The newer version with the 2060 is slightly more expensive

I don't know about everyone else, but my standards for a laptop now a days does not include a hard drive. Prefer the extra battery or lighter weight without one.

Bought a few of the G7 15's during a previous deal from Dell - *every single one* had a non-functioning keyboard. I have no idea how poor QA has to be to have an entire batch of laptops have keyboards that don't work.

It's a dell inspiron series, they just rebranded it to G series. Yeah, a SDer still claimed inspiron build quality is better than XPS.

that extra battery is heavier than the HDD, not to mention for a gaiming laptop you will most likely install large filesize games..... getting a big SSD elsewhere is cheap but from the laptop itself is not

Seems like a good deal for under $1000 after gift card, especially since it's a Visa gift card, and considering a recent FP deal had the same specs but added a 2060 + 144Hz screen for about $300 more.

I recently got my G7 and I like it. A few thoughts:
  • You'll probably need to undervolt and possibly lower Turbo Boost power limits to get acceptable temperatures while gaming. As an alternative Dell does offer a "cool" power profile OOTB that keeps temperatures low at the expense of performance. Might work well for games that aren't CPU-bound but for a CPU-bound game it cut my framerate in half. Undervolting is the better option here IMO. A modest undervolt of 100mV lowered temps by about 10 degrees, I haven't experimented to see how low I can push it yet.
  • There's a bad driver on Windows Update for these machines. I've seen reports of BSODs and experienced them myself. I had to block driver updates from Windows Update.

Maybe that's what happened to mine, I couldn't register Windows then it was constant blue screens.

Dell support are friendly but good luck get any actual support there almost on par with Lenovo.

Dell G3/G5/G7 is totally unusable due to overheating/thermal throttling.
No USB-C PD and huge power brick makes it even worse

Not really sure what you're taking about here. I've had a G3, G7, and have a decked out G5 (a scratch and dent from Dell Outlet no less) right now. Never had any issues that made them "totally unusable" and USB-C spec caps out at 100w on PD. I do wish the brick was smaller but I'm not sure what you're wanting from a gaming laptop. It's big, loud, and powerful. That's the trade off.

it is not powerful at all when thermal throttling kicks in all the time [change.org]
