According to numerous reports, Dell is already aware that not everyone can afford high-end models such as Alienware 17 and Alienware 15. Notably, Dell announced these laptops earlier this week for a starting price of $1,500. Coming back to Dell’s latest set of G3, G5, and G7 product lines, they are priced at $749 only. Even though they carry such an easy-going price tag, there are a lot of premium-category features packed in the product.
The company has ended up carving out room for features including Intel’s latest quad-core and hex-core mobile CPUs.
