Dell is willing to attract gamers who want more features than existing systems but are unwilling to venture into the Alienware area. It introduces a trio of gaming PCs headlined by the new G7 series in 15- and (especially) 17-inch sizes. It’s pretty sleek with a design as thick as 0.72 inches, optional four-zone RGB keyboard lighting, and plenty of chassis lighting. The real allure, apart from the existence of a 17-inch model, is its performance.
You can choose an 8-core Intel Core i9 processor, GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics, 32GB RAM, a 4K OLED screen, and a 1TB PCIe SSD. G-Series’ signature Game Shift button allows you to maximize the fan speed to reduce heat discomfort. The 17-inch G7 is available today starting at $1,430, while the 15-inch edition will appear on June 29 for the same starting price.
You’ll also find an updated version of the G5 desktop (below), although the changes aren’t that dramatic. You’ll still get that familiar compact, ribbed tower design, but you’ll also find 10th generation Intel processors (up to a Core i9), graphics as powerful as the GeForce RTX 2070 Super and as much as 64GB of RAM. There are options for indoor and outdoor RGB lighting, including a clear side panel to show off your components. It goes on sale July 9 for “around” $749.
Peripherals are also available. The Dell 27 Curved Gaming FHD Monitor and 27 Gaming QHD monitor offer 1080p and 1440p resolutions with their respective VA and IPS panels. along with 1ms pixel response times in ideal conditions. And if you need a keyboard, Alienware’s RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Cherry MX Brown has switches, RGB illumination per key, and three tapping angles. The curved screen debuts on August 21 for $280, but you can get the QHD screen on July 28 for $570. The Alienware keyboard launches Aug. 4 for $130.
