Our recommendation:

1, Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-55WL Gaming Laptop (The Most Recommended)

Acer Nitro 5 AN515-51-55WL Gaming Laptop

The most recommended on our list is Nitro 5 from Acer which comes packed great potential both in terms of performance and portability. It is priced around $750.

The CPU is an i5-7300HQ with 4-cores/4-threads which is optimal for gaming and productivity without being too expensive. It comes with 8GB of RAM and for storage you get a 256GB SSD. This hardware combination is pretty decent for almost all your productivity and entertainment needs and can even handle light-weight content creation and design workloads.

It has an i5-7300HQ which is a 4-cores/4-threads processor at 2.8GHz (turbo up to 3.5GHz) with 6M of L3 cache and 8GB of DDR4 RAM. The most influential components, however, are the Nvidia GTX 1050Ti and the 256GB M.2 SSD. The GTX 1050 Ti is comparable to a GTX 970M, it can beat GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 965M by around 30%, you can play most games at medium to high even ultra setting at 1080p. (Benchmarks)  This is so close to being the gamer’s ideal laptop that you will cringe when you see that it has a TN panel display.

Which brings us to the display, which is a 15.6 inch panel at a 1920 by 1080 resolution with IPS technology for better viewing angle and decent color reproduction.

The aesthetics are elegant and attractive. The body is hard plastic which is black with red accents for the keyboard and the hinge shroud. The build quality is also quite robust with hard edged design with sleek lines and angles.

2, Dell i5577-5335BLK-PUS Gaming Laptop

Dell i5577-5335BLK-PUS Gaming Laptop

The Dell Inspiron priced under 800$ offers a very decent price to performance ratio. The hardware is modern and mid-to-high end and at the same time is not over-powered for a laptop.

The metal body is black with red accents on it and a Chiclet keyboard which is not too bad for either productivity or gaming.

Speaking of which, the GPU that will be powering your game library is the GTX 1050 from Nvidia with 4GB of VRAM which is more than competent when it comes to gaming at a standard 1080p gaming. The frame rates are going to be maintained easily at 50 to 60 FPS for even the most demanding titles. A 1050Ti is often expected at this price point but Dell decided to make that as a separate upgrade option that you can get if you want to go that extra mile.

Coming to the next most important factor for gaming and productivity alike, the screen is a 15.6 inches 1920 by 1080 resolution display with anti-glare protection so you can use it in daylight and outdoors. The panel is TN so you may get poor color reproduction and poor viewing angles but FPS gamers would want to prefer this one for higher refresh rates and lower latencies. It weighs 5.7 pounds.

The connectivity options include an HDMI port, an Ethernet port, an SD card slot, 3 USB 3.0 ports and an audio input output combo jack.

3, ASUS M580VD-EB54 Gaming Laptop

ASUS M580VD-EB54 Gaming Laptop

Give Asus a chance to compete in this price range and for $800 and you will get a light, powerful and very portable VivoBook for your productivity and gaming uses. It is very stylish and still powerful to get into the competition.

Its internal hardware is very similar to the Dell Insipiron that we saw above. With an i5-7300HQ and 8GB of RAM making it quite a performer in terms of both multitasking and content creation workloads like video editing.

The storage comes in the form of 256GB of SSD making it even more responsive and user-friendly. SSDs reduce the boot time of your operating system and load time for your games. As a matter of fact, an SSD would make your device feel smooth than getting a better processor can.

Speaking of which the 15.6 inch display has a native resolution of 1920 by 1080 and has anti-glare protection. It is an ideal resolution for the screen size and graphics horsepower available.

4, MSI GL62M 7RE-407 15.6” Gaming Laptop

MSI GL62M 7RE-407 15.6” Gaming Laptop

This is a product which we have reviewed before and in quite a bit of depth too, needless to say it catches every gamer’s attention and gets complemented a lot. At $900 this is not surprising but rather something you’d expect. Often laptops even at the mid-to-high range market suffer a lot of design flaws being overly verbose and vibrant. MSI fortunately knows how to design with perfect aesthetics and appeal.

The GPU is an Nvidia GTX 1050Ti with 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM that the best GPU you can find in laptops under 800$. Again, this GPU sits at the sweet spot between performance and affordability and can give you an excellent gaming experience at the standard resolution of 1080p. The frame rates can easily reach 50 to 60 FPS for even the most demanding titles. The Achilles’ heel for any gamer will be this 1920 by 1080 panel which has poor color reproduction and poorer viewing angle. Although the response time is reportedly faster than IPS panel, most would have preferred an IPS panel.

Moving a little lower, you will see a that there is a Cooler Booster button which you can click to get better cooling manually, if you don’t mind the extra noise. This feature from MSI ensures that you don’t lose any of the computational horsepower that the 1050Ti or the 7300HQ has to offer, in the name of thermal throttling.

Ports are abundant for all type of peripheral like 2 USB 3.0, 1 Type-C, 1 USB 2.0, a mini-display port and an HDMI port. Also available are the 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.1 technology, which is fairly obvious to expect.

The keyboard is from steelseries, and although it is not a mechanical keyboard it will get the job done without any complains. At 2.4kg or 5.3 pounds this is a heavy laptop but considering the amount of computational horsepower it packs, this is understandable. It is however, much more portable than a full desktop if you are planning on LAN parties or gaming for a weekend at your friend’s place.

5, MSI GL62M 7RD-1407 Gaming Laptop

MSI GL62M 7RD-1407 Gaming Laptop

Slightly bulkier than the laptops we have seen so far but much more efficient in terms of cooling and ergonomics, this model from MSI is priced at $700 which is about $100 cheaper than most of its competitors.

The internal specs include our now familiar i5-7300HQ with 4-cores/4-threads and 2.5GHz of clock speed with turbo up to 3.5GHz this is processor along with an 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 256GB of high speed SSD storage offers the best performance for the given price range.

It can handle multitasking workloads, productivity workloads like video editing and play CPU dependent games like Minecraft. It comes with a GTX 1050 with 2GB of VRAM to power your gaming experience. For the native resolution this graphics card can render at 50 to 60 FPS medium to high visual settings.

Moving on to the ergonomics and design, we are see the classic red MSI logo on a black chassis which sports a classy dull black texture. The steelseries keyboard is a nice additional touch from MSI to improve its appeal for the gamer audience.

The additional bulk of the laptop is not inefficient either. Sporting 6 heating pipes and cooler booster 4 technology from MSI makes sure that you can use every last ounce of performance from the hardware without any heating issues.

The display itself is a gorgeous panel. The resolution is a standard 1920 by 1080 spanning over a 15.6” screen but the 94% NTSC is what anyone would admire the most. As an additional touch, you also get Nahimic 2 Audio Enhancement feature to get a realistic 3D surround sound feature.

MSI has really out done itself on this one with decent audio and equally well visuals. The steelseries keyboard is the last nail in the coffin. If you take your gaming experience seriously and want to have a convenient laptop for LAN parties and gaming events, MSI will guaranty that you are taken seriously in these events.

It weighs 5.3 pounds and the connectivity options include 3 USB 3.0 ports one of which is Type-C, one USB 2.0 port, 802.11 ac wireless, Ethernet port, an HDMI port and a mini-display port.

6, Dell Inspiron i7559-5012GRY Gaming Laptop

Dell Inspiron i7559-5012GRY Gaming Laptop

For people with productivity in mind more than gaming this Inspiron model is the ideal combination of great display, decent computing horsepower and an affordable price of around 800 dollars..

The CPU is a sixth gen i7-6700HQ with 4-cores/8-threads with 6M of cache and up to 3.50GHz of clock speed, this is a pretty high end CPU for a laptop. It comes with 8GB of RAM and a 1TB of HDD with 8GB of SSD for caching. We strongly recommend switching to a full SSD set up if you want to make the most of this laptop.

The graphics performance is pretty limited with a GTX 960M with 4GB of VRAM. This is only suitable for casual gamers and is not going to be future proof beyond 1-2 years. Still games like Overwatch or CS:GO can make the most of it.

Coming to the center of attraction of this device, its display. Which is a gorgeous 15.6 inch panel with a neat PenTile 3846 by 2160 resolution of touchscreen display. It is designed to be used by content creators and designers as a portable work PC where they can sketch ideas and do last minute edits without any CPU bottleneck. This is where the i7 would truly shine – In editing and rendering your content without any complains. It is PenTile 4K display and not the RGB 4K panel, which is why it is mostly recommended as a portable resort for content creators.

The Windows 10 installation is advertised as “Microsoft Signature Edition” which means it comes without any bloatware and is supposed to reflect Windows at its best. If you are used to doing a clean Windows install anyway, this might not be a big deal but it is nice to know that manufactures have understood that people dislike bundled bloatware.

Design and aesthetics are also on point, with a nice black and grey theme going on for the device weighs 6.1 pounds which is more than its competitors but it also has a 10 hour of average battery backup which adds to the weight of the device.

Peripheral connectivity options include Dual-band Wireless, USB 3.0, Ethernet port and an HDMI port.

7, CYBERPOWERPC Tracer II T15300

CYBERPOWERPC Tracer II T15300

The Tracer II from Cyberpower is an attempt by this brand to get into the mainstream market and they have priced their product quite well for the features and hardware that it packs. It is priced at $815 and offers performance over portability and is targeted toward gamers.

Not many have heard of CyberpowerPC much, but they have been in the computer hardware industry for over 20 years, silently making affordable hardware, let’s look at the Tracer II and see that for ourselves.

The CPU is an i7-7700HQ with 4-cores/8-threads and up to 3.80GHz of clock speed. This is the successor of the 6700HQ we saw previously and offers an incremental improvement in terms of clock-speed. With 8GB of RAM and and 240GB of SSD it meets the standard for a smooth computing experience with no significant bottlenecks anywhere.

The GPU is Nvidia GTX 1050Ti with 4GB of VRAM. It is the most optimum setup for 1080p gaming at 50-60 FPS and high visual settings. Unless you really mess with antialiasing this GPU can offer you some pretty good performance. The display is a standard 15.6 inch panel with maximum resolution of 1920 by 1080 with antiglare coating.

The aesthetics speaks volume. The TRACER II does not shy away from showing off some really good design on its lid and the RGB mechanical keyboard and click pad offers both comfort and the extravagant looks a gamer can desire. The keys are programmable so if you want you can even turn RGB completely off or for that matter, have customized key mapping for better gaming experience.

To offer generous cooling the laptop has two large vents beside the laptop hinges and weighs over 6.1 pounds. This is the highest spec laptop in our list and CyberpowerPC makes sure that none of that performance is throttled because of heating issues.

Powerful CPU also makes it ideal for content creators and the likes who have as demanding workloads as their game libraries. The peripheral connectivity options are plenty starting from 2 USB 3.0 ports, one USB Type C port, an Ethernet port, an HDMI port and 2 USB 2.0 ports. Input and output audio ports are also separated which reduces interference and improves the overall audio experience.

8, ASUS FX550IU-WSFX

ASUS FX550IU-WSFX

Switching gears a little from the tradition Intel and Nvidia combination, this Asus FX laptop comes with a complete AMD solution for both CPU and GPU solutions and is priced at $720.

The CPU is a true FX-9830P quad-core chip clocked at 3.0GHz. This is probably the least powerful CPU in our list and is comparable to an i5-7200U in terms of CPU horsepower. The RAM is 8GB in size and the secondary storage solution includes a 128 GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive, offering a good balance between storage capacity and speed. You can fit your entire steam library in this storage device without having to think twice.

Next the gaming experience is powered by RX460 with 4GB of VRAM which is almost equivalent to an old GTX 965M in terms of gaming performance. 1080p gaming is not going to be an issue on this setup expect maybe for CPU intensive games like Minecraft where rendering distant blocks can easily overwhelm the system.

The display is a standard 1920 by 1080 resolution panel spanning 15.6 inches and is prefect for portable gaming and productivity. The design and aesthetics of this laptop is certainly the most unique thing about it. The black body with subtle red carving along the lid and beside the keyboards (which also have red backlight) shows real creative and professionalism from Asus’ part.

It has some drawbacks in terms of CPU performance but considering the price against its competitors, this is a decent bang for your buck if you want to get a midrange laptop. It is the only device on our list sporting an RX 460 graphics from AMD, if you are sporting a Free-Sync monitor this might just be the thing for you. Asus has really taken it up a notch with the new AMD chips and it proves that the competition is still alive and well between AMD and Nvidia.

Lastly the connectivity options include a VGA port, an HDMI port, an Ethernet port, 2 USB 3.0 port, combo jack for audio, and an SD card slot. The device weighs 5.4 pounds and is only 1.2 inches thick.

9, ASUS ZX53VW-AH58

ASUS ZX53VW-AH58

Finding a good gaming laptop with satisfying performances and not being costly can be quite difficult. The ASUS ZX53VW-AH58 on the other hand, comes with some impressive features at a good price. Providing a smooth gaming at all except the highest settings, with the subtle Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M graphic card and full HD display, makes this system pretty powerful, and not just for gaming. When not playing, it works efficiently as daily works and media tasks performer. It is ranked by its configuration on the same level as the previous top-picks – Dell i7559-763BLK, ASUS K501UX and ASUS K501UW-AB78. As all of these being high-end in this particular category, the ASUS ZX53VW brings fresh perspective in the entry-level gaming, showing performance increase at significant level.

Design and features

With lines inspired by the F-22 stealth fighter, the ASUS ZX53VW kicks with style, with an impressive metallic and slim design, giving a look as seen in Asus’s ROG (Republic of Gamers). The lid is presented with impressive curves alongside the “Asus” label, stretching to the keyboards, giving it astonishing looks. Measuring 0.8 by 15.1 by 10 in. (HWD), and weighing at 5.5 pounds, it’s slimmer, but also heavier than the ASUS FX502VM-AH51(0.9 by 15.4 by 10.5 inch; 4.9 pounds), a laptop considered to be from the same establishment.

Performance

The unit we reviewed comes with the following specs:

  • 6th generation (Skylake) Intel i5-6300HQ (2.3GHz; turbo up to 3.1GHz) processor,
  • 8GB system memory,
  • 512GB SSD and
  • NVidia GeForce GTX 960M discrete graphics (with 4GB)

This spec configuration offers suitability for most work, college and social tasks, and fulfils most of the gaming needs. With a quad-core processor, it will run over any obstacle given, and if you have some speed issues, check somewhere else, it is not the processor. We tested it thoroughly, and it showed that it can remain cool and quiet for hours of usage.

HD video editing, spreadsheet processing and media project are completed in no time, and are done with no stammering or faltering of any type, which comes very handy for students involved in MS office projects who later switch to gaming.

For an entry-gaming laptop, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M (4GB) is not the worst choice, but on the other hand, it hasn’t been the best for the gaming world. Most entry level laptops, including the ASUS K501UW-AB78 use this same graphic card, although others in the same category come with a more powerful GPU. The two mid-range gaming configurations, Editor’s choice ASUS FX502VM, packed with GTX 1060 GPU (3GB) and the more potent ASUS ROG GL502VS-DB71 with the more powerful Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card, are two powerful gaming rigs with more higher price, but if you are looking for affordable gaming laptop, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M can easily please your requirements.

The ASUS ZX53VW was tested while playing GTA-V, and was producing astounding 50 FPS (frames per second) at 1920-1080 resolution, which is more than enough for a memorable gaming experience. Other more demanding titles, such as Cities and Skylines, on heavy load starts stuttering, forcing us to lower the settings down to Medium- Quality (1366-768 resolution).

When compared to competitor’s ASUS FX502VM packed with powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, the gaming performances with ASUS ZX53VW are not dull at all, although the first one offers more FPS than the other. Add the difference between the GTX 960M card and the GTX 1060 based on Pascal, you’ll find that for a hardcore gamer, the GTX 960M card wouldn’t be the best choice, but for a growing gamer it would still be a good option.

For a good and reasonable price, the ASUS ZX53VW-AH58 presents outstanding value, offers good gaming experience and neat performance. During testing it comes close to some more expensive configurations, and in some cases even beats them. The looks, equipped with solid metallic chassis, full HD display, backlist keyboard and fair port options, are sure worth mentioning. In comparison, it does steer clear of competition with the 512GB SSD, dedicated graphic card and backlit keys. Taken all in consideration, it is very easy to offer this money worth gaming laptop to anyone in the market, giving the user an all handle gaming machine.

10, Dell Inspiron i7559-2512BLK

Dell i7559-763BLK

The Inspiron 7559 is a notebook series from Dell, known for its orientation towards gaming. The Dell Inspiron i7559-2512BLK is no exception to the rule, and its price tag, of just 850USD, puts it in the league of affordable laptops for gamers.

The Full HD resolution it is capable of is just the tip of the iceberg. A Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M provides great, dependable video processing power and its CPU is an Intel Core i7-6700HQ of the 6th generation. Its RAM is ensured by 8GB, and its hybrid HDD has a total capacity of 1TB, and 8GB of SSD storage, for increased performance.

This laptop is quite fast, thanks to the quad-core CPU it comes appointed with. You can safely use the Inspiron i7559-2512BLK for playing games and working with video and photo processing software, without a glitch. For students and home office workers, this is an ideal configuration.

One thing that needs to be mentioned is the presence of two slots of RAM on the motherboard. One is occupied by the 8GB the laptop comes with, as its initial configuration. In case you feel like you could use more processing power, you can always add another stick with 8GB RAM to double it.

Some may argue that regarding storage, this unit could have done better. The hybrid drive has a small SSD storage capacity can be used for cache, so overall your computer will run faster. However, do not expect this combination to offer the same superior performance as real SSDs. Plus, you will not be able to choose what the cache will serve for, which means that you will not be able to increase performance by storage memory management.

Expect your laptop to run all the popular modern video games, as its GTX 960M graphics card comes with 4GB GDDR5. Nonetheless, if the video requirements of a certain title are more expensive on your configuration, just lower the detail settings, and the resolution, to get a glitch-free performance.

The FHD display comes with a native resolution of 1920×1080. A nice touch is that you can run multiple software programs at the same time and have them displayed on the screen. The anti-glare feature helps with overall value and performance, and the IPS display capabilities will eliminate any blurring or loss of color when watching the screen from wider angles.

One of the strongest points of this model is its 74 WHr battery. That means that you will get to use this laptop without recharging for up to 10 hours, provided that you only restrict yourself to using the device for low power consuming applications.
