Gaming Laptop Advice

DS is looking at getting a new laptop and would like it to be able to use it for occasional gaming. In the words of Manuel "I know nothing" (If you're not of a certain age - it's a Fawlty Towers reference )

Can anyone help with suggestions of models or specs he should be looking at, he's thinking of spending between 600 - 1,000 although would prefer to be closer to the lower end.

Thanks

What do you mean by occasional gaming? What games as whether you play them once or all day, they still have a minimum specification.

True gaming laptops from the likes of (DELL Alienware) are north of 1.5k so you are really looking at the higher end of normal laptops. DELL have a gaming spec as well for the more casual gamer.

These can be found at dell/en-uk/shop/lapt...ptops/g-series

This would be the requirement for the sort of game he would be interested in.

System Requirements

Minimum:
Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 10/8.1/7 64-bit
Processor: Core i3-2100 3.10 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: Geforce GTX 650 Ti
Storage: 25 GB available space
Sound Card: Onboard

Recommended:
Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 10/8.1/7 64-bit
Processor: AMD FX-8320 8-Core
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: Radeon R7 370
Storage: 25 GB available space
Sound Card: Onboard

On that basis do you think the G3 or G5 from Dell would be OK?

Thanks

You need to be looking at the models with 16Gb RAM to meet the games requirements.

I would suggest one with a minimum of an Intel i5 or AMD Ryzen 7 CPU and a dedicated graphics card with at least 4Gb RAM.

There are both G3 and G5 models that meet those specifications.
