The entry level G3 series will be available with 15- or 17-inch FHD anti-glare screen, start at US $749 and US $799, and are, according to Dell, one of the thinnest gaming notebooks designed by the company, measuring just 22.7mm and 25mm, respectively. In order to keep the price down, these won't have fancy CNC aluminum chassis or similar designs but stick to cheaper plastic. The Dell G3 15 and G3 17 will be available in Licorice Black and Recon Blue color options while the Alpine White will be an exclusive option for the G3 15.
On the other hand, they will pack quite a punch for the targeted market range with either the Core i5-8300HQ or Core i7-8750HQ CPU, up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 memory in two SO-DIMM slots, choice between GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU, plenty of storage options including hybrid 1TB HDD, dual-drive config with up to 256GB SSD + 1TB 5400 RPM HDD, or up to 512GB of PCIe SSD storage, optional backlit keyboard, 56WHr 4-cell integrated battery and more.
The new G5 15 is a bit more serious gaming notebook with a better build-quality and much more options. It will still be available with either the Core i5-8300HQ or the Core i7-8750HQ quad-core CPUs but offer a choice between FHD (1920x1080) IPS anti-glare or 4K/UHD (3840x2160) IPS antiglare displays.
It will also be available with up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, Nvidia GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 Max-Q GPUs, same storage options as the G3 series with up to 256GB + 1TB HDD or 512GB PCIe SSD, optional backlit keyboard and Windows Hello fingerprint reader and more.
The G5 15 will be available in an eye-catching Matte Black or Beijing Red color options and use Dell's dual-fan cooling technology with huge vents located at the back.
The Dell G7 15 should be the highest-end offer and while it will still have the same choice of FHD (1920x1080) IPS anti-glare or 4K/UHD (3840x2160) IPS antiglare displays, it widens the CPU options, adding the six-core Core i9-8950HQ to the Core i5-8300HQ and Core i7-8750HQ quad-core processors.
It also can be equipped with GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 Max-Q GPUs, up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, same storage options, same 56WHr integrated battery, same Gigabit Ethernet with 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2, and the same dual-fan cooling design with large vents at the back. It will be available in Licorice Black or Alpine White color options.
