The Best Gaming Laptop

A gaming laptop does not necessarily need to be the most powerful or the prettiest, but it should excel at most of your gaming needs. Of hundreds of laptops out there, ASUS ROG G750JS is our pick for the best gaming laptop.

ASUS ROG G750JS boasts unrivaled performance at a price point of $1,735. The price is not the cheapest but you are definitely getting the most bang for your buck.

The large 17.3 inches of screen real estate will give you a full 1920*1080 pixels of playing arena.

The 3.4GHz Intel i7 and the NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 870M provide absolutely stellar gaming performance.

It boots incredibly fast.

1TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive gives you plenty of room to play with. You will see an awesome performance while launching any program installed on the 256GB Solid State Drive.

ASUS ROG G750JS also comes with the ASUS GPU Tweak program, offering an optional 5% GPU over-clock when the laptop is plugged in.

Thanks to the 16GB of memory, this machine also performs really well in editing programs. As opposed to most games, the editing progams are actually able to utilize the full 16GB of memory for optimal performance.

I am not a big fan of it’s battery life. It also feels a bit heavier at 9.9 pounds.

That being said, I’d recommend this product to anyone that’s looking for a high-performance laptop that can easily support the high-spec demands of gamers and game developers alike.
