PRICE COMPARISON

A minimal difference occurs in between prices of both the models. The G15 is considerably more expensive than its counterpart. The chief reason behind this is the large sized LED and quality graphics. It starts somewhere at $1300 compared to the $1100 range of G14.

FINAL VERDICT

There aren’t sharp sort of differences in between features of both the devices. Both the devices are identical to each other in terms of their mutual functioning because many of the features correlate with each other. However, G15’s advanced contrast ratio and SYN technology gives it an upper hand over G14. Another reason is the increased screen size of G15. If you are contemplating upon the budget, then G14 is still a fine option for you to pick up.
