Acer Predator Helios 300 gives you plenty of configuration options. You can choose between 16 GB, 32 GB and go as far as 64 GB with the RAM.
You can also play with the hybrid storage configuration selecting a 512 GB, 1TB, or 2TB SSD in tandem with a 1 TB or 2 TB HDD.
As far as the processor and graphics card, you can only go with an Intel Hexa-Core i7-10750H latest generation and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060.
It’s not as fancy as its Triton 500 brother but it still has a backlit keyboard to help you in battle.
The Lenovo Legion 5 comes with an AMD Octa-Core Ryzen 7 4800H clocked at 2.9 GHz (can go up to 4.2 GHz) along with up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. It also comes packed with a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with 6 GB of GDDR6 memory.
The display is pretty nice as well: a 144 Hz WVA Anti-Glare display with Dolby Vision Display technology running at 1920 x 1080.
It’s also important to mention the excellent audio with 2 x 2W Harman Kardon speaker system and the Dolby Atmos headphone support.
All the laptops above are boosting fair 15-inch screens but if you feel like trying a bigger approach, you should definitely try ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 17 that brings a 17.3-inch FHD IPS display into the game.
Add an Intel 10th generation Core i9, 32GB DDR4, and a 1 TB PCIe SSD to the spoils. Of course, you can lower the budget by choosing an i7 processor instead, but you can also go higher because you can fit no less than 3 SSD into its chassis.
As you would probably expect, the gaming time is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super card.
HP’s OMEN X 2S comes with two displays and the one above the keyboard is a multi-touchscreen. It’s definitely not as big as the one from Asus Zephyrus Duo 15 but it’s still useful because you can interact with apps like Twitch, Discord, Spotify, and the OMEN Command Center during gameplay.
The main 4K and 15.6-inch screen is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q design and 8 GB GDDR6 dedicated memory. The second screen is only 5.98-inch but it has FHD resolution.
The processor is a hexa-core 9th generation Intel i7-9750H and the RAM goes up to 16 GB. As for the storage, you can count on a 1 TB SSD.
Yes, there are a lot of gaming laptop options from ASUS and ROG Zephyrus S is the slimmest and lightest of them all, being only 0.6 inches thick and weighing 4.63 lbs. And that is only thanks to a CNC-milled metal chassis and the narrow bezels of the 15.6-inch screen.
Unfortunately, the small form-factor comes with sacrifices because Asus only fit a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card and an 8th generation Intel i7 processor so it can’t go against any of its predecessors in terms of power.
You will have to settle with 24GB DDR4 memory a 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD and its sleek chassis.
