Dealmaster: Get a Dell laptop with a six-core Core i7 and GTX 1060 for $880
Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is led by a deal on Dell's 15-inch G7 gaming laptop with a Core i7-8750H, 1080p IPS display, 256GB SSD, and GTX 1060 graphics card for $880. That's $200 off its usual going rate.
Note that this is the Max-Q version of Nvidia's GTX 1060, so it trades a pinch of raw performance from the standard GTX 1060 for somewhat cooler operation. The GTX 1060 isn't Nvidia's strongest GPU to begin with, either. And since this is a budget gaming laptop, it doesn't feel premium; Dell has put a good amount of plastic on the chassis to keep costs down.
That said, the GTX 1060 Max-Q can still play most modern games in 1080p. It also supports VR. Having one of Intel's new six-core Core i7 processors alongside that GPU should bring plenty of power for a sub-$900 laptop. Beyond the raw specs, the G7 has a backlit keyboard, a Thunderbolt 3 port, three USB 3.1 Gen-1 ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, and an Ethernet jack.
