Ever since the first GUI based first person shooter (fps) was launched, people went crazy with the level of details that came embedded with the game. Since then, the gaming industry has come a long way and evolved as a major market leader surpassing the global film industry with an expected revenue of 230 billion dollars by 2022.
Gaming laptops are a huge deal now, and everybody wants to carry one with high end specs and best cooling technology to beat the heat. With the industry getting competitive and the technological advancements making things cheaper, here are 4 gaming beasts you should definitely check out right now!
1. Acer Predator Helios 300:
Priced around a thousand dollars, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is definitely a power packed beast worth owning.
It boasts a Nvidia GTX 1060 which offers the perfect 1080p @ 60 fps gaming performance. Along with the attractive pricing, the Helios 300 comes with a good battery life, an i7 7700HQ processor and 16GB DDR4 RAM. We do feel a bit disappointed with the DDR4 RAM, still the included SSD makes it worth every penny.
2. Asus ROG Strix GL502VS-DS71:
Asus has emerged as a market leader nowadays when it comes to high end gaming laptops. The laptops not only sport an extraordinary build quality but also a well balanced hardware on board.
The Asus ROG comes with a 15.6 inch wide view LCD with a whopping 120Hz refresh rate coupled with G-Sync.
The Asus ROG boasts an Intel i7-7700HQ along with a Nvidia GTX 1070 with 8GB of ammunition to make anything run ultra smooth. The laptop also has a 128GB SSD and comes with 16GBs of DDR4 RAM.
3. Dell Alienware:
In a world where most gaming laptops are stuck with a 60Hz refresh rate with an IPS display, this laptop is certainly worth your while.
With an option of 13 or 15 or 17 inch variant in terms of screen size, the alienware is definitely a winner when it comes to visual appeal.
The specifications vary depending on the variant you choose, but no matter what you buy you are guaranteed to bring home the sexiest gaming laptop with a solid build quality. Although we do feel it to be a little overpriced and bulkier when we compare it with the rest, Dell has made sure the visual appeal keeps you satisfied overall.
4. HP Omen 17:
While HP is mostly popular in the developing countries with its gigantic range of budget laptops, they certainly have mastered the art of building a sleek gaming behemoth.
While portability is a huge factor when it comes to gaming laptops today, the HP omen certainly is sporty and light machine to carry.
The specs are almost same as the Asus ROG with an additional option of a 4k screen upgrade.
We however, will suggest you to refrain from taking the upgrade as it will put an extra pressure on your GTX 1070 and affect your gaming performance.
Although the laptop comes power-packed at an attractive price point, we do feel that HP should’ve included a 120Hz screen by default as in the Asus ROG.
5. MSI GS65 Stealth:
Gone are the days when gaming laptops sent a chill down the spine due to the massive weight one had to carry in gigantic backpacks. MSI GS65 Stealth is a sleek, well thought masterpiece with it’s weight around 4 pounds.
The machine however, packs the soul of a warrior with its GTX 1070 MAX-Q 8GB DDR5.
Besides that firepower, it is powered by a 6 core 8th generation intel i7-8750 with clock speeds ranging upto 4.1 GHz. In terms of looks, specifications or portability, this is a total beast!
Gaming laptops have become a lot cheaper due to the cut-throat competition in the gaming hardware section. Well, we certainly don’t mind getting our favorite laptops at a cheaper price point as well. We suggest you to check out the reviews before you actually buy one of the laptops listed above to make sure you get the deal that suits you the best!
