LAPTOP GAMING IN 2022

LAPTOP GAMING IN 2022

Once upon a time, PC gaming was something people would do on their laptops as a fun distraction. It was a diversion—a "non-essential" function of their PC—and very much a secondary consideration (if it was even considered at all) when it came time to buy a new machine. Today, it’s a different story.

If you're a gamer, PC gaming isn’t just another thing you do on a laptop—it’s the main event. If a laptop can’t deliver a top-tier gaming experience, it’s not the right laptop for you. So, how do you choose from the best gaming laptop deals? Start with this guide. We’ve assembled the most important aspects of gaming laptops so you can make an informed decision.

The current generation of gaming laptops virtually erases the compromises that earlier machines forced onto gamers. Less power, fewer options, smaller and lower resolution screens, and poor audio… all things of the past. Today's best gaming laptops running Windows 10 are truly portable versions of their desktop cousins, and more than a match for gaming consoles.

With all that power and speed, the best gaming laptops can deliver any gaming experience on the planet, from high-frame rate FPS titles, to fully immersive VR. Needless to say, if they can do all of that, why would you want to be tethered to a desktop?

KEY FEATURES OF A GREAT GAMING LAPTOP

You’ll find the following features on most laptops, but they play such a critical role in a gaming laptop, it’s important to make sure you’re getting the right setup. Shop the best gaming laptop deals here.

Graphics Icon

Graphics Card

The graphics card (or GPU) is the beating heart of a gaming laptop. The goal is to pick a discrete graphics card that can deliver a great visual experience for your favorite type of game. If you plan to run Metro Exodus at 4K with the game cranked to its maximum settings, you’ll probably want a top-of-the-line NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 Super, or a GeForce 3070 from the latest 2021 lineup of GeForce GPUs. But most esports games will run just fine on the GTX 1650, or 1660 Ti. Likewise, the RX 6000 Series from AMD’s Radeon™ series of GPUs, is a good choice for gamers who prefer strategy to strafing.

Pro tip: Avoid integrated graphics unless you’re a very casual gamer.

Processor Icon

PROCESSOR

As important as the graphics card is to a gaming laptop, the processor (or CPU) is just as key, because these two components work together to deliver the overall performance of the machine.

You’ll be offered a choice of up to 11th generation Intel® processors, ranging from the Core™ i5, to the Core™ i9, with several clock-speed options. Select models also feature powerful new AMD Ryzen™ 3000 Series processors. Consider the Core™ i5 or AMD Ryzen™ 7 your baselines, anything less will be unbearably sluggish. There’s very little a dual-core i9 or Ryzen 9 chip can’t do, which makes them ideal for most gamers. Only step up from there if your pockets are deep and your appetite for destruction is unlimited.

memory Icon

RAM

Memory (RAM) determines how efficiently your processor can work. RAM is measured in size (GB) and speed (MHz). Too little of each, and the CPU will be forced to borrow space from your hard drive or SSD. Too much, and you’ll see very little performance improvement for the money.

For today’s most demanding and competitive games, like Call of Duty: Warzone and Apex Legends, you’ll want to consider having at least 16GB of installed memory at all times.

Storage Icon

STORAGE

There are two main kinds of laptop storage: Spinning disks known as hard drives, and the non-moving SSDs (solid state drive). Traditional hard drives have more capacity, meaning you can save more files like photos, videos, and apps, and cost less per GB. SSDs use similar technology to RAM, which makes them way faster. Unfortunately, current technology makes SSDs much more expensive per GB, so they tend to have smaller capacities. A truly flexible gaming laptop will have dual drive options, giving you the benefit of speed and capacity in equal measure.

display Icon

DISPLAY

A gaming laptop's display can range from a screen size of 15 inches to 17 inches. While size certainly does matter, it's actual resolution, refresh rate, and quality that matters more. A full HD, 1920 x 1080 resolution will let you play most games at the highest quality. Touchscreens might be handy on 2 in 1 gaming laptops, but they’re unnecessary on traditional designs. Look for IPS or OLED technologies, as both of these will help maximize off-angle viewing.

Of course, a gaming laptop doesn’t need to be limited to its built-in screen. External gaming monitors can give you a larger screen, higher resolution, and better brightness and contrast when you’re at home or at work. Plus, many Legion gaming monitors come with NVIDIA® G Sync® or AMD FreeSync® technology built-in. These technologies reduce or eliminate screen tearing that can occur, leading to an overall smoother visual experience

Keyboard Icon

KEYBOARD

In the desktop gaming world, there’s a lot of enthusiasm for mechanical keyboards. Though rare on laptops, mechanical keyboards do exist and can provide a “clicky" tactile experience. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get superb performance from a regular gaming laptop keyboard.

Look for models that feature anti-ghosting and a high n-key rollover. Keyboards that have a standard pitch (size of the key) and travel (vertical movement when pressed) will be easier to type on and more accurate when gaming. Additionally, RGB backlighting, though not a necessity, can really add a wow factor.

Battery Icon

BATTERY LIFE

Gaming laptops are power-hungry, because gaming is a processor-intensive activity. You won’t find many machines that are both portable and that give you all-day battery life. Instead, consider four to six hours as the current benchmark for decent battery life.

If longer battery life is really important, you’ll need to pick a gaming laptop with a smaller screen size, SSD-only storage, and lower-performance CPU and GPU.

Operating system Icon

OPERATING SYSTEM

When it comes to gaming, there’s no better operating system than Windows 10. Enabling Game Mode in Windows 10 allows the OS to squeeze every bit of performance from your laptop, prioritizing processor and graphics card resources to your game. DirectX 12, an integral part of Windows 10 produces higher frame rates and reduced latency for breathtaking graphics. And with Windows 10 Pro availability on select Legion laptop models, you’ll have a great gaming laptop for work tasks as well.

Accessories Icon

ACCESSORIES

While PC gaming accessories don’t come packaged in with most new gaming laptops, they’re a critical add-on if your goal is to be competitive at any level. A great gaming mouse, like the Legion M500, is going to be an absolutely necessary add-on for almost any type of gaming. And for upper-echelon competition, you’ll want to invest in a quality gaming headset to ensure you never get caught unawares. Check out the Legion H500 Pro 7.1 sound sound gaming headset, and you’ll always hear your enemy approaching.

Pro tip: Avoid integrated graphics unless you’re a casual gamer.

About Lenovo Gaming Laptops

Are you a gamer looking for cheap but good gaming laptops? While every gaming enthusiast prefers high-end PCs and gaming desktops for their performance and experience, portability often takes superiority, and top-budget gaming laptops become their number one choice.


That said, a gaming laptop isn’t just about specs all the time. Instead, they are like an all-in-one computer that should also be considered for their display and keyboard functions.


So, if you are looking for the best gaming laptop deals, Lenovo offers something for everyone. Keep reading to explore all the details on the top budget gaming laptops.

 

Who Should Get Cheap But Good Gaming Laptops?


Not everyone should invest in laptops designed for gaming. If you already have gaming computers or an all-in-one desktop at home that serves the purpose, there is no need to hunt for new smart devices and machines. However, if you aim to benefit from the following factors, you need the best gaming laptops over gaming desktops any day.

 

Portability Is Your Priority


One of the significant drawbacks of desktop computers is that they bind you to one place. These monitors don't let you socialize or shift your surroundings for a change. As a result, you may get bored with gaming pretty soon. The best gaming laptop is going to a portable machine that can still handle everything the game can throw its way. 


However, if that’s not what you aim for, getting a laptop is your best option. Then, you can take your game anywhere you want, even if you are traveling with your friends or family. Besides, gaming in a different environment every time feels more interesting, and that’s what prevents a gamer from getting bored.

 

You Find Laptops Better than Consoles


Many people consider gaming consoles much more efficient than laptops. However, when it comes to making a better investment, a gaming laptop always takes the lead. People often ask, are gaming laptops good for video editing or other tasks and the answer is yes.


While a gaming console is designed specifically for gaming only, laptops can be used for multiple reasons. For instance, you can use it to play games, watch your shows, do your college assignments and even edit videos for your Instagram page. Gaming laptops are not a one trick pony like consoles are. While they have the power to run games well they are still laptops and can take on any task. Through one single investment, you get an all-in-one computer in a portable machine.

 

Powerful and Future Ready


One of the best things about Lenovo gaming laptops is that they have several components that make them ready for new technology and games. Of course, this implies that by making this investment, you are purchasing a product that will serve you for many coming years.


Unfortunately, this quality is missing in most gaming computers or desktops.

 

Better Resale


Interestingly, if you wish to sell your laptop in a few years, you won’t get disappointed. A gaming laptop has a good resale value, considering the quality and high-tech features. And since these laptops depreciate at a slower rate than desktops and consoles, you get a reasonable price for them every time.


So if you agree with the considerations above, a gaming laptop is for you. However, if you have a tight budget, you can always get cheap used gaming laptops to play your game.


Alternatively, Lenovo also offers many fantastic options with the best gaming laptops consumer reports that you can rely on. We provide our customers with both expensive and budget-friendly options, so they have a choice to pick from.


Mistakes to Avoid When Buying Cheap Used Gaming Laptops


If you have a tight budget, you might find going for a cheap or used gaming laptop convenient. However, remember that a gaming laptop is different from the best business laptop, and so you need to avoid inevitable mistakes to save yourself from regrets later.


        Whether you are looking for a windows tablet, android tablet, the best laptop for college students, or tablet computers, ensure to do proper research before heading to the market. At Lenovo alone, we offer so many options that you may get confused while looking for the right unit. 

        Don't equate quality with quantity. Make sure to evaluate each feature before giving it a green signal. Sometimes even the most expensive laptops fail to perform well, and the cheapest one’s surprise you. If you wonder are gaming laptops good for video editing, know that yes they are, and invest accordingly.

        Finally, don't buy a laptop because you need it today. While this rule also applies to even small business laptops or tablet computers, it is more than crucial for gaming ones.


A gaming laptop is an investment that is hard to make every day. While you can upgrade the accessories, you might find it hard to buy a new machine after every year. So ensure to get a unit that serves you for a long time.

 

What to Look For in the Best Gaming Laptops?


You need to consider some crucial and specific factors when making this investment. 


·         Graphics Card: You can’t compromise on the quality of a graphic card or Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). It is the soul of your gaming laptop. However, there are so many available in the market, and the one you select depends on the game settings you demand. For instance, if you want to use your Virtual reality (VR) headset and other accessories during gaming, you need a powerful GPU that can offer high settings. 

 

·         CPU or Processor: Again with a powerful game or accessories, you will require a processor that can fulfill the demand of your game. Some laptops also have desktop Central Processing Units (CPUs); however, get one that suits your budget the best.

 

·         Storage: Do you need a solid-state drive (SSD) or a hard drive? If you are looking for cheap used gaming laptops, you might find them having a 1TB hard drive. However, if that isn’t enough for you, you can look for some notebooks featuring small SSDs. The good thing is that if you currently can’t afford ample storage, you can get it upgraded when possible. 

 

·         RAM: A RAM of 8GB is only sufficient for average tasks. However, since gaming is a powerful experience, you should go for RAM of at least 16GB or more. 

 

·         Display: A gaming laptop should give you a powerful visual experience. Otherwise, it isn’t worth your money. If you want to go for huge laptops, there are many available with a screen size of 18 inches. However, we recommend you spend in sizes between 15 to 17 inches. Additionally, consider the resolution and refresh rate when selecting the display. For instance, avoid getting a laptop with a resolution below 1920 x 1080. Similarly, the refresh rate of 1080p might be adequate for some of you. Here is another essential tip. If you can, avoid getting a gaming laptop with a touch screen. Many 2 in 1 laptop have it, but they reduce the battery life and can also damage the display.


·         Keyboard: While keys with attractive backlighting might attract you, you should look beyond this feature when selecting a good-quality gaming laptop. For instance, if you can get a keyboard with a key travel of 2mm, that’s quite impressive again. Similarly, the actuation should be between 65 to 70 grams, providing enough resistance for your fingers. Also, if you can afford it, go for keyboards that provide RGB lighting for a better experience.


·         Computer Accessories: While many cheap gaming laptops don’t come with accessories, you will have to spend money on a Virtual reality (VR) headset or a gaming mouse for a competitive gaming experience. No one can stop you from enjoying your game if you can do that.

 

Best Gaming Laptops Consumer Reports


Finally, read through consumer reports and experiences before investing in a laptop if you don't want to waste your money. It is very convenient to buy small basic laptops, but getting a gaming one demands lots of homework and background checks.


Lucky for you, Lenovo offers many gaming laptops that have lived with their owners for many years. The best thing is that Lenovo provides a warranty with all its smart devices and offers quick customer service for anyone who requires it.


At Lenovo, we make sure that every consumer gets what they demand, and that’s what applies to our gaming laptops as well.

 

How Can You Improve the Performance of Your Gaming Laptop

Can a normal laptop be used for gaming?

 

While many gamers prefer to use specialized gaming laptops, a normal laptop can also be used for gaming if it meets certain criteria. Firstly, the laptop should have a powerful processor and enough RAM to run the latest games. Secondly, it should have a dedicated graphics card with its own video memory. Thirdly, the laptop's screen should be large enough to provide an immersive gaming experience, and it should have a fast refresh rate to minimize lag. Finally, the laptop should have good audio and cooling system to prevent overheating during long gaming sessions. While not all normal laptops will meet all of these criteria, some may still be suitable for gaming if they meet most of them. Ultimately, it is up to the gamer to decide whether a normal laptop or a gaming laptop is right for them.

 

What is difference between gaming laptop and normal laptop?

 

A gaming laptop is a high-performance laptop that is capable of playing the most demanding games. Gaming laptops usually have powerful processors, large amounts of RAM, and high-end graphics cards. They are also often equipped with special features like backlit keyboards and large screen sizes. Normal laptops, on the other hand, are designed for more general use. They typically have lower specs than gaming laptops, and they are not typically equipped with gaming-specific features. However, normal laptops can still be used for gaming if they are powerful enough and if the user is willing to make some adjustments, such as lowering the graphics settings. So if you're looking for a laptop that can handle intensive games without any issues, a gaming laptop is the way to go. However, if you're not interested in gaming or don't need the extra power, a regular laptop will suffice.
