I am using this notebook for more than 2 years and still haven't faced any issues, be it for coding or playing heavy games for hours. Personally, this is one of my most favourite budget laptops. The integrated 4GB GDDR5 Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics card is highly versatile and plays a significant role while playing the high-end games for several hours. 

The 2.4 GHz base speed and 4.1 GHz of turbo speed allow you to use it to the fullest while gaming by maximising the clock speed and also enables you to reduce the clock speed and save some amount of battery power during normal usage.

It is also featured with a green coloured backlit full-sized island type keyboard. This comes with a 1.5 mm key travel which provides a great experience while typing or playing games. Also, it's never a big deal if you press it for a much longer time. The keys can sustain 20 million keypresses and can also withstand a lot of weight on it.

Dell has also come up with one of the most budget friendly gaming laptops, that is, the Gaming G3. After the Alienware series at a higher budget, this product comes up with a lot of features which the gamers actually require for high-end gaming and streaming. Dell is one of the most trusted brands in the world for its awestruck durability feature and when this combines with immense features, that creates a real beast.

 

Now if you consider looks and design then you should never go with Dell. Dell rarely produces stylish laptops, it can only defeat its competitors in terms of toughness and long-lasting. Thus, the same goes for this product. It only has a heaviness inside it and the outlook is not so attractive like the other ones. But a real gamer never prefers external design over internal features. This gaming model is the same as the Inspiron series models which is one of the most popular sub-brands of Dell.

 

Keeping aside all those things, this laptop is featured with the Nvidia Max Q design which is a special series of graphics card launched by Nvidia only for the high-end gamers. It provides a crystal clear and detailed screen experience for a more impressive experience. The wide view anti-glare display is totally amazing and you get a sharp image from every angle you see. 

The Smart Byte Technology is pre-installed within this laptop for flawless streaming be it from your phone screen or the laptop screen itself. It is featured with dual fans system which guarantees to never heat up your device and provide you a cool environment for gaming.

 

The G3 gets its speed mainly from its drive that is the 128GB dual NVMe PCIe SSD slots. The processor also plays an important role and this device is provided with an Intel Core i5 - 8th Generation processor which has a base speed of 2.29GHz and a turbo speed of 4GHz which is undoubtedly considered as one of the top most features for gaming.

You can easily play and do whatever you like in a low light area because the keyboard comes with a beautiful blue backlit feature. It arrives with preloaded Windows 10 Home and Microsoft Office and a domestic warranty of 1 year. You can blindly trust the built-quality of this laptop because it is made by 'Dell' which promises to last for at least 10 years without any hardware crash.

PROS:

✔️ The most trustworthy graphics card is provided with Max Q design technology.

✔️ Smart Byte technology can be considered as one of the unique features of this laptop at this price range.

✔️ NVMe SSDs are undoubtedly the fastest of all drives available in the market.

✔️ The powerful dual fans provide an uninterrupted gaming experience to the user.

 

CONS:

❌ It may be heavy for some people.

 The design is not up to the mark as compared to other laptops at this price range.
