Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal for those in urgent need of a budget gaming laptop: a configuration of Dell’s G5 15 notebook with 16GB of RAM and a Nvidia GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU is down to $880 at Walmart.
The G Series launched earlier this year as the successor to Dell’s Inspiron Gaming line. This particular model runs on an Intel Core i5-8300H processor and uses dual storage in the form of a 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD. There’s a USB-C port (albeit of the slower Gen 1 variety), along with an HDMI port, Ethernet jack, SD card slot, and three USB 3.1 ports. The keyboard is backlit, and the 15.6-inch IPS display has a 1080p resolution.
Full disclosure: the Dealmaster has not personally tested this notebook, but given that this is a relatively affordable gaming laptop, expect a few compromises. The Max-Q version of the GTX 1060 is strong enough to get through most modern games, but it’ll be a hair weaker than the desktop-class card, which itself isn’t the highest on Nvidia’s totem pole. Reviews around the Web suggest the whole thing is made of a cheapish plastic and that the display is far from special. At close to six pounds, it’s not the most portable device either.
But if you’re mainly hunting for horsepower for less than a grand and can’t wait for the inevitable Black Friday sales, this looks to be a good value for 1080p gaming. And if you don’t want to take the plunge, we also have deals on Razer gaming mice, Amazon devices, Samsung microSD cards, and more. Have a look for yourself below.
