PCs are more interested in gaming laptops than ever before. On the one hand, this is due to the high prices of desktop graphics cards and on the other hand, the high quality of gaming laptops that have achieved. We recommend top devices from the entry level to the high end. When buying, you will find out what to look for.
At a glance, the best gaming laptops will be revealed below.
Nitro 5 is powered by the Intel Core i5 and the GeForce RTX
The price range for good gaming laptops is between 900 and 1,100 dollars. The entry level model of the Acer Nitro 5 has an Intel Core i5 10300H, 8 gigabytes of RAM, 512 gigabytes of storage and a 144 hertz display.
Modern games in Full HD resolution and high details can be played with the equipment. The laptop is too weak on the chest for the theoretically possible light simulation ray tracing, but the upscaling technology ensures a higher frame rate with appealing image quality for compatible games. If you don’t have enough RAM, you can expand it up to 32 gigabytes with another bar.

Buying advice: how to find the right gaming laptop.

Who needs a gaming laptop, and what is it?
A gaming laptop is a specific type of notebook. A mobile computer with a built in screen and a fixed keyboard was developed to play computer games. A display with a high refresh rate and a fast processor are some of the special features found in gaming laptops.
Where do you want to play?
You should consider a gaming PC if you only play at home. This will give you better gaming performance and will allow your desktop to be upgraded more comprehensively. Fans make less noise. In the current market situation with high graphics card prices, desktop computers are the cheaper choice. If you want to play games on the go, gaming laptops are the right choice.
Which games are you into?
If you only play graphically less demanding games such as most popular online games, you don’t need a gaming laptop with a particularly powerful graphics card. It’s enough if you have a model like the Nitro 5 with the RTX 3050. If you want smooth gaming of modern games such as “Halo Infinite” and “Forza 5” in Full HD resolution and high settings, the Omen by HP 16 and the Legion 5 are enough.
If you want to play modern games in QHD resolution or with higher refresh rates, we recommend a model with the RTX 3070 or 3070 Ti. If you want to play games in 4K resolution or QHD with lots of ray tracing effects, a laptop such as the XMG Neo 15 or the RTX 3080 Ti is the best choice.
The laptop should be sustainable.
Most games will continue to run on all laptops we recommend for the foreseeable future. It is possible that a small video memory such as the 4 GHz of the RTX 3050 and the 6 GHz of the RTX 3060 will make it more difficult to load more complex effects. The RTX 3070 Ti (Asus ROG Zephyrus M16) is a future proof laptop because it has 8 gigabytes of video memory. If you want to play at high resolutions for a few more years or even enjoy ray tracing effects, you should consider a laptop with an RTX 3080 (XMG Neo 15) or 3080 Ti.
