Gaming has moved past being a hobby or leisure pursuit to pass the time, and is now a way of living for some people. The most dedicated gamers can earn a fortune through their laptops, but before getting to that point they have to invest in the right one.
Let’s take a look at some of the more popular options for high-end gaming laptops for gamers who live and breathe gaming every day.
Razer Blade 17
Razer has made its name in the industry with their ultimate slim design that doesn’t compromise on heavy gaming power. In fact, its latest model boasts a 12th-gen Intel Core up to i9-12800HK CPU and a GPU up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (16GB DDR6 VRAM).
Razer Blade’s ability to carry all that inside a 0.8 inches thick chassis with only one charging brick is the reason for its price. The Razer Blade 17 starts at $2,699 for an entry-level model, and can go as high as $4,299 for the top-tier option. Even the entry-level model comes with a QHD 240Hz screen and a customizable per-key RGB keyboard.
Omen X 2S
The arena’s first dual-display screen gaming computer, the Omen X 2S was highlighted in our previous article as part of HP’s latest line of gaming laptops that come complete with integrated malware protection.
The built-in HP Sure Sense technology uses deep knowledge of synthetic intelligence (AI) to protect its users from ultra-modern developing cyber threats. This allows users to game with ease, while enjoying the innovative liquid metal compound cooled CPU that keeps the thermal dissipation below check at all times.
The AERO 16 combines all of the top features of the best gaming laptops with a 12th generation Intel Core i9 processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs, and a remarkable 4K+ HDR ultra-wide view in one compact chassis. This provides users with the ultimate gaming experience.
The result is a 35% performance increase compared to previous generations, reaching the highest clock rate of 5.0GHz. Gigabyte’s unique cooling technology includes two 59-blade fans, 5 heat pipes, and multi-face heat dissipation fins that ensure a calm and stable throttle-free performance under heavy gaming or multimedia processing.
You can get all of this for only $4,299 and make a start on your creative journey right away.
Dell Alienware Area 51M
The extraordinary Alienware Area-51M offers stellar overclocking performance with an Intel 9th-Gen i7 8-core processor and a full 64 GB of memory. When paired with its NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics card, this makes for a laptop with plenty of gaming power.
Its Cryo-Tech 2.0 cooling solution supports the additional computing power, and Alienware devotees can appreciate its cost at $2,549. This is pricy, but with Alienware’s nearly 20-year history of building top of the line gaming laptops, you know that the quality is always going to be there.
ASUS ROG Mothership
128GB of RAM, three 2TB Samsung SSDs, and an Intel 9th generation Core i9-9980HK processor (8C/16T) with a base clock of 2.4 GHz and turbo at 5.0 GHz — the ASUS ROG Mothership is a clear powerhouse among laptops. Paired with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, the Mothership’s graphics and performance confidently beat its notebook competition.
Weighing 4.8 kg, the 17.3-inch display is an IPS panel with Ultra HD 3840×2160 resolution and a 60 Hz refresh rate. Retailing at $9,998, its stunning set-up — the detachable keyboard, generous selection of ports, 4×4 Watt speakers, full HD 1080p webcam — doesn’t lag behind either.
None of these laptops can be classified as cheap. Other notebooks are potential options but to the hardcore gamer, the aforementioned high power gaming laptops are necessary investments. The price delivers a quality gaming experience like no other, and those who have already got to sample them know that the investment is definitely worth it.
