We don’t really get to review gaming laptop as often at online, but with the market heating up so intensely because of the latest innovations in graphics and CPU technologies, it’s only logical that we should write a guide about the best gaming laptops that you can currently get your hands on. With that said, here are the best gaming laptops that we found.

1. MSI GT73VR TITAN Pro:

It wasn’t too long ago that MSI packed up its Indian operations and left for a temporarily period. But it all changed when MSI decided to step up the game in the Indian segment with strong product releases, thus showing its dominance and the MSI Titan Pro 4K GT73VR 7RF is a case in point of their market dominance. This is a seriously beefed up laptop from MSI and is capable of competing with the best of gaming laptops out there. In fact, it is one of the few laptops that MSI advertises as having support for SLI. Here are the specifications:

  • Intel 7th Generation i7 7820HK
  • 32GB DDR4 RAM @ 2400 MHz
  • 1TB HDD @ 7200RPM
  • 2 256GB PCIe SSD
  • NvidiaGeforce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X (SLI version Available)
  • FHD/UHD Display options available depending on the specifications chosen

With specifications like these, the MSI is well capable of running VR and high end gaming without breaking a sweat. The thing that also makes the MSI stand out is that despite the seriously beefed up specifications, is the fact that it has a full metal outer construction and an RGB keyboard. So it performs like it looks and it also gets a plethora of I/O ports. If you have already owned a gaming pc then you nust buy best budget gaming motherboard to unleash your gaming experience.

MSI GT73VR TITAN Pro 4K-479 17.3" 4K Display Extreme Gaming Laptop Core i7-7820HK GTX 1080 16GB 256GB NVMe SSD + 1TB VR Ready
  • Display: 17.3" UHD | 4K eDP IPS-Level 3840x2160 | Operating System: Windows 10 PRO
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-7820HK (2.9-3.9GHz)
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA's GTX 1080 8G GDDR5X
  • RAM: 16GB (8GB x2) DDR4 2400MHz | Hard Drive: 256GB SSD (PCIE Gen3x4) + 1TB (SATA) 7200rpm
  • Special features: VR READY | Super Raid 4 | Backlit LED Steel Series Keyboard | Thunderbolt 3 | Dual Killer Gaming Network E2400 | True Color Technology

2. ASUS ROG Strix Scar GL703GE

If you wanted the most ultimate gaming laptop money can buy, look no further. Props to Asus for actual making this behemoth a reality as it isn’t a subtle looking thing. To start off, it comes with its own carrying briefcase. Secondly, this is perhaps the only laptop in existence that comes with its own separate water cooling compartment which features a quick disconnect mechanism for when you don’t need the extra cooling. Now the reason why the Asus features this is because it does need a lot of cooling to properly cool off the components that lie underneath and it goes something like this:

  • Intel® Core™ i7 8750H
  • 32 GB DDR4 2400MHz
  • 1250 GB flash memory
  • Dual GTX 1080’s in SLI, both overclockable.
  • 4K G-Sync enabled display

If that weren’t impressive enough, then it also comes with its own RGB Mechanical Keyboard which can pair up with Asus AURA sync to control the lighting elements. Now this laptop is one of the few in existence that is actually overclockable beyond its rated speeds. This is primarily the reason why ASUS even pairs it up with the separate liquid cooler because the stock heatsinks, even though beefy, just don’t cut the mustard when it comes to long durations of operations with overclock. Along with a perfect gaming laptop you also check big and tall gaming chair to get a comfortable gaming time.

3. Alienware 17 R4 17.3″ Full HD Gaming Laptop

Alienware is one of the most renowned brands when it comes to gaming peripherals and PC’s. Infact, it is the only brand that existed long before the likes of Asus and MSI existed in the gaming segment and offered gaming laptops. The Dell Alienware 17 has gone through many iterations and is called the ‘17’ because it literally features a 17 inch display. It isn’t a portable laptop per-se owing to the humongous proportions but the huge proportions do make headway for some serious hardware as it can be configured up to:

  • Intel® Core™ i7-7820HK
  • 32GB DDR4 RAM
  • 512GB/1TB M.2 PCIe SSD
  • 1TB HDD
  • GTX 1070/GTX 1080

The 17 can be forgiven for not fairing as well as Asus or MSI in the coolness factor, but it has always been Alienware’s philosophy to keep the aesthetics as underrated as possible, and it is quite evident when you look at the exterior because it only has the Alienware logo to identify itself. The 17, like the others in this segment, is meant to be desktop replacement as battery life like the others isn’t particularly its strong suit.

Alienware 17 R4 17.3" Full HD Gaming Laptop - 7th Gen. Intel Core i7-7820HK Processor up to 3.90 GHz, 32GB Memory, 1TB SSD + 1TB Hard Drive, 8GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070, Windows 10 Pro
  • 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7820HK Processor (8M Cache, up to 3.90 GHz), Windows 10 Pro (64-bit)
  • 32GB DDR4 2400MHz Memory, 1TB Solid State Drive + 1TB 5400 RPM SATA Hard Drive, No Optical Drive
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5, Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0, Mini Display Port 1.2
  • 17.3" FHD 1920 x 1080 IPS Anti-Glare 300-nits Display + IR Presence Detection Camera
  • Killer 1435 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.1, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A, 1 x USB 3.0 Type-C

4. Premium Lenovo Legion Y720

When we think of Lenovo, we always assume serious business laptops like the Thinkpad. It would be true even today have Dell didn’t decide to step up the game with tis gaming laptop brand, aptly named as the “Legion”. Lenovo isn’t particularly a new player in the gaming laptop market and the Y series did exist before. Nevertheless, the Y720 is their most recent offering and can easily be considered as among one of the best value gaming laptops that you can get currently. It doesn’t have a very bulky profile like the others in this list, but that doesn’t mean that it is a slouch in any way because the Y720 can be spec’dupto:

  • Intel i7 7700HQ Processor
  • 16/32GB RAM
  • 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD
  • 2TB HDD
  • NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB

Beside the impressive specifications, the Legion Y720 also comes with Dolby Atmos tuned speakers and audio and has native support for Xbox controllers integrated into its control software. Other features include an RGB keyboard, also configurable. The best part about the Lenovo is that unlike most gaming laptops, it is on the more affordable side as it comes in a range of configurations and can be spec’d to meet individual requirements.

2018 Premium Lenovo Legion Y720 15.6" FHD IPS Gaming VR Ready Laptop, Intel Quad-Core i7-7700HQ 32GB DDR4 512GB PCIe SSD +1TB HDD 6GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Backlit Keyboard Dolby USB Type-C Win 10 …

5. HP OMEN 17t VR Ready Gamer Notebook

The Omen is a fairly new line-up from HP as far as gaming laptops go. In principle, the Omen is quite close to Acer’s predator line-up as far as launch times go but HP isn’t really messing around with the Omen brand. Unlike the predator, the Omen is offered both as desktop gaming PC’s and Gaming Laptops. Specifications wise, it can be customised upto the following:

  • Intel i7 7700HQ
  • 32/64GB RAM’
  • 512GB SSD
  • 1TB HDD
  • NVIDIA GTX 1080 8GB

Other than this, you can also get it with bang and Olufsen speakers which are DTS certified (in its top end configuration). The USP of them Omen line-up is that it isn’t limited to the flagship category and its gaming laptops can be bought with lower end configurations.
