Best Gaming Laptops 2019

15th July 2019
The evolution of gaming laptops in a such a short amount of time means they're more powerful than ever before. These days you will find powerful components, such as the Nvidia RTX graphics cards, in some of the lightest laptops on the market. While many will still prefer to build a custom PC to run games at the highest frame rates and resolutions, it's not for everybody. By selecting one of the best gaming laptops on the market, you're guaranteed to get powerful performance and excellent hardware for a good price.

What to look for in a gaming laptop

Buying a gaming laptop can be difficult if you're new to the market. With various specifications for each series of laptop, finding the right gaming machine for your needs requires research. Here are a few handy tips for finding the best laptop for gaming:

  • Good GPU: Most games on the market are GPU-dependent and while you can upgrade these on desktop, it isn't always possible in laptops. A good graphics card ensures your laptop can play the latest games with high settings for a good few years.
  • Upgradable RAM and storage: Not all gaming laptops allow you to upgrade your RAM and storage. However, some will, so you can keep up with the latest changes.
  • Solid State Drive: Gamers know that an SSD is better for gaming for fast loading times, reducing the amount of cooling needed, as well as being more energy efficient.
  • Choose resolution or speed: The fastest displays of 144hz are 1920x1080 but a 4K screen has a higher resolution.
  • Battery life: No one expects a gaming laptop to last long on battery due to the power needed, so always keep your power supply close by to get the best performance.
Your decision on which gaming laptop you choose will be down to whether you're looking for an entry level model or something towards the top end. Our list of the best gaming laptops include options that will satisfy all PC gaming needs and budgets.
