Gaming Laptops

When you find the best gaming laptop, you can enjoy the freedom of an immersive gaming experience that isn't restricted to a desktop computer. Serious and casual players alike can benefit from the high-performance features of gaming laptops such as excellent graphics and extremely fast processing. Staples carries a variety of laptops from some of the most reliable brands so you can find the one that's right for your home.

Best Gaming Laptop Features
Gaming laptops from brands such as Alienware, Acer and Lenovo are specifically designed to deliver reliable performance with all sorts of complex games including those that require heavy processing and high-definition graphics. High-performance laptops include cutting-edge processors for fast and responsive results. Most models also come with at least 1 Terabyte of internal hard drive space, sometimes split between a traditional and solid-state drive. The amount of RAM is another important aspect. Many gaming-specific laptops have at least 8GB of RAM to make even the most complex games play smoothly and reduce the risk of lag.

Graphics are an important part of any gameplay experience and most gaming laptops include large 15-inch or 17-inch screens with extremely high resolution. Many brands offer 1080p or full 4K resolution. The graphics card and dedicated graphics memory are also important. NVIDIA high-performance graphics cards are commonly included in laptops for gamers.

Choosing the Right Gaming Laptop
When you are trying to find the best gaming laptop, there are a few additional aspects to consider along with the processor and graphics capabilities. It's important to have the ability to upgrade the internals if desired. Many models include easy access panels and ports that allow you to instantly add more memory or an upgraded hard drive. The sound is another essential part of a satisfying gaming experience and laptops with multiple speakers offer high-quality stereo performance. Some models include integrated subwoofers and allow headsets or speakers to be connected via a traditional port or Bluetooth.

Adequate cooling is extremely important for complex games and long playing sessions. Most models include upgraded fans on the side or along the back of the laptop. Some brands also allow specially-designed devices to be inserted into the frame (usually via the optical drive bay) for additional cooling power. Some fans alternate direction to prevent dust from settling and clogging the vents.

Do Gaming Laptops Use Windows or MAC Operating Systems?
Most gaming models include the most recent version of the Windows operating system. Some brands also pre-install gameplay enhancement software that makes it easy to customize settings and program macros for individual games.

What Additional Features Improve the Gaming Experience?
Many high-performance laptops include additional features designed for gamers. Backlit keyboards add style and make it easy to keep your commands precise even in low lighting. Some brands offer customizable light settings to highlight important sections of the keyboard like the number pad and other movement keys. For gamers who enjoy video chatting or streaming gameplay videos, an HD webcam and integrated microphone are excellent features.

What Are the Best Gaming Laptop Accessories?
Most gaming laptops include several different connectivity options for accessories such as headsets, gaming mice, and additional monitors. There are usually several USB ports and some include HDMI outputs and Thunderbolt ports as well. You can choose Bluetooth-capable models for wireless connectivity with compatible devices.
