The arrival of the holidays is always a good time to enjoy one of the most common entertainment today: video games. One of the platforms that exist to enjoy them are gaming laptops , which are increasingly offering higher quality. We show what the models that have a screen should have and that are cheap so that they can always be right.
The truth is that nowadays laptops have become good options to enjoy the most demanding games and, of course, the well-known Fortnite. These teams today are very capable of achieving a high frame rate per second and, therefore, achieving an excellent user experience. And, all this, with possibilities in terms of portability that are far superior to those offered by desktop computers, despite the fact that these are not the lightest computers among the laptops on the market.

Cheap but solvent gaming laptops
In this case, the recommendations focus on the equipment that has a price that is below 1,000 euros . An amount that is not the highest among the computers we are talking about but that allows us to get a more than capable computer to run games with three-dimensional graphics with a ease that, without a doubt, means that you have no problem being the best in games you play online from home.
Obviously, in terms of design, most of the models that exist in the market conform to what is expected of a gaming laptop. Therefore, taking it to games with friends makes it worth noting that … in these teams, it is often what it is about.
The hardware these computers must have
Obviously you cannot expect the most powerful components on the market to be included, but you should look for the hardware to be good enough so that no “lag” is seen when playing games. Thus, the requirement is that the CPU is an Intel Core i5 as a minimum (ideally, it should be an i7, but the price is a difficult limitation to avoid). Regarding RAM, what should be checked is that it is at 8 GB since, otherwise, it is possible to have problems with some very demanding titles. But again, if it is possible to get more, better than better.
Another of the basic things in these gaming laptops is that a dedicated graphic is included, since the integrated ones are not enough. Thus, ideally, an NVIDIA GeForce that includes at least 2 GB of GDDR5 memory should be included to ensure that the capacity of this component when performing fill jobs and creating shadow is the best possible and, for therefore, what is enjoyed on the screen is exactly what the game proposes.
Since we are talking about the screens, those that are at the price that we have indicated are 15.6 inches , which are enough to be able to play almost anywhere. The resolution must always be Full HD , since this is the resolution that the aforementioned hardware allow to use with solvency. Apart from this, it is interesting to check that the refreshment is high and that the response time is as low as possible so that there are no problems such as the wake effect.
Some more details to check
The first thing is that the connectivity is good, especially in what has to do with the WiFi adapter (which must be Dual Band and if possible compatible with MIMO) and USB , since these are the ones used to use accessories such as additional keyboards and mice. To this, it must be added that the cooling system is as complete as possible, since the included hardware is often pushed to the limit.
Finally, there should always be a software that allows adjusting the performance of gaming laptops in order to personalize the operation of the equipment as much as possible. Besides, and if possible, the use of colors on the keyboard to highlight spaces of use is something that is positive that it is included in these devices.
