Chassis, connectors, Dell G3 15 3500-249 screen
It has an original gamer allure with a black frame with angular lines and touches of blue.
This gaming laptop PC is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its useful HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB-C as well as its 3 USBs (compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than \’in USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 peripherals.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment. In addition, the keyboard is splash-proof, which is comforting if you are used to keeping something to quench your thirst next to your PC.
For its part, the screen improves fluidity in games because it is adorned with a frequency of 120Hz higher than the 60Hz standard. In addition, it has large horizontal and vertical viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology, which also displays colors more faithful than the average. Thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen is also well suited to High Definition content such as videos. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of Dell G3 15 3500-249
This Dell G3 15 3500-249 may be of interest to those looking for a versatile 15-inch gaming-oriented laptop PC.
As it embeds the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics card, this computer will be of interest to gamers since it is capable of running a number of games as long as we agree to adjustments under titles that are greedy in graphics resources to obtain a good playability.
Depending on the tasks performed, the on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor.
Optimus uses the Intel UHD 630 as much as possible despite its very modest features because it is energy efficient and thus promotes battery life.
In this regard, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti is in practice activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti will also be of interest to creators because it speeds up processing under applications that take advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere.
The heart of this gaming laptop PC supports the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti well. It actually delivers solid overall performance that can satisfy a maximum of users because it is based on a Comet Lake-H Quad Core i5-10300H processor and 8 GB of RAM.
The Quad Core i5-10300H notably guarantees much faster processing than a low-power Quad Core processor, particularly in areas that require CPU resources using multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
On the storage side, we find here an on-board SSD which clearly reinforces daily responsiveness, in games and under processing compared to a simple hard drive.
Because an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of much faster game / software launches, processing and starts / stops or even faster arrival on the cards of online games for example.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. But if you need more space, you can use an external storage device like a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to enjoy fast transfers.
Finally, it should be kept in mind that when it is heavily used (eg games, treatments), this gaming laptop is heard and heats up, to the point that we will avoid using it on the knees or on a duvet. for example.
