Chassis, connectors, Dell G3 15 3500 screen
With its black frame with angular lines and touches of blue, it has a sober, original and gamer look.
The connectivity integrated into this gamer-oriented laptop PC is good, including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac modules for wireless communication and remote connection, HDMI video outputs and practical mini-DisplayPort for connect it easily to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even 3 USB (compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard promises to be splash resistant, which is appreciable if you are used to keeping something to quench your thirst next to your PC.
In addition, the keyboard keys can be backlit, which is very practical for discerning them in the dark.
The screen stands out for its frequency of 120Hz which enhances fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also displays colors more faithful than the average and is very well suited to High Definition content such as videos by its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of Dell G3 15 3500
This Dell G3 15 3500 is for those looking for a versatile 15-inch gaming-oriented laptop PC.
It is indeed capable of running many games for concessions under titles requiring graphics resources because it is equipped with a dedicated graphics card GeForce GTX 1650 Ti NVIDIA Turing.
In practice, the on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology calls on the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti automatically and in real time only when the modest services of the Intel UHD 630 solution prove to be insufficient to perform the requested tasks. Integrated within the processor, the Intel UHD 630 is indeed privileged to the maximum because its low energy consumption promotes autonomy. Obviously with the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti or the Intel UHD 630, you can watch photos and videos.
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti also has the advantage of speeding up processing under software using GPU computing power. This is for example the case with Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which will be of interest to creators.
In games, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti is supported by SSD storage which generally guarantees much better responsiveness and fluidity than a hard drive, including in gaming.
Thanks to the SSD, we get faster on the cards of online games than with a simple hard drive and we benefit, for example, from much faster starts / stops as well as games / software launches and treatments.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and silent.
With its 512 GB, the SSD here integrated offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks, but that may be too fair for some.
To get more space, one can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
The heart of this gamer-oriented laptop works well with the GTX 1650 Ti in gaming and delivers solid overall performance that can satisfy as many users as possible.
It is based on a Comet Lake-H Quad Core i5-10300H processor and 8 GB of RAM.
The Quad Core i5-1030H of course provides much faster processing than a low-power Quad Core processor in CPU-intensive areas that take advantage of multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
Finally on the autonomy side, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer which is heard and heats up to the point that it is not recommended to use it on the knees or a duvet when it is strongly pushed (ex : games, treatments).
