If choosing a gaming PC is difficult, choosing a gaming laptop is even more difficult. The components are more or less the same, but in laptops, we must also consider other factors that we normally do not evaluate when buying desktop counterparts.
In this guide, we will try to explain how to choose a gaming laptop, how to evaluate its characteristics based on your needs and wallets. We know that buying a notebook to play is a serious and time-consuming thing,

Everything You Need to Know About Hp Gaming Laptops
Are You Sure You Need a Notebook and Not a Gaming Pc?
Buying a laptop should not and cannot be considered as an alternative solution to a desktop computer. The desktop PC is and will always be a cheaper and more efficient solution than the notebook.
It makes sense to buy a gaming laptop when we are brought to travel often for work or study and therefore we are in a place that is not our usual gaming location. It makes sense if we spend a lot of time away from home and where we go we cannot bring a fixed PC.
Or money is not a problem and at that point, we can also take a gaming laptop just to go on vacation in the summer but that’s another matter.
How Portable Should Your Laptop Be?
As portable as gaming laptops are, portability is certainly not their forte. Usually, the versions designed for us players are large, heavy and with low battery life.
Do not think of playing hours and hours by plane or bus because in a few hours the notebook will be discharged regardless of the price you paid for it, rather they are more powerful and the sooner they are discharged.
One of the biggest shortcomings of laptops for playing is that they weigh a lot, some models weigh more than 5 kg. There are lighter models that are around 2 kg but are usually also less performing. If you have thought about taking your notebook to work or university every day, you will also have to consider the weight during your choice.
Another thing to take into consideration is the size of the laptop. Everyone likes to play with a big screen but this means having a bigger and heavier laptop. Usually, the size of the gaming notebooks is between 13 ″ and 18 ″.
An 18 ″ laptop can reach almost 50cm in width and 35cm in length and transporting it undoubtedly becomes problematic. A 14 ″ or 15 ″ laptops will be around 35/39 cm wide and 23 / 27cm long, much less bulky although probably larger than standard notebooks.
What You Will Use the Laptop For?
Understanding your needs is essential before making an important purchase such as buying a laptop. If you will only use it to play, then a good video card will be the priority, but if you will also use it to work, you will also need a good processor and maybe a decent battery life if you intend to use it on transport or in work areas without electricity. Think carefully.
Gaming Laptop: What Features Do We Need?
What differentiates any laptop from a gaming laptop in addition to the Camaro design are the components. In order to run our favourite games on the laptop we will need a video schedule that knows how to play games with a good framerate.
A processor that does not act as a bottleneck to the video card, an SSD hard disk that allows us to load the games quickly and do not slow down the loads in the game, a screen that reproduces good image quality without ghosting or screen tearing effects and possibly a keyboard that does not give us the impression of typing on a silicone cake pan.
Let’s see the components in detail:
Graphics and Video Card
The video card market in gaming laptops is dominated by Nvidia. To date, there are few models that use AMD and as you will see in our selection among the top of the range models there are none.
The best video cards for gaming laptops at the moment are the Nvidia RTX-20 series, these are those used in the higher-end models and which in addition to the excellent performance in the game allow you to take advantage of Ray Tracing technology.
There are excellent models that mount the Nvidia 16 series, the previous series compared to the RTX-20s, these can be found at advantageous prices and are able to run almost all games with good detail and good performance. Obviously, in addition to the series, it also depends on the video card model.
The heart of gaming laptops is obviously the processor. As with Fixed PCs, also in notebooks every year we see new processors that offer faster frequencies and a greater number of cores. A more modern processor at the same price range guarantees better performance and greater portability in your gaming laptop.
The software that records the game sessions requires a fair amount of processing power, especially if you are trying to stream on Twitch * or other channels. This means that a powerful CPU is essential if you want to maintain good game performance and at the same time prepare videos for recording or share streaming sessions.
In gaming laptops the most used processors are Intel. To have a decent gaming machine it is better to take i5 processors of the eighth generation or more recent. The older models are definitely less performing and less and less suitable for upcoming games.
Obviously the i7 and i9 are better than the i5 but if you don’t have to stream or record video in the game it is not a priority to have the processor with multiple cores.
Video games can require a lot of RAM, nowadays it is not recommended to buy a notebook or PC with less than 8 GB of RAM, this is the minimum to have a fluid laptop both in gaming and in classic operations such as surfing with multiple open tables.
Ideal for a gaming laptop is 16 GB. Normally in the “cheap” models, there is only 8GB of RAM, while in the mid-range ones 16 or 32 G. In case your model was equipped with 8 GB do not despair, you can always increase the RAM of your laptop by buying it online and installing it without major problems on your system.
HDD or SSD or SSHD Storage?
Nowadays SSD memories are the standard in gaming and not. It won’t be long before the old HDDs are completely put aside. An SSD guarantees much better performance than an HD and for this reason, we strongly recommend taking a portable gaming computer with an SSD installed, at least to run the system and possibly your favourite game.
Sometimes we find solutions with dual storage devices on the market, a small 128 GB or 256 GB SSD where we will run our operating system and the most important programs and a 500 GB or 1 TB hard disk where we will store most of the files.
The hard disk or SSD can be replaced and therefore it is always possible to upgrade to a larger or more performing model. In addition to the now-classic HD and SSD you will find some system that mounts NVMe SSD.
NVMe is not a different storage system, it is an SSD memory communication interface. This interface was created to go beyond the limits of the SSD, which are not determined by the disk itself but rather by its connection via the SATA interface to the motherboard, which acts as a bottleneck and reduces the performance of the SSD.
The time savings achieved using an NVMe interface memory compared to the classic SATA SSD when loading games translates into a handful of seconds, so I wouldn’t bother with my head for one. Some models use hybrid drives called SSHDs, they are somewhere in between SSDs and HDDs, these are faster than HDDs but less than SSDs.
In video games, the graphic aspect is fundamental, as we have seen previously the most important component is the video card, but a good video card must be accompanied by a good monitor both for the quality of the images and for the performance. In fact, a bad monitor can throttle the game’s FPS with a refresh rate not adequate for the performance of our gaming notebook.
Type of Panel Ips vs Tn
In the world of PC gaming, there is often talk about what is better, the IPS or TN panels? In gaming laptops you will hardly find TN screens, the vast majority are IPS, but what changes?
The IPS panels offer better, more vivid colours and wider viewing angles but at the same time suffer from backlight bleeding that is when the black or very dark areas on the screen fail to be really black and we see a light that ruins the effect scenic.
In addition, IPS panels have slower response times and sometimes in faster games they create ghosting effects, i.e. game scenes in which we see objects moving with a trail behind them due to the slowness of the monitor.
The TN panels instead offer lower response times and therefore cancel the ghosting effect, but the colours are more washed out and the viewing angle is reduced, they are usually preferred by competitive players who prefer better performance than the image quality.
The minimum preferable resolution for any gaming laptop is 1920 x 1080, a laptop with a monitor that offers a lower resolution than Full HD is however a renunciation of the quality of gaming in general. Although minor resolutions require more system effort and often result in better game performance
Laptops with 4K panels (3840 x 2160) are increasingly popular, due to the greater detail of the images. Systems with these resolutions are usually very expensive because they require a rather powerful graphics card and processor in order to offer an adequate framerate.
The ideal refresh rate for gaming is 120/140 HZ (or higher), laptops with screens that offer 60Hz refresh rate are the norm, but if you are a competitive 144Hz player they offer a smoother gaming experience.
G-Sync and Free Sync
The g-syn and the FreeSync are technologies that are used to synchronize the speed of updating the monitor with the number of images sent by the video card. Without these technologies, you risk suffering from the screen tearing effect and having graphic artefacts during the game (incomplete images).
If the notebook has a refresh rate of 60HZ these technologies are not fundamental, but if we start having systems that reach 120HZ or higher, then having one of these two technologies can be important.
Glossy or Matte Screen?
The choice between a glossy or matte screen is very tied to personal taste, both solutions have their pros and cons. Glossy screens offer brighter and more vivid colours but if you use your PC in areas with direct light on the screen you may have annoying reflections. Opaque screens, on the other hand, perform well in areas with bad lighting, blocking reflections but at the same time the colours are less vivid.
No thanks … The touch screen simply serves no purpose if you want a laptop to play, drain the battery sooner, increase the risk of malfunction and increase the cost of the system, there is no logical reason for a gamer to spend more on a computer with a touch screen.
The downside to gaming laptops is that the battery doesn’t last long. The larger the notebook has, the more energy it consumes and the less the battery lasts, especially in gaming.
Despite the fact that you always try to create video cards that consume less, at the same time you try to create more powerful video cards. Laptops for gaming are still medium or high-performance systems that tend to consume a lot. The duration between 3 and 6 hours is normal.
