Gaming Laptops Reviews
The $5,400 MSI Titan 18 HX has a gorgeous screen, strong performance, and tons of RAM and storage, making for a pleasing luxury laptop. You'll still put up with very loud fans, though.
We like the new Mini-LED screen on Asus’s refreshed ROG Strix Scar 18, but this massive laptop needs to do more to justify its price.
Lenovo spared nothing designing the Legion 9i Gen 8 – its tremendous performance and high-end features are unmatched.
The Dell G15 is a strong mid-range performer with a bright 1080p display and some fun color options. But the colors are limited to very specific configurations.
Acer’s Nitro 16 delivers fluid gaming performance and doesn’t skimp on screen quality or battery life, though it could offer better speakers and less bloatware.
The Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 X3D is the only laptop with the AMD Ryzen 9 745HX3D. It offers strong gaming performance on par with Intel's chips and has plenty of ports, but it's expensive.
The HP Omen 16 doesn't stand out much, but it's a good performer for the price and offers plenty of ports and upgrade options.
The Alienware x16 includes a powerful RTX 4080 and a trick RGB touchpad but makes sacrifices regarding outright performance.
