How To Find The Right Gaming Laptops
Budget: If you are a gaming freak, you can end up spending anywhere between $800 to $5,000 on a system depending on your lifestyle, budget, and passion for the games you want to play.
Weight: A gaming laptop is a bit heavier than a regular one since the configuration is higher. It may weigh between 4 to 13 pounds depending on the make, model, screen size and cooling pads.
“Tip: We suggest, if you are going for a gaming laptop, you should always look for a high-end configuration rather than settling for less. You can play low-end titles like Candy Crush with a regular one but what if you change your game? I am sure you are not going to change the laptop for your new game.”
Graphics: The most powerful and renowned name in graphics is Nvidia’s RTX 2080. If this doesn’t fit into your pocket, you may also look for older versions of Nvidia models such as GTX 1050 for a good frame rate. If you want to use a VR, don’t settle for anything lesser than GTX 1060. You also need to be sure that you know how to check your VRAM.
Processor: These days, we generally don’t settle without i3 or i5 laptops for regular use. And when it comes for gaming, we need to have a minimum of Intel Core i7 processor.
RAM: When it comes to gaming or multitasking we should use a minimum of 8GB to 32GB of RAM for an uninterrupted performance.
“Tip: One should always avoid touch screen laptops for gaming as they are much expensive and drain the battery much faster.”
Refresh Rate: One should always get a laptop with a minimum of 60-Hertz refresh rate and up to a millisecond response time to cut down on input lag and ensure smoother images.
Screen Size: Generally for gaming, people use a high-end laptop with 17 or 18-inch screen however some 15-inch laptops comes with serious muscle and solves the purpose. High-end laptops are hard to carry and handle while on the other hand, few portable 13- and 14-inch models are also available with gaming versions which are easy to carry though lacks higher-end components.
“Tip: If you want to make an online purchase for some hefty discounts, ensure that you go and try the laptop, its keyboard and console on a local store before you buy one.”
