The best laptops for gaming

When you’re away from your home but you want to play games, the laptop’s normally your best option for top quality gaming. The best laptops for gaming don’t have to be the most expensive ones. Even though you need a good graphics card, a decent screen and quality speakers, you don’t need to spend the earth to get your hands on something that doesn’t get in the way of your gaming experience.

Schenker XMG P504

Although the P504 is heavy and a bit too big to be carried around comfortably, this is a laptop that performs well. The battery life isn’t all that great, so only buy this if you’re going to use it indoors.

Asus RoG G750JZ

This is a little more expensive, but the additional £300 gives you a Blu-ray drive, 2.1 speakers, and Thunderbolt interface so you’re well equipped for most forms of entertainment. Since this is a machine that can carry out tasks like video editing with ease, it makes child’s play of gaming. Definitely one to put on your short list.

Alienware 17

For similar money to the Asus you could get your hands on the Alienware 17. It’s not perfect because a laptop that cost this sort of money should come with an SSD, but the laptop makes up for that with top quality performance when you start playing games on it.

Chillblast Defiant 2 Mini

For less than £1,000, you can’t go wrong with the Chillblast Defiant 2 Mini. Unfortunately, you can’t specify the graphics card but you get decent performance for the price. What makes it one of the best laptops for gaming is its size. This is a device that’s small enough and light enough to be carried in a backpack.

Final thoughts

Ultimately, the best laptops for gaming are those that are the strongest, lightest and most reliable. If you’re after a laptop that can do a little more than gaming, you’ll need to spend big money. But if playing games, browsing and entertainment is what you’re after, you can’t go far wrong with any of the laptops discussed here.
