For everyday tasks like web browsing and office applications, the Dell Latitude 5430 offers better portability and longer battery life, which makes it suitable for on-the-go use. On the other hand, the Gigabyte G5, with its more powerful processor and graphics card, is better for gaming, 3D rendering, and machine learning tasks, but it is heavier and has shorter battery life. If you need a balanced laptop for both general and intensive tasks, consider the G5; however, if you prioritize mobility and battery life for less demanding applications, the Latitude 5430 may be the better option.

Vaidyanathan Subramaniam | April 2023
"The Gigabyte G5 KE is a midrange gaming laptop that checks most boxes. Gigabyte makes good use of the Core i5-12500H and RTX 3060 Laptop GPU combo, and we find no untoward issues with overall performance. The dual-fan quad-heatpipe cooling arrangement does well to ensure that the underlying hardware doesn't throttle under load. That being said, the display is below par when compared to 2023 standards, especially when competing devices."
