Dell G7 15 (7588) review: A six-core gaming laptop that won’t break the bank

The Dell G7 15 is a mid-size gaming laptop with middle-of-the-road GTX 1060 Max-Q graphics, middling battery life, and—you guessed it—a mid-range price tag of $1,200.

Indeed, the G7 15’s overall performance is only a step or two behind that of our current 15-inch gaming laptop, the thinner and lighter MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE, while…

It’s small, quiet, and cheap, though it offers little storage and is far from quick.…

Looking more like a game console than a conventional gaming PC, the Trident 3 (starts at $849; $1,299 as tested) is one of the smallest virtual-reality-ready PCs you can buy. It’s powered by a desktop-class Intel Core i7 processor, plus a true, removable PCI Express graphics card, the latter far from a given in the often-proprietary innards of…
