Walmart's selling a GeForce GTX 1060-equipped Dell gaming laptop for a ludicrously low $880

You don't find GTX 1060 laptops this cheap very often.

Walmart is helping you get your game on this week, and it has nothing to do with consoles. The big box retailer is selling the Dell G5 gaming laptop with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 for $880. That’s about $70 cheaper than Microcenter, which has this same laptop available for $950, while an Amazon third-party marketplace seller has it for more than a grand. You don’t find GTX 1060-equipped gaming laptops under $1,000 very often.

This model of the Dell G5 is a 15.6-inch laptop with a 1080p display, a quad-core, 2.3GHz Intel “Coffee Lake” Core i5-8300H, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB boot SSD, and a 1TB hard drive. Walmart’s description says the graphics card is a GTX 1060 Ti, which would be even more exciting if that card existed. (It’s really a GTX 1060 Max-Q.)

Typos in the description aside, you can expect some pretty great gaming with this configuration. Paired with a Core i5, the energy-efficient Max-Q version of the GTX 1060 should deliver a solid 1080p gaming experience even with all the eye candy cranked up in games.

If laptop gaming isn’t your thing, Walmart also has an Alienware Aurora desktop available for $1250 with a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card and a Core i7 processor. That’s about $200 off its usual price.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
