Dealmaster: Get a Dell gaming laptop with 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1060 for $799

Original article: Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on Dell’s G5 15 gaming laptop—a configuration with Intel’s Core i5-8300H CPU, 16GB of RAM, and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU is down to $799 at Walmart. Dell usually sells this model for $1,100, so this is about a $300 discount.

To be clear, this is technically Dell’s last-gen G5 15—the company slightly refreshed most of its gaming lineup earlier this year—and the notebook isn’t without flaws. The chassis is mostly plastic, the 15.6-inch 1080p display isn’t exactly high-end, and, this being a gaming laptop, the whole thing isn’t very thin (0.98 in.) or light (5.76 lbs.). Its fans will make some noise, too. But such is life with a budget gaming laptop. What you’re really paying for here is the ability to play newer games in 1080p—preferably on high, not ultra, settings—on the (relative) cheap. The 6GB GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s lower-powered Max-Q variant, and it’s not the most cutting-edge card these days, but until notebooks with newer GPUs like the GTX 1660 become more prevalent, it’s still powerful enough to get the job done. The laptop itself includes a Thunderbolt 3 port and should get about five hours of battery through Web browsing. All told, it feels like a good value at this price.

But if you’d rather make your own gaming rig, we also have deals on , Samsung portable SSDs, USB-C hubs, iPads, and more. Have a look for yourself below.
