The Dell G5 15 5587 or simply G5587 is a 15.6-inch gaming notebook, starting at around $800. It’s not a top-tier gaming laptop, since it lacks the fastest video card options like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 or 1080. But, with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB or GTX 1060 (Max Q) 6GB video cards and the 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8300H quad-core or i7-8750H six core processor, the 5587 / G5587 still provides excellent performance for gaming, everyday computing, and demanding PC tasks like high-res video editing. The laptop has two RAM slots and ships with up to 16GB of RAM. For storage, the laptop incorporates up to 256GB solid state drive or up to 1-Terabyte hard drive or combination of both. For storage performance boost, Dell optionally offers Intel Optane 16GB memory. However, selection of Optane reduces the number of RAM slots to only one. For power autonomy, the machine uses a 56 WHr battery. That’s a good capacity, but keep in mind that gaming laptops, including this one, tend to consume a lot of power. Especially while running heavy games.

The 15.6″ screen of the 5587 / G5587 provides a Full HD resolution and IPS wide viewing angles. The base of the laptop carries a full-size keyboard with a numeric pad and optional backlight, as well as a multi-touch trackpad.

Specs-wise, the Dell G5 15 5587 is very similar to the G3 15 3579. But, the G5 variant has a more gaming-oriented design with large fan grilles on the rear, while the 3579 looks like a regular mainstream laptop. Furthermore, the G5 has a Thunderbolt 3.0 as a standard feature, whereas on the G3 it’s optional. There’s also the Dell G7, which adds an Intel Core i9 top-tier processor option.
