Initially I wanted an XPS 15 because i love the screen, build, etc.
Then I saw the Dell G15 Gaming Laptop deals recently, and thought I'd get better value with respect to higher specs, dedicated GPU, etc. compared to what I'd get for the XPS 15 at the same cost. Almost pulled the trigger today but i'm a little torn.
I really won't be gaming much outside of Tabletop Simulator, so I feel like getting a 3060 is really going to waste in a sense. I assume something like the new Intel Iris Xe Graphics should be fine as i hear integrated graphics are better these days
I also realistically won't travel too much with it, and mainly will be a desktop replacement so it doesn't need to be crazy thin/light.
Outside of Dell XPS, are there any other recommendations I should consider that won't be as expensive but meet the criteria below? Otherwise i was going to wait until black friday and look for a Dell XPS 15 with the below mentioned specs.
Ultimately would like:
- 15 inch
- 16GB RAM
- 512GB SSD (or 1 TB)
- Would like a nice quality screen for netflix/youtube watching around the house (OLED screen would be ideal, but not necessary, any high quality screen would be good)
- Thunderbolt 3/4 (I have a thunderbolt dock I'm using for my work laptop right now, and would love to have a single cable to switch between my dual monitor display from work laptop to home laptop)
That's about it. I'm not very familiar with popular laptop models these days outside of Dell XPS.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
