Cheap gaming laptops are somewhat of a forte over at the official Dell store it seems, with two particularly strong options having caught our eye in particular this weekend.
First up, this Dell G5 15 for £729 (was £868.99) really manages to elbow above the budget crowd by not only offering up a GTX 1650 Ti - a card that's normally swapped out for the standard non-TI version at this price, but also a 512GB SSD. That spacious drive is particularly handy these days as most triple-A games tend to come with some serious space requirements. An Intel Core i5-10300H and 8GB of RAM round of the specs here for a great little 1080p performer all around.
Another worthy consideration is this AMD-packed Dell G5 15 for £749 (was £918.99). With a Ryzen 5-4600H processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and Radeon RX 5600M, this one's got a little less space on the drive than the other but will quite handily outperform it when push comes to shove. Subsequently, if you can make that budget stretch a little, this is probably the best bang for the buck machine.
For those who want a mid-range machine, our bonus gaming laptop deal mention also goes to this Asus TUF for £899.99 (was £1,099.99). Courtesy of the Amazon Spring Sale, this machine's packing an RTX 2060, Ryzen 7-4800H, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, making it a very, very powerful machine for the money - if you can afford to spend extra that is.
