You haven’t really experienced PC gaming if you’ve been playing on a laptop instead of a desktop. You’ve enjoyed the convenience of taking your games anywhere, but you’ve sacrificed playability for mobility. Your games are rarely pretty. You run things on mid-to-low settings. The newest games struggle. But with…
Just when did gaming laptops get so thin and powerful? A year ago, thin meant weak—but today there are tons of sleek notebooks that can play the latest PC games at maximum levels of detail. I decided to discover which ones are actually worth your money.
For years now, the Razer Blade has been the go-to laptop for gamers who want a little style mashed up with their function. The 2016 version is the best yet: It’s lighter, faster, and—critically—$400 cheaper. Yup, Razer made its sharpest Blade yet.
Acer doubled down on gaming at the IFA tech show in Berlin, unveiling a barrage of new gaming gear including a Predator tablet and phone, 15- and 17-inch gaming laptops with Intel’s new Skylake processors, and powerful PCs—plus a 200Hz ultra-wide curved display.
If the Philips AmbiLux TV stole my heart with its audacious projected immersive lighting tech, the batshit-crazy ASUS ROG GX700 water-cooled gaming laptop has had the same effect for me but in a laptop. This thing is an absolute beast.
Want a thin gaming laptop? We have a whole guide for that—but the ASUS G501 wasn’t the best laptop on our list. In fact, I kind of dismissed it with just three sentences. It deserves more. Let’s take a slightly deeper look.
I'm typing this on a laptop with a real keyboard. Real, as in without the compromise in size, tactility or function that you've come to expect in laptops. I don't really know how to express how strange that is.
Convertibles? Whatever. Ultrabooks? Idgaf. A damn huge laptop with a mechanical keyboard built right in? Now we're getting somewhere.
If you want a laptop that can play graphically intensive games, you're in a tough spot. Generally you can opt for something crazy expensive but portable, or something hulking and a little but cheaper. MSI's new GS30 Gaming Shadow notebook offers a middle ground: Take a slim laptop on the go, and plug into a…
Gaming laptops are going mobile. Of course, the word "laptop" means that's always been the idea behind these machines. But until recently, gaming on the go meant being strapped with a pretty hefty piece of computing. Such massive hardware, usually with a scorching hot chassis and shit battery life, makes you wonder if…

Ah, beautiful summer. A time for barbecues, frolicking, the sun's ceaseless rays, the resulting blistering burns, perpetual sweating, sand in crevices you didn't know you had—er, on second thought, probably safest just to wait it out indoors. Because don't listen to them; the gadgets can love you back.
On the hunt for a slick and streamlined monster machine of a laptop? Consider Origin's EON17-S gaming notebook. If its 17.3-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 2GB Nvidia GTX 485M GPU, and 32GB dual-channel RAM doesn't grab you, maybe its 2nd generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5/i7 processors will. And if even that doesn't do…
Dell's Alienware M11x already offered up some potent graphics, especially for a laptop of its size. Now—just a few months after release—the M11x is getting a Core i7 CPU upgrade that makes it a powerhouse in every sense.
Dell's promise: that the Alienware M11x is the "most powerful 11-inch gaming laptop" around. And they're right! It's hard to imagine packing much more oomph into such a portable frame. Then again, there's a reason Muggsey Bogues never won MVP.
This big 18.4-incher with Windows 7 has plenty for gamers to drool over. A Core i7 mobile processor and 1GB Nvidia GeForce GTS 250M graphics should crunch out respectable framerates, and the Blu-ray drive and Harmon/Kardon speakers are nice, too.
As you may already know, Alienware has a gaming laptop coming out next month with a name that automatically sets the bar impossibly high: "Allpowerful." The latest ad in their teaser campaign features a riddle that has been cracked by Larven on the NotebookReview forums.
