Best Affordable Gaming Laptops

Written by Frank Kremer

Looking for a gaming laptop you can actually afford? Consider one of the following:

Asus ROG GL752VW

This surprisingly affordable gaming laptop comes with a powerful 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor. The processor can handle the most demanding of games from Diablo III to the latest installment of Battlefield. Demanding games like Grand Theft Auto VI run on this laptop without a lag. The graphics are super smooth thanks to 1920×1080 HD resolution display. Also, the screen is glare-proof and matte, which makes visuals easy to look at regardless of the room lighting condition. The cherry on top of this cake is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M graphics card that ensures a vivid gaming experience. The graphics card comes in 2 GB but can easily be upgraded to 4 GB. The only downside is that the 15.6-inch laptop can be a bit heavy to carry.

Dell Inspiron I7559

If you want to get work done and play, then this is the gaming laptop to go with. The Dell Inspiron brand is super solid and is known to deliver. The laptop comes with an incredibly powerful quad-core 6th generation Intel Core i7 clocking 3.5GHz. The latest titles will play without a hassle on this one. The graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. You can upgrade this to 980M for the most demanding games for only a couple of hundred dollars more. It’s worth the price considering the power of the processor. Also, this laptop has 16GB DDR3L RAM capacity, which means this computer can multitask without freezing the OS. As mentioned before, working and gaming. The hybrid hard disk has 1TB HDD storage and 8GB SSD to ensure faster loading times. As for cons, the screen size is a tad bit too small and the keyboard is not backlit.

Dell 15.6-Inch Gaming Laptop

Dell’s own gaming laptop is big and faster than anyone thought it could be. If you cannot afford the I7559 or are unsatisfied with it, this is the next best choice. It comes with a Core i5 processor, which only has slightly lesser processing power than the Core i7. It can handle most of the latest gaming titles. If you limit multitasking and exit programs running in the background, this laptop can handle the most demanding titles as well. The laptop is big, so portability is limited. It has 8 GB of RAM, which is not bad. Unfortunately, the RAM cannot be upgraded. The large display will give you a great gaming experience without question. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M VRAM with 4 GB will ensure that games run smoothly without an issue.

Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black

This is one of Acer’s more powerful laptops that budget gamers will love. It has a 2.6GHz Core i7 processor that pulls no punches when it comes to performance. The 8 GB RAM is suitable for most gaming needs, and can be easily upgraded to 16 GB if needed. High capacity storage of 1 TB is available, so you don’t have to rely on external hard drives. The overall booting and loading time is a bit slow because the laptop doesn’t come with an SSD. Still, it delivers an excellent budget gaming experience.

If you are on the market for a great but affordable gaming laptop, try one of the above.
