The Best Gaming Laptops For Your Money?

By that, I mean the laptops that offer the best gaming performance at a given price.

Why would you want that? Because if you’re about to buy a gaming laptop, might as well get the one that offers the best performance possible for your budget, right?

If you have the time to do research… but who does?

Many of us don’t have the time to read or the knowledge to understand detailed laptop reviews and specifications and just want the answers.

In other words, what you want to know is:
What’s the best gaming laptop for my budget?

So if you don’t have the time, don’t worry. We’re here to help you with this article.

The features that we evaluate in order to make our recommendations:

1. Price
2. Performance: CPU, RAM, Storage, Video Card and Wireless Adapter
3. Screen: Size, Resolution, Matte or Glossy, Panel type (TN, IPS, etc.), Brightness, Contrast, Viewing Angles and Color Accuracy
4. Portability: Dimensions, Weight, Real-life battery life during average web browsing?
5. Usability: Keyboard: Layout, Key size, Travel/Pressure, Key Shape and any additional Function keys. Touch pad quality, trackpoint, backlit keyboard, numpad, Operating System, which ports are offered, Webcam resolution, sound quality, optical Drive, noise levels.
6. Reliability: How solid is the chassis? Are the temperatures under load reasonable? How solid are the screen hinges? Is the keyboard spill-resistant? Overall manufacturer long-term reliability? How easy is it to service the laptop?
7. Warranty: Warranty length? What does the warranty cover?

We then recommend laptops that score the best overall, at various price points.

Alternatives recommendations:

We also suggest alternative recommendations, with clear explanations as to why they are interesting alternatives. That way, you can easily choose the best laptop to answer YOUR needs and desires.

Put all of this together and you get this article: The 9 Best Gaming Laptops Under $1000!

Best Gaming Laptop for less than $500

Lenovo ThinkPad E555 20DH002TUS

4GB RAM model: $496.99 at B&H (International Shipping)
8GB RAM model: $524.95 at Amazon

About the Lenovo ThinkPad E555 20DH002TUS:

Equipped with the AMD Radeon R7 M260DX, which takes advantage of AMD’s dual graphic technology, combining the processing power of the integrated video card and the dedicated video card to increase video game performance.

Most 2013/2014 games should be playable at the native 1366 x 768 resolution with medium or high details. More demanding games may require you to lower the settings to low or even minimum.

Pros:

  1. Lowest cost for a gaming laptop with decent gaming performance
  2. Fairly powerful CPU for a laptop that costs less than $500: AMD A10-7300 Quad-Core 1.9-3.2GHz
  3. Fairly portable for a gaming laptop: 10.1 x 13.3 x 1.1″ and 5.18lbs.
  4. Matte (non-reflective) screen
  5. Good battery life for a gaming laptop: 4-6 hours of web browsing
  6. 500GB hard drive
  7. Excellent Lenovo Thinkpad keyboard
  8. Numpad
  9. Runs cool, so you can use it on your lap without getting uncomfortable.
  10. Optical Drive
  11. Bluetooth 4.0
  12. HDMI and VGA Outputs
  13. RAM can be upgraded all the way to 16GB (2x8GB)
  14. Windows 7 Pro
  15. Good build quality

Cons:

  1. 4GB of RAM can be low if you start multi-tasking or running heavier programs. Consider the 8GB model.
  2. Slow 5400rpm hard drive
  3. Screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution and a TN panel: Poor contrast, not accurate color reproduction and poor viewing angles. Expected at this price point. That said, the lower resolution allows games to run smoothly.

Best Gaming Laptop for $550

Lenovo Y40-70 (59423042)

$549.99 (Newegg)

About the Lenovo Y40-70 (59423042):

Equipped with the Radeon R9 M275 2GB video card, an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 8GB SSD cache, great speakers, great battery life; the Lenovo Y40-70 (59423042) is pretty much a steal for 549.99$.

Most games should be playable at the native 1920×1080 resolution with medium or high details. More demanding games may require you to lower the settings.

Pros:

  1. Lowest cost for a gaming laptop equipped with a good dedicated video card.
  2. Fairly powerful CPU for a $550 laptop: Intel Core i5 4210U (Haswell) 1.7-2.7GHz Dual-Core + Hyper-Threading
  3. Highly portable for a gaming laptop: 13.7″ x 9.8″ x 0.9″ and 4.9lbs.
  4. Matte (non-reflective) screen
  5. Great battery life for a gaming laptop: 5-8 hours of web browsing
  6. Excellent JBL speakers that sound good and are fairly powerful.
  7. 500GB hard drive
  8. 8GB of RAM: You can multitask, run a few applications at the same time, or have a lot of web browser tabs open at the same time without slowdowns.
  9. Runs cool, so you can use it on your lap without getting uncomfortable.
  10. Intel 3160 802.11b/g/n/ac 2.4/5GHz Dual-Band WiFi adapter: Reliable
  11. Bluetooth 4.0
  12. Screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution
  13. 8GB SSD that’s automatically used as a cache to reduce the waiting time for the OS to load, instant resume from sleep.
  14. Nice looks: Lots of angle, red highlight on the side of the keyboard keys, carbon fiber weave texture on top of the screen

Cons:

  1. No optical drive: Get an external USB optical drive if you want one. I recommend some further down in the article.
  2. Slow 5400rpm hard drive
  3. Touchpad is average
  4. No numpad
  5. Don’t be fooled: The keyboard isn’t backlit.
  6. No VGA output
  7. It’s a refurbished laptop: Shorter 3 months warranty. That said, the vast majority of issues with computers happen within the first 3 months, so this is enough to cover most possible issues.

Alternative with a more powerful CPU, touchscreen, stand mode and backlit keyboard, available with International Shipping:

The Lenovo Edge 15 – $549.99 at B&H (International Shipping) is an alternative that offers a higher performance CPU, the Intel Core i7-4510U (2.0-3.1GHz Dual-Core + HT), a 1920 x 1080 touchscreen that can be flipped around to use the laptop in a stand mode and a backlit keyboard. It’s also available from B&H, who offer international shipping.

You also get a larger 1TB hard drive and a numpad. On the downside, the video card, a Nvidia Geforce GT 840M, isn’t as powerful as the Radeon R9 275M found in the main recommendation. It offers roughly 65% of its performance, so if gaming performance is all that matters to you, get the Lenovo Y40-70 (59423042). If you value a touchscreen, the stand mode, a more powerful CPU and a backlit keyboard, the Lenovo Edge 15 is an interesting alternative.

#1 alternative: Same laptop with a SSD and an IPS display

The ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS74 $1266.99 at Amazon or $1299.00 at B&H (International Shipping) is pretty much the same laptop recommended above, but with upgrades: A 128GB SSD and an IPS screen, for greater viewing angles and more accurate colors.

#2 alternative: Larger 17.3″ display, LED multiple color SteelSeries backlit keyboard, VGA output

Offering the same CPU and video card as the main recommendation, the MSI GE Series GE70 Apache Pro-681 ($1029.00 at Amazon or $999.00 at BH (International Shipping)) offers similar performance as the ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71.

What differentiate it from the ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 is a larger screen (17.3″ vs 15.6″) and a LED multiple color SteelSeries backlit keyboard. You get 12GB of RAM instead of 16GB, but that won’t affect gaming performance. You also get a VGA port, if that’s important to you.

Upgrade your Laptop:

Upgrade your RAM:

RAM can easily be upgraded on most laptops. Do note that some laptops cannot be upgraded at all, due to their unique design. I provide that info for main recommendations, for alternatives, you can find that info on the product information page, usually under specifications. Otherwise, a quick google search on the manufacturer’s website should provide that info. Feel free to ask me in the comment section if you aren’t sure and can’t find the info.

Pick one of the following recommendations below, depending on if your laptop comes with a single stick of RAM or two, or if you can have up to 4 sticks.

My recommendations should be compatible with all the laptops recommended in this guide, all those that can be upgraded that is.

I recommend the most reliable sticks that I can find and that are available internationally.

Add a single 4GB stick: Crucial 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 SODIMM:

$29.99 (Amazon)
$29.99 (B&H – International Shipping)

Add a single 8GB stick: Crucial 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SODIMM

$46.93 (Amazon)
$46.93 (B&H – International Shipping)

2x4GB (8GB) kit: Crucial 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 SODIMM

2x8GB (16GB) kit: Crucial 16GB (2x8GB) 1600MHz DDR3 SODIMM

$93.86 (Amazon)

Upgrade your hard drive:

You can upgrade your hard drive to a faster and/or a larger hard drive. See our article on The Best Hard Drives (HDD) For Your Money and scroll down to the best 2.5″ hard drives for my recommendations.

Do note that most laptops accept hard drives with a 9.5mm height. Some laptops, can only accept drives with a 7mm height, but those are the exception rather than the norm. Do also note that some laptops cannot be upgraded at all, due to their unique design.

Upgrade to a SSD

SSD wise, I recommend 7mm thick SSDs, so they should fit in pretty much any laptop with a standard hard drive.

A SSD (Solid State Drive) is far faster than a hard drive (See our SSD FAQ) and it also consumes less power than a hard drive, so replacing a hard drive by a SSD will slightly boost your laptop’s battery life.

If you want to upgrade your hard drive to a SSD, I recommend that you read our ‘The Best SSDs (Solid State Drives) For Your Money‘ article.

I also recommend getting this Kingwin SATA to USB 3.0 adapter: $15.99 at B&H (International Shipping), to help you transfer the content of your hard drive to the SSD, in order to minimize downtime and make your life easier. It’s compatible with pretty much all 2.5″ SATA drives.

Keep your old hard drive for external storage via an USB 3.0 enclosure:

When you replace the hard drive that your laptop came with, I recommend putting it in the Sabrent USB 3.0 2.5″ SATA Hard Drive Enclosure:
$14.99 (Amazon)
$13.40 (B&H – International Shipping)

That way you can use your hard drive for external portable storage, such as backups.

This particular enclosure comes with a retractable cable that is connected to the enclosure, so you don’t lose/forget it and it makes the whole package more compact too. It comes with an extension cord if you need it.

USB DVD and Blu-Ray Drives

If your laptop doesn’t come with an optical drive and you want one, here are my recommendations for external USB optical drives.

USB DVD Burner

There are many models of USB DVD Burners. The LG GP60NB50 8x is the one with the best customer reviews:
$27.99 (Amazon)
$26.95 (B&H – International Shipping)

USB Blu-Ray Burner

I recommend two USB Blu-Ray burner. Make sure to plug them in an USB 3.0 port to get the maximum speed possible.

In order of price and burning speed:
Pioneer BDR-XD055 6x – $79.99 (B&H – International Shipping)

LG BE14NU40 14x:
$114.99 (Amazon)
$114.99 (B&H – International Shipping)

    Hey nice article! What about the lenovo y40-80 80fa001cus?
    8gb ram
    14 inch screen
    5th generation i7
    Amd r9 m275
    500 gb hdd + 8gb ssd
    For $700 at lenovo
    Should i buy it?

    • https://www.facebook.com/Mathieu.HR MathieuB

      Too expensive. You can get roughly the same thing, but with a Core i5 CPU (same number of cores, both have hyper-threading, Core i7 simple has higher frequencies) for $550 at Newegg.

      The main recommendation and alternatives for $750-760 have more powerful video cards, a 128GB SSD or a quad-core Intel Core i7 CPUs. Much better options.

      • Emilio Quiteño

        Wow thanks a lot!! I really didn’t think you were going to answer ^_^

  • Douglas Stern

    MSI also has a couple of nice gaming laptops in the $700 – $1000 range on Newegg. Always depends on the sales, what they have in stock, and so on, of course.

  • Charles Chang

    Do you have any recommendations for around 650$~700$?
