Dell G15 5511 15.6" Gaming Laptop (2021)

MSRP 929 USD

Product Overview

Dell G15 5511 is an affordable 15.6-inch gaming laptop that targets price-sensitive consumers who needs occasional power to get things done. An incremental update of the G15 5510, the 5511 switches out the 10th-gen Intel chips for 11th-gen Tiger Lake units up to i7-11800H.
Like the 5510, the G15 5511 uses NVIDIA's RTX 3000-series discrete GPUs. In this case, the older GTX options have been removed. Otherwise, Dell is sticking to the new chassis unveiled with the 5510 earlier this year.
Overall, the G15 5511 is a compelling machine for its price. While the machine is not much different from the 5510, the efficiency improvement by moving to 10nm potentially gives the laptop more thermal headroom and battery life advantages.
To avoid cannibalization, the G15 5511 is still a bit below gaming laptops from Dell's major competitors. Those who really want to compete can look for Dell's G15 5511 SE (Special Edition), which is the same laptop with more powerful internals.
