Can’t get a gaming PC on the West Coast anymore? Try these gaming laptops

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest news, you may have spotted that a handful of states have banned the sale of high-end gaming PCs under a new energy bill. In the states of California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington, a new energy bill has meant that many high-end pre-built gaming PCs have been effectively banned from sale. Worried? Don’t be. You might struggle to get a full gaming PC for your desktop right now but there are plenty of great gaming laptops from Dell that conform to the rules. We’ve taken a look at two of the best — the Dell G3 15 Gaming Laptop and the Dell G15 Gaming Laptop. Right now, there are substantial savings for both systems but you’ll need to be quick. As with all of Dell’s sales, stock is very limited so once it’s gone, it’s gone. You won’t want to miss out.
