Looking for the best laptop for Roblox to experience everything it has to offer? Enter stage left: the Dell G5587. With its GPU and CPU combination, and substantial amount of RAM, it has the power to dive into more graphically intensive game modes that Roblox has to offer, with a healthy selection of ports to boot.

Why We Like It – Dell G5587

Expand your range of games to play within Roblox with the Dell G5587, featuring a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti, 16GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i7.

Pros
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti
  • 16GB of RAM w/ Intel Core i7
  • Healthy selection of ports
Cons
  • Performance is overkill for Roblox

Performance & Battery

Considering the Dell G5587 is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050TI, Intel Core i7-8750H, and 16GB or RAM, you’re way above the recommended specifications for running Roblox on high settings. Its processor is better than the Intel Core i5 in the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Gaming Laptop. In fact, it puts you right in line to play the more graphically intense game modes, like the FPS or horde mode servers. It also opens the door to other titles such as World of Warcraft. And for many hours too! You can get up to 6 hours of battery life out of the Dell G5587.

Ports, Expandability & Build Quality

Brushed metal lines the finish, with an outer magnesium alloy brace for improved durability. The Dell G5587 can take a beating, that much is clear. It needs toughness to protect the 1TB hard drive and 128GB SSD (for boot up). Both can be upgraded, as can the RAM for another 4 to 8GB. Your choice of ports are: three USB 3.1 Gen 1, a single Type-A, Thunderbolt 3, a single HDMI 2.0, audio jack, an SD card reader, and Noble lock slot.

Value

Considering the specifications of these particular Dell gaming laptops, you’re well above the requirements needed to run Roblox and run it really well—especially the more graphically intensive game modes. In fact, it runs so well that it’s way more than you actually need, if Roblox is the only game you or your child is playing. If playing Roblox is the goal, then you’re better off grabbing the Lenovo L340 i5 to save yourself money. For more gaming options, the Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim is the way to go.

Dell G5587 Wrap Up

The Dell G5587 is another case of a laptop having way more than it needs to run Roblox, but that’s not a bad thing—but it can be for your wallet. Having a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti, 16GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i7 opens up several avenues to some great games. So if you’re after more than just Roblox, by all means pick this laptop up.
