The design is nothing fancy from the pages of fairy books, it is simply built for survival on transit. Anyway, literally out of the box, the Dell G5 15 5590 mostly impresses. The chassis is a mix of metal and plastic and feels extremely robust. The monochrome-backlit keyboard, likewise, is absolutely rock solid. Put simply, this is a portable that feels like it can take a beating.

Styling is subjective, of course, but the Dell G5 15 5590 charts its own path with its ribbed chassis sides and strip of polished black plastic. By today’s standards, the bezels are merely moderately slim and the lower chin is pretty fat. But at less than an inch thick, it’s pretty svelte for a system with this much punch.

The ports are worth writing home about, they are a whole highlight on their own. With three USB A ports, a USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 port, HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, LAN and an SD card reader, you really do have all your bases covered. It’s also worth noting that most of these ports plus the power connector are at the rear of the chassis, ensuring a minimum of cable clutter.


There are so many options for the Dell G5 15 5590 it is almost unbelievable. It comes with an Intel six-core Core i7-8750H CPU. Although it’s an 8th rather than 9th gen chip, but there are no implications. It’s all the CPU you’re ever going to need in a laptop.

On the graphics the Nvidia RTX 2060, is the entry-level GPU in Nvidia’s latest ray-tracing capable Turing generation of graphics chips, but very powerful in outright terms. It’s paired with a 15.6-inch 1080p display based on IPS panel technology. Dell optionally offers 144Hz refresh support, but our review rig is limited to 60Hz.

Elsewhere, the storage combo includes a 128GB M.2 SSD with a 1TB HDD and 16GB of RAM. The storage setup is a little unusual, but in theory offers both high performance for a limited number of critical apps, plus plenty of capacity for everything else.


The battery can last for nearly 10 hours of movie playback, which is quite impressive for a budget laptop. However, more intense gaming, document creation and video calling cut the battery time to 4 hours. This is pretty much okay considering the price of the laptop.


The Dell G5 15 5590 does not set any new standards, it is nothing out of the ordinary but it has a serious combination of features that are important for gamers and the battery lasts pretty much long compared to other laptops. This gives you a robust build, a decent screen, well matched components and strong performance in the latest games, not to mention support for the latest gaming features including ray tracing.
