The Dell G15 gaming laptop debuts with a little mystery

Dell wouldn't say what CPUs would be offered. We'll have to wait and see.

Dell just released a glimpse of its more updated G15 gaming laptop with GeForce RTX 3000 and a redesigned thermal system.

The laptop, revealed Tuesday morning in China where it goes on sale first, will feature a 15.6-inch 360Hz screen with low blue light, 4-zone RGB lighting, and a redesigned chassis.

As a more cost-effective (ahem, cheaper) gaming laptop compared to Dell's Alienware line, the G15 chassis is made of plastic. Dell said it uses low-VOC, water-based paint that is both durable and environmentally conscious.

What's curious is Dell didn't actually say what CPUs the laptop would be based on. Instead, the company lets us guess what "three performance options of 115 watt TDP and GeForce RTX 3000 series graphics" actually means.

So is the new G15 Intel- or AMD-based? We'll have to wait to find out, but when the G15 does ship later in March in the United States, it'll probably come in the same Dark Shadow Grey, Spector Green with Speckles (shown in photos), Obsidian Black, or Phantom Grey with Speckles.

Pricing was not announced.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
