With the numerous products that come out every year, it became also difficult to buy something extraordinary that is ready to use, there is no exception when it comes to laptops, companies and engineers almost every year produce something new and much more powerful than what preceded it. In this article we will give you a glimpse of the best gaming laptops that are out so far. Without any delays, we provide you with the best.
Origin PC New EON15-S
This may be a new brand in the market but it did live to the expectations of the customers. It is designed with a 17.3 inches screen and although it is that small the laptop made it to the top of the best sellers. The reason behind the success can only be traced to the level of quality the company puts into the hardware. EON15-S is equipped with a 4GB GeForce Nvidia GTX 980M and an SSD designed by Samsung to assure smooth and fast performance. Origin has a good option when it comes to price, the company allows you to have a customized laptop, you can choose what hardware you want to come with the PC, you can either choose something expensive or cheap depends on your budget, but they don’t keep the hardware limited, you can upgrade your laptop however you like.
Origin know the struggle PC gamers face with their laptop that is why they have tried to work on making it last longer, so they have adjusted the brightness, when the PC is delivered, you will find that it is set on the lowest level of brightness, this is the best they could do because they too know that gaming laptops have a very short life term, to some extent.
If there is one reason why you should like the EON15-S it would be the hardware and the overall performance, the laptop requires enough electricity to run properly, let’s say that when the device is plugged, you play a game at 60FPS but once you unplug it the frame per second will go down to 30, the brightness will be reduced and the details will become of less quality. Nvidia is well known for its hostility against low power gaming, the latest patch had made this option nearly impossible. The battery life can last for 1 or 2 hours maximum when you are playing a game with your laptop unplugged.

Asus RoG G751JY-DH71
The weight of gaming laptops is always heavy, their style is always sexy, they are always upgradeable and the performance is most of the time godly, the Asus RoG G751JY-DH71 is a laptops that all these features are applied on.

in comparison with its rival the GS60 Ghost Pro-064, Asus RoG G751JY-DH71 is nothing but a beast, the former is designed with small fans to get rid of the heat where as the Asus have its own cool cooling system, it is less noisy and does not get overheat quickly, the only thing in common between these two laptops and the reason why they are considered rivals is the hardware, the GS60 Ghost Pro-064 has a Core i7-4710HQ, GeForce GTX 970M, and a 128GB SSD, technically, Asus is still superior but it is way too light than the Asus, the former weight 2 Kg whereas the latter weighs 4.15 Kg.
Asus have smartly brought this laptop to existence, they know that in the universe of gaming there is nothing more important than graphics, this is why they focused on attaching a strong card graphic and just suitable processor, most of the companies use strong processors in laptops such as i7–4720HQ for instance, but origins used only i7-4710HQ which is inferior to some extent to the former processor. The 4720HQ is a quad core that ranges between 2.5 and 3.2 GHz which makes the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M supportable, it can support up to 64GB, but usually a 16GB or 24GB will suffice, as we have said earlier you can customize your own computer.

The battery life is short, but then again, which gaming computer has a long life battery, if not plugged it at can last up to 3 hours maximum while gaming, but this of course is not that big of a problem since you can use the Asus RoG G751JY-DH71 plugged in.
MSI GS60 Ghost Pro-064

When you buy this laptop don’t think about playing games without it being unplugged, the battery can last up to 2 hours maximum depends on the game you’re playing, let’s say for instance you are playing league of legends at the highest graphics details, this laptop will get you through two 5v5 games but with only 30 or 50 FPS maximum, but when you are playing the Witcher 3 the laptop will last for merely 40 minutes with 30 FPS maximum, when plugged, you will get the best performance and details from both of these games.
