Gaming Laptops

Gaming Laptops

The gaming computer market is no longer a simple niche where a group of kids buy their mechanical keyboards and colorful towers.

Today everyone plays to a greater or lesser extent and enjoys the most demanding components in terms of installed RAM, graphics and cooling capacity.

Portable gaming grew thanks to the miniaturization of components, which enabled connections that weighed less and more space for ventilation.

Another key factor affecting weight reduction was the jump from mechanical to solid components. A good gaming laptop will no longer exclusively mount an HDD, but will instead opt for an SSD.

Looking for the ultimate computer to play, it is evident that the definitive team does not exist: they all are if you know how to choose correctly. The main manufacturers (ASUS, ACER, LENOVO, HP) have created sections dedicated exclusively to the game (Republic of Gamers, Predator, Legion, Omen) and the offer is broader than ever.

A player should consider guidelines such as the refresh rate of the screen (from 60 to 120 Hz), the space to install their games (256SSD and perhaps another 500GB in HDD), the quality of the keyboard (betting on backlit WASD keys and with good touch, analog response).

If we take a look into the most important factors we must talk about:

  • Graphics card: responsible for “moving” all those polygons and performing all the calculations, whether you’re doing photo retouching or landing in ‘Fortnite ‘.
  • RAM: not less than 6GB. Large gaming computers mount up to 32GB of RAM but in most laptops you would see up to 16GB. Of course as time passes it is becoming more common to see 32GB of ram used in gaming laptops.
  • Processor: one of the most important components of a laptop if not the most important. Although it might not be as crucial as the graphics card for games it is still very important for the responsiveness and the swiftness of the laptop. Moreover looking ahead in time you could say that the better the processor the longer it will take before you start to experience stutters and slow responsiveness. As of now we could say that a good CPU could not be anything less than a 8th generation i5 from Intel or a Ryzen 5 2600 or 2600x on the AMD side.
  • As for connectivity it’s always good to have a few USB ports, a Type C port, a headphone jack(a connection option that is starting to disappear) and an HDMI port.

Lets take a look at some of the best gaming laptops in the market right now.
