Top 10 Best Gaming Laptops in 2021

Today I’m going to reveal the top 10 best gaming laptops I would actually suggest that you get in 2021.

So if you want a laptop with:

  • Ample storage
  • A high performing CPU & GPU
  • Size and quality display
  • An appropriate RAM and VRAM
  • And at a really good and affordable price

Then you’ll love this guide.

Let’s get started.

CPU vs GPU?

When choosing a laptop to buy for the purpose of gaming, one has to consider a couple of things… As we know it now, most PC games are highly GPU-dependent, thus the need to consider the GPU of a laptop before buying.

While GPU seems like the #1 thing to consider when buying a gaming laptop, you also need to be on the lookout for a laptop with a good CPU, a good-enough RAM, and lots of storage space.

A laptop without a high Core i7 CPU or even Core i9 can still perform well with a Core i5 CPU, as long as it runs on a quality GPU.

What About its RAM Size???

When choosing the best laptop to buy for gaming in 2021, it’s best to go for one with a RAM capacity of at least 16GB for better performance.

Did We Miss Resolution?

No, we did not!

There’s a lot that goes into choosing the best laptop to use for your gaming. With the gaming industry becoming one of the biggest industries, there’s a need for one to improve on his or her gaming gears in order to cope.

When it comes down to gaming resolution, any display that’s less than 1920 x 1080 should in no way be considered “a good gaming laptop”.

A game like Grand Theft Auto V for example and even Hitman 2 run as high as 4k resolution, which shows that, in order to enjoy such kinds of games, you have to take the resolution and display of your laptop really serious.

There has been a major challenge on gaming laptops like Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Razer, etc, with the sudden rise in the E-sports games across the globe. Thus, these laptops were forced to scale-up their production efficiency so as to allow gamers the freedom to play games in the best-possible high resolutions and displays, at constant frames per second – not only for recreational reasons but also for professional purposes.

These popular brands now offer better laptop solutions for gamers; from their desktop equivalents to the very sleek powerhouses that offer gamers a longer battery life, and everything in between.
