[October 2018] Top 3 Best Gaming Laptop Deals (Price/Performance)
Another month is here which means that it’s time to take a look at our Top 100 Best Gaming Laptop Deals (Price/Performance) rankings. Here we would mainly like to quickly discuss the top 3 notebooks.
#3 First, we will take a look at the third place first. Our bronze medalist is the Dell Inspiron 15 7577. This bad boy costs $864.99 and for this amount you get an Intel Core i5-7300HQ processor combined with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q (6GB GDDR5) graphics card. Additionally, the machine sports 8GB of DDR4 RAM which is enough for the not so demanding titles.
Moving on to the display section, the manufacturer has included a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display for which we have custom profiles that enhance image quality. Additionally, the notebook is offered with a 256GB SSD storage option which is nice but you might want to think about adding an HDD so that you can store larger files there. We are happy to find a USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support here.
#2 Let’s take move up to the second position. Our silver medalist is Gigabyte AERO 15. This is a 15.6-incher with a Full HD IPS display panel which promises contrasty colors and comfortable viewing angles. Additionally, the AERO 15 employs an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor which is combined with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB GDDR5) graphics card.
When it comes to the memory department, we are met with 32GB of DDR4 RAM which is more than welcome as games become more and more demanding every year. Furthermore, the storage option here is a speedy 512GB SSD which promises fast loading of heavy applications. You may also wish to know that the bad boy in question also sports a USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support. As for the price, the tag says $789.33.
#1 And it’s time to take a look at the first place. Actually, we take the laptops from our 1st and 2nd position as a winner, as they are part of the same series with a very small difference in the storage department. And so, our gold medalist is another configuration of the MSI GP63 Leopard 8R. Under its hood, it sports a pretty commendable combo of an Intel Core i7-8750H CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB GDDR5) graphics card.
Additionally, smooth multitasking is ensured by 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Of course, one can always desire more from a gaming laptop in this respect but considering the price, we can’t have any complaints. The specs sheet continues with a storage configuration of a 500GB SSD + 1000GB HDD or 2000GB SSD + 1000GB HDD! Screen-wise, we are looking at a 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080), TN panel. All this becomes even more beckoning when we look at the price – $789.33!
