Gaming on a budget can be quite tough . I remember browsing the internet for hours trying to find a budget gaming laptop. Trust me on this one , it was amongst one of the hardest things I have ever done. Sure there were a lot of great laptops but most of them sadly were out of my price range.
While you may find a list of the various types of gaming laptops complete with their pros and cons. I would like to share my findings of the 3 best laptops that I have found which are perfect for those gamers whose budget is under $500.
So without any further ado lets look at some of these budget laptops.
While many users look unfavorably upon the Intel i3 Skylake range , in my experience I have found it to be amongst the best in Budget gaming laptops. Also because the Skylake series also as a powerful Intel HD Graphics 520 chipset. This means you can run most new games with an ok frame rate. There is also 6 GB of RAM, which can further be upgraded to a maximum of 16 GB if you want to. It also has a touchscreen and a 1 TB hard drive meaning that it is a very solid buy for under $500.
The second laptop that we are going to get to know a little bit better is the Lenovo Z50. This is your classic mid range budget laptop. Although it has a somewhat mediocre display it more than makes up for it with its other features.
It has an AMD FX-7500 APU which is a quad core advanced processing unit. The processor runs at a minimum speed of 2.1 GHz. It also has 8 GB of DDR3L RAM. There is also a 1 TB hard drive to go along with as well . Hence you can store a plethora of movies and games whenever you please. Lenovo Z50 is good enough to play most of the recent titles that have been heading out to the PC. I recently ran Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice on the laptop , and although there were minor performance issues with the frame rate, the game ran well for the most part.
The last laptop on our list is an absolute powerhouse, and can run most games at a decent setting. The laptop has a built in 8 GB RAM to go along with a 1TB hard disk , so you can not only run all your favorite games , but also have enough space to store them as well.It also has an AMD Quad Core 1.8 GHz processor and a Radeon R7 GPU.
So there you have it , these are some of the very best gaming laptops that you can find for under $500. Being a gamer on a budget is quite challenging and hopefully this list can help you get a laptop within your desired budget.
