SOME PERSONAL TIPS!

Top Best Gaming Laptops Under 1000 Dollars

PROCESSOR

For a good gaming laptop, it is important that it has a good fast processor capable of running all high-end games at maximum framerates. Though the laptops in the list have Core i7 processors which are considered really good for gaming, I would recommend you to go with the latest gen processor only (i.e 7th gen) as the 7th gen processors perform better than the 6th gen processors.

RAM

A good amount of RAM is necessary in order to play high-end games at full or good framerates without any lag. Although 8GB of RAM is considered quite good for gaming but if you are spending 1000 bucks, I would recommend you to go for a laptop which has at least 16 GB of RAM. DDR4 RAMS are better than the DDR3 RAMS so if possible go for a laptop which has more than 8 GB of DDR4 RAM.

STORAGE

Gaming wise whether the laptop has an HDD or an SSD, it won’t matter much but make sure that if you are going with a laptop that has an SSD, you have enough storage so that you can install all your games without any kind of compromise. A combination of both HDD & SSD would be great as well. The benefit of SSD is that it has much faster read and write speeds and it makes the boot time really less if we compare it with an HDD.

GRAPHICS

All the laptops mentioned below have either the NVIDIA GTX 960M Graphics card or NVIDIA GTX 1050 Graphics card. They both are really good for gaming. NVIDIA 1050 is the latest one and the faster one. So even though 960M has greater memory, I would recommend you to go with a laptop which has NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics card.

BATTERY

If you are going for a gaming laptop then you should never expect it to have a great battery life. This is because, for gaming, a gaming laptop requires a lot of power in order to run games smoothly.

CONCLUSION from “Best gaming laptops under 1000 dollars”

For me, the best gaming laptop in the list under 1000 dollars is the “Acer Aspire VX 15” i.e the first laptop in the list. It has almost all the features that you would need for a good gaming laptop. The only downside in the laptop is that it has got only 256 GB of SSD but it is upgradable.

You might be wondering that why I didn’t choose the 6th laptop as the best laptop. Let me tell you that the processor on that laptop is a bit older i.e 6th gen and with “CUK ASUS GL553 ROG Gamer Laptop” you are getting Core i7 (7th Gen) processor. Also having an SSD for gaming doesn’t have much of an effect so that is the reason I chose the 5th laptop in the list as the best laptop.
