This RTX 3050-powered laptop is ideal for gamers on a tight budget

Good news if you are looking for a new thigh warmer. Dell has secured a limited-time sale on a G15 gaming laptop for $629 through the rest of the day. It’s a great deal for anyone sticking to a relatively tight budget.

This entry-level laptop is $404 off its usual price of $1,000 (thanks to coupon code TRAVISSAVE10AW). We tend to see this particular model selling online at other retailers for between $850 and $950. Unlike GPUs, gaming laptops are almost always priced below MSRP.

This 15-inch G15 gaming laptop model is powered by an Intel Core i5-11260H processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM and a 4GB RTX 3050. This GPU is the spiritual successor to the GTX 1660 Ti, utilizing the socket support for DLSS and ray tracing of the RTX 30 series.

The Dell G15 should be able to give you decent gaming performance at 1080p on medium settings. The 120Hz IPS display is great if you mainly play competitive shooters like Fornite or just want a good gaming laptop for playing indies.

It’s a bit of a shame to only see 8GB of DDR4 RAM, although that’s pretty common for these super budget gaming laptops. Another slight disappointment is the 256GB NVMe SSD for storage. Consider upgrading the SSD or investing in an external SSD to store all your games.

Dell is offering a sale on an AMD version of this laptop with a Ryzen 5 5600H mobile processor for the same price in case you’re more of a Team Red person. Just make sure to use the same coupon code to get the extra discount.

It’s no surprise that these laptops are picked up pretty quickly online. At the time of writing, around 88% of the Intel and AMD models of this G15 have already been claimed. So be sure to act quickly. But don’t worry if you miss. We track all the weekly cheap laptop deals here just for you.
