Choosing the Right Gaming Laptop

When trying to decide on the best gaming laptop for yourself, we know there are many choices to make. What size laptop do you want? What processor? What graphics card? So many options, how do you know which one is best? Well, don’t worry. There’s something for everyone, from beginner to advanced, so let’s take a moment and look at some of the things to take into consideration.

First things first: size. This is a pretty simple choice. Gaming laptops typically vary from 13 inches to 17 inches, but there are niche productions that have been upwards of 23 inches. Luckily, this first decision is fairly easy. What’s the best size to suit your needs?

The next thing to think about is the processor. Whether it’s AMD or Intel, you’ll be getting a  top-of-the-line processor for high-end gaming. Both brands have proven to be the best for gaming, delivering the same speeds across the board. Intel recently released their new 10th Gen processors, which offer some of the fastest processors for gaming. AMD offers the relatively same quality but with a smaller price tag. Bottom line, you can’t go wrong either way.

Once you’ve decided on a processor, it’s time to take a look at a graphics card. Anything from the NVIDIA GeForce GTX® 1050 to the AMD Radeon™ RX 5700, you can find a graphics card for any needs. When considering what to go with, think of it this way: the better the graphics card, the better the games will play. You’ll get smoother video performance and less lag time, which is vital when you’re in the middle of a game.

Storage is also going to play a very important role when you’re looking to use your laptops for gaming. Storage falls under two categories: hard drives (HD) and solid-state drives (SSD). The one you’ll see most often is hard drives, and this is because hard drives are more cost-efficient and offer a longer lifespan. However, solid-state drives feature higher data transfer speeds, meaning your computer not only runs and downloads faster, but it also delivers better game performance.

At the end of it all, we all know the most important factor will be the cost. And at Electronic Express, we offer a variety of setups ranging from $750 to $1700. So no matter what your budget is, you can find exactly what you want and need.
