class="cnetReview row" section=""> Sarah Tew/CNET The G3 15 is Dell's entry point for its gaming laptops, at least for those not sold under the company's Alienware division. This is the step-down model from the G5 15, which won an Editors' Choice award from us last year, but don't take that as a knock. Despite being lower end, Serverpkv the G3 and G5 have some component overlap. You can essentially get the same configuration and similar performance for less money by going with the G3, even if the design isn't as polished or sturdy feeling.

Good performance for the money

Thin and light for a gaming laptop

Flimsy build compared to Dell G5

Display color could be better
At least, that's the case for the G3 I tested, which sells for $792 with current promotions, while the same component mix in the G5 is $852 at the moment. That's not a huge savings, but it's something. Once you get beyond this configuration though, the price difference gets even smaller and the decision more difficult. Here's why the G3 is still worth a look.
