It is recommended to download the driver for video cards from the manufacturer’s site (NVIDIA, Intel), and not the DELL site.
Breakaway latches on the side of the bolt are not latches, but safety lugs that play the role of a seal and indicate whether the laptop has been opened or not.
When powered only from the battery, the laptop does not operate at full capacity even when selecting the "high performance" profile.
If you forgot your BIOS password, you can unlock it by entering your service tag.

If you need to add something to the header, please send it to me (the author of the topic) in the PM.

Preliminary summary after a week of active use. Dell 7588 laptop (G7 15) in the following configuration: i7-8750H, 16gb RAM, 1tb HDD, 128gb SSD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max Q 6GB GDDR5.

Classic, strict. The backlight of the keyboard, the symbols on it and the DELL logo on the blue cover, combined with the white color of the case on the outside and black inside, look very unusual and fresh and cause only positive emotions, and, in my opinion, such a color scheme looks much nicer than just black Colour. The keyboard backlight has two levels of brightness. But you can turn it off with one key. In the light, even the maximum level of brightness of the backlight does not cause discomfort, and in the dark it does not “cut” the eye.

The assembly is very high quality. No squeaks, no backlash. Screen hinges rigidly fix it at the right angle. The laptop is easy to open with one hand. The keyboard is not pressed through. The cover of the laptop is of good plastic, a little bit rough, and the inner panel is metal. Sebaceous traces of the hands on the cover are not visible, due to the fact that it is white, but the dirt can be seen immediately. In turn, with the block of the keyboard and the area under the arms all the way around. In general - the assembly is super.
There is no blue diode on the plug, as in 7577. Therefore, his eyes are not "corn".

Clear, with sufficient viewing angles. There are no highlights and dead pixels.

The columns are located in front. There are minimal bass. For me, the sound is good.

In games, the laptop is of course noisy. In normal mode, it is not audible at all.

Performance in games.
So far, I only played Witcher 3. The game itself put all the settings on ultra and turned on NVIDIA HairWorks. Throttling was not observed even with a long game time. The video card was heated in the range of 63-70. The temperature of the processor is not measured.

Bottom line: I am delighted with the laptop and recommend it for purchase, especially since there are no analogues for the same price.

Rep: (3)
Finally, at least some reviews with temperature have appeared on YouTube. I was upset because the temperature is the same as in 7577, some even slightly higher (if you compare two videos from one channel).
On G3 in Battlefield GPU - 84, CPU - 92.

* DVAnfimov,
What does dirt on white mean? Dust or when chocolate ate, licked fingers and opened the laptop?))

Rep: (11)
* MaxximMG
It means chocolate. So if a person is neat then there will be no dirt) There is no dust on it.

* DVAnfimov , I welcome, I was interested in this device, I choose between xiaomi mi gaming and dellg7. The question is, can you simultaneously connect 2 monitors to xiaomi? So that all 3 work at the same time, without any extra devices, as like as external? Who vkurse?

Rep: (11)
* awapa87,
I have not tried, but most likely yes, judging by the presence of HDMI 2.0 and Thunderbolt 3.

Rep: (12)
How much will the cooling system in G3 be worse than in G5 and G7? I try on 17 inches and see, for example, that the price on the G7 15 and G3 17 site is the same, while on the G3 SSD side for 256GB versus 128 for G7?

Rep: (11)
MaxximMG @ 05.24.18, 14:26*
On G3 in Battlefield GPU - 84, CPU - 92.

On the G7 today there was a maximum of 75 on the video card. Hence we draw conclusions about the difference in cooling systems.

I also sit, I can not decide. One and the same grade +/-, but the G3 can take 17.3 "and the G7 is only 15.6". The problem is that it really does not understand what the G7 is better than a more decorated appearance and other cool?

Rep: (11)
* Nistelrooy It is no better than anything else. Well, another modification with i9 if only.

Is G3 suitable for studying at a university for a programmer? Is it too heavy? (2.5 kg) And does it have enough battery life?

Rep: (11)
* Dima_su About how heavy or not everyone decides for himself, for example, the G7 seems to me not at all heavy, I wear it in the DELL corporate backpack. G7 has about the same work time as 7577. Personally, I have enough. You can look at the G3 in reviews or ask your colleague jaremin134, he seems to have acquired G3 for himself.

The presence of Thunderbolt, unlike the G3
