Five of the best gaming laptops in 2019
Gaming laptops have progressed impressively in recent years.
Whilst their desktop counterparts are rigidly placed machines, gaming laptops ensure that your favourite games – whether it be PC or online – can be played wherever you want to play them.
And, they have never been as powerful or as efficient with innovative CPU and GPU technology as well as high resolutions and frame rates bringing them as close as possible to the desktop version. Here are five to look out for.
The most powerful gaming laptop out there at present, the Alienware Area-51m is ready to take users out of this world. It is definitely an investment – well over £2,000 at Currys PC World – it is not exactly cheap – but for a gamer, it’s one worth making.
It’s a gaming laptop that can stay powerful for as long as you want it to with everything being user-upgradeable – including replaceable graphics and a socketed CPU. Though quite large, it is certainly easy on the eye and offers virtual reality readiness and a comfy keyboard from which to play.
Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701
With a name perhaps larger than its thickness – the laptop is just 0.7 inches thick – the Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 packs a hefty punch in raw power. Any PC game can be played on Ultra whilst its thin frame makes the laptop easily transportable. Its impressive RGB lighting also enhances the user’s experience whether playing PC games or casino or mobile free slots.
However, it will set you back a penny or two with the Asus machine coming in at £2,200. Hardly for the faint-hearted, yet it’s certainly a thing of beauty and performance.
MSI GS65 Stealth
Another with a mouthful for a name, the MSI GS65 Stealth is a laptop of ingenious design. Coming in at just 0.69 inches thick, the Stealth is as sleek as a gaming laptop can get. Yet, for its size, it is incredibly powerful. Its fast display and effective thermal management enables hours of endless fun and money-making if playing casino/slots.
Of tremendous value, priced at just under £1,300, the MSI GS65 Stealth trounces its rivals in terms of value for money.
Despite being around for a considerable number of time, the Razer Blade is still one of the household names of gaming laptops. Its 2019 model includes a Nvidia GeForce RTZ 2080 – a devilish amount of power for something as thin as the Blade. At just over £1,500, the Razer Blade is pricey, but, with an abundance of style and power, it may be worth shelling out for.
Lenovo Legion Y740
If anything epitomised a complete package in gaming laptops, it is the Lenovo Legion Y740. With powerful internal components and new Nvidia discrete graphics, the Legion is one of the most attractive in the market. Its effective thermal cooling system and high refresh rate makes it even more appealing, though it’s £1,799 price tag may deter some potential buyers.
