The gaming world continues to be competitive, and one of the factors that has always been as important as the gaming skill, is the power of your gaming machine. To be able to play at solid frames, and eye boggling graphics, the answer has always been a very powerful gaming PC (no Macs in here please). However, not everyone has the cash to buy laptops that cost the north of a $1000. Thankfully, with the vigorous competitions between computer hardware titans such as INTEL, AMD, and NVIDIA, powerful gaming PCs can be bought for less than $1000.
Here is a list of powerful gaming laptops under $1000:
SPECIFICATIONS: CPU: Intel core i5-9300H @2.2 GHz | GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650-4GB VRAM dedicated | RAM: 8GB | STORAGE: 128GB SSD / 1TB HDD @ 5400 RPM | RESOLUTION: 1920 X 1080 @15.6inch screen size
The 9th generation core i5 from Intel partnered with the 1650 graphics card from Nvidia allows the DELL G3 laptop to devour triple A titles with ease. The presence of a comfortable keyboard, and full HD resolution screen makes it the perfect beast to carry along on your gaming adventures. And did I mention the awesome battery life of 6hrs 40mins.
Oh yes, it would seem Dell knows just how to cook the right cocktail of budget gaming laptops that perform incredibly well. Here is another one.
SPECIFICATIONS: CPU: Intel core i7-8750H @2.2 GHz | GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 MAX Q EDITION-6GB VRAM dedicated | RAM: 16GB | STORAGE: 1TB HDD @ 5400 RPM | RESOLUTION: 1920 X 1080 @15.6inch screen size
The DELL G7 15 is a very powerful laptop with its 8th generation Intel Core i7 and Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card. This beautiful beast is going to be worth all the stacks you are willing to spend on it. And yes, you guessed it. It is below $1000. As a side not we can mention that this model also comes with 17-inch screen that is priced at $1,179.99. The battery life is not that great but it is expected of a machine like this to have little battery uptime. I don’t see you playing Call of Duty on battery anyways.
It is time to talk about another titan in the laptop gaming universe, the MSI GF63 8RB. Here are the specifications of this unicorn.
SPECIFICATIONS: CPU: Intel core i5-8750H @2.2 GHz | GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti -4GB VRAM dedicated | RAM: 16GB | STORAGE: 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD / 1TB HDD @ 5400 RPM | RESOLUTION: 1920 X 1080 @15.6inch screen size
Okay, so maybe with this laptop, you are not going to be the next NINJA, but trust me, you can extract some major juice from its 8th generation core i5, and its GTX 1050 Nvidia graphics cards. To top it off, this laptop is slim, and has incredible performance for its price.
This list would not be complete without this laptop on the list. The HP OMEN 15 is a beast in its own right. You can get the base model for as little as $639. Better versions go up to almost $2K. It’s well worth it. Check out what HP packs the Omen 15 in this video.
SPECIFICATIONS: CPU: Intel core i5-8300H @2.4 GHz | GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti-4GB VRAM dedicated | RAM: 12GB | STORAGE: 128GB M.2 NVMe SSD / 1TB HDD @ 7200 RPM | RESOLUTION: 1920 X 1080 @15.6inch screen size| 144Hz refresh rate.
