1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for best gaming laptops

1.1 Laptop Display: Highlights

● Resolution – With higher resolution, the number of pixels on the screen increases, leading to more precise images. You may find new laptops that provide 4k or 1440p instead of standard 1080p. However, you will have to spend extra, for the hardware needed for power games. Nowadays, gamers prefer higher resolution as it makes the gaming experience more thrilling.

● Refresh Rate – A reasonable refresh rate means smoother on-screen actions. It makes your screen experience comfortable and more pleasant. This happens because the refresh rate redraws the image more times per second. Several gaming laptops adopt this technology, and they provide 120Hz or 144Hz and even higher refresh rates.

● Screen Size – Laptop form factor and screen size can be different. Nowadays, the most common screen configurations are 13, 15, and 17 inches. The border around the laptop screen (a.k.a. Thinner bezels) can adjust larger screens in relatively smaller form factors. Big screen size provides a joyful gaming experience.

● Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) – OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. OLEDs produce their light. They have no dependency on the backlight, and several gaming laptops use this technology. Most laptop screens come with LED-lit. LCD (liquid crystal displays) and OLED are superior to them as they deliver more contrast and deeper black levels. You can connect your laptop to the external monitor to enjoy an improved screen experience. With this option, you can carry your laptop with a portable form factor, and when you are home, you can connect it to the 4k resolution screen and 240Hz refresh rate or ultrawide aspect ratio.

If you plan to buy an external display with a more refresh rate and higher resolution, ensure that you have the right graphic card and CPU that goes well with the display. Prioritize your needs by comparing the specifications of the games you want to play against the components of the laptop you are considering buying. There are some common types of graphic card available in the market, such as Radeon and Nvidia.

Gamers prefer these brands of graphic cards for the ultimate gaming experience.

1.4 Storage

Solid-state gaming drives (SSDs) are considered far better than older mechanical drives (HDDs) as they can outperform older drives. To electronically read and write data, SSDs use a type of flash memory (NAND). Whereas, HDDs use mechanical platters spin and a moving drive head for reading and writing data.

SSDs can access data stored in various parts of the drive very quickly. They even load files and software faster than HDDs. This way, they save startup time. That's why SSDs are more efficient than HDDs.

As there is no presence and use of moving parts in SSDs like HDDs, they have a longer lifespan than older mechanical drives. Due to higher manufacturing costs, SSDs are costlier than usual HDDs. That is why some prefer both a high capacity HDD and an SSD to store the larger files. These days modern systems prefer to rely on SSDs.

You can find some famous brands of hard drives in the market such as Seagate, Toshiba, Hitachi, Western Digital, Samsung, G-Tech and SanDisk.

1.5 Laptop Storage: Highlights

● NVMe SSD- You get faster read and write speed with higher throughput (containing high-speed PCIe bus) than the conventional SATA interface.

 SATA SSD- These drives are faster and durable than HDDs. They are slower than NVMe drives. They possess the same SATA connectors as conventional HDDs.

● Intel® Optane memory technology - It pairs the new storage technology with intelligent memory. Data Retrieval is fast here. As a boot drive, it is preferable as it loads the critical application and data quickly.

● External storage- If you face limited storage issues, you must consider getting external hard drives or SSDs as they provide you additional space for storage. Nowadays, many users have extra external storages with them. This allows them to back up a massive chunk of data that they don't want in their system and can retrieve later when they need it.

1.6 RAM

RAM stands for random access memory. It temporarily stores the data for rapid retrievals, but it does not permanently store data like SSD or HDD. In case of power, loss of RAM resets the data, but it can access frequently used data rapidly than a storage device. With the help of additional RAM, it can run more processes simultaneously, and it can enable a system to switch between software quickly while running background programs. The requirement of certain RAM depends on your use.

● 2-4GB- For older games, internet browsing and working on lighter applications, this type of RAM is required. Software such as Chrome, Mozilla, Opera can work flawlessly here. You can play light games like Road Rash and GTA San Andreas with this. But there are some exceptions like Fortnite, Far Cry 4, Overwatch, and GTA 5 which you cannot play with a 4GB RAM system.

● 8GB- It is used in most work applications. For mid-range gaming, you can use 8 GB RAM. Games such as Just Cause 3, Mafia 3, Sniper Elite 4, Player Unknown's Battleground (PUBG), Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza Horizon 4, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Fortnite Battle Royale can be played flawlessly on the system containing 8 GB RAM.

● 16GB-Resources intensive gaming required this size of RAM. It allows multiple background apps, higher settings, and streaming software to work flawlessly.

 32GB- For gaming, content creating, memory-intensive processes like video rendering, and editing, this RAM is proven to be convenient. This kind of RAM provides features such as no lagging, no stuttering, less graphical hiccups, and your laptop's ultimate performance. They make your system fast and effective. There are other RAM features one must consider along with its memory size.

Key Features :

● Speed-The unit of measurement speed of RAM is MHz. Whenever a RAM gets a request from the CPU, RAM frequency calculates the rate at which your RAM accesses the memory.

 Upgradeability-RAM is installed at internal SO-DIMM slots. Some gaming laptops or PC allow access to the slots. You have to keep into consideration the amount of RAM required beforehand. Adding it later might not be a practical idea.

● SO-DIMM- RAM in the laptop is relatively small with different pin configurations. It fits into SO-DIMM, whereas RAM in a desktop fits into DIMM. You must note the fact that RAMs in laptops and desktops are not interchangeable.

1.7 Design: Key Features

There are various categories of gaming laptops. Entry-level options strive to give a balance between performance and portability. Nowadays, people don't rely on rugged gaming laptops; instead, they prefer premium laptops that can provide relatively thin and lightweight thermal designs. There are some finest premium laptops available in the market these days such as Apple Macbook Pro 16-INCH, HP Omen 15 (R7), HP Envy 15, Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5, Dell XPS 15, Apple Macbook Air, Dell XPS 13, Asus Rog Zephyrus G14. They also come with high-performance components in them. They are stylish in look and provide durability. They come with a drawback as they are super costly than other laptops. When thinking about buying your brand new laptop, you must consider factors such as power, portability, price, performance, and available ports.

● Build quality-Nowadays people prefer the aluminium casing in place of the plastic case as it provides durability and a sleeker appearance.

 Bezels-Thin bezels reduce the screen border's size and thereby, you can have a small laptop. Similar screen size is maintained here.
