The G3 also features a ‘Game Shift’ key for instantly activating dynamic performance mode and turning the dual-fan cooling system up during heavy action scenes, and comes with the Alienware Command Center installed so you can customise the optional 4-zone RBG lighting on the keyboard.

The Dell G3 is available in Eclipse black and Alpine white and is available to buy now with prices starting at £799.

Dell G7 (2020)

Dell has redesigned the G7 for 2020. Among the new updates from its predecessor are a slimmer design, more powerful performance and a customisable chassis light.

The laptop – which is available in 15-inch and 17-inch variations – has a new hinge design, along with a black anodised, all-metal chassis, allowing the laptop to drop 4mm to 20.5mm at the hinge. The bezels around the display have also shaved some weight, going from 9.9mm to 6.5mm on the G7 15 and 8.16mm on the G7 17.

The G7 is powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core CPUs (up to i9) and Nvidia GeForce graphic cards (up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q Design on the G7 15, and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super on the G7 17).

Like the rest of the series, this laptop is packed with gaming features, including a precision glass trackpad, customisable chassis light and a 4-zone RGB keyboard. There’s also the ‘Game Shift’ macro key to modulate the fan, along with Nahimic 3D Audio for 360⁰ audio, along with VoiceBoost and Sound Tracker radar.

Both the G7 15 and the G7 17 will be available to buy in July, with the 15-inch version available on July 17 and a specific date for the 17-inch version yet to be announced. UK pricing for both G7 models is yet to be confirmed.
