For a gaming laptop, the G7 15's 60Hz IPS display is a bit of a letdown. You can tell from the start that color is washed out, and testing color accuracy I got back 66 percent sRGB and 49 percent AdobeRGB. It gets bright enough for most scenarios and has an anti-glare display, and you can always connect to an external monitor when not on the go.Contributing a bit to the overall bulk and outdated look of the laptop is the rather large bezel around the display. You get about an inch on each side, so if that look drives you nuts, you might want to look elsewhere. Overall, the display isn't that great, but that's a tradeoff you have to live with for the price you pay for the complete package. I'd much rather have great performance than a perfect display, and that's what you get here.
The size of the G7 allows for a full keyboard with number pad, with keys evenly spaced with a good amount of room between. The WASD keys have blue highlights inked on, and you get a blue backlight that fits nicely with the outer alpine white shell. Keys don't seem to have a ton of travel, but they make a satisfying click and can certainly get the job done. You have a standard set of functions along the top F keys, and overall there's not much to complain about.
The touchpad is big — about four inches by three inches — and uses Precision drivers for full gesture support but it's placed directly below the spacebar in an off-center spot. If it were only an aesthetic issue, it wouldn't be a big deal, but its placement puts it in the way of my left hand when working the standard WASD section while gaming. Unfortunately, there's no shortcut key to disable the touchpad when a mouse is plugged in, and worse, my thumb rubs against the edge. Once immersed in a game I forget about it, but it's there.
These laptops are advertised as VR-ready on Dell's website, and indeed the G7 7588 handled what I threw at it. The GTX 1060 with Max-Q design handled the load without overheating, and the six-core CPU was more than enough. You might be lacking a USB-A port for a full three-sensor Rift setup, but as for Vive and Windows Mixed Reality, you're good to go with no need for adapters or dongles.The back of the laptop is held on with a single Philips-head screw and plenty of clips, allowing you to get inside quickly. Once there, you have easy access to RAM, both SSD and HDD storage, and Wi-Fi card. This will enable you to upgrade later on, helping keep your investment relevant for longer, and also allowing you to save some money at checkout. The cooling system is also evident; dual fans help keep the laptop relatively cool, though you will hear them running. Even while gaming, the plastic chassis never got uncomfortably hot.
Testing standard PC games, I played some Rise of the Tomb Raider, Dying Light, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG). With settings on High, I averaged about 60 FPS in Rise of the Tomb Raider. Dying Light, with settings on Best, I averaged 114.6 FPS. Finally, in PUBG with settings on High, I averaged about 87.1 FPS. Altogether, the hardware inside will allow you to play modern games without much trouble.
One of the biggest selling points for a gaming laptop is its battery life. Most of the time it's pretty scary, especially in budget options. The G7 has a four-cell 56 Wh battery, and I managed to eke about four hours from it while going about usual tasks. When gaming you'll want to keep it plugged in for best performance, as the battery will drain far quicker.I recently reviewed Lenovo's Legion Y530 laptop with a similar price (about $1,300) and different design. Comparing these two, you essentially choose between performance and style. The G7 looks a bit outdated, with its thick bezel and chunky body, but for the price, you're getting a lot of gaming performance. The Y530 delivers less performance, but it has a minimal bezel and not a lot of extra plastic, weighing in at about a pound lighter.
The G7 certainly has its share of perks, like easy post-purchase upgradeability, six-core processor, and lots of ports. If you don't mind the chunky look or the washed out display, it will easily power modern games. It doesn't get too hot under load, and the battery is average for a gaming laptop. Anyone who likes an aggressive design and doesn't mind a big bezel in exchange for great performance should check out the G7 15. It will get the job done every day, and it's even suitable for powering VR. There are Core i9 and 4K models available, but I would stick with the FHD display and Core i7 models for best return on your money when it comes to performance.
Lenovo makes a wide range of ThinkPads, with the T-series and X-series models sitting near the top of the pile. I have here the T580, which offers a 15.6-inch display (the rest of the T-series ThinkPads are set at 14 inches), full keyboard with number pad, hot-swappable battery system, and a bunch of the extra security and ease-of-use features you expect from a business laptop.I used the ThinkPad T580 for about a week, coming away generally impressed but not without a few reservations. Let's take an in-depth look at this big laptop and see whether or not it's the right device for you.
Lenovo loaned Windows Central a review unit of the ThinkPad T580. This specific model has inside an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8650U vPro processor (CPU), 16GB of DDR4-2400MHz RAM, a 512GB PCIe M.2 solid-state drive (SSD), and a 15.6-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) touch display. This specific configuration costs about $1,770 from Lenovo. Models start at about $980.The ThinkPad look hasn't changed much, especially in the T-series corner, but that's OK. The outside has a soft-touch finish and the inside, around the keyboard and touchpad, is more of a hard plastic. Just about everything here is made from glass-fiber reinforced plastic, but it still weighs in at 4.29 pounds (1.95 kg) and up depending on whether you opt for the 4K display or a larger external battery. It's not the most portable laptop — it's also 0.79 inches thick — but its performance I think makes up for the size.
The plastic body has a bit of flex when twisted, but the lid is held sturdy with two tight hinges. Working in a moving vehicle shouldn't be a problem, and the T580 has undergone 12 MIL-STD 810G certification tests to certify that it can put up with the perils of the road, like heat, cold, shock, vibration, and humidity. Optional LTE support makes this laptop more mobile so that that extra durability will come in handy.The T580 is a big business with stellar performance, a good selection of ports, and security features users and admins alike can appreciate.
Most ports are located on the right side of the laptop, including Ethernet, HDMI, two USB-A, an SD card reader, and a 3.5mm audio jack for headphones. There's lots of spacing between so you won't get any overlap when trying to use multiple peripherals. On the left side is a USB-C port that doubles as a charging port, and next to it is a Thunderbolt 3 port coupled with a Lenovo Ethernet side dock extension port.The T580 comes with some built-in security features that users and admins alike an appreciate. This model includes a vPro CPU for remote management, and it likewise has a discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) 2.0 chip for extra encryption and security. A fingerprint reader is set into the right palm rest, out of the way of your hand while typing. I tested it out plenty of times during use, and while it might seem like it takes an extra split second to log in compared to some other systems, it worked every time. There is an optional IR camera available (this model didn't have it), though with face recognition you'll lose the ThinkShutter, which is a quick and easy way to hide your 720p webcam without bits of paper or sticky tack.

As for color reproduction — another spot where many budget gaming laptops fall behind their premium competition — the Y730 hit 97 percent sRGB and 75 percent AdobeRGB. These are excellent results, and here's no doubt where some of the price difference is made up. It's a big step up over the panels in the Y530 and Y720, which both only managed to hit 66 percent sRGB and 50 percent AdobeRGB. Gaming on this laptop looks great.
The keyboard on the Y730 is really the first spot where the extra features over the cheaper Y530 really shine. Here is a keyboard with RGB lighting handled by Corsair iCUE, which allows you to set up just about any color combination and effect you'd like. I had a rainbow spiraling around for the first while but eventually settled on a gradient that was far less distracting.To the left of the main QWERTY setup is a column of six extra keys, with a couple that can be customized for just about any use. The others give you quick control over camera recording and backlight levels. These keys are handy, but they push the keyboard off center, which takes some getting used to. Key travel and response, though, are both satisfactory and I didn't mind doing a fair bit of typing while not gaming.
Lenovo Legion Y730 review
It's kind of surprising that the Y730 saw a GPU downgrade from the GTX 1060 in last year's Y720, but I guess that's tied in with the slim new build. There's still an updated 8th Gen Intel Core CPU that this time delivers six cores of power, but for the most part, you'll get about the same gaming performance from the top-of-the-line Y530 that costs hundreds less. The back cover comes off with the removal of 11 small Philips-head screws, allowing access to the SSD, Wi-Fi card, storage, and RAM, of which there two SO-DIMM slots for easy upgrades down the line.
I ran some real-world tests to see how the laptop performs while gaming. In Rise of the Tomb Raider, the Y730 averaged 42.32 FPS on High settings. I also tested out Dying Light, averaging 56.37 FPS on Best settings. You shouldn't have an issue running popular esports titles on the Y730, and it will even be able to power more demanding modern games, if at a lower framerate with lesser settings.The 57 Wh battery is a small step down over last year's Y720, but it gets about the same life. Expect somewhere around four hours while doing general productivity stuff, and expect about an hour while gaming. Keep your charger close, as is the case with most gaming devices.
The dual fans kick on as soon as you start gaming, and while they're pretty loud, they do a good job of keeping the laptop cool. I gamed for an hour while charging the battery and didn't notice any spots that got too hot to handle.After using the Legion Y730 for about a week, it has me divided. On one side, it has a smart design, a display with great color reproduction, fast storage, customizable macro keys, and in-depth RGB lighting, but it maxes out at a GTX 1050 Ti, which definitely limits its gaming performance. A 17-inch Y730 is also available, but it doesn't go higher than a GTX 1050 Ti either. Where are the high-performance Legion laptops?
This model I tested, which is as good as it gets from Lenovo, costs about $1,500. Compared to the Y530 I tested, which costs $200 less, you're going to get about the same gaming performance but will miss out on all the fancy keyboard features and better display. The Dell G7 I recently reviewed also costs $200 less, and it delivers better performance but in a chassis that looks dated and chunky. The Y730 is a more premium offering than these other two laptops and you get some impressive hardware for the price paid, but performance is key in a gaming laptop, and the Y730 didn't quite deliver up to my expectations.
Who is this laptop for?
Dell's G series aims to cut down on price while still delivering the performance gamers need. Available in three different classifications — G3, G5, and G7 — these laptops rise in price and hardware accordingly. I have here for review the 15.6-inch G7 with an alpine white color scheme and typical aggressive gaming design. Let's take a look at how well it performs and whether or not it's worth your attention. Dell supplied Windows Central with a review unit of the G7 15 (7588) gaming laptop. This specific configuration has inside an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor (CPU), 16GB of DDR4-2666MHz RAM, a 128GB Samsung PM871b M.2 SATA solid-state drive (SSD) coupled with a 1TB 5,400 RPM hard-disk drive (HDD), and a NVIDIA GTX 1060 (Max-Q) with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM. This exact model costs about $1,310, though they start at about $1,100 and go up to about $1,760.
When first taking the G7 7588 out of the box, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was a 17-inch device. It's made primarily from a plastic chassis with plenty of bulk, though it's sturdy as anything else I've tested. There's hardly any flex in the main body, and picking the thing up you don't feel like it will break if dropped (don't try it). That's no doubt partly thanks to the weight of 6.31 pounds (2.85 kg), which even for a gaming laptop is up there.The G7 is packed with some impressive hardware that contributes to the weight, but it partially also comes from the extra grates on the front and back that house speakers and cooling vents. It's a lot of extra plastic that deliver a gaming look that many love, but to me, it just doesn't seem necessary. It looks a bit outdated, especially compared to the 15-inch Lenovo Legion Y530 I reviewed, but it certainly stands out.
There's a lot of room for ports, and Dell makes good on the space. You get on the right side HDMI 2.0, Thunderbolt 3 with four lanes of PCIe, two USB-A 3.1, and a 3.5mm audio jack, and on the left, you get RJ45 Ethernet, another USB-A 3.1, an SD card reader, and the large barrel-style charging port. There's also a Kensington lock slot for safekeeping. You can connect a speedy Thunderbolt 3 dock for extra connectivity, and, since the G7 is advertised as VR-ready, you have the stock ports to handle those systems.
A power button resides in the top-right corner, but it doesn't have a fingerprint reader built in, nor is there an IR camera in the spacious bezel above the display. The 720p front-facing camera captures a respectable image, and I wouldn't be too shy to use it for video conferencing or while gaming streaming. Two front-firing speakers are built into the grating just below the palm rests, and for a gaming laptop, they're not bad. There's some severe volume that doesn't distort when loud, and the sound is full; explosions and bullets kind of hit you in the chest, but for something like competitive play I would still not stray from a headset.
