    Dell's model page can be a bit ambiguous, but the $2329 G7 config shows 90whr battery. The $1699 G5 config shows it as well.
    They list the 90whr batt more clearly when you click "customize & buy".

    The pricing on the current G7 series seems a little too expensive imo and the current M15/M17 with a similar config comes pretty close as well. As such not seeing a lot of incentive to go with the G7 with an RTX (G 5 is better priced)

    Thank you. Got lost thought had navigated to USA store front, (but was actually still in the same UK pages, where its only 60wh in this country). Glad to see that it's available in US.

    Another question:

    In uk website, there are 2 G5 configs. One of them at 1349 says:

    "15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) Anti-glare LED Backlight Non-touch Narrow Border IPS Display"

    Wherare there is the more expensive (+100 GBP) sku, which highlights a different display. Which then says:

    "15.6 inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS 300-nits Display"

    Now this is confusing in two ways. Firstly, it's saying the on the cheaper SKU the lcd is 'non touch'. But why specifically state that, if you then are not going to also say that there is a more expensive option with a touch screen. Which the 300 nits one does not claim to be.

    Secondly, hidden in the * next to the splurb about display. WHERE It says:

    "Visualize the victory
    See what your game is capable of with powerhouse, NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 20-series graphics and up to 6GB GDDR5 dedicated memory. Fierce, flicker-free visuals come alive with optional 144Hz and G-sync displays.*Plus viewing all of the action on a FHD display with a narrow bezel lets you get deeper into the mission."

    and then you click on the asterisk * in that sentence. A pop-up window then says:

    "Important Details
    On NVIDIA RTX 2060 GPUs and above.

    Close"


    Well both of these skus ^^ at 1349 and 1449 have the RTX 2060. Yet neither of them specifically state that they are 144hz. So is it that they are BOTH 144hz panels? Or only the most expensive sku has a 144hz panel?

    I believe none are 144hz panels. You need to get it mentioned as "15.6 inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS 144Hz Display' to be the 144hz panel

    Hi,
    If you go to support page for new G5 and G7 series you can download Setup and Specification manual witch states all of relevant info for these notebooks:
    1. They all have 2 RAM slots (very important because product page is little confusing on that part)
    2. 15'' version have three options for display: 220nits 60Hz, 300nits 60 Hz, and 300nits 144Hz
    3. 17" version has two options for display: 300nits 60Hz, and 300nits 144Hz
    So if sku description for 15" says FHD IPS and no luminance number, than it is probably 220nits (the worst one), for 144Hz it should say 144Hz, otherwise is 60Hz, 17" panels should all be 300nits.
    There is also info on GPUs:
    1. For G5 15" versions there are listed options: 1050Ti, 2060, 2070,
    2 For G7 15" there are: 1050Ti, 2060, 2070, 2080,
    3. For G7 17" there are: 2060, 2070, 2080.
    I think that G7 15" version won't be available in europe, but could be wrong.
    Hope this helps

    Oh okay, that's annoying, i don't like the silver hinge on the G5 15... I was hoping to get the G7 15.
    Ownordisown channel is supposed to drop his review of the G5 15 this weekend, i hope it performs well and have good temps.
    An i7, an RTX2060 for 1400€ would be nice if it's not a block of lava.

    ooh.. I could not wait for that as well. :) Hopefully he would also be able to do the G7, as well as the other RTX2060 Equipped laptops. (Could not wait to see one for the AW M15) :3
