In recent years, the gaming industry has seen a rapid increase in its customer base. This, in turn, has increased the demand for portable computer systems that provide the best possible gaming experience. Determining the best gaming laptops becomes a big task.

If you’re a gaming nerd, then you know that when getting a laptop for gaming purpose, there are several things to look out for.

You have to consider its operating system (would you prefer windows OS or macOS). The screen size (anything under 13 inches should be struck off your list immediately), the battery life (an average of 5 hours would be satisfactory) and the weight (for maximum portability in case you need to haul it around).  Based on the reviews conducted by tecrada.com on numerous gaming sites;

These are some of the best laptops for gaming:

  • HP Omen 15: At 2.2 kg and a screen size of 15.6 inches, the HP Omen 15 is a good place to start. Priced at about $1100, the laptop with its 8gb RAM provides a satisfactory performance when used for entry-level gaming. With its battery that lasts for an average of 5 hours, HP Omen 15 is the perfect compromise between cost and performance.
  • Alienware 17: The Alienware 17 is one of the best gaming laptops out there. Its combined strong performance, innovative tracking, sleek design and comfortable typing features thus making it one of the most widely used. It features an average battery life of 6 hours, a 13.3-inch screen, and about 8GB RAM.
  • Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501: with its extremely sleek design, the Asus ROG Zephyrus is not here to play. Unlike the previous trend of gaming laptops being extremely bulky and lacking in aesthetics, this laptop has managed to marry the thinness of an Ultrabook with the sheer power of the Alienware. It is “mind-blowingly” powerful, innovative and possesses a silent cooling feature.
  • MSI GP72: this features a powerful Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM. 1 B of memory space and a Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics card. However, what the MSI GP72 obviously lacks in battery life, it makes up for in speed and graphics. Ultimately, it is one of the best laptops you can get for under $1500.
  • Dell Inspiron 7000: if you’re looking for the perfect entry level gaming laptop, you probably shouldn’t look beyond the Dell Inspiron 7000. It has the processor power, the battery life, and the screen size to give you a near perfect gaming experience. The latest models have a built-in Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics card. This will enable you to explore a wide variety of games. With 16gb of RAM and a 1tb hard disk space, the Dell Inspiron 7000 is definitely the best gaming laptop under $1500.

While deciding on the gaming laptop to get, you should note that the kind of technology possessed by these systems does not come cheap; It would be near impossible to get anything under $1000 today.

However, they are one of the best possible investments you could make; so study the reviews, decide on your priority features and take your gaming to the next level.
