What Is A Gaming Laptop?

A gaming laptop, unlike a Chromebook or ultrabook, is a laptop that’s made for one thing and one thing only: serious power in a portable package. Gaming laptops are the perfect solution for anyone who needs to get a few rounds of their favorite games in between meetings on a business trip, during long flights, or just while you’re out grabbing a cup of joe at the local Starbucks. They make gaming accessible anywhere, while also providing enough power to watch your favorite movies or a get a little work done on the side at the same time.

What Price Should You Expect To Pay For A Gaming Laptop?

If there’s one thing you don’t want to skimp on when it comes to gaming laptops, it’s price. Most reputable gaming laptops worth the investment will run you anywhere from $1,000 – $3,500, though we should note you’d probably get a lot of utlity out of a model that strikes right in the middle of that range, around $2,000. The higher cost of these devices can be attributed to high end processors or graphics card, as well as the quality of the included screen, trackpad, and keyboard as well.
