Gaming does not need to be a pastime that is confined to your home. With the right laptop, it’s possible to take your gaming everywhere you go, even if it’s into the middle of the wilderness.
These are laptops that provide the same gaming specs as most current desktops, with the added bonus that they can go wherever you do, and they won’t all break the bank either.
1. MSI GS65 Stealth Thin
While it’s already two years old, the GS65 remains among the best laptops that money can buy. It boasts powerful specs, including a 144hz, FHD 1080p screen, an i7-8750H, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q, DDR4 RAM, and a heft 500 gig M.2 SSD.
It also offers a long battery life in comparison with other gaming laptops with similar specs, making it perfect for business. It’s possible to get the laptop with lower specs while also reducing the price, but buyers should note that the GS65 lacks G-Sync functionality.
2. Acer Predator Helios 300
Acer is right at the top of the pile when it comes to brilliant gaming laptops, and their Predator Helios 300 is a testament to this. It’s among the cheapest upper-mid gaming laptops on the market, and while it’s possible to get the machine with the very latest hardware, it’s also possible to have it with a GTX 1060 and 16 gigs of DDR4 RAM.
Newer models boast the more powerful 1660 Ti, allowing the user to do all of their online business from checking out election betting odds and sending emails, to playing some of the latest video games.
3. Razer Blade 15
Considered by many to be the very best gaming laptop on the market right now, the Blade 15 is the ultimate combination of sleep design and powerful hardware. While among the most expensive on the market, the high price is backed up by specs that match most high-tier desktops. With a Nvidia RTX 2080, 2666Mh DDR4 RAM at 16GB and up, and a huge, 80Whr battery, the Razer Blade 15 is the best choice for those that want to take a fully, high-FPS gaming experience with them wherever they go.
In fact, tests have shown that the battery is able to last up to 5 hours of heavy gaming, quite a feat when most laptops top out at around 4 hours of normal usage.
4. Gigabyte Aero 15X v8
Gigabyte has never been late to the part, and their Aero 15X v8 is a great combination of recreation and productivity. With an i7-8750H, a GTX 1070 Max-Q, and an IPS 144hz 1080p screen, the Aero can deliver just as much as most of its counterparts. It also offers some of the best battery life on the market thanks to a large 94Whr battery, meaning it’s the best choice for those that find themselves travelling often and don’t always have access to a wall socket.
The Aero 15X also comes with an option of a 4K screen, and while it lacks the refresh rate of the 1080 version, it’s a good choice for those that like to stream in high quality.
