When looking for the absolute best gaming laptops to buy, you should be considering a wide range of aspects that come together to provide the best gaming experience. The most important of all as most of you will know is
the GPU or the graphics card. Gaming laptops come with dedicated graphics cards that perform exponentially better when it comes to delivering higher frame rates at maximum detail settings at high resolution. We recommend you get a gaming laptop with Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 series graphics card for the best gaming experience. On the AMD side, you should be looking at the AMD Radeon RX 7000M or the Radeon RX 6000M series graphics card-based laptops. Besides the GPU, the next important aspect to look at is the CPU or the processor in the laptop. You should look at an Intel 12th or 13th Gen H series processor, the choice of Core i5/i7/i9 would depend on the budget that you have for your laptop. On the AMD side, look for AMD Ryzen 7000/6000 lineup processors from the H series, just like in the case of Intel, whether you choose a Ryzen 5 or 7, or 9, would depend on the price range that you have in mind. The next aspect from a performance point of view is the amount of RAM, make sure you pick a laptop with a minimum 16GB of RAM and if possible look for a 32GB RAM variant for a future-proof purchase. You can also always upgrade the RAM from 16GB to 32GB later sometime since most gaming laptops allow you to upgrade RAM and storage. The next aspect is the display, we recommend choosing a laptop with at least 144hz refresh rate, so you can make the most of all the hardware and get 100+ FPS for a smooth and competitive gaming experience. We also recommend stretching your budget and getting a gaming laptop with at least a 1440p display ( 2560x1440 resolution), it is the sweet spot in terms of balancing sharpness and visual quality with performance in terms of frame rate. Our list below recommends the best high-performance gaming laptops that are in the higher-end price segment, we have also recommended gaming laptops that might not be necessarily at the absolute top end of the price bracket but they deliver great bang for the buck in the premium gaming laptop space.
