Gigabyte has become a formidable force in recent years for producing their own gaming laptops that can compete with other long-standing vendors such as HP and Dell.
The G5 series is known to pack mid to high-end features into a budget package, and this model with an Intel Core i5 processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 costs $899.99 at Best Buy.
The 6 GB RTX 3060 graphics card is a very capable GPU that can handle all the latest titles on high settings. And the Core i5 chip also pairs well with the full HD display due to its 144Hz refresh rate, allowing you to dial back settings to play faster-action online games like Call of Duty, Rocket League, and Apex Legends instead. This laptop is ideal for both types of games.
There is also 16 GB of memory and a 512 GB SSD. There’s dual channel memory, allowing for future upgrades and while the storage space may seem low, that too can be upgraded. There’s even an empty space for a traditional hard drive or SATA SSD, should you want more storage space at a lower price.
And if you’re someone who usually docks their laptop as a workstation, you’re in luck. With mini DisplayPort, HDMI and USB-C, you can connect up to three external monitors to the G5. There’s also a full size SD card reader, which is great if you’re a photographer or want to move data from other devices like smartphones.
