For a combination of battery life and specifications, the **Dell G5** is a good fit, it has great specifications and a fairly good battery life for a gaming laptop. It is rare for a gaming laptop to have a good battery life, mainly because the components require lots of power to perform.

The battery life is around 5 hours for light use, which is fairly good. The OS is Windows 10 Home.

The i5 processor and GTX 1060 graphics card is fine for your use, you also have more room for more demanding games in the future. It has 8 GB RAM, which can be upgraded in the future. The build quality is pretty solid for a gaming laptop, Dell makes durable gaming laptops.

If you have questions, let me know!

Where Can I Find The Following Laptop?

Posted on: February 2, 2019 by legos45

When not using ray tracing, it performs similar to a GTX 1080 mobile graphics card.

In that case, the **Dell G5** is a lot more budget friendly, it has a GTX 1060 graphics card and i5 processor. It is under $1,000. The specifications provide a good amount of room for upgrades, mainly storage and RAM. The GTX 1060 is a very relevant graphics card, should last a few years.

Posted on: February 2, 2019 by legos45

Hi,

If you’re purchasing in the U.S, the **Dell G5** is probably the right fit, it has the best specifications for the price. The components are ideal for running games, and the cooling system is solid which is essential for a gaming device. Those games can run easily on higher settings.

The battery life is around 4-5 hours for light general use, which is fair for a gaming laptop. The OS is Windows 10 Home.

The GTX 1060 graphics card is capable of running those games at high settings 1080p with good FPS. The laptop includes an SSD, as well as a hard drive. It has 8 GB RAM, upgradable to 16 GB.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I see you have a second post: I can explain about the Helios 300 and GL63.

>I would avoid the Helios 300 because of thermal throttling issues. The MSI GL63 is a similar story… it has issues with thermal throttling, which is not good for gaming at all.

I need help choosing a laptop.

Posted on: February 2, 2019 by legos45

Hi,

For an another option to consider, the **Dell G5** is somewhat close to your description. It has similar performance to the Mech-15, but it has the Max-Q GTX 1060 and a weaker processor. However, gaming performance won’t take too large of a hit consider the difference in price.

The keyboard is nice according to reviews, plus it is backlit. The laptop is far below budget. The battery life is around 4-5 hours for light use, very typical for gaming devices. The OS is Windows 10 Home. The GTX 1060 graphics card and i5 processor, it will be fine for those kinds of games. The laptop does include a thunder bolt 3 port, which can be rare.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi,

In your price range, the **Dell G5** would easily provide the best price for performance in your price range. It has good specifications, plus a good cooling system which is essential for gaming, especially for long periods of gaming.

The GTX 1060 graphics card and i5 processor is a good combination for recent games. I don’t think you will have any issues running AAA titles at 1080p high settings.

Between these three, which would be the better buy?

Posted on: January 30, 2019 by legos45

Then the **Dell G5** is likely a good fit, it has better cooling than all of those laptops you listed, who suffer from thermal throttling. This means loss in performance, which is not wanted for a gaming device. This laptop has good components all around, whether it would be for general use, games, or demanding programs.

The i5 processor and GTX 1060 graphics card will be more than capable for general use programs as well as the games you have listed. You have plenty of head room for video editing and 3D modeling as well. The keyboard is nice in my opinion, but slightly varies from person to person.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Posted on: January 30, 2019 by legos45

Hi,

The Helios has issues with thermal throttling, while the HP Omen has issues with its fan curve. So, the best option is the **Dell G5**, it has excellent specifications + a good cooling system which is needed for gaming. This laptop’s OS is Windows 10 Home, which is typical for a gaming laptop. The GTX 1060 graphics card and i5 processor will be fine for games like Fortnite, and you have head room for future games. Build quality is very solid on this device.

Screen hinge in the center, which makes the display very stable.

You can open the display with one hand without any problems.

Comes with 3 USB and 1 USB type C that supports Thunderbolt.

Comes with Intel Wireless-AC 9560 which promises 1.7Gb/s but only delivers 485MBit/s (shouldn’t be an issue unless you have such a very high speed and the need for it).

Easily upgradeable since you only need to remove a single screw to access the back of the laptop to replace/upgrade ram and storage.

Comes with chiclet keyboard with average sized keys.

The typing noises is not audible (except for the space key).

The touchpad is large and defined by red accent, the keys (left, right) are in the touchpad itself (not separate keys), and gives a quiet clicking sound when pressed and supports gesture controls with several fingers.

Display is the main con of the unit, it is not super bright (to the point of issues in direct sunshine).

Screen has low sRGB and RGB coverage (57% sRGB and 36% AdobeRGB) and low constractions.

Screen doesn’t come with PWM or Screen flickering (it is a good thing because screens that have it put strain on your eyes).

Screen is IPS so it has good viewing angles, but also has slow response rate when compared to TN panels.

Fan noise is another small con, while the sound is low under light usage, it does get loud while gaming but not to the point of it being annoyingly loud.

Heat management on it is very good, and its main selling point along with value for money, CPU/GPU don’t throttle(much it is still within acceptable level) and don’t get hot to the point of internal damage (however, it does hot enough to be uncomfortable on your lap).

Speakers are user facing, so there is no muffled sound, however, it doesn’t offer much base.

Looking for a gaming and entertainment laptop for 700-1100

Posted on: January 26, 2019 by legos45

Hi,

In this price range, I recommend the **Dell G5**, it has the best gaming performance because of the strong specifications as well as good cooling. This is an essential combination for a good gaming performance. Some laptops have good specifications, but struggle with cooling.

The GTX 1060 graphics card and i5 processor is a good combination for the games you plan on playing. High settings 1080p is about right, with good FPS. The build quality is fairly good on this laptop.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I would recommend this [Dell Inspiron] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CD3MRZD/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) because it has a great balance between value for money, battery life, and very good performance, here is a little detailed review of it:

Screen hinge in the center, which makes the display very stable.

You can open the display with one hand without any problems.

Comes with 3 USB and 1 USB type C that supports Thunderbolt.

Comes with Intel Wireless-AC 9560 which promises 1.7Gb/s but only delivers 485MBit/s (shouldn’t be an issue unless you have such a very high speed and the need for it).

Easily upgradeable since you only need to remove a single screw to access the back of the laptop to replace/upgrade ram and storage.

Comes with chiclet keyboard with average sized keys.

The typing noises is not audible (except for the space key).

The touchpad is large and defined by red accent, the keys (left, right) are in the touchpad itself (not separate keys), and gives a quiet clicking sound when pressed and supports gesture controls with several fingers.

Display is the main con of the unit, it is not super bright (to the point of issues in direct sunshine).

Screen has low sRGB and RGB coverage (57% sRGB and 36% AdobeRGB) and low constractions.

Screen doesn’t come with PWM or Screen flickering (it is a good thing because screens that have it put strain on your eyes).

Screen is IPS so it has good viewing angles, but also has slow response rate when compared to TN panels.

Fan noise is another small con, while the sound is low under light usage, it does get loud while gaming but not to the point of it being annoyingly loud.

Heat management on it is very good, and its main selling point along with value for money, CPU/GPU don’t throttle(much it is still within acceptable level) and don’t get hot to the point of internal damage (however, it does hot enough to be uncomfortable on your lap).

Speakers are user facing, so there is no muffled sound, however, it doesn’t offer much base.

Steam games melted my walmart laptop (1000$ budget U.S.)

Posted on: January 25, 2019 by legos45

Hi,

I would first recommend going for a desktop. However, it that is not possible, I suggest the **Dell G5** laptop. It is the best within a $1,000 budget because of its cooling system and components for the price. Superior to laptops like the Nitro 5.

With the i5 processor and GTX 1060 graphics card, you can run recent games at 1080p high settings good FPS. Those titles should be fine on this laptop.

The display is a typical size, 1080p 15.6″. The aesthetic is not very special, not like most gamer laptops

Let me know if you have any questions!

Need laptop for 3D modeling and rendering

Posted on: January 25, 2019 by legos45

Then the most ideal laptop is the **Dell G5**, it is most definitely an improvement over the Dell G3. In this model in specific, the graphics card is much stronger. Additionally, the cooling is superior on this model. Lots of laptops like the Helios 300 suffer from thermal throttling, but this isn’t the case here.

The weight is around 6.3lbs, which is definitely a bit heavy, but expected for a good gaming laptop.

The OS is Windows 10 Home.

With the i5 processor and GTX 1060 graphics card, you can run CAD programs and 3D modeling programs, they often require a good processor and strong GPU which this laptop has.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Posted on: January 24, 2019 by LonerIM2

Within your budget, I think [Dell Inspiron] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CD3MRZD/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) is a pretty good option for you since it has GTX 1060 Max Q GPU which is powerful for your games such as Overwatch and league of legends that you are planning to play and here’s more details regarding GPU [https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-1060-Max-Q-GPU-Benchmarks-and-Specs.224734.0.html], it has some issues but they can be handled, such as fan noise, while the sound is low under light usage, it does get loud while gaming but not to the point of it being annoyingly loud, display is not super bright, and it has low sRGB and RGB coverage (57% sRGB and 36% AdobeRGB) and low constractions.
On the other hand, heat management on it is very good, CPU/GPU don’t throttle(much it is still within acceptable level) and don’t get hot to the point of internal damage (however, it does hot enough to be uncomfortable on your lap), easily upgradeable since you only need to remove a single screw to access the back of the laptop to replace/upgrade ram and storage, screen doesn’t come with PWM or Screen flickering (it is a good thing because screens that have it put strain on your eyes), and it is IPS so it has good viewing angles.

Posted on: January 24, 2019 by legos45

Hi,

I think that the **Dell G5** would be a reasonable option, but you can stay closer to $750 with good performance. The older model, the **Dell Inspiron 15 7567** is an excellent alternative. Although it has an older processor, the GTX 1050 Ti is the main star and it will provide excellent performance in the games you listed. Around 1080p high settings with good FPS, you can mess around with settings for better FPS.

The keyboard is nice in my opinion, but nothing very special.

Gaming/ general use laptop - (US $800-$1200 - 15.6")

Posted on: January 2, 2019 by LonerIM2

I would recommend this [Dell Inspiron] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CD3MRZD/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) because it has a great balance between value for money, battery life, and very good performance, here is a little detailed review of it:

Screen hinge in the center, which makes the display very stable.

You can open the display with one hand without any problems.

Comes with 3 USB and 1 USB type C that supports Thunderbolt.

Comes with Intel Wireless-AC 9560 which promises 1.7Gb/s but only delivers 485MBit/s (shouldn’t be an issue unless you have such a very high speed and the need for it).

Easily upgradeable since you only need to remove a single screw to access the back of the laptop to replace/upgrade ram and storage.

Comes with chiclet keyboard with average sized keys.

The typing noises is not audible (except for the space key).

The touchpad is large and defined by red accent, the keys (left, right) are in the touchpad itself (not separate keys), and gives a quiet clicking sound when pressed and supports gesture controls with several fingers.

Display is the main con of the unit, it is not super bright (to the point of issues in direct sunshine).

Screen has low sRGB and RGB coverage (57% sRGB and 36% AdobeRGB) and low constractions.

Screen doesn’t come with PWM or Screen flickering (it is a good thing because screens that have it put strain on your eyes).

Screen is IPS so it has good viewing angles, but also has slow response rate when compared to TN panels.

Fan noise is another small con, while the sound is low under light usage, it does get loud while gaming but not to the point of it being annoyingly loud.

Heat management on it is very good, and its main selling point along with value for money, CPU/GPU don’t throttle(much it is still within acceptable level) and don’t get hot to the point of internal damage (however, it does hot enough to be uncomfortable on your lap).

Speakers are user facing, so there is no muffled sound, however, it doesn’t offer much base.

If you prefer better CPU and GPU and can push your budget a little higher, I would recommend this Eluktronics mech g2 because it has great combination between value for money, weight, battery life, and performance.

Here is a small review of it:

The outer shell is made almost entirely out of metal

Keyboard is mechanical with RGB backlit.

It has 3 USB type A, Ethernet, and mic and headphone jack and on the back an HDMI and USB type C.

Screen is IPS with impressively small bezels, and a professional design.

Lid can’t be open with one hand.

Fans get loud under intensive work, but that is normal with every good gaming laptop.

Plenty of upgrade options as the chassis supports up to 64GB of ram, and 2 SSDs and 1 HDD.

Heat management is great, it can get hot but it gets cool again pretty quickly once the fans kick in.

Main con of the laptop is the trackpad, it is mediocre at best when you compare it to other laptops in the price range.

Battery life during normal usage is around 3.5-4.5 hours and 1.5 hour during gaming.

Speakers are down facing so during gaming it is best to wear headphone since the fan gets loud during gaming as well.

Gaming/ general use laptop - (US $800-$1200 - 15.6")

Hi,

I would also recommend the Overpowered 15+ laptop from Walmart, but I don’t know if it will come back into stock. So, as an alternative, I would recommend the **Dell G5**, configuration with the GTX 1060 graphics card. For the price, build quality is fairly good and specifications are excellent for the price. Most important, it doesn’t thermal throttle, like the Acer Nitro 5 and Helios 300.

The laptop runs Windows 10 Home, typical in this price range.

You can run general use programs and Office programs just fine on this laptop. The games you listed will run fine, likely high-ultra settings since they aren’t too demanding. As for more recent releases, around high settings is about right.

The build quality is fairly good for the price, and the keyboard is pretty normal.

The link I’ve provided is to purchase on Amazon.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Best gaming performance I can get for around $1,000 USD

That Eluktronics is a great choice if you want 17.3 and ok with going over 1k, but if you want to stay below it then I would recommend this [Dell Inspiron] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CD3MRZD/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) because it has a great balance between value for money, battery life, and very good performance, here is a little detailed review of it:

Screen hinge in the center, which makes the display very stable.

You can open the display with one hand without any problems.

Comes with 3 USB and 1 USB type C that supports Thunderbolt.

Comes with Intel Wireless-AC 9560 which promises 1.7Gb/s but only delivers 485MBit/s (shouldn’t be an issue unless you have such a very high speed and the need for it).

Easily upgradeable since you only need to remove a single screw to access the back of the laptop to replace/upgrade ram and storage.

Comes with chiclet keyboard with average sized keys.

The typing noises is not audible (except for the space key).

The touchpad is large and defined by red accent, the keys (left, right) are in the touchpad itself (not separate keys), and gives a quiet clicking sound when pressed and supports gesture controls with several fingers.

Display is the main con of the unit, it is not super bright (to the point of issues in direct sunshine).

Screen has low sRGB and RGB coverage (57% sRGB and 36% AdobeRGB) and low constractions.

Screen doesn’t come with PWM or Screen flickering (it is a good thing because screens that have it put strain on your eyes).

Screen is IPS so it has good viewing angles, but also has slow response rate when compared to TN panels.

Fan noise is another small con, while the sound is low under light usage, it does get loud while gaming but not to the point of it being annoyingly loud.

Heat management on it is very good, and its main selling point along with value for money, CPU/GPU don’t throttle(much it is still within acceptable level) and don’t get hot to the point of internal damage (however, it does hot enough to be uncomfortable on your lap).

Speakers are user facing, so there is no muffled sound, however, it doesn’t offer much base.

You can check the below link to see how the 1060 Max Q GPU perform on the games you are planning to play (scroll down for the FPs and settings expected or ctrl+f then type the name of your game).

If you prefer 16GB of RAM and better CPU, you’ll need to push your budget higher, thus I would recommend this Eluktronics mech g2 because it has great combination between value for money, weight, battery life, and performance.

Here is a small review of it:

The outer shell is made almost entirely out of metal

Keyboard is mechanical with RGB backlit.

It has 3 USB type A, Ethernet, and mic and headphone jack and on the back an HDMI and USB type C.

Screen is IPS with impressively small bezels, and a professional design.

Lid can’t be open with one hand.

Fans get loud under intensive work, but that is normal with every good gaming laptop.

Plenty of upgrade options as the chassis supports up to 64GB of ram, and 2 SSDs and 1 HDD.

Heat management is great, it can get hot but it gets cool again pretty quickly once the fans kick in.

Main con of the laptop is the trackpad, it is mediocre at best when you compare it to other laptops in the price range.

Battery life during normal usage is around 3.5-4.5 hours and 1.5 hour during gaming.

Speakers are down facing so during gaming it is best to wear headphone since the fan gets loud during gaming as well.

Comes with chiclet keyboard with average sized keys.

The typing noises is not audible (except for the space key).

The touchpad is large and defined by red accent, the keys (left, right) are in the touchpad itself (not separate keys), and gives a quiet clicking sound when pressed and supports gesture controls with several fingers.

Display is the main con of the unit, it is not super bright (to the point of issues in direct sunshine).

Screen has low sRGB and RGB coverage (57% sRGB and 36% AdobeRGB) and low constractions.

Screen doesn’t come with PWM or Screen flickering (it is a good thing because screens that have it put strain on your eyes).

Screen is IPS so it has good viewing angles, but also has slow response rate when compared to TN panels.

Fan noise is another small con, while the sound is low under light usage, it does get loud while gaming but not to the point of it being annoyingly loud.

Heat management on it is very good, and its main selling point along with value for money, CPU/GPU don’t throttle(much it is still within acceptable level) and don’t get hot to the point of internal damage (however, it does hot enough to be uncomfortable on your lap).

Speakers are user facing, so there is no muffled sound, however, it doesn’t offer much base.

Need a gaming laptop that doesn't look like a gaming laptop

Posted on: November 19, 2018 by LonerIM2

If 1100 is your max then I would recommend this [Dell Inspiron] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CD3MRZD/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) because it has a great balance between value for money, battery life, and very good performance, here is a little detailed review of it:

Screen hinge in the center, which makes the display very stable.

You can open the display with one hand without any problems.

Comes with 3 USB and 1 USB type C that supports Thunderbolt.

Comes with Intel Wireless-AC 9560 which promises 1.7Gb/s but only delivers 485MBit/s (shouldn’t be an issue unless you have such a very high speed and the need for it).

If you can push your budget then I would recommend this Eluktronics mech g2 because it has great combination between value for money, weight, battery life, and performance.

Here is a small review of it:

The outer shell is made almost entirely out of metal

Keyboard is mechanical with RGB backlit.

It has 3 USB type A, Ethernet, and mic and headphone jack and on the back an HDMI and USB type C.

Screen is IPS with 144Hz refresh rate, with impressively small bezels, and a professional design.

Lid can’t be open with one hand.

Fans get loud under intensive work, but that is normal with every good gaming laptop.

Plenty of upgrade options as the chassis supports up to 64GB of ram, and 2 SSDs and 1 HDD.

Heat management is great, it can get hot but it gets cool again pretty quickly once the fans kick in.

Main con of the laptop is the trackpad, it is mediocre at best when you compare it to other laptops in the price range.

Battery life during normal usage is around 3.5-4.5 hours and 1.5 hour during gaming.

Speakers are down facing so during gaming it is best to wear headphone since the fan gets loud during gaming as well.

Posted on: November 18, 2018 by legos45

Hi,

For a better battery life, I would recommend the **Dell G5**, it has a larger battery than the Y530. It has:

* i5-8300H 4-core processor

* 8 GB of RAM

* 128 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD storage

* 1080p 15.6″ display

* GTX 1060 6 GB Max-Q graphics card

* Weight of 6.3lbs and battery life around 6.5 hours

This laptop runs Windows 10 Home.

According to a NoteBookCheck review, you can reach around 6.5 hours while connected to WiFi, so you should be fine during the school day for light general use.

The design isn’t like most gaming devices so you should be fine at school. You can run games like Overwatch and CS:GO easily, as well as video editing software. The laptop is mainly plastic, but it should be durable like the previous generations of Dell gaming laptops. The keyboard is backlit.

I would recommend this [Dell Inspiron] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CD3MRZD/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) because it comes with everything you may need, 8th generation, i5 quad core CPU which is one of the best in the market and great for your usage, 8GB of ram for smooth multitasking and you can upgrade it, good SSD storage of 128GB for faster boot up and loading, 15.6 inch Full HD IPS anti-glare screen which is a must have for this price range, 1TB HDD, GeForce GTX 1060 GPU that should be able to handle games on medium to high settings with very good FPs, long battery life, high build quality, and it’s within your budget.
If you don’t like this option then I would recommend that you check my best gaming and college laptop to compare it with similar options.

Another alternative to the HP Omen 15t would be the **Dell G5 gaming laptop**, it has a GTX 1060. It’s sadly a just a bit over 6lbs. It will be great for college and developing.

Hi /u/KyrianSalvar I hope you don’t mind me answering your question here but I thought that this list will give you a good idea for what to get, it seems that the G3 doesn’t have the best build quality if you can push your budget a little I would recommend this Dell i7577 .
