One of Dell's updated gaming laptops is under the microscope over at TechARP, the 15.6" G7 15 with a 1080p IPS display. They were sent the highest end model, which contains an i7-8750H, 16GB DDR4-2666, a GTX 1060 Max-Q and both a 1TB HDD and 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD all for around $1800.
The size of the latop allows a full keyboard with number pad though oddly the touchpad is off to the left a bit, centred to the keyboard as if there was no numpad. The power button is also a fingerprint sensor, an interesting idea for those who log into Windows by giving it the finger.
The battery also knows a few tricks, TechARP hit two hours of gameplay on the battery but it came at a cost; on mains power the G7 scores 9,916 on the 3DMark FireStrike test while on battery it scores only 2,822. Check out the full review here.
"Earlier this year, Dell revamped their gaming line-up, rebranding it it as the new G-series. But is that all they really did? We find out in our in-depth review of the Dell G7 15 (7588) gaming laptop!"
