Buying a new laptop can be tough. This is especially the case when you plan to use it for gaming. Not every laptop is suitable for playing the newest video games, so you need to choose it more carefully than you’d choose a desktop or a gaming console. Your safest bet is to go for one of the laptops that have proven to be among the best gaming laptops. That said, we singled out 6 of these you should definitely check out before you make any final decisions.

Gigabyte Aero 15

One of the best things about laptops is that you can carry them wherever you want. However, when it comes to gaming laptops, you usually need to get this gigantic machine you’re embarrassed to take out in public. Luckily, this isn’t the case with Gigabyte Aero 15. This laptop is as tiny and light as possible, and it doesn’t hurt its gaming performance at all. It packs a 6-core Intel I7-8750H and Nvidia GeForce 1060, which is exactly what you should be looking for in your new gaming laptop.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M GM501

This machine picks up where the previous one left off – it is thin but fulfills all the gaming needs you might have. Not only does the new Asus ROG Zephyrus M GM501 come with an Intel i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce 1070 graphic card, but it also has improved keyboard and audio quality. The battery life has improved as well, but it still feels a bit short. If you decide to opt for this model, bear in mind that it has an upgradable memory which is a huge plus.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming

If you want a real gaming laptop, it usually means you need to splash out. However, this is no longer the case, since you can have a new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming on the cheap. It offers an Intel i5-7300HQ processor and Nvidia GeForce 1050. This indeed is a lot of muscle for an affordable gaming laptop, so this model is definitely worth taking a closer look at. If you decide to choose this, you’ll be able to run all of today’s games at 1080p.

Acer Predator 15

Another machine you should consider getting is Acer Predator 15. If you’ve decided to get a gaming laptop, this machine is guaranteed to go give you everything you need. It packs an Intel i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce 1070, and it has been specifically designed to keep the heat down in order to maintain the performance up. This design matches Acer Predator 15’s gaming performance so investing in this gaming machine really does make a lot of sense. We really like the way experts at Acer included a mix of black and red into the design.

Alienware 13 R3

If you’re looking for something different, the new Alienware 13 R3 may be exactly what you need. The design of this laptop is different; the heat sinks have been moved behind the screen. This resulted in the chassis being a lot thinner, which is something we don’t get to see so often. It packs either an i5 or i7 Inter Core and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 we talked about earlier. Another thing that caught our attention when it comes to Alienware 13 R3 is the addition of an OLED touch display.

Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

Last but not least, we have Dell XPS 15 2-in-1. What makes this laptop a perfect gaming machine is its ultra-portable design and the fact that it packs either i5 or i7 Intel Core and a Radeon RX Vega M GL graphic card. Combine that with a beautiful chassis design and you get the gaming laptop of your dreams. The only downside of this laptop is the fact that you’ll have to endure some fan noise while gaming. Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 is also quite affordable, which is another reason why you should consider getting it.

All of these 6 laptops are guaranteed to suit all of your gaming needs. Think about how much you care about the design and portability of your new laptop. Once you figure that out, picking one of the laptops we talked about earlier should be a real piece of cake.
