How to choose a gaming laptop? When buying it, you should know what specs you are looking for in a gaming laptop. Graphics card, processor, RAM, battery capacity or price? In this post, we go over the 5 key features to consider and introduce to 4 top gaming laptop brands for you.

Choosing a Gaming Laptop You Should Consider 5 Feature

1.Graphics Card (aka GPU)

Experts suggest that graphics card is where most of your money should go. Most of the time, you will be choosing between AMD and NVIDIA (all our top picks in this post sport NVIDIA GeForce graphics). With that, each brand has a wide choice of graphic cards with different specs — and this is where the choosing process may get complicated.

It is a general rule that the performance/value ratio goes up with the price — and extra $50, for example, will give you a palpable boost in performance.

2.Processor (CPU)

Here, you will have a similar choice of AMD and Intel, with Intel currently having much better offerings. Three of the top picks in out list come with the flagship Core i7 (offering the most raw power) and one model with the Core i5, which is typically enough for most gamers.

If you are on a budget, it makes sense to go with the i5 and put in the extra money into the graphics card and memory.

3.Random Access Memory (RAM)

If your laptop has 8GB of RAM, this should be good enough for most of today’s games. If you tend to stream your gaming or pair it with extensive video editing, we suggest you upgrade to 12GB or 16GB for a smoother experience.

4.Screen Size & Resolution

Here it’s a game of trade-offs. Needless to say, a bigger screen offers a better gaming experience. At the same time, a smaller screen makes a laptop more portable — and this means you can take your gaming just about anywhere. A 1080P display should be good enough even for demanding gamers while if you want to work with 4K content, do bear in mind that it will take a big toll on your hardware.

5.Battery Capacity

You may want to indulge in lengthy gaming sessions even without an outlet nearby — and this is where the battery issue comes into play. However, even laptops with a notably large battery capacity tend to give you just about an hour of uninterrupted gameplay on high settings.
