With the growth in the popularity of gaming on PC, there are plenty of options for every gaming fan looking for the best laptop for gaming. To help you figure out which gaming laptops are the best for your needs, we’ve gathered up five top gaming laptops, each of which offers something a bit different in the world of gaming.

Here are the top five gaming laptops for 2019:

1. Acer Predator Triton 700

The Acer Predator Triton 700 is the top gaming laptop on the market. Designed with gamers and PC enthusiasts in mind, this gaming laptop is built for power and cooling, to be sure.

Inside, you’ll find a 17.3-inch full HD IPS display, up to an Intel Core i9-8950HK CPU, and 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM.

Asus ROG Strix SCAR II

Why should you buy this? The performance of the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II with ROG’s custom components will make you wonder why you’re not gaming on this machine already.

Who’s it for? Serious gamers and the MOBA crowds.

How much will it cost? $2000 (but you can pay less)

Why we chosr it: The ROG Strix SCAR II is a gaming laptop built for serious gamers looking for the power to support the latest in high-end graphics. ASUS pairs Intel’s latest 8th Gen Core processor with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 GPU for outstanding graphics performance, while still allowing for a thin and light gaming laptop with the performance of a GTX 1080. It may be a little intimidating to use for new gamers, but ROG’s blue mechanical keys help lower the learning curve.

Lenovo Legion Y520

  • Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 6
  • Dell XPS 15 2-in-1
  • Intel Core i7-8750H Coffee Lake
  • Portable Laptops for Gaming

Gaming laptops are powerful. The latest consoles and many popular games are now expected to push many teraflops and higher. And today’s CPUs are high-end enough to keep most machines running smooth without too much load on the system.

But games also require powerful GPUs and you will need the power to push everything from textures to physics into 4K glory. Gamers typically want a machine that can deliver, or at least be reasonably comfortable for playing, in a regular or small-sized workstation.

That’s why most of the laptops we recommend have high-end desktop parts. You can mix-and-match CPUs, graphics cards and storage if you need to.

Razer Blade 15

Razer Blade 15 at Amazon (Best Buy)

While some folks have enough cash to spend on something larger, or more feature-rich, such as the newer Razer Blade 15X, there are still plenty of smaller, more affordable models out there, too.

If you don’t want to go as large as the 17-inch Razer Blade Stealth, or you just don’t need the bulk of the 15.6-inch Blade Stealth, or you’re on a budget, the Razer Blade 15 is an excellent choice. It’s a bit less powerful than the bigger Blade Stealth, and its 144Hz screen isn’t the best, but if you want a smaller, lighter Razer Blade laptop, this is a great option. The 4.1 pound machine is a bit bulkier, but it offers much better value in the end.

MSI Stealth Thin

MSI is a well known name when it comes to high-end gaming laptops. This company used to be known for designing budget gaming laptops, but now they have their sights set on delivering the best that the gaming market has to offer. In our recently-published list of the best laptops for the PC gaming enthusiasts, you can read about how MSI’s Stealth models managed to take the top spot for their aesthetics, performance, battery life and value. In the coming week, we will take a look at some of the newer gaming laptops from MSI, one of which is the new MSI GS63VR Stealth Pro, which is one of the most recent high-end gaming laptops in the world. The MSI GS63VR Stealth Pro offers up some impressive components, including the company’s own 6th generation Core i7 CPU and a GTX 1070.
