The year is about to come to a close and sooner or later, year-end lists will be flooding the internet, TV and radio. It is no different with serious gamers.

We list down five of the best gaming laptops, in no particular order, to help people with their Christmas list.

Asus ROG GL502

  • CPU: 2.6GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ (quad-core, 6MB cache, up to 3.5GHz with Turbo Boost)

  • RAM: 16GB (DDR4, 2,133MHz)
  • Screen: 15.6-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) in-plane switching (IPS) display with G-Sync
  • Storage: 256GB SSD (NVMe PCIe), 1TB HDD (7,200 rpm)

The Asus Rog Strix is one of the best laptops in terms f Full HD gaming. The only problem with this laptop is its battery life. Regular usage will last from three to four hours of battery life.


AlienWare 17

  • Storage: 128GB - 512GB PCIe SSD + 1TB HDD (7,200 rpm)

Tech Radar has a bit of an issue with the AlienWare's price but they insist that it is worth every penny. The GPU Amplifier allows the laptop to gain additional power from a full-on desktop though the AlienWare is completely capable on its own. As such, users can enjoy any game at the highest settings.

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro

  • CPU: 2.6GHz Intel Core i7 6700HQ (quad-core, 6MB cache, up to 3.5GHz with Turbo Boost)

  • Storage: 128GB NVMe M.2 SSD by PCIe Gen3x4; 1TB HDD (7,200 rpm)

The MSI Ghost Pro is the perfect laptop for playing the latest games including the ones that are yet to be released. Its state of the line processors and graphic chips are the right specs for such games. The lack of an SSD can be solved easily through replacements.

The Razer Blade Stealth's sleek design is enough to attract those who want to get their hands on a laptop but the specifications will surely impress real gamers.
