Dealmaster: Get a Dell gaming laptop with 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1060 for $849

Arsians, greetings! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to discuss. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on Dell’s G5 15 gaming notebook –a configuration with Intel’s Core i5-8300H CPU, 16GB of RAM, and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU is down to $849 at Walmart. Dell generally sells this model for $1,100, so this is about a $250 discount.
To be clear, this can be technically Dell’s last-gen G5 15–the firm marginally refreshed all its gaming lineup earlier this year–and the laptop isn’t without defects. The chassis is largely plastic, the 15.6-inch 1080p display is not exactly luxury, and, this being a gaming notebook, the entire thing is not very thin (0.98 in.) Or light (5.76 lbs.) . Its lovers will create some sound . But such is life with a funding gaming laptop. What you are paying for this is your ability to play newer games in 1080p–preferably on large, not ultra, configurations –on the (relative) cheap. The 6GB GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s lower-powered Max-Q variant, and it’s not the most cutting card card these days, but until laptops with newer GPUs like the GTX 1660 become more widespread, it’s still powerful enough to get the job done. The laptop includes a Thunderbolt 3 interface and ought to get about five hours of battery life. All told, it feels like a fantastic value at this price.

But if you’d rather make your own gaming rig, then we also possess bargains on God of War, Samsung mobile SSDs, USB-C hubs, iPads, and more. Have a look for yourself under.
