    Amazing to see all these 1 star reviews stating the processor is 2.3ghz and not the claimed 3.9ghz. If these people knew anything, they would know the processors base clock is 2.3ghz and boost clock (usually on one or two cores) is 3.9ghz (actually 4.0 according to Intel). This is to help with heat and keep the power draw low. Only boosting up to 4.0ghz when gaming or doing cpu intensive workloads.


  • So Many Issues

    I made the mistake of purchasing this laptop on February 18th and received it on February 20th, and sent it back on March 7th. I was really willing to ignore some of the initial issues that arose right of the bat, because of the laptops price point.. but as more issues came.. I just couldn't ignore them anymore. The first issue was right when I took the laptop out of the box. I hit the power button only to be presented with nothing. All other products I have purchased in the past always where able to turn on right out of the box.. anyways I plugged it in, went through the setup process and noticed that the battery was almost fully charged.. but it didn't turn on. Why? The second issue was one that was harder to look past, but again I kept in the mind that this was a "budget" gaming laptop.. and that issue was slow wifi. I normally get between 60 to 75Mbps, and was hardly getting 26 on the Dell G3, even connecting the Dell to Ethernet only boosted the speed up about 31Mbps. So downloading a game like GTA V, took all day. The computer itself was really slow too. Even simple tasks like opening a folder or web browser took much longer then it should have. The screen is very dull and dark at max brightness. Gaming on it was good.. until it wasn't. I was sporting around 67 to over 100fps, but then the game would freeze causing me to shut the computer down improperly. That made things even slower. I took over three minutes to open up Geforce Experience. Don't buy this.


  • Horrible

    I got this laptop and it was a huge mistake. Mine had a problem with one of the fans and it took me 2 months to get it fixed with Dell. When it came back it still had more issues than when I sent it to them, and now sometimes the speakers don't work unless I plug in and then unplug a headphone jack. It has also become significantly slower than when I first bought it and I have only owned this laptop for 3 months excluding the 2 months where it was getting repaired. This laptop was advertised with a 3.9GHZ chip and I got 2.3GHZ.
