How to Choose The Best Gaming Laptop

We are now living in a digital era. It is undeniable that our children are already very familiar with a variety of technological stuff. These days, one of the entertainments which usually can be enjoyed at home such as playing games on the computer, console, or gadgets.

My son is happy playing computer games on holidays. Mainly the computer used for work, to separate the function, some time ago I bought PS 2, but the quality of the graphics wasn't optimal. Now, there are PS Series which more sophisticated with better specification. In addition, there is also console game, X-BOX, that has really nice graphic. 

Between game consoles and laptop with gaming specification, I've researched for each advantages. Many people use laptops for gaming. Why do they choose a laptop for gaming? The unit can also be used for learning, on-line, designing, or supporting the work. Various types of gaming laptops now widely available.

Gaming laptop usually have a high price with specifications that is suitable for playing games. I did some research on the specifications and price of some gaming laptops.

My husband has built a PC for gaming, the PC has many advantages, one of them is easy to upgrade the hardware. However, the laptop also has more value, it's simple, efficient, and easy to carry anywhere.


Here, what we need to be considered when choosing a gaming laptop:

VGA Chip-set Series
People who will buy a gaming laptop usually is more concerned with a large memory on VGA or VRAM than the VGA chip set series. In fact, the chip set series is different with memory. VRAM is important but in gaming, it is not really needed. The first digit on the chip set indicates his generation, the higher number has the better performance of a VGA. The second and third digits, is the information technology.

Processor
It should be noted that the processor's role can not be underestimated. The more games we have on the computer, the more complex calculations on the processor. The number of processor cores can lighten the rendering process performed by VGA. From several sources I was advised to choose a laptop with a non-ULV processor, because the processor ULV series is not good for gaming.

RAM
The greater capacity of RAM which is owned laptop will run smoothly also the process of multitasking.

Hard Disk
The hard disk capacity should be at least 500 GB. If you have more budgetary, you can upgrade it. Upgrading the hard disk to increase storage capacity can improve the performance of the laptop.

Laptop screen size
The screen size can be a comfort indicator in playing the game. If you want to get a gaming experience more interesting, choose 17 " laptop.

USB Port
Choose a laptop that offers diverse connectivity. Make sure the laptop has minimal ports in the following: USB 2.0 port, USB 3.0 port, HDMI port, D-Sub port, USB 2.0 port, and a USB 3.0 port is of course very important to install peripherals that support the comfort of gaming such as mouse, keyboard, or joystick. If you intend to play the game and want to connect to LCD TVs or monitors larger screen size, select a laptop that also provides a HDMI port and a D-Sub port.

Price
Today, there are many gaming laptops with competitive prices and specifications. Therefore, we must be wiser when trying to buy a gaming laptop. There, so many gaming laptops that are coveted, but the price is high. There are also some options for some affordable gaming laptop. If I see the price list in my country, here [harga notebook Toshiba], Toshiba Satellite could be one of the options for gaming laptop, the price is not too high. On the list, I also could find some special series of Asus, DELL, and HP for gaming laptop that could be put in my wish-lists as well.

So, I should consider these seven points before choosing which the best gaming laptop that suits me for sure.

  7. Open up several programs, including Photoshop, and try to see how the toolbars fit in, how big is the editing space (the image being edited), and how sharp the actual image is at that particular screen resolution. techfavicon
